Foods that suppress your appetite

Whether you're trying to lose weight, maintain a healthy diet, or both, you may run into some major obstacles with choosing the right foods and a healthy amount of these foods. There are benefits and consequences to everything you put into your body, but the important thing to remember is the amount is just important as the food itself. Eating too much of anything is never a good thing, so how can we suppress our cravings?

Thankfully, curbing your appetite does not mean skipping meals entirely. It does mean cutting out the unnecessary carbs and fats, portioning your foods, and making sure you're not overeating. "I personally don't believe in dieting; I encourage my clients to fuel their body based on expected performance. Just like a high-performance sports car our bodies demand the best fuel for optimum performance," says Fitness/Life Coach and Trainer, Myke Collazo.
