Default Re: Research Question of the Week: A Comprehensive Discussion on Diet Induced Thermogenesis

I think this explains why I typically get hot, and even sweat during/after a meal. I can feel my body eating up as I'm eating and sometimes by the end of the meal and for quite a while after I'm sweating.

This is especially true when I eat very spicy foods. I know spicy foods (cayenne for instance) increase endorphins and improves circulation in the extremities. I account this to the increased heat, BUT does this also mean DIT is higher?


I guess to sum it up, does eating spicy foods also increase DIT?
