Appetite Suppressant Tricks

"My biggest mistake, the avocado. Made the pit too big!"
George Burns as God in the movie "Oh God"
Women'sHealthMag.com offers these ideas for eating less:
  1. Eat Protein at Breakfast: at least 1 ounce of meat, egg or yogurt will keep you filling full, longer
  2. Eat Potatoes: potatoes contain a starch that is difficult for the body to break down so it will be in your digestive system longer. Try a baked potato (100 calorie) or potato salad (without the mayo). Don't use french fries or potato chips since the oil spikes the calorie count on these.
  3. Not all fat is bad: oleic acid, which is found in the unsaturated fat of olives, nuts, peanut butter and avocadoes, can help quash hunger.
  4. Exercise: 60 minutes of high-intensity cardio can reduce appetite for up to two hours afterward
  5. The return of the Grapefruit diet? : grapefruit lowers your postmeal levels of insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar and fat metabolism.
  6. Chew gum (sugarless of course!) : people who chewed gum for one hour in the morning consumed 67 fewer calories at lunch
Bottom Line

Dieting is hard. Use the tricks that nature provides to curb the hunger pains.
