These 10 Foods Will Help Reduce Your Appetite
Eating anything in a big quantity without weight gain is the dream of millions of people. And while I’d love to tell you it’s easy, unfortunately, it’s almost impossible for most. But don’t get upset because there are a lot of tasty foods that are beneficial for your figure and may reduce your appetite. Take a look at our list and add some of these foods to your menu if you want to lose some weight.
Salmon contains a lot of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. This combination of nutrients allows you to stay full longer. Salmon consumption reduces the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
Avocado is an excellent source of beneficial fatty acids. The oleic acid they contain reduces appetite, which helps to consume fewer calories. During the experiment, Californian researchers found that people who ate avocados at lunch every day wanted to eat 40% less 3 hours after eating.
Caffeine helps burn calories and break down fat in the body. Coffee can also suppress appetite. It’s usually recommended to drink about 2 cups of regular ground coffee for effective weight loss. But you should keep in mind that the dosage may vary depending on your body’s needs and heart health.
4. Chia Seeds
Chia seeds can absorb a big amount of water. This property helps to fill the stomach and contributes to a feeling of satiety. Chia seeds in your salad may effectively reduce your appetite.
5. Coconut oil
Only coconut oil contains medium-chain length fatty acids. They are absorbed differently than the longer chain fats, and this has a positive effect on metabolism. Coconut oil helps to burn calories and get rid of belly fat.
Eggs are a nutritious source of high-quality protein which can make you full for a long time. Studies confirm that eating eggs for breakfast will help you consume fewer calories throughout the day.
7. Chili pepper
Chili pepper contains capsaicin which reduces appetite and burns fat. The study shows that eating 1 gram of red chili reduces appetite, suppresses hunger, and contributes to weight loss.
Spinach contains thylakoids which increase the level of a hormone that regulates energy metabolism and controls hunger. Thylakoids suppress appetite and lead to weight loss. 100 grams of spinach per day is enough to get rid you of some those extra pounds.
9. Green tea
Green tea contains two substances that promote weight loss such as caffeine and catechin. The first substance helps to burn fat and suppresses appetite, and the second one accelerates the metabolism and also contributes to weight loss. The combination of these two substances in green tea makes the body burn calories more efficiently. One study showed that the consumption of caffeine and catechin helped increase calorie burn by 4%.
Gingerol which is contained in fresh ginger root promotes weight loss. One study showed that daily consumption of gingerol helps people lose weight and also control the level of leptin (a hormone that regulates energy metabolism). This allows people to reduce their appetite.
