12 FOODS THAT CAN SUPPRESS APPETITE

1.  GREEN TEA: an age-old traditional drink of the Chinese is also available in our local markets. The patechins in green tea hamper the movement of glucose into fat cells. This slows down the rise of blood sugar and prevents high insulin. When your blood sugar is stable so is your appetite.
2.  DARK CHOCOLATE: its appetite suppressing quality lies in its bitter taste. Choose 80-100% dark cocoa. Also the steric acid in dark chocolate helps slow digestion to help you feel full for longer.
3.  EGGS: Eggs are good appetite suppressant especially when eaten in the morning. No matter what we have for breakfast. Taking one egg with the superlative quality   protein and vitamin A will obviously supply you nutrients and energy all day.
4.GINGER: Ginger has been deemed as the cure for stomach disorders since ages. The chemical composition of ginger can affect your digestion and hunger in the best way by adding normal digestion and being a great source of fibre. It has the inherent property of reducing hunger. Add ginger to your tea and fruit juice for that twist. You can even make it a necessary additive for your vegetable preparations.
5.  AVOCADOS: Avocados are high in energy, but the fat they are composed of are the good ones. The essential fats in avocados actually trigger the satiety feel.
6.  APPLE: Apple of all varieties and types help suppress hunger for a number of reasons. First, apples are filled with soluble fibre and pectin which help you feel full. Apples also regulate your glucose and boost your energy level. Finally, Apples require chewing time, which helps slow you down and gives your body more time to realize that you are no longer hungry.
