One way to control hunger pangs if possible is to drink espressos. I used this method years ago when on an extreme low carb diet. But you have to be careful about what time of day you do it. Too close to bedtime and your sleep will be affected.
How does that work? Does it have something to do with the caffeine?

For general information, this is the spreadsheet I created and used back in 2008 when I lost 26 kg in less than 6 months. What is not shown is the actual weights of the foodstuffs that I consumed, but suffice it to say, it was in the neighborhood of less than 1,000 calories/day intake. I was not allowed to start any sort of exercise program other that what I was normally doing and if it was a regimented fitness program I was told to cut way back as the carb loss was such that it could not sustain it. Yes there was some burning of muscle as well but in the process I reduced my HBP back to a normal 40 year old (I was over 60 when I started and just shy of my 61st b'day when I finished). Also my gout was under control and cholesterol was also in normal ranges. My physician stopped all my medications for the 1st time in over a decade. There are heaps of naysayers on here, but I walked the walk I talked. It probably saved my life as I had just ventured into the morbidly obese zone just before I started the program. The program was designed by a cardiologist who is originally from S.Africa but is now based in the US.
Dr. Rami Cohen is an international specialist renowned for his research on the hormones involved in obesity and weights loss, formulated a unique program based on each individual’s particular blood profile from a biochemical analysis of the blood.
Started his medical career in the field of Cardiology and later on in Obstetrics and Gynecology specializing in Infertility
Led the internationally recognized Wits Medical Schools first Test Tube Program (in vitro fertilization) for 4 years
Encountered the “problem of obesity” while conducting his research on infertility
The monthly tabs also work and are linked to the Weekly summary tab.

I hesitated a bit when I responded to your question. Just so that I could double check what I "knew" to be true. Google search yielded this interesting finding -

Tl;Dr. It's actually not the caffeine itself but one of the non caffeine components in coffee. Apparently it is found in a higher concentration in decaf so I will amend my previous suggestion. Decaf with no milk or sugar would be a good appetite suppressant

Ah, I see. That is really interesting, I doubt I’ll ever use it as an appetite suppressant, but its good to know!

you'll lose weight when you take in less calories than you spend. so ensure that you eat less and exercise more. it's not complex

Simply put, yes that is the formula.

1. Do not skip breakfast
2. Eat regular meals
3. Eat plenty of fruit and veg
4. Drink plenty of water
5. Eat high fibre foods
I looked up the point about fiber, turns out it works because foods high in fiber help to keep you fuller and curb your appetite.

Taken from google, “Soluble fiber helps keep your gut bacteria healthy and promotes overall fat loss by reducing your appetite”.

Don’t cut calories. Eat enough. Just get calories from Fats n not from Carbs. U will lose weight easily.

Don’t cut calories UNLESS you are consuming 2,000 calories per meal and not burning them off with a whole lot of exercise!

Portion control is absolutely essential for those who overeat. Who wouldn’t be tempted to sink their teeth into a giant double widow maker hamburger?

That’s essentially keto, no?

For most women, 2000 calories would only be for weight maintenance rather than weight loss. Taken from Healthline, “The average, moderately active woman between the ages of 26–50 needs to eat about 2,000 calories per day to maintain her weight and 1,500 calories per day to lose 1 pound (0.45 kg) of weight per week”.

Ya when I started keto, I did sincerely and lost 9k in 3 months. All my medical reports r better . Nothing detoriorated in 1.5 years. I am lighter agile.

My conclusion is it’s not weight loss. Eating Low carb n high weight is healthy From an internal health, hormonal and metabolic point of view.

Carbs r bad but by the time we realise , we blame it on age.

I am 41 and I feel I am healthier now than I was in 30s.

I think the main aim here to cut weight is to be calorie deficient?

Great results. But isn’t it the weight loss that made the difference? The diet caused the dramatic weight loss which lead to an improvement in your health.

Yes, but there are many ways of approaching weight loss. Various kinds of diets and exercise will all yield different results.
