Each one of the 30 billion fats cells found in the average human body can expand up to 1,000 times of its original size. Once fat cells grow too big, they will begin to split and form new cells. It isn't possible to get rid of fat cells but it is possible to shrink them and kill fat within the body.

Chilli Peppers

Chilli peppers contain a natural ingredient called capsaicin, a substance that boosts the body's calorie-burning activity and helps stabilise blood sugar levels. Stable blood sugar decreases fat storage. Chilli peppers add spice and flavour to foods, and every part of the pepper (including the seeds) is edible.
