10 Natural Appetite Suppressants To Keep Hunger At Bay
When trying to lose weight, hunger pangs can stand in your way of success. Eating the right amount of food is important to reach your weight loss goals.
The focus should be on reducing your daily calorie intake by sticking to a well-balanced meal rich in nutrients, fiber, healthy fats and protein. You should eat enough, but not overeat – and if you tend to overeat a lot, we recommend taking appetite suppressants that are natural and don't do your body harm.
Here are 10 natural appetite suppressing snacks that stop you from reaching for a packet of crisps.
Almonds: Rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, and magnesium, almonds increase feelings of fullness and help you with weight management.
Avocados: Full of fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, avocados suppress appetite when eaten in moderation.
Apples: No matter what type of apple you eat, apples in general are known to help suppress hunger for a number of reasons. They are filled with soluble fiber and pectin, which helps you feel full. Moreover, apples require lots of chewing time, which helps your body more time to realize that you're no longer hungry.
Sweet Potatoes: They contain a special type of starch that resists digestive enzymes, making them stay in your stomach longer and therefore keeping you full.
Vegetable Soup: A hot, broth-based vegetable soup can not only fill you up but can also help in curbing hunger with minimal calories.
Tofu: It is high in an isoflavone called genistein, which has been shown to suppress appetite and lower food intake.
Salmon: High in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon helps your body increase the amount of the hormone leptin, which is known for suppressing hunger.
Flax Seeds: With a nutritional mix of soluble fiber and essential fatty acids, flax seeds help you to stay satiated and fueled. You can add them to your yogurt, smoothie, or salad.
Water: If you are craving for food and you know that your body has everything it needs, then drink water instead. Water is a zero calorie drink which makes it the best appetite suppressing agent when you are on a slimming treatment.
Oatmeal: A bowl of oatmeal can help you stay full for longer, thanks to its high fiber content. It can even help increase the levels of your appetite-regulating hormone, cholecystokinin.
Speed up the effectiveness of your slimming treatments by snacking on these healthy foods.
