Appetite Suppressant Food

One of the things that I hear moms like myself complain about is weight gain. It seems hard if not impossible to include exercise in our busy schedule, so some moms resort to the easy way out of popping diet pills or perhaps going under the knife. But there are natural food that act as appetite suppressants so you don't have to go through drastic measure to lose weight. The next time you feel like your hunger doesn't go away or you can not stick to your diet, before nibbling something you shouldn't be nibbling on, try eating or taking any of the following appetite suppressant food:

1. Apples

Do you know that it takes 20 minutes for our brain to process whether or not we are full? Apples take longer to chew and when you don't cut them up into little pieces it takes even longer. So when you chew longer it gives the brain time to process that you are full. Needless to say that apples are also rich in fiber which means that you will feel full for a longer period of time, and they don't digest quickly.

2. Green Tea

Green tea in particular is another good appetite suppressant food that is also known for its ability to help burn fat. This explains the popularity among people who wish to lose weight. Green tea can however also stimulate the release of hormones that can control or limit food cravings.

3. Chocolate

Not all chocolates are good appetite suppressant food. There are some kinds of chocolates that should definitely be avoided. There are also some brands and types of chocolates that carry a lot of calories and are sugar rich which makes them major weight contributors. However, very small portions of dark chocolate may be good for you. The bittersweet taste of pure dark chocolate has been known to suppress many appetites.

4. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is an appetite suppressant too. This is why it should be in your breakfast menu more often. Oatmeal contains carbohydrates that slowly burn as it is used for energy, hence making you feel less like eating more. Oatmeal is also a fiber rich food that will make you feel fuller faster and last.

5. Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are another rich in fiber food. Flaxseeds are best consumed when raw. If you want more flavors with your flaxseeds, you can mix them with your early morning bowl of oatmeal which can serve as a double appetite suppressant food.

6. Water

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day can keep you hydrated. It also limits your appetite especially if you drink a glass before a meal.
