  1. I have very small appetite. I do not get hungry until about ten or eleven at night, after which I have a bowl of cereal. I do not eat breakfast, have a tiny lunch and have a tiny enough dinner at 7 or 8 in the evening. It is worth mentioning that I used have a much larger appetite, until I started drinking coffee when i was about 21 or 22. Since then, my appetite has decreased.
    For me anyhow, it certainly kills my hunger.

  2. I have always been sensitive to caffeine. It does not take much at all for me to feel the effects of it. I mean if I drink coffee past 10 a.m. in the morning it will affect my sleep for 2 to 3 days. What that means is I usually don’t get more than 2 to 3 hours of sleep over the next few days and it’s not good sleep. Another thing about me regarding this sensitivity to caffeine is I’ve noticed that if I drink it everyday for several weeks or in other words a couple of months maybe two to three months it completely kills my appetite. I’m not sure what’s going on there I think it’s something about the wait it’s absorbed in my stomach or my stomach lining. I also noticed that when I am drinking less water that seems to be even more true. I think…

  3. Not me – actually it makes me more hungry, or hungry quicker, as if I digested the food faster. As an amateur doctor, I imagine that it makes the stomach acids more acid or something like that. If I want to supress appetite, I can use tea with milk or carbonated water (don’t overdo this, of course). Or you could try to eat healthier and exercise and all that. 🙂

  4. The general understanding is that coffee makes you feel less hungry because it’s a stimulant and you get all hopped up and energized, but since there isn’t much substance, that short-term boost doesn’t help you compensate for poor eating, and you’ll either crash, or need more and more coffee to sustain yourself throughout the day.
    If you were thinking of just taking caffeine pills for the same effect, though, you might not have much luck. According to Coffee, hunger, and peptide YY , a study done to see the effects of coffee on hunger, one group that was given just caffeine in water showed “no effects on hunger” while “decaffeinated coffee can acutely decrease hunger and increase the satiety hormone PYY.”
    In the middle? Good old caffeinated coffee, which “showed a pattern between that of decaffeinated coffee and caffeine in water.”
    Enjoy!

  5. Coffee and Tea are hunger killer !!
    So you should not drink more coffee just to eat less. Its not good for health, instead good meal or small meal/snacks are the best option to kill hunger. Coffee and tea are not the one, besides it reduces the sleep as well. Because of which your skin might look unhealthy. So drinking it once or twice is good enough but not more than that.
