Fans of extreme spice: How long before my body adjusts to habanero peppers?
I've always been a casual fan of spicy food, but recent decided to up the ante a bit by experimenting with habanero peppers. My first few attempts at this in life were mostly unsuccessful, but recently my tongue seems to have adapted somewhat to the heat, and I'm able to enjoy the flavor and the heat at the same time. But while my tongue seems to accept it, not all of my body is in agreement. Specifically, those part towards the end of the line. You know, I'm trying to put this delicately, but none of us are unfamiliar with the after effects of a too spicy meal, right?
Normally I can conquer this problem with training (read: eating more), but my body doesn't seem to be adjusting to this level of spicy. Do I have to resign myself to this fiery torture to enjoy delicious foods, or will my body eventually stop exacting its revenge on me?
