Does drinking lemon water with cayenne pepper encourage weight loss from an average diet?

Does drinking lemon water with cayenne pepper encourage weight loss from an average diet?

Effects are minimal: Lemon water with cayenne pepper is very low in calories compared to sugar-sweetened drinks such as soda. So, if you're drinking it instead of calorie-rich drinks, it may contribute to weight loss. There is some evidence that cayenne pepper decreases appetite; however, the effects appear to be minimal. Additionally, cayenne pepper is palatable only in small amounts, limiting its benefits.

Yuck!!: Why would you consume a drink with high sugar content when you are trying to lose weight? You need a balanced diet with strict limits on portion size and carbohydrates. These fad diets never help for long and this one seems particularly absurd to me.

Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?

Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?

It's silly stuff: The 'hcg diet' is an 800-calorie severely restrictive diet and this is why you lose weight. The overpriced placebo that is tacked on will probably do nothing. Further, HCG does not turn ovarian cysts cancerous. Why not take the money and join a fitness club, make friends, and embark on a far happier and less fear-darkened life? Cheers.

I think I smelled to much cayenne pepper, now I'm feeling nauseas and I'll, what do you think I shold do?

I think I smelled to much cayenne pepper, now I'm feeling nauseas and I'll, what do you think I shold do?

Don't stress: Since this was over 23 hours ago I imagine any reaction has passed by now. Sorry no one answered sooner but there may not have been much to do except ride out the reaction. Smelling cayenne is not a serious problem, in fact cayenne has many health benefits. If you had the homeopathic remedy Nux vomica 30c taking a few pellets may have helped. See https://draxe.

Could cayenne pepper make acne worse?

Could cayenne pepper make acne worse?

Yes: It's actually promoted as a "pop" treatment on the internet. I suspect this is a prank. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment.

Add cayenne to diet: Much better to just add cayenne pepper to your cooking. Add some spice to your life! When you take it in capsule form you miss all of the zing. Better yet get a fresh habanéro at your local grocery and add some real zing (up to 750, 000 SHU) to your diet.
