The Best Vegetables for Weight Loss


You may have heard that spicy hot peppers can help you scorch  calories, but did you know that mild peppers can have the same effect? 

Thanks to a metabolism-boosting compound, dihydrocapsiate, and their  high vitamin-C content, sweet red and green peppers can help you lose  weight.

A cup of these bell-shaped veggies serves up to three times the  day’s recommended vitamin C—a nutrient that counteracts stress hormones  which trigger fat storage around the midsection. Dip slices of bell  peppers into hummus for a light afternoon snack, add the veggie to  omelets and salads, or throw some chicken in a corn tortilla with salsa  and slices of avocado, red pepper and onion for a Tex-Mex-inspired  fat-fighting dinner.
