5 Of The Best Natural Appetite Suppressants

By John Turner

One of the hardest thing when you are trying to lose weight
is controlling your appetite. You can control your hunger
without turning to pills or chemicals that may harm your
body. When it comes to suppressants, you have to decide what
works best for you, either taking supplements or just the
natural ways. But supplements can be expensive.

Mother nature has provided a number of natural appetite
suppressants namely water, broth, green leafy vegetables,
pickles, and apples. So with these, you do not have to take
any supplements or pills to control your hunger. You should
always keep these foods within reach because you never know
when hunger bug will strike.

Simple drinking water. Water is an amazing substance. Your
body is 55 to 60 percent water, so this is a substance that
you constantly need to renew. But, water has other effects
as well. If you get hungry and it is not meal time, you will
often find that drinking an 8 ounce glass of water takes
away hunger. Wait 10 minutes after drinking the water before
eating anything. Most of the time, you will find that you do
not need to eat.

It is unfortunate that some people do not like drinking
water because it does so many great things for your body. If
so, organic vegetable broth is a food that could fill you
up. The body treats water as a liquid, but it treats broth
as a food. This means that broth satisfies your body's need
for food. Try chicken broth and you will only take in 20

Green leafy vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are the third
of our natural appetite suppressants. They have so few
calories that you do not even have to count them! In fact,
many of these can even be considered negative calorie foods
because it takes more energy for the body to digest the
vegetables than it is calories. If you are going to use
salad dressing, find a very low calorie dressing and use it
sparingly. You should not use more than 100 calories of
dressing on a big bowl of salad greens.

Pickles are not just for pregnant women anymore. It is
possible to eat an entire jar of these natural pickles and
consume only about 50 calories. You want to look for the
natural organic pickles found in health food stores or in
the health food section of your favorite grocer. And you can
eat an entire jar of pickles without feeling any guilt!

Apples. Apples are great natural appetite suppressants.
Apples may be the highest calorie food on this list, but
they are packed with fiber. An apple will fill you up for a
long time. They are also sweet, so when you crave for a
cookie, grab an apple instead.
