Be Happy : Friday’s Health & Fitness Fact

10 May

Treat yourself to that Friday night takeaway!

But stick to the tomato-based dishes …

Miracle foods do NOT exist, however some foods can help to increase your metabolism, and get your body burning more calories, even while you’re resting.

Spices such as cinnamon, mustard, ginger and cayenne have thermogenic properties, helping elevate your metabolism by 20% for two hours after eating.

A mere half-teaspoon, or a dash of Tabasco sauce added to your meal is enough to give you the full thermogenic effect!

And for a further calorie-burning boost …

Wash the spicy serving down with an ice-cold glass of water, and you’ll burn even more calories, as your body uses energy to warm the water up!
