Apples provide satiety and can help suppress your appetite. According to a study published in 2006 in the journal “Appetite,” eating an apple was found to reduce hunger in women. The hunger-suppressing effect of apples may be due to their high amount of soluble fiber and pectin, which help you to feel full.
Hot And Sweet Pepper
Both hot peppers and sweet peppers may help decrease your appetite. Capsaicin — found in hot peppers — and capsiate — found in sweet peppers — have both been shown to suppress hunger sensations, according to a study published in 2012 in the journal “Chemical Senses.” The researchers noted that the appetite-suppressing effect was small, but that including hot and sweet peppers in the diet may help with weight management.
Evidence suggests that ginger can decrease your appetite and increase satiety. According to a study published in 2012 in the journal “Metabolism,” men who consumed ginger reported decreased hunger and greater feelings of fullness compared to those not given ginger. Based on these results, ginger may play a positive role in weight management, according to the study’s authors.
If you love chocolate, now you may have one more reason to eat it. In a study published in 2010 in the journal “Regulatory Peptides,” the relationship between appetite and gastrointestinal hormones after smelling and eating dark chocolate was evaluated. Researchers had women either smell or eat 30 grams of dark chocolate that contained 85 percent cocoa. Both smelling and eating the chocolate was shown to induce appetite suppression in the subjects.
