I've heard that eating spicy foods actually speeds up your metabolism (which causes you to burn more calories/lose more weight), but I'm not sure if that's actually true or not. There's nothing wrong with it that I know of or have heard of. You should be fine.

I also think spicy food helps to speed up our metabolism. Our place is known for spicy foods and we use lots of spices in our food.

Hi Rocketsky, I love spicy food, but don't know if it's good for health. But it keeps me warm during cold weather, especially curries.

I totally agree with you about red pepper. I too love sugar but I use to take 3 to 4 tps in my tea but have now cut down to 1 and I'm using organic sugar. I have a good recipe with red pepper flakes. Angel Hair Pasta olive oil minced garlic breadcrumbs red pepper flakes Cook the pasta, In a frying pan put about 2 tsps of olive oil, 2 tsps of minced garlic, red pepper flakes to your taste and about 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs stir. Add to the cooked pasta. I love it. Its fast and you can add a salad and garlic bread for a good meal. Enjoy!

I love eating spicy foods. I do believe in moderation its good for you. I truly believe it burns the fat and clears the sinuses. I just found a new recipe called Red Pepper Pasta 4 tsps of olive oil 2 tsps of minced garlic red pepper flakes ( to your desire) salt (to your desire) 1 cup of bread crumbs ( I only used less then 1/2 cup) 8oz of angel hair pasta Parmesean Cheese Saute garlic in oil, add red pepper flakes, salt and bread crumbs, mix well add to cooked and drained pasta and sprinkle with cheese. I just made it today and it was delicious!

I think eating spicy food in moderation is alright. If you eat too much it could possibly end up hurting your stomach. I think it also depends on how spicy you are talking about.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. For some people, it can cause hemorroids. But not for everyone.

I don't care for spicy foods. I'm actually allergic to hollow peppers, in fact, I'm allergic to almost all of the "new world" foods, corn, hollow peppers, tomatoes, potatos, tho I can eat the last 2 in moderation, but don't ya know, I live in Texas where Mexican food (corn, hollow peppers and tomatoes) is considered a popular food. Heck, my brother thinks Mexican food is the best food in the world - too bad - oh well, I don't see that much of him anyway...

It is not good to eat spicy food because it contains more fat and it influence on your mind set so using salt,spicy makes you bad so i request use less spice for your health.

I myself love spicy food. But everytime i eat spicy somebody always told me to stop because it cause hemorrhoid. They said it scientifically proven but i still eat it. They also said, its also aphrodisiac. It helps to give more urge.

I think it is good to eat spicy food because most of the spices are very good for health. I am not sure about it, but I would suggest to check to know more details. I am from Kerala and Kerala is known for spicy foods and we use lots of spices in our food and most of them are very tasty.
