Introduction and background

We come across many overweight individuals who snivel about not being able to follow any diet plan or reduce any considerable amount of weight. Out of these people, there are great number of those who have had tried medications to reduce their weight but medications, rather than effectively reducing their weight, tend to affect them adversely in the form of health complications and harmful side-effects. All these things convince people that weight reduction is an uphill task. On the contrary, we are going to enlighten our readers about how effectively and above all, naturally, they can reduce their weight simply by using natural appetite suppressants.

What is appetite suppression?

Appetite suppression refers to the process of reducing weight by consuming such dietary supplements or/and drugs which reduce your appetite and food consumption. This is one of the effective ways of reducing weight because with reduced appetite, your calorie-intake is greatly reduced and as a result of which, you decrease your weight easily without going through strenuous exercises or dangerous weight reduction surgeries.


Natural appetite suppressants that help

When it comes to natural appetite suppressants, you achieve the task just by eating vegetables and fruits which we will be discussing later. However, water is also one of the effective appetite suppressants. Let’s start with the role of water below:
Water: Water is the foremost appetite suppressant in our list because it is totally natural, healthy and, most importantly, a calorie-free appetite suppressant. It is quite rational and obvious that by drinking on more water, you will feel less hungry because your stomach would have already been filled by the water. On top of that, you can always suppress your appetite with adequate and proper intake of water. Following tips are going to help you suppress your appetite with water:
• When you wake up in the morning, drink two to three glasses of water.
• Drink two glasses half an hour earlier to the dinner.
• Drink cold water because your body warms it and burns calories meanwhile.
Dietary fiber: Dietary fiber is known to suppress your appetite by giving you a feeling of fulfilment without extra calories. For example, if you eat oatmeal, you will have the feeling of fulfilment even after a single bowl while it won’t even increase your calorie intake as it is a low-calorie food. The importance of fiber is vital for appetite suppression because of the following reasons:
• Fiber induces the release of appetite-suppressing hormones in the body such as cholecystokinin.
• Fiber results in more calories being excreted in the feces. This reduces the calories that your body gets and results in weight loss.
• Fiber provides bulk in your intestines and you don’t feel hungry any more. This results in reduced appetite and feeling of fulfillment without eating much.
• Soluble fiber brings affects the release of glucose in the body in such as way that it slows it down. This way, you don’t feel hungry all the time.
Having discussed the effectiveness of dietary fiber in weight loss, we must tell you which food items contain dietary fiber.

There are two kinds of fiber; soluble and insoluble fiber. Vegetables especially peel and skin, fruit pulp, whole grain bread, bran and buckwheat etc. come under the category of diet rich in insoluble fiber. On the other hand, soluble fiber is present in fruits (such as apples), some vegetables, oatmeal, nuts (almonds and sunflower seeds etc.) and legumes.


What are other natural appetite suppressant foods and herbs?

There are other natural appetite suppressant foods as well which can help you reduce your weight. These natural appetite suppressants are briefly discussed below:

Green tea: Green tea is not only good appetite suppressant but also helps burning your body fat. However, it is not recommended for those who are suffering from insomnia and also, not recommended for breast-feeding and pregnant mothers.

Guarana: Guarana is an appetite suppressant shrub which affects how fast the body perceives itself to be full.
