6 Superfoods That Fight Cravings, Kill Hunger and Melt Fat Away

When you hear “superfoods” you probably think of foods that heal and improve your health … but did you know that some of them have the ability to do even MORE?

Nagging hunger pangs are one of the biggest reasons dieters fall off track.

When you’re hungry, it can be hard to make the right decision.

And, you probably know what happens when you get especially ravenous – it can be very difficult to think and you may even start to feel dizzy!

All you want to do at that point is to feed your appetite, which means, you’ll most likely reach for any food that’s nearby, and often not the healthiest choice.

This is where “superfoods” really flex their superpowers – there are several that can actually suppress your appetite!

You should always keep at least some of these superfoods in your arsenal of weapons to battle the bulge.

1. Nuts and seeds

Nuts not only contain healthy fats that help you maintain optimal cholesterol levels, they’re also a great source of appetite killing fiber, which digests slowly, meaning it stays in your stomach longer, helping you to feel fuller longer.

As they’re high in calories, limit what you consume to what will fit in the palm of your hand.

A handful of raw almonds is ideal, they’re a rich source of vitamin E, magnesium and antioxidants, in addition to increasing feelings of fullness to aid in weight management.

When you’re carving Jack o’ Lanterns this Halloween, be sure to save the pumpkin seeds too.

They’re a tasty treat when roasted, satisfying the urge to snack and helping to regulate blood sugar which also works to curb the appetite. Just a small handful in between meals is a great way to ease those hunger pangs.

2. Avocados

As avocados are packed with fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, they’re really good for helping to suppress the appetite and keeping your diet on track when eaten in moderation.

Add about one-quarter to one-third of an avocado to a smoothie, or to a healthy salad to keep you feeling fuller longer.


3. Wild-caught Salmon

Coldwater fish like salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids which helps to increase the amount of a hormone known as leptin in your body.

Leptin is the hormone responsible for suppressing hunger!

Just be sure to choose wild-caught salmon so that you don’t get the contaminants found in farmed versions.

Studies have also found that farmed salmon comes with a hefty, unhealthy dose of other fats like omega- 6 that can harm your weight loss efforts and your health.

4. Eggs

Eggs can be used to make all sorts of meals, and they can help fight cravings for less healthy foods while also helping to maintain muscle mass.

One study found that those who ate an egg or two for breakfast, felt fuller over a 24-hour period than those who ate a bagel with the same amount of calories.

Egg eaters also ingested fewer calories over the course of a day than those who had a bagel in the morning.

Scramble some up with mushrooms, another superfood that serves as a fat fighter, and you’ve got the perfect quick and easy meal.

5. Apples

You know the saying, “an apple a day…”

Well, it not only keeps the doctor away, it can keep pounds at bay too!

Apples are a fabulous fall superfood, packed with soluble fiber and pectin, which helps you feel full. Varieties of all types are known to suppress hunger and they can also help regulate blood sugar and boost your energy level too.

As they require quite a bit of chewing time, it helps slow you down, giving the body more time to realize that you’re no longer hungry.
