The number one reason people struggle to lose weight is they don’t stick to their diet.
Well, that’s the million dollar question.
Some people get bored with their food choices, lack of progress, and daily routine, and revert to their old eating habits.
Some people get thrown off course by a holiday, vacation, or unplanned restaurant outing and never pull themselves back on track.
Others try to lose weight too fast and end up running into a quicksand of low-energy, irritability, hunger, and obsessive thoughts about food that causes them to binge and gain back much of the weight they lost.
While those first two obstacles are relatively easy to solve, it’s that last one that’s often the bane of even the most experienced dieters.
Losing weight requires that you maintain a calorie deficit for weeks or months on end.
That is, you need to be eating fewer calories than you burn for quite some time to see a noticeable change in your appearance.
Most people have no trouble maintaining a calorie deficit for a few days or weeks, but it’s sticking it out day after day after day that wears people down and breaks their resolve.
And one of the key gremlins that plagues their progress is hunger.
There’s a lot you can do to counter hunger—eating more protein and fibrous fruits and vegetables, eating fewer processed foods, and (ironically) exercising, but if you diet for long enough it will become noticeable, especially between meals.
One of the things you can do to avoid being harried by hunger is taking natural appetite suppressants.
Now, appetite suppressants generally have a bad rap, and understandably so. Many harsh weight loss drugs like clenbuterol work partially because they also reduce appetite, and the most effective appetite suppressants often come with strong and potentially permanent side effects.
For example, while “clen” is an outstanding appetite suppressant, it also increases the risk of heart failure, potassium deficiency, and insomnia.
That said, it would be unfair to paint all appetite suppressants with the same brush as clenbuterol.
There are healthy, effective, natural appetite suppressants that can help you curb hunger and cravings without compromising your health.
While I’m an advocate of getting as much mileage out of your diet and training as possible before resorting to supplements, there are several kinds of natural appetite suppressants worth trying if you’re struggling to keep the hunger hobgoblins at bay.
And by the end of this podcast, you’ll know everything you need to know about which natural appetite suppressants are worth trying and which aren’t.
Let’s get started.
