Boost Your Metabolism
By Alya Alyssa Kattan
I don’t know about you but I love food with lots of flavor-the more the better! I am always using all different kinds of herbs to spice up my meals. How great is it that eating something full of flavor can help with the weight loss process and add years to your life!! They boost your metabolism so you’ll burn more calories and you’ll continue burning calories at rest 3 hours after you have finished eating!
5 of the top calorie burning spices along with their other benefits.
• Cumin boosts your immune system.
• Cayenne pepper and Tabasco sauce help your body burn more fat.
• Ginger helps relieve nausea and vomiting the symptoms caused by motion sickness.
• Cinnamon boosts circulation so you will work out better.
• Turmeric is useful in preventing the growth of some cancers, supports liver health, helps prevent bad cholesterol.
So if you prefer eating bland food, you can take supplements instead of adding it directly to your meals; although, you won’t get the same health benefits. Personally I believe spices are an acquired taste so you start by adding a little amount and increasing gradually.
