Foods That Control Calories

New research shows that eating more of certain foods can control calories. The foods, which include cayenne pepper and puréed vegetables, are natural appetite suppressants. 
For the research, published in the journal Physiology & Behavior, scientists at Purdue studied the effect of just half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper on a group of 25 diners.
The effect was greater among diners who didn’t regularly consume spicy meals. Among that group, adding red pepper to the soup was associated with eating an average of 60 fewer calories at the next meal compared with when they ate plain soup. For both groups who ate red pepper in food, the spice also appeared to increase the metabolism and cause the body to burn an extra 10 calories on its own. Dieters can also get great results by adding pureed veggies to their dishes, according to a February report in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Adding the puree bulked up dishes and resulted in fewer calories.
