Day 1986 - Chillies

It's time to spice up your life!

Here in the land of Deep Fried Fruit I am always looking for ways to help us all feel fit and fabulous in our mid life.  According to a study in the British Journal of Nutrition we can lose weight without dieting simply by adding some spice to our life.  Yep, eating chillies is (apparently) a natural hunger suppressant and fills you up quicker.  But more than that - scientists at the State University of New York at Buffalo found the capsaicin in chillies triggers the release of feel-good endorphins.  So you can curb your hunger and feel fabulous all in one mouthful! 

Buffalo wings anyone?

  1. I love chilli I put chillies in everything from pasta to stir frys, and I admit I'm usually so full after dinner I don't have sweets so it must be true :)


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
