In today’s post I am going to review and interesting Journal article I recently read on things that can trigger your cravings and give you 5 easy tips to help control your appetite.

I recently read an article in the journal Brain and Cognition, and it stated that flipping through food magazines and even watching the ever more popular cooking shows can cause you to salivate even if you are not really hungry. But if you are hungry they can make you feel like you are starving. So have a large bottle of water with you to quiet those hunger pains.

Your feelings and emotions can also trigger your hungry. I know that stress, sadness and grief always make me more hungry.Y

So here are 5 easy tips to help curb your cravings and appetite.

One of the oldest diet tips I know is to fill your tummy with water. Or you can eat foods that have lots of liquid like beef or chicken broth. Snack on celery in between meals because they also contain lots of water. Vegetables are great because they give you lots of healthy nutrition that you body needs

Get Physical, when you start to feel hungry drink some water and go for a walk for 15-20 minutes. You can also ride a stationary bike at home, walk on a treadmill or just walk up and down the steps in your house (but don’t trip!). Some of our patients like to do body-weight exercises like jumping jacks or pushups or just run in place. The exercise will help burn calories and also help to reduce your appetite.

One of Dr. Mermelstein’s weight loss tips is to brush and floss your teeth after dinner to help you not stack after dinner.

Another tip is to enjoy some sugar-free gum. This is a tip that I use, especially when I am really hungry and not able to eat.

My wife’s favorite weight loss tip is to put a few drops of peppermint oil on a cotton swab, then place them in a jar with a lid. When you are hungry just unscrew the lid and smell the peppermint. This should help should help curb your appetite.

I hope you enjoy these weight loss tips! If you would like more information on our weight loss program just give us a call at 215-821-7336

Juice Away Your Pounds & Inches by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

And it seems that most of us have put on a few extra pounds as we were enjoying this past summer. So in this article I am going to give you a few juicing recipes that should help you in getting rid of the extra weight that you may have acquired this summer. When you combine the recipes that I give you here on our blog, with our medically supervised prescription weight loss program that uses FDA approved weight loss pills, appetite suppressant medications and diet pills along with vitamin B-12 injection therapy and of course proper nutrition and exercise plans, you have a great package to help you lose weight and also improve your overall health and wellness. So here are the recipes:

With all of the juicing recipes I’m going to give you in this article you have the option to add water to it to dilute it if necessary. If you are watching your carbs in your sugar intake you may have to change the recipes a bit by reducing the quantity of fruit for each particular recipe.

Personally for myself I do not eat more than two pieces of fruit per day. For example if the recipe calls for 4 pieces of fruit I would just use a quarter of each of the individual fruits and make my drink that way. If you are into the high intensity phase of your exercise program and you are feeling overly tired these strings are good for a quick boost of energy. Just be sure to dilute them a bit by adding water to the recipe. You can also add Spirulina or any type of green vegetable powder to any of these juice recipes.

Apples & Carrots Combo Juice

  • Apples – 2
  • carrots – 2
  • This is an awesome juice combination nutrient wise it’s loaded with beta-carotene,  vitamin C, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Just combine all of the ingredients into the blender blend and enjoy.

Seaweed Special Juice

  • This is a great juicing recipe just make sure that you mix up to Spirulina with a little bit of the apple juice and a separate class or jar before combining it with the total mixture. As far as the nutrition is loaded with beta-carotene, folic acid, vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, protein and essential fatty acids.
