The New APPETITE Blockers

Before I start writing this post, I’d like to thank those scientific

researchers who The New Appetite Blockersmake their best always to discover new findings that make our life easier, and help us get rid of what disturbs us like our excess weight!

A new study at the University of Warwick in the UK has found that the Tanycytes – which are receptors located in the hypothalamus in the brain) are not only responsible for controlling energy level and Endorphin secretion in human body, but they are also responsible for detecting nutrients in the food we eat every day.

So what’s exciting about this study?

 that make our life easier, and help us get rid of what disturbs us like our excess weight! always to discover new findings that make our life easier, and help us get rid of what disturbs us like our excess weight!  

The good news is that this study has specified 2 amino acids to which those receptors are sensitive to, when Tanycytes react with these 2 amino acids, you stop feeling hungry and you feel full!

Briefly, these 2 amino acids are the new natural way to control your appetite, and stop craving sugary and salty foods.

Nicholas Dale, who is Ted Pridgeon Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Warwick, commented:

“Amino acid levels in blood and brain following a meal are a very important signal that imparts the sensation of feeling full. Finding that tanycytes, located at the centre of the brain region that controls body weight, directly sense amino acids has very significant implications for coming up with new ways to help people to control their body weight within healthy bounds.”

So what are these 2 amino acids?

Amino acids found in high protein foods such as chicken The New Appetite Blockers, meat, eggs, fish, and other sources are well known to be the best appetite curbing nutrients comparing to carbohydrates and fats, because they need a long time to be digested in the stomach, so they will keep you feeling full for a long time, and because these amino acids don’t raise the blood sugar and keep it stable, so you won’t crave any sweets.

With this new finding about the effect of Arginine and Lysine on our appetite, protein will become at the forefront for all dieters who wish to control their appetite and lose weight.

What foods contain Arginine and Lysine?

  • Chicken
  • Mackerel
  • Beef Sirloin Steak
  • Tuna
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Plums
  • Apricots
  • Dates
  • Avocados
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Lentils
  • Almonds
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts

So now based on this study, I’d like to give you the following advises to help you include more Arginine and Lysine – and other amino acids- in your diet:

  1. Thanks for this information I found it really interesting to read why you should eat certain things as so often we can read about what we should and shouldn’t eat but don’t really understand the reasons why. Thank you so much for that information great read and great advice I will take on board!

  2. Thanks for the explanation of what arginine and lysine can do to curb appetite. I’m curious, do you recommend only getting them from foods or do you also recommend getting them from supplements? If so, do you have any particular brands of supplements that you recommend over others? Thanks!

  3. From the day I learned about the benefits of Arginine, I added more of it to my diet. It was recommended for my heart health, and I use a powdered form (L-Arginine) in water. I drink two 8 oz. glasses every day. Most of the foods listed in this post are a part of my diet, but I was not even thinking about getting Arginine from them. This is reassurance to me that I am on the right track getting these two amino acids Arginine and Lysine in my diet.

  4. Arginine and Lysine! Yay!!! I learned something new today that will help me lose weight. I have been and am still trying to lose weight. And your list of foods will really help me curb my appetite and help me achieve that. Thank you.

    I took note of the foods. And I like the part about adding Parmesan Cheese! Yes! Delicious! I enjoy snacking on nuts. So that’s good. I didn’t know about dates. Will get some.
