Honey mojitos, anyone? This delicious herb is a natural appetite suppressant. Blend it into lemonade or add it to your favorite dessert. It goes well with strawberries and other fruit.

3) Flax Seeds:

These little seeds expand in your stomach after you eat them. So, while they’re taking up extra space, you’ll feel fuller longer. Sprinkle them on anything from salad to muffins if you want to reduce snacking between meals.

4) Cinnamon:

If you’re a curry fan, then you’re going to love this one. You’re most likely to find this bright yellow spice in curries. Turmeric not only has a bold flavor, but adds curcumin to dishes. This compound cuts off the blood supply to fat cells to make it hard for them to multiply.

7) Cayenne Pepper:

Want some heat? Cayenne offers a lot more than just some extra heat. Try adding this spice to your next savory dish and you’ll be feeling full for awhile. Cayenne also shrinks fat cells and lowers blood fat levels.

8) Black Pepper:

9) Ginger:

This flavorful root spices up dishes while kickstarting metabolic rates and suppressing your appetite. Add it to your lemon tea or mix it into your veggie omelette. Mmmm!
