Next time you have cereal, oatmeal, fruit, or even coffee, sprinkle some cinnamon on it. This zesty spice, like other ones like cloves and ginger, helps lower blood sugar levels, which helps to control your appetite. Cinnamon flavoured chewing gums are available in the market, you can give a try.
#2 Wasabi(Japanese horse radish)
This spicy little something suppresses appetite and reduces inflammation (that’s bloating!). No wonder why you feel full after eating sushi!
#3 Virgin Bloody Marys
Need something to make your morning a little brighter? Look no further than everyone’s favorite hangover antidote. Hot sauce reduces hunger and calorie intake, and horseradish suppresses appetite and increase digestion.
#4 Grape seed Oil
Have two teaspoons of this “good fat” two hours before lunch. It will slow down gastric functions, helping you to stay fuller longer.
#5 Pasta – Yep, Pasta
These are no ordinary noodles. They’re made of a soluble fiber found in the konjac root, called glucomannan. This miracle food literally “soaks up your hunger.” While it reduces the amount of carbs your digestive tract absorbs, it also combats constipation, diabetes, and cravings. Use it in powders, supplements, and noodles.
#6 Pine Nuts dheevadhaaru (దేవదారు)
These little packages contain big benefits – namely, the ingredient pinolenic acid, which stimulates the hormones that make your brain think, “I’m full!” Have a shot-glass full of these to combat hunger and increase protein intake.
#7 Umeboshi Plums రేగుపండు
These are simply plums that are pickled to be extra sour – a great shock to that stubborn sweet tooth. You can find them at a specialty or health food store, or Asian supermarket.
