Will cayenne pepper help me lose weight?

Will cayenne pepper help me lose weight?

Unlikely to happen: Eating foods that contain cayenne pepper can help with weight loss only if a person doesn't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, eating spicy food might lower a person's appetite, so he doesn't eat as much at that meal. However, drinking a root beer float to wash down the spiciness will give a person lots of sugar & fat calories, thus increasing his calories & weight.

Does cayanne pepper and cinammon help you lose weight?

Does cayanne pepper and cinammon help you lose weight?

Pepper & cinnamon: Pepper is considered a heating spice and therefore may speed up metabolism, but in such a small way that it is of no practical value in weight loss. Cinnamon is helpful in balancing glucose and may have a small effect on mood. The safest and most helpful thing to do is see your doctor and then a nutritionist. Please ask them about the low carb higher protein food plan. Peace and good health.

What dosages do you take of cayenne pepper capsules to lose weight?

What dosages do you take of cayenne pepper capsules to lose weight?

Depends: There is no amount of cayenne pepper that will make one lose weight if the basics are not first addressed... eating right (cutting out added sugar, avoiding soybean oil, minimizing refined and processed foods), enough exercise, quality sleep, etc. Weight loss is a complex issue, and there is no one magic bullet for it.

Sounds good!: Sounds like a healthy meal. Just remember to limit portion sizes, because too much of even a healthy dish is too much.

OK but...: This is ok but if you really want to lose weight you might avoid the bread as less carbs will help; some feel gluten causes obesity so rice or quinoa might be better. I strongly advise organic chicken - see http://bit. Ly/19xax7e for the reasons. My favorite diet for weight loss and overall health is dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian diet- see http://bit. Ly/1dhw9ht don't forget to exercise. Good luck!

Cycle change: Sometimes when you have a dietary or hormonal change you can have a change in the way your cycle appears. If this continues to happen and you've made sure that you're not pregnant or have any kind of sexually transmitted disease then you should be further evaluated.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor as your symptoms suggest nutritional deficiency. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Digestion: Seeing undigested or partially digested vegetables in your stool can be completely normal. I would not worry about it unless you are having other symptoms along with it. Good luck.

I got sprayed with maximum strength pepper spray on my leg, . It burned badly. I wiped it with soap but it's red. Is this ok? Could this be toxic?

I got sprayed with maximum strength pepper spray on my leg, . It burned badly. I wiped it with soap but it's red. Is this ok? Could this be toxic?

Ouch must have hurt!: As long as there is no blistering or breaks in the skin you should be ok. The redness is like a sunburn and if its painful taking Ibuprofen and using aloe or other skin products that contain vitamin e can help. If there is blistering then without knowing how much area is involved I would advise seeing a doctor. Other than the local injury there should be no toxicity from this exposure.

Those foods coming: Through into the stool may appear as blood. It would be best to get a sample and have it tested for blood to be sure. His doctor should be able to help you with that.

Can red pepper take a few days to fully get out of your colon? I saw 1-3 small red spots in my stool for 2 days now had red peppers in a dinner Friday

Can red pepper take a few days to fully get out of your colon? I saw 1-3 small red spots in my stool for 2 days now had red peppers in a dinner Friday

Yes: The average time it takes for food to transit through our GI tract is about 50 hours, but can vary from a few hours to a few days. Red pepper may not fully be digested (esp. If it is dried flakes) and thus might show up in the stool. If this was bleeding, bright red blood usually comes from the rectal area and would not look like flakes. Blood from further up the GI tract is usually very dark.

BRBPR due to...: This may just be hemorrhoids from straining but bleeding from rectum (brbpr) may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.) or a bleeding source further upstream. Depending on your age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaids, anticoagulants can cause bleeding), see your doctor.
