The Dutch researchers added that the spices helped to make the consumer feel full quicker and so eat less. The spices also helped people to digest their food better. However the publishers of the journal added: Anyone thinking of fighting the flab with a diet of green tea and curry alone may be disappointed, so don't go cancelling the gym membership just yet.
