A Healthy Diet is the Most Powerful Appetite Suppressant

by Paul L. Rodgers

Anyone struggling to lose weight understands that appetite suppression is often a necessary part of the battle. You won't have good appetite control if you eat too little or eat poorly balanced meals. The most powerful appetite suppressant, however, is a healthy diet. You should address true hunger not by masking it with appetite suppressants but by satiating it with the most satisfying, least caloric food possible. Therefore, it seems that the best way to control your appetite is with a food that is high in bulk and low in calories.

Side-effects aside, numerous studies have documented that the benefits of conventional appetite suppressants are short-term and they do little to address the underlying problems associated with obesity or being overweight. For these reasons, doctors are generally hesitant to prescribe appetite suppressants for strong appetite control and tend to only do so if other measures have failed in appetite suppression and if excessive weight is causing serious health concerns.

Natural Appetite Suppressants

Natural appetite suppressants are a popular way to lose weight. Self control is the ultimate suppressant, but as most people struggle in that characteristic, what other simple natural appetite suppressants are worth a try. Whole foods are cheaper and you will reap the added nutritional benefits from them that you won't obtain from a supplement. Supplement your food intake with nutritional supplements.

Nutrients

There are some fruits and veggies which can act as appetite suppressant for your body such as apples, pine nuts, salad, and flaxseed. The ideal would be to snack only on fresh fruits or vegetables that are low-glycaemic, such as peaches or celery. Also, you can consider eating more green vegetables (like spinach) or iron-rich fruits. Wholesome foods like daily servings of fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean meat and fish should form the bulk of your diet. You can help your body cleanse by eliminating junk or processed food, eating more fresh vegetables, fruits and unprocessed whole grains and drinking plenty of fresh water.

Exercising Helps To Suppress Your Appetite

Health specialists everywhere say that the time that we spend in front of the TV can be better used for practices that can lengthen life instead of shortening it, like exercising. Aerobic exercise, like walking, swimming or cycling, has the additional advantage of increasing your metabolism for 4 to 8 hours after you discontinue exercising. Exercising not only helps you lose weight, by burning the excess fat, but also helps to suppress your appetite. A sound fitness plan that includes strength training along with good nutritional habits can play a major role in protecting you from a number of serious health issues.

Natural Herbal And Homeopathic Remedies

Many natural herbal and homeopathic remedies are available that stimulate the metabolism and work as natural appetite suppressants. If you haven't heard of Caralluma yet, you will. Caralluma is a cutting edge herb that is very new to the supplement market. Caralluma fimbriata is a succulent plant, in the cactus family, that has been used as a natural appetite suppressant in India for centuries.

As with the supplements made from the popular Hoodia Gordonni Cactus, the cactus famility of Caralluma Fimbriata has been used a portable food and suppress hunger and appetite, and enhance endurance throughout India. Caralluma extract appears to suppress appetite, and reduce waist circumference when compared to placebo over a 2 month period.
