Foods that Supress your Appetite

Posted Jul 15 2009 12:00am

People are always looking for the easy way to weight loss. There's no magic pill that will give you a lean, healthy body. Diet pills are dangerous, and not effective. I think most of the dangers are known, so I will not get into them..what I WILL do is talk about a few foods that are healthy for you & when included in a balanced, nutritious diet, can help naturally suppress your appetite!

So what are some of these super foods that will help you in your journey to a healthy lean life? Read on!

  • Ginger Root: some benefits of ginger root include appetite suppression, aiding in digestion, alleviating high blood pressure, treating nausea or morning sickness in pregnant women and lowering LDL cholestrol
  • Broccoli: broccoli is high in fiber, which helps aid in digestion and helps you to feel fuller longer, warding off those unhealthy cravings later in the day!!
  • Tofu: tofu is rich in peptide YY (peptide tyrosine-tyrosine, or PYY), which is a hormone that decreases your appetite
  • Pinenuts: pinenuts suppress hunger and tell your brain “Thanks, but I am already full.” Additionally, it slows the emptying of your stomach, again helping you feel full. These benefits are due to a powerful hormone called cholecystokinin (or CCK.)
  • Fennel: Rich in phytoestrogens, Fennel is often used for irritable bowel, kidneys, spleen, liver, improving digestion & suppressing appetite.
  • Green Tea: green tea has been known to benefit in weight loss. It is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: which has been known to be effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
  • Chilis: some studies suggest the capsaicin found in the peppers should form part of a healthy, weight-reducing diet.
