If you want a “Hot body” add some peppers in your life! Hot peppers contain a chemical compound called capsaicin and this is actually what gives them the so-called “kick”.

For most people this is a surprising fact, but watermelon is made up of 92% water and foods that contain high amounts of water can make you feel full even though you eat less. Watermelon is also a great source of antioxidants, vitamins A and C.
Berries also contain high amounts of water and fiber, which can help you get full fast. The other benefit is that they’re very sweet. Instead of eating sugary baked goods it’s a better choice for you to munch on a few berries instead. They’ll suppress your appetite and are also good for your body because they’re loaded with antioxidants.

Nuts are a great snack to binge on. They can usually curb your appetite and cause you to eat less for your meal. They contain high amounts of protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. Studies have suggested that nuts can promote weight loss and improve your “good cholesterol” if eaten in moderation. Make sure to eat nuts that still have the shells on them because this will prevent you from overeating them.
