Appetite Suppressant Helps You Stop Eating Unneccessarily

Researchers from Manchester University have discovered a way to stop us from eating for pleasure, yet only eat when our bodies are hungry.

The substance, which occurs naturally in the body, could pave the way for a new class of dieting drugs that help people shed pounds without distressing side effects.
