Everything You Need to Know About Dieting

Appetite Suppressants

Attempts to suppress appetite have been around almost forever.

        • In the 1800s, tree sap & camphor tea were thought to suppress appetite.
        • Ice water is purported to both suppress appetite and increase short term metabolism.
        • Along the same lines, soup based diets (see Cabbage Soup diet) claim to suppress appetite.
        • Other methods of appetite suppressant include dietary fibre (see food & supplements),
        • homeopathic & aromatherapy preparations,
        • herbal appetite suppressants (see Hoodia Gordonii),
        • and synthetics like fen-phen.
