My favorite appetite suppressant is to eat enough food to keep me satisfied. I do that by eating a diet that has lots of fresh vegetables fruits. Dieting isn't about starving myself... it's about teaching myself to eat better and in a way that I can continue for the rest of my life.

Yeah, I was gonna say food too, but decided to keep it to myself for a change! Why do people always want a quick fix, diet miracle, fat flush, wrap Magic? The weight did not magically appear and thus will not magically disappear. Short term fixes will only get short term results. Long term changes get you long term results. I'd much rather only go through this journey once. Precisely why I'm still in "maintenance mode" almost 2 years later! I'm making sure it sticks.

I have been on the roller coaster for more than 20 years now, once I start getting results I do better I was just looking for a way to help with the first couple of weeks of hungry when you drop calories. I would love a magic wrap if you find one for sale send me the link!

I completely agree with Hoser and Ncnole, eat enough veggies and you won't be hungry and you won't go over your calorie limit.

That being said you can drink some broth (low sodium) with some "nutritional yeast" not brewers yeast 20 minutes before a meal. This is natural and will just fill you up so you might eat less, that's if quantity control is difficult for you.

When you're hungry, truly hungry not just dehydrated, then eat, but make good healthy nutritional choices . Sometimes all I need is a handful of blueberries and my tummy shuts up!

If you've been yoyo dieting perhaps it's time to step back and see why that is? I wasn't hungry in the first few weeks of dieting, but that's because I didn't starve myself. I had plenty of food... it was just better food than what I'd been eating before.

I have looked for ways to suppress my appetite for years and I have found the magic formula for me. I also do a very low calorie diet plan so appetite suppression is vital on my plan. On waking in the morning I drink 1 tbs, of apple cider vinegar (diluted with 8 ounces of warm water. About 15 minutes later I fill up my 32 ounce jug with lemon water from a pitcher in my fridge. I also (when making my lemon water) use a grater and grate the lemon peel into the pitcher of water. Lemons are full of pectin which is a great source of fiber. Really helps to curb my appetite. I do the apple cider vinegar 3 times a day and drink the water all day. I make up a gallon of lemon water at a time and just keep it in the fridge. It only takes one lemon per gallon of water and it has done wonders for me. Of course some people may have a sensitivity to the ACV or lemon juice but for me, my stomach can just about handle anything. I hope this helps.
Good Luck,

Robin

I have been on both Bontril and Phentermine and lost dramatically with both. I went from being someone who eats constantly to having no appetite whatsoever. It was great--no willpower required and the pounds just dropped off. BUT, after going off them, I regained it all and an extra 15 to boot. So not worth it. I thought that if the weight came off fast I would be motivated to keep it off, but that wasn't true. I hadn't learned anything and went right back to square one. Right now, for the first time in my life, I am trying dieting WITH FOOD (what a concept, right?) and I feel great and see immediate consequences of behavioral choices I make about what to put in my mouth. Without new thoughts and behavior patterns, lasting change cannot happen. For this reason, appetite suppressants are just making the problem worse. I would never advise anyone to succumb to the temptation to use them unless you do it knowing from the beginning that you will ultimately end up fatter when you go off them and you can live with that.

Congratulations pioneermom on learning that lesson. It's one of the top lessons to learn on our route to weight control. The only way to lose it and keep it off is a complete change of eating habits and a change that can be sustained for life.
Well said!

Garcenia HCA and Rasberry keytones. Look them up on Amazon and check out the reviews. They do help most. When shopping for Garcenia stick with the brands that only contain 100% Garcenia. I trust the Life Extension brand and get 90% of all my vitamins from them. Life Extension also has a great website and they are leaders in scientific research for vitamins and health: lef.org

In late 2012, Dr. Oz, (the snake oil salesperson of the year!)promoted Garcinia cambogia extract as a "magic" weight-loss aid. Dr. Oz's previous endorsements have often led to a substantial increase in consumer interest in the promoted products. However, there is a dearth of scientific evidence, and clinical trials do not support claims that Garcinia cambogia is an effective weight-loss aid. A meta-analysis found a possible small, short-term weight loss effect (under 1 kilogram). However, side effects—namely hepatotoxicity (chemical-driven liver damage)—led to one preparation being withdrawn from the market.

A 1998 randomized controlled trial looked at the effects of hydroxycitric acid, the purported active component in Garcinia gummi-gutta, as a potential antiobesity agent in 135 people. The conclusion from this trial was that "Garcinia cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss beyond that observed with placebo".

So , similar to the HCG drops and the Raspberry Ketones put out there, there is no clinical evidence that it works.

What usually happens is that along with the drops or pills you have to do a reduced diet and this is what causes the weight loss , not the magic pills.

Garcinia is actually a purgative, or laxative so that is possibly another reason why some think it works.

Save your money, learn to eat only real natural foods that are nutritional for you. Cut out processed foods and all things 'white', sugar being the worst.
Eat under your RDI and this should help.

Glad to see that I am not the only one that thinks of Dr. Oz as a Charleton. Your posts are always so informative, thank you!

Thanks Mardee, I used to enjoy him when he was on the Oprah shows, then for a bit on his own, he was interesting and informative but he now is just that a snake oil salesperson who comes up with a 'new and miracle' discovery every week/day and it's just sickening.

He has totally given up his surgery practice to be a full time entertainer, how sad.

And it's at the cost of people who believe him when he says something is wonderful or a "miracle" for weight loss. People dont do their own research and they end up with something that causes health problems or more weight gain in the long run. I think he needs to do HIS research better and not tout a product just because they pay him a butt load of money to sponsor him.

If all his 'miracles cures for weight loss' worked, we'd be a nation of thin people because I know millions are spent on these ridiculous products.

I'm like some others here, I had gained about 60 lbs. when I was pregnant with my son and after he was born was looking for a quick way to get it off. I went to GNC and bought a kit with like 4 or 5 different pills for weight loss. I also had a pretty physical job and I was not eating much. So, the weight started to come off pretty quickly, but I started feeling horrible. I actually was hospitalized with a kidney infection, I'm not sure if those pills were actually the cause, but after I stopped taking them I felt much better. There is a reason all of those pills come and go so quickly, because they aren't good for us.

I have been up and down the last few years, but found the best way for me to lose is to be accountable for what I'm eating by recording all my food, get regular exercise, and come here for support when I'm feeling weak. You can do this on your own and you'll feel so much more empowered if you do. Every time I just want to eat a piece of chocolate or something because I'm bored, or just because it's there, I have to push past it and be strong, then at the end of the day I can look back at my healthy eating and be proud of myself. Don't make yourself more unhealthy using pills or powders, just do it yourself, you'll be much happier with your results.

I hope you don't see any of these posts as ganging up on you or bullying or anything like that. Everyone here is truly trying to help and make sure you do the best thing for your body. Whatever you decide is ultimately up to you and none of us can make the decision for you, so I wish you the best either way. Good luck!!
Goals for 2014:
Complete Couch to 5K- DONE!!!
Sign up for and complete a 5K- DONE!! 35 mins.
Plan at least 3 outings with the family that involve being active- 2 done

I do love snake oil,google Brian Tamaki if you want to see a real charlotan at work. Hence asking in this forum rather than a miracle cure. Thanks everyone for the response, I am trying to drink more water through the day and am back on the peppermint tea in between meals to curb the snacking, I will admit to limited success due to lack of enthusiasum on my part. Last week of uni next neek horay horay after 3 years I am over it, school holidays start next week, no kindy to entertain munchkin but on the bright side at least I wont have a ton of reading to do before class. In the last 5 weeks my Gran got sick, she then died and Im not ashamed to say I am broken. I failed a major exam and next week is my sisters 30th birthday, well it would of been if she hadn't died when we were kids. This month I would of bought a case of snake oil and any miracle wraps I could find. But there is alwys tomorrow. Thanks

I find that beer - yes, beer - suppresses my appetite. I sometimes pinch one of OH's Buds from the fridge if I'm feeling hungry and it works a treat. Sure, there's calories to be had from the beer, but I find that the positives outweigh the negatives, providing I don't overdo things Embarassed

oh tamzin, so sorry for your losses, and of course it is in our nature to turn to food to console ourselves. But you should say to yourself, 'what can I do that would make them proud of me'... because they are still with you even if not on this earth.

So show them what you're made of! and congratulations on doing university.
