Appetite suppressants are not only food supplements and other capsules that help us reduce and suppress our appetite. They are also and above all “food categories” which, thanks to their nutritional properties, promote satiety.
Mithieux Gilles: What are the mechanisms to limit and reduce hunger?
There are two types of mechanisms to ease hunger and crash graving: Mechanism of satiation and satiety information .
- The mechanism of satiation is based on mechanical sensations that inform the brain that “it is full”. Two signals are used to relay this message: distension of the stomach and the secretion of hormones (cholescystokinine and GLP1).
- Natural appetite suppressants are a healthy way to promote satiety! It is not a short-term phenomenon: It occurs only between meals to prevent hunger. By cons, we do not yet know very well the involved mechanisms.
What are natural appetite suppressants that will likely induce satiety?
Gilles Mithieux: All protein foods in general because they have the ability to activate the signal mentioned above and cut hunger.
Almonds are well-known appetite suppressants. Sources of protein, fiber and good fats, almonds quickly fill the stomach by giving the body the right nutrients.
Thanks to their low Glycemic Index and their protein, almonds have a satiating effect. In addition to this, they are an excellent source of magnesium and they are perfect to fight against stress, fatigue and snacking without getting fat!
Is Garcinia Cambogia a natural appetite suppressant?
Miracle Garcinia Cambogia is a small shrub that has long been cultivated in Southeast Asia, East and West and Central Africa. It is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, that potentially contains the AHC, Hydroxycitric Acid.
Carcinia Cambogia not only suppress your appetite, but it also limits the ability of the body to convert carbohydrates into fat.
Garcinia Cambogia has a hormone known as serotonin which helps to control the mood and to balance out the hormones that cause emotional eating. This is one of the reasons why it is recommended by health experts, as it not only helps individuals to look good physically, but it helps them to feel good as well.
It is rich in oleic acid, a fatty substance which activates the feeling of satiety in the brain. So yes indeed, the avocado contains a lot of vegetable fats (fat is not the great enemy), but ultimately fewer calories (160 for the whole fruit), it is rich in vitamins and minerals and simply delicious. In short, Avocado is a real slimming food!
In practice: “When you follow a diet, you can eat half avocado by day with a dash of lemon juice…” says Gwénola Lestrohan. Moreover, as a half avocado brings the equivalent of a good tablespoon of oil, it is advisable to limit to 1 tablespoon of oil in the day.
