- Drink a cup of water before each meal
- Eat half of a grapefruit before each meal
- Eat eggs for breakfast.
Water, grapefruit and eggs act as natural appetite suppressants in their own way. With regard to eggs, they will help you to significantly reduce the amount of ghrelin, a hormone responsible for stimulating appetite, within your blood. It doesn't matter how the eggs are prepared prior to eating--whether scrambled, over easy, hard-boiled, etc. Eating eggs regularly may enhance satiety, leading to better compliance in helping you to eat less food during the day (e.g., less snacking) and therefore enable you to lose body weight.
