    I couldn't find a similar thread on the forum, so I figured I'd ask since this has been puzzling me for the past few months. I really like eating very spicy food in large quantities. Because hot sauces are an essential element of almost every meal I eat, you can imagine it makes me defecate a whole lot more (sometimes 4-5 times a day). I've heard in the past that spicy food "speeds up metabolism", but wouldn't it be the case that so fast of a processing of the food by the digestive tract leads to inadequate "collection" of the nutrients i.e. are some nutrients left out in the feces as our body tries to desperately get rid of capsaicin?

    I doubt this is an issue it's not like it is a powerful stimulant
