10. Say NO! To Appetite Suppressants

I was skimming through some blogs on losing weight and I came across someone promoting a herb that suppressess the appetite. It sounds like a good idea because you are not using chemicals and you can reduce your food intake without hunger pangs...but it's not right. You'll wreck your digestive system!

According to Ayurveda having a strong hunger is a good thing. When you have a meal you should wait until it has completely digested before you eat anything else. That means you will be really hungry for the next meal.

If your digestive system is not strong the food won't digest completely and you won't feel really hungry. So, not feeling 'really' hungry means that your food isn't digesting properly. Food that is not digested properly is the root of most llnesses, according to Ayurved.

Also, hunger is the way your body tells you it needs nutrition. If you start suppressing your hunger with herbs or chemicals you are depriving your body of essential nutrients that it needs to function.

On top of that, your body's natural rhythm will be thrown out of balance. Your body operates on a natural hunger-food cycle that corresponds with nature. Ayurveda says your body will naturally become hungry from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. That's when your digestive system is the strongest.

Once your body's rhythm is not in tune with nature you start down a destructive cycle where you lose touch with your body, mind and emotions.

Losing touch with yourself is what got you fat in the first place. Using appetite suppressants virtually guarantees you will do it again.

And, as you have already seen, once your body is out of balance it's not easy to get it back into balance.

It IS possible to lose weight working with your body instead of trying to make it do un-natural things. If you have a problem with uncontrollable cravings read articles no. 4 to 8 on this blog.
