The search for the ideal means for losing excess weight is pushed a notch higher almost everyday as people become more conscious of the health risks associated with being overweight. Appetite suppressants are beginning to take their place in the market as one of the best ways one can lose weight.
Sympathomimetic suppressants, such as Phentermine, are counted among the most common appetite suppressants in the market. These prescription appetite suppressants are used for the short-term treatment of obesity. The effects of sympathomimetics tend to gradually decline within weeks and they are recommended for use only in the initial weeks of a particular weight loss program.
There are numerous brands of appetite suppressants sold that contain either prescription or non-prescription drugs. Common types of prescription appetite suppressants are Phentermine, Bontril and Adipex and common types of non-prescription appetite suppressants are Hoodia Gordonii and Phentramin-D. As with all weight loss products, the effectiveness of different appetite suppressants varies greatly.
Unknown to quite a number of people, apples are also categorized under the common types of natural appetite suppressants. The fruit contains fiber that leaves one’s stomach feeling full as soon as it is eaten. Within the apples is also a natural fat burning compound that also aids weight loss. Another natural way in which a dieter can suppress their appetite is by drinking water. Water does not only make one’s stomach full but also helps to keep the body hydrated, which is needed for optimal metabolism. Moreover, water does not have any calories so it is the perfect beverage for a person who is dieting.
For dieters who are seeking a subtle appetite suppressant, Hoodia Diet Pills are a good option. This native South African plant, which can be taken in the form of a pill, is known to fool one’s stomach into thinking it is full.
Another way through which people can suppress their appetite is by taking a dietary fiber supplement, such Metamucil, or eating whole foods that are high in fiber, such as oats, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Fiber helps to curb hunger because it is digested slowly. A diet high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables is not only well balanced, but will keep you feeling full longer after each meal.
Prior to taking an appetite suppressing diet pill, it is advisable that you first consult a health care professional who will be able to advise you accordingly. It is very common for appetite suppressants to be combined with other ingredients in diet pills that may cause adverse health effects in some people. For this reason, you should always read the precautions listed with the product you purchase and follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions and dose guidelines. Prescription appetite suppressants should only be taken under the direct guidance of your doctor.
