Trying to find the solution to stop cravings? Look no further. This video is the ultimate guide to stopping sugar, food, and sweet cravings for good with 8 natural appetite suppressants that work.

Food and sugar cravings are a dieter’s worst enemy.

Everyone has experienced that moment when walk to the fridge, look inside, realize nothing is on your “diet,” and walk away disappointed.

Sometimes it can even be difficult to tell if you’re body is actually hungry or just bored.

And while there is plenty of bad advice, pills, and hocus pocus theories out there, today, The Health Nerd is going teach you how to stop cravings with 8 simple appetite suppressants that actually work.

#1. Drink water first

Thirst and hunger cravings are often confused. This is because our sedentary lifestyle does not fit what our bodies were designed to do, so the brain “prompts” us to get up and go do something.

To conquer this, drink a large glass of water when “hungry” and then wait a few minutes. You will often find that the craving goes away and your body was simply “bored” and searching for a dopamine hit.

#2. Sip on some Peppermint Tea

A study done by Wheeling University showed that inhaling the scent of peppermint every two hours caused people to eat 1800 less calories than normal. It also showed reduced cravings for sugars and fatty foods.

#3. Try Mediation

Strange but true, meditating has been shown to reduce binge eating by up to 70% in severe food addicts. It has also been shown to increase focus, improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, and make you more empathetic of others. You only need 5 – 10 minutes for these effects, And it can be done anywhere…

#4. Eat lots of protein and fibrous carbs at the same time

Protein has been shown to greatly reduce cravings and help people naturally decrease their calories by up to 441 per day. Fiber has been shown to reduce appetite by up to 39% as well. Combine them in meals like a steak and spinach salad or an apple with a high quality whey protein shake.

#5. Drink decaf coffee

It looks like decaf coffee has finally found its place in the world. Not only does it have antioxidants and nutrients, it is also a strong appetite suppressant. In fact, it was proven to beat out regular coffee and caffeine pills for helping people stop cravings.

#6. Drink apple cider vinegar throughout your day

Vinegar increases the fullness you feel from your meals and causes people to eat 200-275 fewer calories throughout their day. Apple cider vinegar can also help you fight sugar cravings by stopping those mid-day crashes with its blood sugar leveling effects. Drink 2 tablespoons in 8 oz of water 30 minutes before your meals for best results.

#7. Spice things up.

Adding in cayenne pepper to your meals has been shown to increase metabolism and curb appetite. It has also been proven to increase fat burning in men and women. So adding in a little Sriracha or Louisiana hot sauce to your food will help stop your cravings.

#8. Eat satiating foods

The biggest problem people have is eating foods that don’t truly satisfy them. Foods like butter, white bread, ice cream, and pizza fill you up with calories but are proven to still leave the body unsatisfied.

On the flip side, foods like watermelon, grapefruit, steak, broiled fish, oatmeal, apples, and potatoes have been proven to leave the body feeling full.

Eat more of those foods to stop your cravings.

Wow, I didn't know this was a general thing. I drink decaf coffee (with a shot of almond milk and vanilla flavouring) when I start to crave sweets at night and it helps a lot.
