Appetite suppressors?

I heard caffeine suppresses your appetite. Also heard that adequate water and sleep helps. Anything else?

Nobody said you NEED Ephedra. Stop trying to start stuff. In fact, I just CTRL+F this page and typed in "need" and the only "need" that came up was your post.

I find that if I eat whole eggs (say, 2 fried eggs over easy) for breakfast, it takes me HOURS to get hungry. Egg protein is slow digesting, and I can eat them at 7:30 and not be hungry until 1pm or so. As far as suppressing appetite during the day, hot teas can help (herbal). If you're hungry all the time, you're not eating enough or enough of the right things (protein and fats), or you're sleep deprived.

if you need ephedra to suppress appetite your doing something wrong in what you eat and when you eat it.

plus protein at breakfast may raise metabolism for the day. a high protein breakfast may be net zero calories plus hunger suppression for the day.

Consume fat with every meal.

But more important curb carbs.

Coconut oil can lower and even suppress appetite.

Keep your carb intake low enough to keep you in ketosis, eat plenty of fat and eat until you are satisfied. You will lose weight without going hungry. This is the best way to do it because you are working with your body instead of against it.

Counterintuitively, IF supresses appetite for me. These days, I just skip breakfast most days and when I do I go just fine until lunch. If instead I eat breakfast, even a low carb paleo breakfast, I still eat just as much for lunch and dinner.

Sleep too of course, as you say.

Ephedra (which is quite safe and legal in most places except the US despite the FDA's silly vendetta against the one weight loss supplement that can truly change someone's life.)
Just make sure it's Ephedra/Ephedrine group alkaloids and not some bullcrap like Ephedra extract or Synephrine (which IS dangerous.)

Gymnema Sylvestre

Fat

Caffeine

Ginger

Water (many times hunger, not just cravings, is often mistaken for hunger when reality it's thirst.)

I believe caffeine has little effect on appetite if used chronically.

Lots of things suppress appetite, (amphetamine, nicotine, topiramate, etc.) but not sure you want to go there.

Sleep is a huge one. Sleep deprivation is strongly associated with, and almost certainly causes, increased eating.

Protein is the most appetite-suppressing macronutrient.
