Natural appetite suppressant

Eating a high-fiber diet suppresses the appetite. And now we know why! The latest study discovered the anti-appetite molecule called acetate that is naturally released when our intestines digest fiber. When the intestinal bacteria ferment the fiber, it releases large amounts of acetate as a waste product. Newly formed acetate is quickly transported to the brain where it signals us to stop eating. We’ve always known the natural benefits of increasing the amount of fiber in our diets to reduce appetite – we just didn’t know why. Processed foods have low dietary fiber and helps compound overeating – but the companies already know that. Maybe that is why they don’t add good fiber to the highly superficial and over-processed foods. Cave men supposedly ate about 100g of fiber per day compared to our wimpy 15g average.
