No: Pepper slightly increases your metabolism but you'd have to eat a whole lot to have any noticeable weight loss. It is far better than using salt though. The key is portion control and proper dietary choices though. Pepper is just a condiment.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
