Eating has been unusual since we have been quarantining during this pandemic. People are gaining more weight and trying to figure out what to do to lose weight and most importantly curb their appetite.
With advice from an expert, Amazons Watch Magazine has got you covered with three natural appetite suppressant by Dr Deb Matthew that can help you stay in shape, looking fabulous like never before.
According to Dr Deb: “a WebMD poll showed that 47% of women and 22% of men had gained weight because of the Covid-19.” “You know, sometimes no pill can compensate for a bad diet, but sometimes we just need a little bit of help.”
“I got three things that are natural appetite suppressant that can actually make you healthier.”
- The first one is called glucomannan.
This is a fibre that absorbs water. It swells up in your stomach to help you keep feeling full, and it slows down stomach emptying. So you stay longer, and you don’t have to take it as a pill you can eat it in noodles. I.e., the Japanese shirataki noodles made from konjac root, they are basically no-carb almost no calories, and they taste delicious. You don’t want to take your medicines with these because they can reduce the absorption of your medicine, but they also reduce constipation and lower your cholesterol.
- The second one is called Gymnema.
Gymnema is a herb from India. It has been part of Indian natural medicine for thousands of years to help with blood sugar, and it can reduce sugar cravings. You know sugar Cravings are the worst.
So if you were to take one of these little capsules, you have to put a few drops of the powder on your tongue, it affects your taste buds, and if you had gone to eat those cinnamon rolls afterwards, they wouldn’t taste sweet so they can help keep your blood sugar down which is a good thing. But if you’re on diabetes medicines, you have to be careful because your blood sugar could drop too low and that could be dangerous. Okay?
- The third one is something that everybody has heard about, but you might not know it’s good for your weight. And that is green tea.
Yes, please, the green tea may be one of the healthiest foods on the planet because it has three different ingredients that help with your weight. One is that it contains ingredients called catechins which actually increased fat burning and boost your metabolism. So who doesn’t want that?
They contain l-theanine, which is calming. You know, we tend to eat more when we are stressed and anxious. So this ingredient helps to curb our appetite.
Also, the caffeine in the green tea suppresses your appetite. So the good news is even your morning cup of coffee can help.
