Health Tips: What Is The Most Effective Appetite Suppressant?

Suppressing your appetite can help you be successful in any diet by eating less! Find out what the most effective suppressants for weight loss are by reading this article!

Everyone who has ever been on a diet knows that they usually fail because of hunger. To lose weight, a person must eat a limited number of calories a day. Once those calories are used up, the person isn't allowed to eat anymore food. But, if they're still hungry, which they usually are, they continue to eat more. The additional calories put a damper on losing weight. The end result is frustration and a feeling of hopelessness.

In order to address this problem, and control their hunger, dieters use appetite suppressants. These diet aids are available in two types: natural and manufactured. Natural aids include herbs and foods, while manufactured diet aids include Sibutramine, Satietrol, and Phentermine.

But, which ones are the most effective? Because people's bodies and eating habits are different, the answer depends on the individual and what works best for them.

One of the most common natural appetite suppressants is apples. Apples contain fiber that can help your stomach feel full. Apples are also said to contain a natural fat burner. Another natural hunger fighter is lettuce. A lettuce salad - sans high fat dressings, meat, and other calorie laden additions- can help to fill you up without adding calories to your diet.

And, of course, water has long been touted as a way to suppress your appetite. Being that it has zero calories, you can drink all of the water you want while you're dieting. It not only helps to fill your stomach, but it also helps to flush toxins out of your body. Diet experts recommend drinking eight, eight ounce glasses of water every day.

If you'd rather take a weight loss capsule to help feel full, you can try taking natural Hoodia. Hoodia is a plant that looks like a cactus; it comes from South Africa. Hoodia has long been used by the natives as an appetite suppressant during long trips. It is said to actually fool your stomach into thinking that it is full.

Just like natural apples, lettuce and water, Hoodia has no side effects, so it can be taken as directed without harming your body.

On the flip side of the coin are the manufactured appetite suppressants. Phentermine is one of the most popular weight loss pills you can take. It works by interrupting the signals between your stomach and your brain. Therefore, your stomach can't tell your brain that you need to eat more food.

You might not have heard of sibutramine, but this drug works by repressing certain hormones in your body. These hormones control the feeling of hunger. Thus, after you take sibutramine, your stomach will feel full whether you have eaten food recently or not.

And finally, there is a drug called Satietrol that can help you lose weight by suppressing your

appetite. It also fools your body by stimulating it to produce a hormone that curbs your hunger.

Satietrol also contains a significant amount of fiber. This fiber can also help your stomach to feel full without overeating.

These drugs are sold under different types of brand names. Before you purchase one to help you with your weight loss efforts, consult your healthcare professional first. And, be sure to read and follow the directions on the package.
