Hot Food

Q: I read in a book "Hot food is to be avoided. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, also disapproved of it." I wanted to know does it mean hot as in when you touch it you feel it hot or the other hot as in spicy?

The hadith you refer to means food that is hot to the touch, not hot in spices and masalas and chillies, etc.

And Allah knows best
