Hunger is one feeling which many struggle to curb. Isabgol or psyllium husks can help you out. A teaspoon of this husk mixed in warm or cool water or in buttermilk, can be consumed before meals and this will cut down the hunger pangs and prevent uncontrolled binges. Isabgol swells up in the stomach and gives you the feeling of fullness. So in turn it helps to reduce your food intake, cuts down calories and helps you to lose weight. A word of caution, do not take more than 3 teaspoons of isabgol. Excess of fiber can give you indigestion, flatulence etc. This is not a supplement and is not going to dissolve or remove any food from the intestines. It does not reduce the fat intake in the body but just helps to cut down calories.
