There are several ways to suppress your appetite naturally. You do
not want to starve yourself as this will tell your body to hold on to
the fat already in your body.
Natural Appetite Suppressants
Pinolenic Acid is a nutrient that reduces your appetite naturally. It
also aids in the digestion of dietary fats helping weight loss. Pine
nuts contain pinolenic acid, a naturally occurring polyunsaturated fat
that actually stimulates two powerful hunger suppressing hormones.
Green Tea extract works by promoting thermogenesis, which increases
the metabolic rate, inhibiting fat digestion, and boosting your
energy. It also increases fat oxidation which helps the body use fat
as an energy source.
Coleus is an herb that promotes the breakdown of fat in the fat cells
and aids in weight loss. Coleus stimulates fat metabolism helping fat
loss when dieting.
Protein takes longer to digest and does not affect your blood sugar
in the way that carbohydrates do which suppresses the appetite by
making you feel fuller longer.
Guarana has a stimulant affect much like caffeine, it helps to boost
energy levels and suppress the appetite.
Foods That Suppress Your Appetite
Water is an easy way to suppress your appetite. If you drink an
8-ounce glass of water when you first start feeling hungry you should
notice that it curbs your appetite. If you just drink a full glass of
water and wait 10 minutes you may see that your appetite is either
completely gone or dramatically reduced.
Green vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, bokchoy, and other leafy
vegetables are very low in calories and they fill your stomach to make
you feel full, turning off the hunger signals in your brain.
Apples are a great appetite suppressing food because the bulky fiber
fills up your stomach and turns off your appetite control hormones
before you overeat.
