When you begin a fat-loss diet, it’s not so bad—if you make your calorie reductions gradual. Even so, appetite starts to crest as the weeks progress. You seem to get hungrier as the days wear on, and the possibility of a fat-storing binge becomes increasingly real.
There are ways to curb your appetite, and one of the best is with a fiber supplement. According to the November ’12 Better Nutrition, PGX is a special type of fiber that “expands in your stomach when combined with food or beverages, making you feel full on smaller portions.” Studies indicate that PGX also helps to keep blood sugar stable, reducing the chance of cravings and fat storage. The suggested dose is five grams with water a few minutes before a meal.
