You may know it but I read that spices(like mustard,pepper,paprika etc.) have a good thermogenic effect in your body.The truth is that I notice a raise in my body's temperature when I eat something spiced up.A simple way to turn your heat up!..

Thats right they do. Eating some hot sauce with meals or something to that affect helps to slightly increase your metabolic rate. :cool:

Are spices bad for you in any way? i always wondered this. Not salt, the others, like the herbs...

I heard that curry is especially good at raising your metabolism because it contains an igredient called Cardamom. this is just what i've read.

I spice all my food when dieting even eggs

I use hot chilli powder and cayenne pepper which is in some thermogenic formulas

Spices are good for you, they help clear out toxins in your body

garlic isnt a spice but is a powerful anti-oxidant and is good for purifying your blood

Which totally justifies my cayenne pepper on EVERYTHING. Steak, chicken, potatoes, all with that beautiful red dust. That and Tabasco sauce...hells yeah..
