A look at Appetite Suppressants

Many of us would like to lose a little bit of weight and a few inches around the waist. Especially at this time of year after Christmas and with fresh New Year resolutions.

One of the best ways to lose weight is a simple yet revolutionary idea that has long been proven to be effective, it is to eat less.  By reducing your food take, you reduce your calorie intake and in turn you start to lose weight. Of course this is easier said than done, and many of us find resisting temptation all too tricky to say the least.

With obesity levels rising in recent years (the NHS website states that a survey carried out in 2012 found that 26% of adults were now considered obese) more and more people are turning to ‘magic’ diet pills that claim to help you burn your fat. Most seem to be ineffective and can be considered a waste of money. There is however an alternative, appetite suppressants. These supplements help you lose weight buy making you feel full, helping you to eat less and reducing your calorie intake. The appetite suppressants found on appetitesuppressant.org.uk are all made using natural ingredients, and work in a variety of ways to trick the brain into thinking that you have eaten.

For instance, one of the supplements made using Hoodia (a cactus like plant found in South Africa) has been used by ‘The San’ tribe for generations to suppress their appetite while out on long hunts. A BBC correspondent even went to South Africa to try out the plant for himself. He found that it worked, and calling it a ‘marvellous deception’.

The molecule within the Hoodia plant goes into the middle of the brain and makes nerve cells fire as if you were full, even though you haven’t eaten. Hoodia has been used for many years without any side effects being caused.

Other appetite supplements work to make you feel bloated by releasing a gel like substance into your stomach. It swells in your stomach which in turns makes you believe you are full.

Below are appetite suppressants that can found around your house.

Water – sometimes when you feel hungry it may not actually be because you are hungry, but because you are thirsty.  Next time you feel hungry try drinking a glass of water and waiting 10 minutes, if you can resist the temptation to eat during those 10 minutes you may find that drinking water has satisfied your hunger.

Chewing gum – the action of chewing gum combined with the release of its flavour can at times fool the brain into thinking that you have eaten.
