sometimes i crave for chili hot foods. but whenever i have some i observe that i eat less for i drink too much water that makes me feel full already. some people say that they eat more when they eat something with chili for the chili serves as the one who makes them crave to eat more. so how about you.... does eating something with chili makes you eat more or less? happy chewing

i always find myself eating more when i eat something really hot. but i only eat food with chili when i want to. just like you sometimes i want to eat something with a little kick. and when i eat something chili i make sure that i love that food. there are a lot of recipes that require chili but i dont like to eat much of those. there area few recipes that i like to eat chili hot. so when i have that i tend to eat more.

if it is just a little chili then i think we are going to eat more.... but if it is too much already the chili covers the real taste of the food. it is no longer delish. i would rather have a cold drink than to eat more. thanks for the response

hi max, does this mean that chilli helps you to eat just a little? so it is a good way to eat small servings. i think that is a good way for a person to eat much is to put chili in everything he eats. but what happen when that person gets used to hot foods and start eating a lot.... lol that would be a different discussion already. thanks for the response

I tend to eat more when i'm eating chili hot food. I eat more but i eat pretty fast too. I do take sips of water in between just to cool down a bit. Water won't make me full when i only take sips. I only drink large volume of water after i'm done with the food. There's a trick that eating bread with take the spicy feel on your tongue. I tried it and it worked.

thanks for that, this one i will try. but i only eat bread with pasta. if it is a beef recipe or pork or chicken we eat it mostly with rice. but i guess i still can have a small piece of bread after eating rice with a chili hot recipe. thanks for the response and have a great weekend ahead.

eating with chili food makes me crave for more, but since it's hot in the mouth, just like you've said, it also makes me drink a lot. But it doesn't make me eat less, it actually makes me eat a lot.

I hate spicy foods especially those with chili. I don't really like eating spicy foods because it makes me sweat and I can't tolerate the taste. I know a lot of people who loves eating spicy foods especially my great grandfather who even pick fresh chili in our backyard before he comes to our table to eat lunch. He even mixes chili with vinegar. According to him and to others who loves spicy foods it makes them eat more because when the food is hot and spicy tendency is you will never allow your mouth to be empty because you can taste the spice if your mouth is empty so you will eat more. I don't know if their taste buds are already immune but for me even a just a bit of spice I don't like to continue eating. I tend to drink a lot of water when I taste spicy foods so I get full fast. I will just look for another food than to eat a spicy one.

i think their taste buds are already immune yori. that is why for them it is just like a natural thing. and because they are used to it they cant eat without the chili. yes i agree that most of us ends up drinking more than eating more. we get full because of water and not with food. thanks for the response

It depends on whether the dish is delicious or not, rather than it's spicy or not. If it tastes well and even if it's spicy, I will still enjoy eating more. I enjoy eating delicious dishes:) I love China

of course we all enjoy eating when the dish is delicious. and yes i agree with you that is the food taste good even if it is chili hot then we tend to eat more. it all depends on the food we are eating. a good and delicious food sometimes does not need chili for it might just destroy the taste. thanks for the response.

I tend to eat more when I put chili in my food. I actually mix chili directly with rice because it gives it more flavor. I don't drink much while I'm eating though I drink a lot of water before and after :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

wow you mix chili with your rice. i have an uncle who can not eat lunch or dinner without chili hot sauce or siling labuyo with patis. if he has fried fish he will have vinegar and siling labuyo. he puts also sometimes chili garlic sauce with his rice. your response reminds me of him. thanks for the response

When the food is chilly hot and it is having good taste.Then i eat it more and more.I know after that just having a glass of water will neutralize the chilly flavor.There are times i eat snacks very hot and there is no water then i just keep the hot flavor in my mouth.

if it is a little i too would like that... but too much does not taste good anymore. you can no longer taste the food for all you taste was the chilli hot taste of it. a little hot can give the food a kick but too much is not food anymore. lol. thanks for the response

If i find food really too hot which i cant bear any more, i not only drink many glasses of water, i even try to leave that food, i get tears in my eyes even if food has a bit of chili hot, it must be tasty and not that hot even, i cant bear if the food has in it more than one chili infact, or more than jst a pinch of red chili powder or so. i cant eat hot foods at all, and if i eat even i tend to get headache very quickly which doesnt last until i take one tablet again. hence, i mostly try to avoid such foods.

thanks for the response gaya, yes i think you must avoid to eat food that will make your head ache. food should make us happy not to make us not feel good. i sometimes eat chili hot food just for craving but i dont eat a lot of chili foods. some recipe with too much chili does not taste good anymore.

If I am very hungry, I will eat more. But once I start drinking, I will eat less. It just all depends on how I feel as far as me being hungry is concerned.

oh yes.... there is no chili food when a person is hungry you only suddenly realize that it is chili hot when you are half full already. lol. that happened to a friend of mine. when he was half full then he realize that it was chili hot and he was even shocked when one said he was eating a goat... it was his first time to eat goat. thanks for the response

I don't like chili hot food. I prefer a very mild chili taste. If the food is chili hot I better not have it. I just can't appreciate the taste of the food when chili hot as it overwhelms my mouth and cannot taste the food itself anymore.

I never liked the piping hot food.The eat comes between my hunger and eating.I prefer warm food and I take a lot of cold food like ice creams and salads.
