Have you noticed that many diet pills and diets in generally use the grapefruit as part of their secret ingredient? Have you ever wondered why?

Yes, that morning coffee gives us that boast of energy that we need in the morning. But it can also help our bodies to secrete less insulin. Insulin sends sugar quicker into our cells. This sugar then turns into fat.
Tired of drinking plain old hot and cold coffee? You could try adding a few coffee grounds of the coffee into your muffin and cake batter.
Chili powder contains a natural appetite suppressant, capsaicin. This is what also gives the chili powder the hot taste.
Try adding a pinch of chili powder to your tomato juice or sprinkle onto your popcorn or corn on the cob.
Nut butters made from peanuts, cashew or almonds takes a while for the body to break down in your stomach. This means that they make you feel full longer. They also contain protein that can help give you energy.

Avocado is also filled with monounsaturated fat. This is the kind of fat our bodies can burn quick.
