Diet Induced Thermogenic (or DIT) is the production of heat that happens after eating. This is a contributor to the resting metabolic rate and can account up to 10% of daily expenditures. And of proteins, carbs, and fats, proteins are known to have the greatest thermic effect. The energy contribution from DIT occurs with the ingestion, digestion, absorption, and then the transport of blood. Also, it is contributed by the increase activity of the nervous system. Thermic metabolism and stimulating the metabolic rate can be done by some food items, mostly widely known through caffeine (i.e. coffee) and capsaicin (i.e. hot peppers).
