7 Natural Appetite Suppressants For Healthy Weight Loss
Losing weight should be a healthy and liberating process, not a lousy starvation diet.
The problem is obvious though, isn’t it?
When losing weight, hunger is always the main issue people face.
While there is no magic bullet to dieting, if there ever was one, this would be it.
The following are scientific strategies that anyone can implement to naturally suppress the appetite and promote weight loss in a healthy and natural way.

7 Natural Appetite Suppressants for Healthy Weight Loss
1. Eat protein at every meal.
Every meal should contain a lean source of protein.
Another great strategy is to drink a protein shake before going out to dinner with friends. This will greatly reduce appetite and cravings.
2. Drink decaf.
Coffee already has some incredible health benefits, such as its antioxidants and nutrients.
So next time the craving hits, reach for a little decaf. Try to go for organic coffee as well when possible.
Just make sure not to buy those flavored milkshakes Starbucks is serving. Frappuccinos and mixed coffee drinks are filled with too much sugar for a healthy diet.
3. Sip some peppermint tea.
Just the scent of peppermint tea has been shown to greatly reduce cravings, and people who drink it generally consume 1,800 calories less than normal (study).
Reach for this instead during the day when hunger starts to set in. Also, try to go for organic tea when possible.
Peppermint tea also helps with headaches, bloating, and colds or the flu, so if you’re feeling pain, grab a warm cup (study).
4. Add more of these foods to your life.
These foods have been ranked highly satiating based on their scientific fullness factor and will leave you full without overloading on calories.
Eat more of these foods DAILY: Watermelon, Grapefruit, Oranges, Sirloin Steak, Popcorn, Fish (broiled), Chicken Breast, Oatmeal, Apples, Whole Potatoes
5. Add Garcinia Cambogia into your diet.
Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit found in Asia, and if you find yourself eating whenever you feel emotional or bored, we have good news. I don’t normally condone weight loss pills, but this one is an exception.
So not only will you burn more fat, but you’ll spend less time thinking and craving food.
We all have stress in our lives, and it’s great news that with GC can help you in those times when you’re feeling weak and your willpower is low!
The best brand, if you want to give it a try, is Nature Bound.
5. Avoid these foods.
The flip side: The less satiating the food, the more likely hunger cravings will continue after eating.
The fullness factor on these foods will leave the body hungry and in desperate search of more calories.
Avoid: Potato chips, Butter, Dried Fruit, White Bread, White Rice, Peanuts, Snickers, Spaghetti, Honey, Ice Cream, Pizza
6. Up your spice game.
Most people don’t have spicy tongues, but here’s a good reason to.
So throw a little Sriracha or spice on any food, and it will naturally help suppress the appetite.
7. Drink Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar works as a natural appetite suppressor and also simultaneously helps detox the body. It can be a very effective weight loss tool when used properly.
It is made by crushing apples, squeezing out their juices, and fermenting the sugars into alcohol, which is then fermented into vinegar. Make sure you find the kind with the “mother” in it, which contains the healthy proteins and enzymes. Only the raw, unfiltered brands provide the maximum health benefits.
Most local grocery stores now carry it, but you can also get a free bottle from Thrive Market.
