Fat Loss Supplement Guide

Cravings Overview:

Supplements that do not reduce hunger per se, but can possibly reduce ingestion or preference for a certain food type (fats or sweets) or can reduce appetite during certain periods of time where emotional eating would increase.Basically, these things won't cause you to eat less. They will entice you to eat less. Not as forceful as all-out appetite suppression, but sometimes not as effective either.For appetite suppression (or stimulation), please refer to the appetite stack.

Suggested Supplements

Dehydroepiandrosterone

Dosage: 4mg

Reduces appetite for and consumption of Dietary Fatty Acids.

This is the lowest dose shown in rats to reduce appetite and consumption of fatty acids in rats, after conversion to human dosage size (The dose in rats was 25mg/kg bodyweight). Still a relatively high dose, however, and perhaps starting out with 100-150mg DHEA would be prudent to see if the effects persist.

5-HTP

Dosage: 100

100mg 5-HTP has anecdotally been said to reduce cravings for carbohydrate containing foods in particular, possibly secondary to its ability to influence serotonin levels in the body and alleviate a needed spike in serotonin from carbohydrates (Consumption of carbs facilitate conversion of amino acids to serotonin, causing a spike)

Rhodiola Rosea

Dosage: 10-20

10-20mg/kg bodyweight Rhodiola Rosea, or 0.312-0.624mg/kg bodyweight Salidroside (the active component) has been shown to either reduce or eliminate stress-induced binge eating (respectively, with the higher range of doses being more potent) in overweight females.

Magnolia Officinalis

Dosage: 750

3 servings of Relora (Magnolia paired with Phellodendron Amurense) has been shown to reduce cravings from food induced by stress in a sample of obese but otherwise healthy women.

The dose was 750mg overall, but 250mg taken three times a day to be more specific
