Permanent weight loss and great health can be found in the produce section of any grocery store. Not just a source to spice up salsa, chili peppers can curb the appetite, reduce unhealthy cravings, increase metabolism, reduce hypertension and even enhance sexual performance. In this bold new book, author Heidi Allison shares with readers the diet she developed that helped her effortlessly lose 90 pounds while eating tasty foods in satisfying portions.
Allison provides solutions to the drawbacks of conventional diets by addressing a variety of health benefits related to chilies. She emphasizes the beneficial effects of capsaicin, an active chemical found in chili peppers. This chemical activates the same neuronal pathways as fat, sending the signal to the brain that you are full. Capsaicin also triggers the release of endorphins and serotonin, which makes the individual feel better both physically and emotionally.
Spectacular Southwestern-themed color photographs educate readers on the many varieties of chili peppers. Allison provides readers with "hot hints" on how to incorporate chilies into their diets-even if they dislike spicy foods. Also included are: a complete list of chilies and their associated heat levels, flavors and culinary uses; a two-week menu plan; 150 easy-to-follow recipes; and a workbook to track eating patterns, food triggers and responses to stress.
