Spice Up Your Diet

March 12, 2008

Who says “diet” food has to taste like cardboard? When you’re looking for flavor without the fat, toss some spices into your dish. They will add only a few calories and nearly zero fat—and with the bold taste you’ll need less food to feel satisfied. Plus, a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that when women added 2 teaspoons of dried red pepper to their food, they consumed fewer calories and fat at their next meal too.
