Become the Biggest Loser by Reducing your Appetite Naturally

by Maria on April 23, 2014

Appetite is both a psychological and physical phenomenon. Sometimes we eat when we’re bored, stressed, or just because it’s “time” to eat, even though we’re not really hungry.

This article will show you the link between nutrition and diet and how to decrease your appetite naturally, as opposed to the many potentially dangerous weight loss programs, fat burners and appetite suppressants.

What healthy weight loss experts recommend:

1. Regular weight loss exercise and drinking water curb cravings – a high metabolism keeps hunger at bay.

2. Curb hunger and improve satiety by adding bulk to your weight loss diet with fresh fruits and vegetables which are low-calorie, high-volume foods, rich in water and fiber.

3. Eat lean protein like lean meat, fish, poultry, tofu and eggs to feel full, reduce hunger and lose weight.  A recent study led by Dr. Batterham at the University of College London reports that the hormone peptide is responsible for making us feel full; this hormone is released when high protein diet foods are consumed, and may be one reason why the Atkins diet does work for some people.

Tofu is a diet food,rich in protein, and also low in fat – the best choice for a high-protein diet that isn’t high in saturated fat.

Have lean protein or low-fat dairy at all meals and snacks. Adding protein to your breakfast may be especially helpful.

4. Eat solid foods rather than drinking liquids.

5. Slow down and eliminate distractions while you’re eating – concentrate on your meal, and do not engage in multitasking. Also, to prolong your meal, chew slowly, put your fork down between bites, or simply take smaller forkfuls.

6. Use those easy strategies to work hunger-fighting diet foods in your healthy weight loss plan:

  • Add shredded or chopped vegetables to your dishes.
  • Eat fruits instead of drinking fruit juices.
  • Use a blender to whip air into fruit drinks, smoothies, or sauces.
  •  Choose whole-grain breads, cereals, and pasta.
  • Enjoy vegetable salads or broth-based soups before meals.
  • Top salads with lean meats, poultry, eggs, tofu, beans, nuts, or fish.
  • Add beans to stews, soups, egg dishes, and casseroles.
  • Suppress your appetite with fennel seed tea. However, too much of it can be toxic.
  • Sprinkle pine nuts on pasta, and other hearty dishes that you usually overeat on, and enjoy smaller portions – pine nuts release appetite-suppressing hormones into the body just 30 minutes after consumption.
  • Chewing on a few pieces of fresh ginger can boost your metabolism, and suppress the appetite.
  • 1 to 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar taken with water right before a meal helps to reduce appetite because of a fiber compound found in the vinegar called pectin which mixes with the water, and expands in the stomach which causes appetite to be decreased.

Hope you include the above appetite reducing tips in your diet plan for an effective, and healthy weight loss!
