Here’s the reason why you cannot seem to stop sweating while chowing down a plate of spicy chicken stir-fry. Chillies that are used to zing up the spice level of dishes contain a compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin’s thermogenic properties stimulate your body’s metabolism and that process leads to a whole lot of calorie burn- sweet! Order your food with a little extra spice for the additional calorie burn as you savour your flavourful meal.
