To reduce the need to snack between meals, you can take some food rich in fiber. Fruits, for example, are rich in fiber and contain no fats, so they can be used as a healthy snack between the hours, to lessen the craving for sweet and not arrive with a voracious hunger to the next meal.
Another type of remedy for less hunger consists of substances that help calm nervousness, such as foods rich in tryptophan (serotonin precursor), or plants with hydroxycitric acid, a component of Garcinia cambogia that takes away hunger.

Fast metabolism depends on the same factors as slow metabolism. It can occur by age (children and youth), by having a lot of physical activity or a lot of muscle, or by hormonal causes. It also influences sex, as men have a higher metabolism than women.
Accelerated metabolism usually manifests with nervousness and thinness, which should not be treated with the intake of greasy products, but with a diet rich in complex carbohydrates.
