Dieting doesn't necessarily means to starve and feel hungry all the time, but becoming hungry is still very likely no matter which kind of diet you take. So what causes you to become hungry? When your body runs out of calories from the food you eat, you will get hungry. It's your body's way of telling you, that you have used up the energy from your food.

Anyway, if you want to lose weight you have to cut-down calories from your diet which is mostly carbohydrates, fats and it will definitely make you hungry which is not an easy thing for anyone of us. Fortunately there are cheat-codes to trick your body into thinking that you're full. There are many natural appetite suppressors and Green tea is one of the most effective ones out there. It can cut down your hunger signals without feeding you those extra calories. It is wise to include green tea in your meals, as it would also make you feel better while dieting.


Note: Green tea won't magically make you thin. All it does is make you feel better instead of feeling hungry all the time and also helping you in burning fats. To get the full potential of it, exercise and choose low-calorie diets.
