Tips to Control Appetite

The appetite can be controlled without taking drugs that alter brain chemistry.
Controlling appetite naturally is the best, because using drugs often give you some side effect as a bonus. Try to follow this tips to help control your appetite in natural way.

Your meals often don't provide you with the satisfied full feeling. More food should avoid and the high fiber vegetables become important in this case to give you the full feeling. Add more water-dense fruits or vegetables such as apples, and watermelons at the beginning of a meal, perhaps even allowing a bit of time for digestion, can help a person feel more full while consuming fewer calories.

Human body produces both hormones and brain chemicals that make you feel hungry or tell you when you've had enough to eat. The hormone leptin regulates your metabolism. Low levels of leptin will make you feel hungry. Grehlin, a hormone found primarily in the stomach, stimulates the appetite. If these appetite regulating hormones are out of balance you will tend to over eat and gain weight. Studies show that sleep deprivation alters hormones and increases appetite. Getting enough sleep and sticking to a regular sleep pattern can help to keep these hormones in balance.

Another good way to control your appetite is by playing mind games. Some studies show that the color blue blue is an appetite suppressant. Try surrounding yourself with blue when you eat. You may want to paint your dining room blue or use the blue plate. But avoid to make the food itself blue with food coloring because it is often contain toxic.

Drink an adequate amount of water. Researchers in Berlin, Germany, found that their subjects had a 30 percent increase in metabolism after drinking approximately 17 ounces of water. The increases occurred within 10 minutes of drinking the water and the researchers estimate that up to 40 percent of the increase in calorie burning is from the body’s attempt to heat the water. A person who consumes an additional 1.5 liters a day for a year could burn an additional 17,400 calories, which translates to a five-pound weight loss.
