  • Appetite control

    what should I look for an over the counter product if I want something that is going to provide me with the best appetite control? I know that controlling appetite doesn't mean you automatically eat fewer calories, that's up to an individual. However, I hate that every time I try to lose weight, I feel hungry all the time. I just want that feeling to go away. Anyone have any recommendations?

    I think we're all different. However, for me, I find that when a product contains caffeine I feel less hungry. I don't know if that will work for you but it's certainly helped me. That said, ingredients like hoodia, garcinia cambogia and african mango have never been helpful for me when it comes to appetite suppression. In case you were wondering about those.

      JennyR, caffeine helps me, too!

      JokerzWild, That's a tough one! Battling with hunger is never fun when you're trying to control your calorie intake To help control your appetite naturally here are a few suggestions:

      - Make sure your hydrated - drink water throughout the day so that the reason you're hungry isn't because you're thirsty.
      - Don't skip meals and try to eat at the same time every day to provide your body with a routine
      - Make sure you're filling up on fiber and protein and not only carbs
      - Eat a fruit instead of drinking juice
      - Avoid high-sugar drinks
      - Exercise regularly
      - Get proper sleep

      Hope some of those help!

        Those are great natural tips. They really do work. During the summer, that hydration tip is especially helpful. Sleep is the other big one for me. When you treat your body right and stay hydrated, you won't get mixed signals, such as feeling hungry when you don't need any more food to be healthy.

          Thanks. You know, I have to say I find it really surprising how staying hydrated can help with appetite control. I would never think that drinking water could actually stop you from feeling hungry. I mean, who could being dehydrated make you feel hungry? Shouldn't it make you feel thirsty?

            Thirst is weird. The signals get crossed in your brain and they really do make you feel hungry, too. I think evolution never really corrected it since we get a lot of our water from food, so regardless of what we sense, it's still going to get us hydrated again.
            I don't find that water always helps with hunger. But if I drink water all afternoon, I stay more alert, and am way less hungry. Usually I want to snack all afternoon. when I stay hydrated, that doesn't kick in until about an hour before dinner. That's a much easier hunger window for me to handle. Also, eating a lot of fiber helps me, in case you want an extra tip. fiber and water together is really powerful.

              It is very strange! I also find it weird how eating food can stop you from feeling sick when you've let yourself get so hungry that you don't feel well anymore. The body is a strange machine and when it's not well-oiled, it's signals go haywire!

                I get that too! I get so hungry I feel too sick to eat, but when I do, I feel better. The opposite is true, too. I eat so much I feel sick but if I have a green apple, I feel better. How can eating more when you've overeaten make you feel better?
