In the 2003 film “School of Rock,” portly star Jack Black is asked why he doesn’t go on a diet. “Because I like to eat!” he replies. “Is that such a crime?”
The answer, of course, is NO. Appetite is NOT a crime. If it were, a lot of us would be in jail right now. In fact, I think Jack was speaking for ALL of us who have a few pounds to lose. We like to eat.
It’s often what eventually kills our attempts at dieting. Because even when we start off strong and lose a few pounds, the joy of eating usually derails us.
But new research reveals a way to FINALLY dial down your appetite.
You can still like to eat, of course. But you’ll naturally have a smaller appetite and eat less, just the same.
That means you finally can lose weight, shave inches off your waistline, and reduce that BMI that your doc is constantly nagging you about.
And believe it or not, the secret is, of all things, a common cactus.
The cactus secret to weight loss
If you’ve ever been to India, you may not have realized it, but you’ve almost certainly seen the caralluma fimbriata. It’s an absolutely unforgettable cactus.
The weird looking caralluma features a long, green stalk with a bright purple-to-red star shape across the top. And it grows EVERYWHERE over there. You’ll even spot it growing wild along the sides of the highways.
And let’s face it, when something is THAT common, you can bet people got really curious about it over the years. Which, of course, led to folks smoking, tasting, and eventually even eating the cactus.
Over those centuries of experimentation, they found, quite by accident, that caralluma fimbriata is GREAT for suppressing the appetite.
In fact, Indians have used it across the generations during famines to help control hunger pangs. And tribal people used it when out on the hunt, so they could knock down their appetite and make do with less as they sought food for their people.
Now, new research out of Australia confirms this weird little cactus could do for you what it did for them. Caralluma could suppress your appetite, helping you to eat less even if, as Jack Black put it, you like to eat.
Dial DOWN appetite and dial BACK eating
The researchers recruited 83 volunteers who were then divided into two groups. Group one was given caralluma fimbriata supplements with breakfast every day. While group two received a look-alike placebo.
After 16 weeks, the volunteers given the cactus had two key differences:
- They had lower levels of the “hunger” hormones that urge you to keep eating.
- They ate 245 fewer calories each day, compared to 16 fewer calories a day for the placebo group.
In other words, the plant’s legendary appetite-suppressing benefits showed up in a BIG way. Plus, the participants who had the real-deal cactus capsules also lost an inch off their waistline.
Not too shabby when you consider they weren’t even dieting.
Other studies have found caralluma doesn’t just target appetite. The cactus may help reduce anxiety and stress too.
In fact, it may even act as a serotonin receptor, which would lead to more calm and less hunger. Not to mention less emotional eating.
The best news of all? You don’t have to travel to India to give this appetite-suppressing trick a try. In fact, you don’t even need to munch on cactus. Caralluma fimbriata is readily available as a supplement and even a tea.
Still need a little extra help dialing down your appetite? A hidden blood sugar dip could be to blame. In fact, it could be responsible for adding up to 20 pounds to your waistline.
