But some supplements may also assist along the weight loss journey, the question is which are best?According to one study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, fibre had a positive impact on people who were trying to lose weight.Participants were asked to follow a diet containing at least 30 grams of fibre each day.“In addition to weight control, higher fibre diets can also help to prevent type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease,” said Dr Frank Hu, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.One way of getting more fibre is through supplements, which are thought to aid appetite control by slowing down the emptying of the stomach and reducing appetite.Decreased appetite and calorie intake may support weight loss.Soluble fibre is a type of fibre that blends with water in the gut, forming a gel-like substance.To further promote belly fat loss, combine your soluble fibre intake with other lifestyle changes, such as making healthier food choices and exercising more, recommends experts.Capsaicin is a compound in hot peppers that brings the heat when consumed.
