It is important to burn the chilies first so the effect doesn’t come about immediately on their face. But do not burn them completely because too much heat will affect their eyes. Do it slowly; once burnt, let cool down before using a hot water bottle to clean off the burn. If you prefer to burn more chilies, put them in a pan, turn on low heat and burn till the whole pan is covered with flames, when it burns, add some water and cover with a lid on the stove.

You can eat the same amount of dinner without worrying about weight gain. However, you always need extra calories from different sources, and as we mentioned earlier if you were going out you need to eat some extra calories. For example, you will never be satisfied if you eat just 4 pieces of rice or one bowlful of vegetables every day and you never like to consume those extra calories in the form of fats as well. In such cases, the meat is the only meal that satisfies all your hunger requirements. So, with a healthy diet, you will have a healthy appetite and this will lead to weight loss. In case you don’t consume any fats or calories in your diet plan then you will end up getting fat and will become obese and no one wants that.
