Turns out, cayenne pepper can elevate more than a dish’s flavor. A sprinkle of the hot spice can make us eat less in general and cut cravings for fatty, sweet, or salty foods. We don’t recommend dumping an entire container of pepper on a dish (ouch!), but a touch of the spice can help the body burn fat more effectively over a short period of time.

Do it Today: Sprinkle cayenne pepper onto a dish to help reduce appetite and boost metabolism.
