Getting to grips with a bulging waist line and shedding unwanted pounds is hard work and the nagging feelings of hunger that are part and parcel of any weight management regimen can be particularly hard to cope with.
So hard in fact, many dieters simply fail to surmount this first important hurdle and give up.
That’s where appetite suppressants come in.
Effective appetite suppressant formulations can help quiet a nagging stomach, keep the hunger pangs at bay, and give dieters the edge they need to stick with the regimen and get the fitter, leaner body they crave.
The Eating Habit
Eating is important. The calories contained in food provide the body with the energy it needs to function, but there’s a big problem.
Food tastes so good that it is easy to fall into the habit of eating more of it than the body really needs and overeating on a regular basis causes the stomach to stretch.
This creates more room for even more food and allows people to further overindulge their eating passions. Eating a lot can quickly become a habit, but the human desire for food is not the same as a genuine need for food.
If it was people would be able to keep on cramming the cakes without fear of stepping on the bathroom scales. People put on weight for one reason and one reason alone—consuming more calories than the body requires. Whenever this happens the excess calories are stored as body fat.
It’s easy to become overweight. Obesity is big problem, especially so in the Western World where hectic lifestyles can result in a reliance of fast food; and it doesn’t help matters when so many establishments ask their customers if they would like to ‘go large’ and purchase an extra generous helping of food.
More often than not customers do choose to ‘go large’ and over indulge some more, feed their food habit, and grow large in the process.
Falling into the eating habit may be easy. Watching the waistline explode is much harder to swallow and like any habit the eating habit is a hard habit to break.
How Appetite Suppressants Work
Phentermine stimulates glands in the brain and causes them to release a hormone called norephrine which then triggers a state of fight or flight.
When the human body is in a state of fight or flight it is geared for one thing only—survival—and chemical changes occur to quell anything that may distract the body from the task at hand, including hunger.
Fortunately for dieters some natural appetite suppressing formulations can also trigger a state of fight or flight, so Phentermine’s unavailability (without a prescription) does not mean effective appetite suppression is reliant on a doctor’s intervention.
This is far from being true and triggering a state of fight or flight is not the only way of tricking the body into forgetting the desire for food.
Some ingredients can stimulate the production of the hormone serotonin, which also has the power to suppress the appetite and offers the added bonus of enhancing the mood.
It’s the body’s ‘feel good’ hormone, but losing weight and looking good does not have to be reliant on the production of hormones. There are other ways of misleading the stomach and removing the desire for food and the ingredient Glucomannan achieves this in quite a clever way.
Glucomannan is a fibrous substance taken from the roots of a plant. It is very absorbent, soaks up moisture like a sponge, and expands considerably in the process.
Glucomannan has very little nutritional value and passes through the body undigested, so it will not in itself contribute to weight gain, but it can contribute much to weight loss.
Appetite suppressants that utilize Glucomannan are always taken with plenty of water, which ensure the fibers swell within the stomach to create a feeling of fullness. A full stomach is a happy stomach so any nagging feelings of hunger quickly disappear.
Appetite suppressants are an invaluable weight loss aid that can put the ‘control’ back into the calorie controlled diet that is so important to successful weight loss.
Results can be improved by burning off extra calories via exercise or by combining appetite suppression with an effective fat burner, but this is an option not a necessity.
Suppressing the appetite is an effective way of breaking the eating habit and once that habit is broken weight loss is pretty much guaranteed.
