Now, I'm still debating whether Dr. Oz is reliable or not. But he sure can scare da schit outta you.

I would also like to how I can reduce my appetite naturally. I am too scared to use meds and pills. I tried Hydroxycut once after a lady I know lost over 40lbs in 2 month. I thought I was having an aneurysm. Adipex....a big hell. Can anyone suggest like "tricks" or habits that actually reduce your apetite? I hate feeling hungry for too long. All by diets, including low carb and reduced calories made me feel hungry all the time. I can't be a hungry student or nurse. Cry
I think I can be a compulsive eater at times.
Off to Dr. Oz's site. Yeah, y'all can chuckle. lol!

short version:
one natural habit you may want to get into is to eat a high protein breakfast. it helps regulate your hunger and cravings for the rest of the day
 
long version:
if you're into low carb/paleo/primal/whatever they're calling it these days, the leptin reset may be for you
the hormone leptin is more science than most people would interested in, but if you're interested in some short reading http://www.jackkruse.com/my-leptin-prescription/

the main premise being to eat a good breakfast with at least 50g protein, eat a certain amount of carbs, and no snacking. in 6-8 weeks, your hunger is better controlled and your cravings are reduced, all by an increased sensitivity to leptin

Really stimulants? I drink coffee sometimes, only because I love the way it tastes w/ hazelnut creamer, it doesn't do sht for me except make me use the bathroom a lot. I want to get adhd meds again, which I did take as a child and I know most of them are stimulants. I've never heard of them doing that, and now I'm kind of terrified.

Btw, to the suggestion of Phentermine. It works. I've never tried it but I know it does. My doctor won't prescribe it though because it can cause heart problems (and it's not like a rarity, it's pretty common)


do you have a heart problem?

and i think for coffee to be a stimulant you need to drink it black. otherwise you're adding calories. which is why ppl just take caffeine pills.

Not any that I know of, but I wouldn't want to develop one from taking it, which I've heard happen to many people.

I can't bear drink it black, it tastes so rancid. I do add a hazel creamer if I do drink it. Perhaps I'll try caffeine pills.

Hmm....I drink alot of water and I also take Nuvigil.  It's supposed to be used for those suffering with narcolepsy but I have to take it for another condition.  It um....it will keep you wide WIDE AWAKE Stern Smile but for ME it also suppresses my appetite.   This is a prescribed medication.  I can generally make it thru my day on one tablet and still be able to get to sleep at night with no issues.  No heart palpitations or whatever.....just a general feeling of alertness and no appetite.

If I can't get my meds I drink two big cups of coffee followed by insane amounts of water and that kills my appetite and any reason to snack out of boredom.
