Hi. I am concerned ay my diet and nutrition and overall health. I have some health-related business I need to deal with but I've been putting it off.

I wanted to see a dietician/nutritionist but I had an issue with my insurance. I was told my insurance doesn't cover dietician/nutritionist visits even though I have the United Healthcare Dual Complete Plan. I think I've read somewhere my insurance does cover this, but I have to research and look into this when I have the time. I just want to be seen by some health specialist who can make sure I'm eating properly and address all my dietary/nutritional issues and concerns.

I've mentioned in other threads that as of the time of the posting of this, my mother is away, at both a local hospital and nearby rehab center, and I'm home by myself, so I have a lot to deal with. My mother needs my help and vice versa.

I have to budget myself and ration the food I get. I'm a big person and I eat a lot but I have to make the food I get last.

I'm trying not to spend too much money on groceries - I have bills to pay and other expenses to deal with. There are places I can go to to get free food; I have to make sure I bring proper I.D. with me.

That being said, what foods are considered natural appetite suppressants?

I read somewhere foods rich in fiber are good natural appetite suppressants. I'll buy some fiber cereal next time I'm out grocery shopping, and/or pick up some from the places that give out free food if they have any.

I read you can drink a lot of water before eating, and drink a lot of water, before eating - these help curb one's appetite.

I know I need to exercise more - I need to consult my physician and a physical therapist about this.

I tried doing simple exercises like sit-ups and push-ups but it was too much of a struggle. I'm probably too fat and I think I put too much unnecessary strain on myself. Before I got fat I was able to do these exercises relatively easily.

This is subject matter for another thread.

Besides water and fiber-rich foods what other foods are considered natural appetite suppressants?

I'm talking about regular foods and supplements. I'm not interested in supplements unless they're something I can get from a supermarket and/or local pharmacy, and they are natural.

I have energy greens which is a special superfood that comes in powder form that I can put in liquids and consume - this helps curb my appetite. This stuff is not something you can get in a supermarket or pharmacy. This stuff was ordered from a health supplement company.

I don't really have the time and money to order any special supplements that are natural appetite suppressants from any businesses anywhere.

Please help. Thank you.

No one here knows anything about natural appetite suppressants? No one here has an answer to the topic question?

@JGoldman10,
STOP YELLING!

If you eat enough of any kind of food your appetite will be suppressed.

Fasting is a good way to suppress hunger, especially if you are a Christian. You're not thinking about food or eating when you fast.

Apparently celery is very good. I heard you use up more calories eating it than you get out of it, but there's plenty of other nutrients if you don't mind a lot of chewing.

If you were talking about any other poster I'd agree with you.

About the best appetite suppressants are proteins, with eggs and meat at the top of that list. They take longer to digest, they provide a constant source of energy, and they leave the person feeling full. Of course, the Vegans will fill their pants over that advice--but that's just an added benefit.

@Setanta,
Actually Set, but it’s connected to the protein in they often go hand in hand, the best appetite suppressant is fat.

The health problems occur when you also eat carbohydrates.

That’s because the body in its efficiency burns up the easier to process carbs, leaving the fat behind to accumulate.

By eating a diet high in various fats including saturated fat, moderate protein and very low carbs, your body adjusts to doing what it was designed to do. Process the fat and protein, leaving you lean and healthy, and able to go long periods without feeling hungry.

It’s hard for us today to wrap our minds around the fact that eating the high fat, good amount of protein and plenty of fresh veg that grow above the ground is what our bodies were meant to do.
Instead we look to bottles of supplements and things that come in boxes and plastic, and are surprised when we become diabetic.

If Goldman wants to loose weight and get healthy, he needs to stop looking for a magic bullet and do the following.....

Walk to the store, or at least walk past the first couple/few bus stops, every other day, and buy stuff like the following when he gets there.

Eggs, avocado, real butter, cream, chicken thighs with the skin on, fatty beef, real cheese, fresh or frozen vegetables that grow above the ground.

He will be able to afford it because he won’t buy bread, crackers, cereal, sweets, milk, root veg like potato, fruits or fruit juice, or soda with sugar.

Once the body adjusts to eating what it meant to eat, and gets all that crap out of his system, he’ll feel great.

@chai2,
You forgot pizza on that list.
There must be a reason to go on, right?

@Leadfoot,
Yeah. Pizza has no carbs, right?
******* stupid comment about pizza being the "reason to go on"

That reminds me of this woman I know, who grilled me incessantly for over an hour (I was a captive audience) about what I eat and don't eat.

What about oranges?
No, I don't eat fruit except for avocado and olives.
What about pineapple?
No, see above.
What about mangos?
What about crackers?
What about cornflakes?

What an idiot.

The best part was, the next day, when she was leaving for home, she gave me a gift of chocolate macaroons. "I'm not sure if you can eat this...."
Not sure why she was so obsessed with food. Probably because she eats a lot of carbs and is constantly hungry because of it.

Pizza is actually one of the foods that, for me, screws up my blood glucose big time.
Then, after indulging, you get to go through the 2 day process of getting your liver and pancreas back in order.

My liver and pancreas are the reason for me to go on.

Three years ago last November, I started taking a long walk every day, with several short walks each day. I lost an amazing amount of weight. How much weight? I don't know, because I don't know what I weighed when I began, nor what I weigh now. However, I've taken nine inches off my waistline. I've also gone from a two- or three-X in shirts to just an extra-large (I do like to have my clothing a little loose). I'm now wearing pants with a waistline of 38" and they are loose on me--I have to wear a belt. An intelligently well-balanced diet combined with daily exercise is the only way to take weight off and keep it off. Of course, now I'm "addicted" to the long walks--if I don't get my daily exercise, I will really suffer. The longer I've been walking each day, the easier it is to continue. You don't need a membership at a gym, and you don't need to exhaust yourself. You just need regular exercise which gives you a mild cardio-workout, and you need to keep up with that.
