What are appetite suppressants?


A new study suggests that adding a certain type of food in your regular diet can moderate the rate of weight loss in your body.

It works by reducing your appetite, blocking the absorption of certain nutrients or by increasing the number of calories you burn.

However, the study was published in the journal Metabolism and conducted by a group of researchers from the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre, the Universities of Glasgow and the West of Scotland, and Imperial College in London.

What are appetite-suppressing supplements?

The main function of an appetite suppressant is to suppress hunger and make the stomach feel fuller, which might help in short-term weight loss, said Rinki Kumari, Chief Dietician, Fortis Hospital, Bangalore.

Here are some of the natural appetite-suppressing supplements:


* Whole grain foods

* Oats

* Ragi

* Broken wheat

* Avocado

* Legumes

* Cheese

It is important to speak to your doctor on healthy practices that can be included in the daily regime. Even regarding exercise, it is always advised to follow a moderate exercise routine.
