Having eggs for breakfast is a great way to start your day–especially if you are trying to lose weight. Because they are low in calories but rich in protein and nutrients, eggs are a diet-friendly option that can keep you on the right track. To make them even more weight loss friendly, try adding a spice to your eggs that can jumpstart your metabolism.

Specifically, adding a touch of cayenne pepper to your eggs can help give it more flavor and weight loss benefits.







Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper is a great spice for weight loss, making it the perfect addition to your favorite egg dish.


According to Healthline, "The capsaicin in cayenne peppers has metabolism-boosting properties."

This metabolism boost works by increasing the number of calories you burn throughout the day.


"[Capsaicin] helps increase the amount of heat your body produces, making you burn more calories per day. It does this through a process called diet-induced thermogenesis, which causes an increase in your metabolism," Healthline continues.

Additionally, cayenne pepper may help to reduce your appetite--making you feel full for longer.


Likewise, if you are trying to control how much you are eating, this is a great way to restrict unnecessary snacking.

Cayenne pepper has other health benefits as well, such as aiding in digestion, improving blood pressure, and alleviating pain.
