I’ve been exercising and have been successful with loosing a couple pounds. My problem is cravings at night even after I’ve had a healthy meal. Was considering appetite suppressants, anyone know of any that really work?

@SamanthaLovesJames: I’ve been wondering about this as well. But was worried that it’s more in my mind than my actual appetite…
I was wondering about “Sensa” if anyone had used it, and what it really does.

I’ve heard of Hoodia but some don’t work, I want to try one that really works.

@SamanthaLovesJames: I would consult your doctor before taking one, but I would imagine your cravings are more psychological than physical. If you’re used to having ice cream after dinner for example, you’re just used to that routine, and it’ll take a while of changing your behaviour replace it.

Have you been drinking enough water? It’s most likely the cause for you hunger pains at night, as we often confuse “thirst” for “hunger”. Try drinking more water it should help.

Before u try a pill try some natural ways to suppress it. Coffee supress appetite, maybe try decaf when u get Tue cravings. Walk a warm cup or tea or milk does the trick sometimes. I don’t know if you are eating carbs, but if u save ure carbs for the day for dinner it will should keep u full until u go to bed. Also all snacks are not bad…so maybe air popped popcorn or carrots or a cup of yogurt.

Skip the pills. Here are some natural remedies:
- have a low-cal filling dinner (brocolli can be very filling)
- drink hot tea (decaf, of course)
- take up knitting (or anything that will keep your hands busy while you watch TV)
- schedule a 100 calorie snack after your dinner to ward off cravings
- choose a low-cal snack that is filling (like air popped popcorn)

I have found the best way to supress my appetite is to eat meals that are high in protein early in the day. My breakfast usually consists of 2 hardboiled eggs, and a good snack when you get really hungry is an apple with peanut butter, or celery with peanut butter. I’ve found that if I eat a lot of protein throughout the day (especially before 3 – which is when my hunger really spikes!) I can manage my meals much better, and I don’t crave sugary sweets either.
