12 ways to curb cravings without natural appetite suppressants like Proactol or Hoodia

  1. Eat more fiber... Fiber keeps you fuller longer and kills all your sugar cravings. Get fiber by eating fruits (especially apples) & vegetables, whole grains, nuts (almonds are the best) and seeds.

    Eating Fiber will help you lose weight faster because it fills up your stomach quicker - for example...

    You wouldn't be able to eat 500 calories worth of carrots (or other foods high in fiber) because you'll probably be full by the time you've eaten 200-300 calories worth of carrots so...

    Fiber makes you fell full so you eat less and this means you'll lose a lot more weight.
  2. Eat more lean proteins - Researches are beginning to realize that the reason high protein diets like the Atkins work is because these diets reduce your appetite decreasing your food cravings making you eat less and lose more weight.

    Lean proteins are one of the best foods to eat to get rid of sugar cravings since most sugar cravings come from not eating enough protein.
  3. Drink whey protein - Whey protein helps you release appetite suppressing hormones that curb your cravings.

    In a recent study... people drank either whey or casein and 90 minutes later they were allowed to eat freely at a buffet table. The people that drank whey protein ate significantly less calories.
  4. Drink more WATER - Water makes you feel full by tricking your body into thinking it's satisfied.
  5. Eat some fiber & protein and drink some water at ever meal to regulate your blood sugar because... when your blood sugar is out of whack - You'll crave for more food which means you'll eat a lot more and gain more weight.

    For example... If you eat some almonds & some fruit for fiber and then eat a lean meat like tuna or baked chicken for protein and if you wash all that down with 12 ounces of water... You'll won't have any food cravings for at least 4-6 hours.
  6. Eat a small meal every 2-3 hours. Doing this also regulates your blood sugar by giving you a constant supply of energy which really reduces your cravings and kills your big appetite and eating 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day makes you burn fat faster
  7. Don't skip breakfast - Skipping breakfast makes your already low morning blood sugar drop even more and this will cause you to have massive food cravings for the rest of the day.
  8. Have an egg for breakfast - Studies found that an egg for breakfast helped overweight people feel more full over 24 hours than a bagel-based breakfast of equal calories and the people who ate the egg breakfast ate 330 calories less during the day.
  9. Don't get stressed out - relax more. When you get stressed out you usually overeat because your body releases a hormone called Cortisol that makes you hungry.

    If you have a hard time coping with stress - then a weight loss pill like Cortislim can help block Cortisol
  10. Avoid refined carbs (mainly sugar) - Refined carbs include heavily processed or high sugar foods like fluffy white breads/bread snacks, regular sodas, most breakfast cereal, sweets, candy, cookies and cakes.

    Refined carbs cause your blood sugar levels to rise very fast and then crash very quickly making you crave for more sugar (refined carbs).

    Doing numbers 1-4 & especially #5 will help reduce your cravings for refined carbs or sugar.
  11. Limit your salt intake - Salt also makes your cravings worse and too much salt also causes you to gain unwanted water weight - See how to lose 5 pounds of unwanted water weight for more info
  12. Wait out your cravings - Most cravings pass within 20 minutes because they're often all in your head so you can survive these "fake cravings" by chewing on a some sugarless gum.
