Black Coffee

When coffee is ingested it travels to the brain and fuels neurons. When the neurons are fired up our memory, reaction time, and overall cognitive function are increased. Thus, we are able to concentrate better after consuming caffeine. The side effect of drinking coffee is loss of appetite. Drinking a cup of black coffee to avoid eating unnecessary calories is a good idea. This natural appetite suppressant will assist you with losing weight, maintaining weight loss, and refraining from eating empty calories. Furthermore, along with being a natural appetite suppressant coffee can benefit the body in other ways. For example, because coffee is a stimulant it can boost energy levels before a workout. So, drinking coffee before going to the gym can enhance your fitness performance. Coffee should not be used to compensate for poor sleeping habits.

Vegetable Juice, Green Drinks, and Vegetable broth

Another way to naturally suppress your appetite is by consuming the proper amount of vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and water that is needed by the body to function correctly. It is recommended we eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. This is a pretty large amount, and difficult to accomplish by most. However, eating 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily is more realistic by juicing and drinking at least half that amount and eating the other portion at a different time during the day, like dinner time or for a healthy snack. If we intake the proper amount of nutrients and water we will stay fuller long and crave less. So, if you are frequently hungry throughout the day. You should try to increase your fruit and vegetable intake. Vegetable broth is another natural appetite suppressant. However, it is important to leave out the sodium. You can also decrease your calorie intake by drinking a green drink before meals. The hardy beverage will fill your stomach leaving little room for food while providing nutrients. You can also purchase organic green drinks in powder form. Most of them contain a full serving of fruits, vegetables, minerals, and amino acids. Some also contain wheat grass and spirulina.
