How do you curve those junk food temptations?
Which foods will help you feel fuller, longer?
Is starving yourself the answer?
The reason over HALF of the population have some sort of cardiovascular disease is because people eat too much unhealthy food also known as a high number of bad calories. If you consume too many calories let alone the wrong calories you’re going to gain an extreme amount of weight and bodyfat. And the reason for this is, there are so many tasty junk foods that are hard to resist such as fried chicken, ice cream, cookies, candy bars and pizza paired with beer, wine and so many other alcohol-related drinks either with or without a high content of sugar.
When you have so much temptation in the world, when it comes to fast food or sugary snacks then it makes it exceedingly difficult to suppress consuming these types of food and drink. Think about this – it’s cheaper to eat junk food than it is to eat healthy, and there’s a reason for it (it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why). Most of the healthy foods that are available at any natural food store are more expensive to buy than eating unhealthy foods. You would think it would be the reverse when it comes to the price (OR putting a price on your health) but unfortunately, it is not.
So, what should we eat to kick the cravings?
Since the temptation is overwhelming when it comes to eating too much of the wrong foods, what are the best natural appetite suppressant things to consume?
Foods that are high in water and fiber which are fruits and vegetables are called high volume foods and they will fill up your stomach.

Water does more than help hydrate…
Water as we know is great for flushing and cleaning our digestive system and is good for the skin too. But it’s also a great natural appetite suppressant. If you drink about 1.5 liters of water per day you will have less of an appetite when it comes to eating. Drinking water may be the healthiest beverage you can consume since there are no calories in it. Sixty percent of the human adult body is made up of water so that gives you an idea of how important it is to drink water and maintain a healthy hydration level. Water is a great daily appetite suppressant because it feels your stomach up while making you want to eat less food.
TIP: “Drink a large glass of water
(or two, or three – whatever you can build your tolerance
level up to) before eating your meal.
You’ll eat less food and digest your meal better,
every time!” – Obi Obadike CFT, SFN, M.S.

- Lean Meats

Some good healthy fat sources are:
