Appetite is a person’s desire to eat food. It is distinct from hunger, which is the body’s biological response to a lack of food. A person can have an appetite even if their body is not showing signs of hunger, and vice versa.
A person’s appetite can rise and fall due to a wide range of factors, sometimes causing people to eat less or more than their body needs.
In this article, we look at appetite in more detail, including the factors that can affect it, how to increase or decrease it, and when to see a doctor.
Appetite is a person’s general desire to eat food. A person’s appetite might dictate how much food they want to eat, as well as the type of food they feel like eating.
Hunger occurs when the body recognizes that it needs more food and sends a signal to the brain to eat. The signs of hunger often include:
- rumbling or gurgling in the stomach
- a feeling of emptiness in the stomach
- feeling lightheaded or dizzy
- trouble concentrating
According to the Canadian Society of Gastrointestinal Research, a person is less likely to have a preference for what they want to eat when they are hungry. In contrast, someone with a desire to eat may find that specific factors increase their appetite. These may include:
- boredom, stress, or another heightened emotional state
- seeing or smelling food that appeals to them
- routine, habit, or a special occasion
Health conditions, medications, and environmental factors can also change a person’s appetite. Lifestyle factors and health conditions can affect hunger, as well.
A wide range of factors can affect appetite. We look at some common examples below:
In a 2017 study on the ketogenic, or keto, diet, researchers noted that people who start following a diet often experience an increase in appetite at the start.
However, after continuing to lose weight and staying on the diet for 3 weeks, the participants in this study no longer experienced this increase in appetite. The keto diet is high in fat and low in carbohydrates.
Other studies state that protein increases satiety and feelings of fullness after meals. A diet that contains adequate protein may, therefore, help regulate a person’s appetite.
A person’s emotional state has a significant effect on their appetite. For some people, stress or grief may cause them to eat more food as a way of coping with how they feel, but for others, these emotions have the opposite effect.
Some mental health conditions also affect appetite, including:
Binge eating disorder involves periods of excessive overeating, which feelings of guilt and shame then follow. A person with this disorder may strongly desire food and eat it even though they are not hungry. Anorexia nervosa, which causes someone to restrict their food intake, may reduce the person’s desire to eat even though their body needs food.
- eating smaller meals more frequently
- eating foods with high energy values, such as fruit, nuts, and cheese
- preparing smoothies at home that contain plenty of energy and nutrients
Pregnancy can also increase appetite by causing cravings. A 2014 study suggests that cultural norms have an effect on what foods women may crave during pregnancy, which may lead to overeating.
Numerous medications can affect a person’s appetite. Some medications that can cause weight gain include:
- blood pressure-reducing medications, such as metoprolol (Lopressor)
- some epilepsy medications
- certain diabetes medications
- antipsychotic medicines
- steroid hormones, such as prednisone (Deltasone)
- certain antidepressants, such as paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline (Zoloft)
Many medical conditions can cause a person to lose or gain appetite, including:
- Infection: Bacterial or viral illnesses, such as viral gastroenteritis, can temporarily reduce a person’s appetite.
- Thyroid disease: The thyroid has a significant effect on appetite. If someone has hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, they may notice an appetite increase or decrease.
- Cancer: Cancer can sometimes cause a direct loss of appetite, depending on the symptoms, as well as the location of the tumor and whether it releases hormones. It can also cause indirect loss of appetite due to a person’s response to treatment.
- Parkinson’s disease: According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, this condition can cause a loss of taste or smell, which may reduce someone’s appetite.
- Kidney disease: If the kidneys start to fail, certain waste products will build up in the bloodstream. This buildup can lead to a lack of appetite.
If a person has a low appetite due to an underlying medical condition, treating the condition may improve it.
For longer term causes of low appetite, such as cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) suggest that people adjust their eating habits to increase their desire for food by:
- eating foods that look and smell appealing
- using aromatic spices and herbs to improve the flavor
- making meals enjoyable by playing music and presenting the food in an attractive way
- eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day
- eating at consistent times each day
- planning meals the day before
- drinking plenty of liquids
As other lifestyle factors, such as sleep, exercise, and stress, also influence appetite, PanCAN recommend:
- getting enough rest
- getting regular exercise
- taking medications to reduce nausea, if appropriate
A person who finds that they want to eat more food than their body needs can reduce their appetite by addressing the underlying cause.
The Obesity Medicine Association also recommend mindful eating. People can practice mindful eating by:
- waiting until they are moderately, but not ravenously, hungry
- avoiding distractions, such as the TV, during meals
- taking five deep breaths before eating
- using their senses to appreciate how the food looks, smells, and tastes
- taking small bites and chewing thoroughly
- paying attention to the body’s signs that it is full
A person can adjust what they eat to increase feelings of fullness by avoiding processed foods and simple sugars. Instead, they can focus on meals that contain a balance of protein, healthful fats, fiber, and carbohydrates.
In a 2018 study, researchers found that drinking water before a meal helped reduce the number of calories that the participants ate during the meal. Although this may not directly affect appetite, it might help reduce hunger.
A person should talk to their doctor if they experience unexplained appetite changes, in case an underlying health condition is affecting their appetite. A doctor can also help someone switch medication if its side effects are responsible for appetite changes.
A person with a mental health condition that makes them want to overeat or severely limit their food intake should talk to a doctor or therapist for support.
Appetite describes a person’s desire to eat. Many factors can affect someone’s appetite, including their environment, lifestyle, mental health, and physical health.
Mindful eating can help someone pay attention to when the body needs food. However, if a person with a high or low appetite suspects that there is an underlying cause, they should speak to a doctor.

A new study has found a definitive link between eating more fruits and vegetables and lowering your risk of type 2 diabetes by as much as 50 percent. Even adding a moderate amount of plant-based foods to your daily diet, about one serving per day, is enough to make a big difference, the study found.
The research measured vitamin C and carotenoids in the blood of 22,000 people in eight European countries over 16 years and reported on the incidence of type 2 diabetes among those who ate the most fruits and vegetables, a medium amount, and the least amount. Vitamin C and carotenoids are reliable markers for fruit and vegetable consumption, and by measuring plasma there is a much higher chance of accuracy in the research than self-reporting where participants often relay inaccurate information about their own eating and exercise habits.
The study, published in The British Medical Journal, found that there was an inverse relationship between people who ate the most vegetables and fruits and cases of type 2 diabetes, and those who ate the fewest plant-based foods had the highest rates of type 2 diabetes, also called “adult-onset” because it is not genetic in nature but is brought on by lifestyle factors such as dietary choices. The most surprising thing about the study, was that the “middle” group proved that even a modest amount of additional fruits and vegetables, measured at about 2.3 ounces a day– or one serving– had a diminished risk of diabetes of about o30 percent. So you don’t have to go fully plant-based to see health benefits. Just adding more vegetables and fruits to your plate is enough to see positive results.
The study has wide-ranging implications for the “five a day” recommendation of servings of fruits and vegetables currently touted as healthiest. In looking at the blood plasma markers it’s clear that nearly 69 percent of people in England and 85 percent of people in European countries don’t achieve that goal. In the most recent survey available, Americans fare worse: Only about 1 in ten people achieve the recommended daily 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, according to a CDC poll from 2017. According to the CDC’s data, just 12.2% of adults eat the recommended amount of fruit, and 9.3% eat the recommended amount of vegetables. On average, Americans eat fruit once a day, and vegetables 1.7 times a day.
The study indicates that the dietary guidelines might be more effectively written to encourage people to eat: “Just one more serving of plant-based food a day” since that extra 2.3 ounces appears to benefit the majority of those who achieved modest intake. This is especially true in respect to “low carb” diets such as keto diets, which require people to reduce carbs to go into ketosis and burn fat as fuel. The study recommends increasing fruit and vegetable intake, even though these are complex carbohydrates, for health purposes.
The European Fruit and Vegetable Study Recommends One More Serving a Day:
“Various dietary guidelines have recommended increasing fruit and vegetable intake as an important component of a healthy diet. However, evidence derived from a food frequency questionnaire for the specific role of fruit and vegetables and their subtypes in the prevention of type 2 diabetes has previously been weak and inconsistent. The potential overall benefits of fruits and vegetables have also been questioned within certain popular dietary regimens that favour low carbohydrate intake, including advice to limit the consumption of many fruits and vegetables,” meaning keto diets.
“Although five portions a day of fruit and vegetables have been recommended for decades, in 2014-15, 69% of UK adults ate fewer than this number, and this proportion is even higher in European (EU) adults (86%). The low population level concordance with the “five a day” recommendation provides an incentive to quantify the benefits of making small changes in consumption of fruits and vegetables even below the threshold of the widely recommended guideline level, as suggested by our findings from the dose-response relationship of the biomarkers with fruit and vegetable intake presented in [the chart above].”
A Diet of Fruits, Vegetables and Whole Grains is Best to Avoid Type 2 Diabetes
To convince anyone still wavering about what to put on their plate–salad, greens, whole grains versus over-processed or animal-based foods-–a second study from the US looked at even more people over a longer period and found that whole grains such as oatmeal, whole grains, brown rice, and even whole grain bread or non-sugary cereal also lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes. This study looked at whole-grain intake among 158,000 women and 36,000 men. and found that participants in the highest category for total whole grain consumption had a 29% lower rate of type 2 diabetes compared with those who ate the least amount of whole grains.
That study found: “Higher consumption of total whole grains and several commonly eaten whole-grain foods, including whole-grain breakfast cereal, oatmeal, dark bread, brown rice, added bran, and wheat germ, was significantly associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. These findings provide further support for the current recommendations of increasing whole grain consumption as part of a healthy diet for the prevention of type 2 diabetes.”
The study also concludes that there are several similar findings in the research, so although this was a review of data, the conclusions are in keeping with previous studies: “The inverse association between higher whole grain consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes has been found in previous studies. A meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies showed that total whole-grain consumption was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. Moreover, this meta-analysis showed that a higher intake of several whole-grain foods, including whole-grain bread, whole-grain breakfast cereals, wheat bran, and brown rice, were associated with a similar risk reduction in type 2 diabetes.”
Type 2 Diabetes Affected Nearly 1 in 10 Americans, or 34 Million People
According to the CDC, more than 34 million Americans have diabetes (or nearly 1 in 10), and approximately 90 to 95 percent of them have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes most often develops in adults 45 and older, but more and more teens and young adults are developing it.
Type 2 diabetes is a failure of the body’s ability to produce enough insulin to process sugar in the blood, so the fact that a diet high in fiber, from vegetables and fruit, and with slow-burning complex carbohydrates such as oatmeal and quinoa, means that the body can furn off the fuel from food at a steady pace and not have to release insulin spikes that signal the body to remove the excess blood sugar and store it as fat. In the simplest terms, food that burns as steady fuel, combined with exercise, maintaining a healthy weight and not overeating, is a way for insulin levels to remain constant, low and healthy. When you eat processed foods, high in sugar, fat, preservatives, sodium and chemicals your body can’t metabolize the onslaught of added sugars and fats fast enough, creating insulin resistance and eventually insulin failure. The result over time is type 2 diabetes.
Keeping inflammation low and concentrating on a diet of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fat from plant-based sources (olives, nuts, avocados) is the best way to stay healthy, avoid type 2 diabetes and maintain a steady weight over decades.
FRISKA, a new health and wellness brand will launch 10 innovative dietary supplements available nationwide focused on improving gut health, a key component to overall health and well-being. Based on the insight that 70-80% of your body’s immune cells reside in your gut, FRISKA’s proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and a clinically-proven probiotic anchor each of the unique formulations. While the benefits of probiotics are widely known, the power of enzymes is often overlooked.
Digestive enzymes are biologically active proteins that perform vital functions, like breaking down food, eliminating toxins, and even building muscle. They also facilitate important chemical reactions in our bodies— like converting carbs to energy. Many digestive enzymes are produced naturally in our bodies with the help of a number of important organs, including the stomach, intestines, pancreas, and liver. However, some healthy people, as well as those with certain medical conditions, may become deficient in these enzymes over time.
“FRISKA was inspired by my personal desire to help others improve their health,” said FRISKA founder John Peine. “After experiencing my own health scare I began researching enzymes and probiotic spores as a way to improve gut health. I spent over a decade in the retail industry so I knew that the solution had to be easy and the product must work.”
Prior to founding FRISKA, Peine spent 15 years at Target as an executive in their merchandising ranks. “FRISKA was born out of my own belief that good health is for everyone. Whether you are just starting your wellness journey or you are an accomplished wellness warrior, these innovative products will help you along the way.”
FRISKA also enlisted the help of Dr. Gregory Bernstein, an accomplished Gastroenterologist known as the ‘Seattle Gut Doctor.’
According to Dr. Bernstein, “Now, more than ever, we are increasingly aware of the essential role of a healthy gut. This includes proper nutrition, a balance of good gut bacteria and optimal digestive enzyme function. Digestive health is key not only in feeling good but also to help prevent the development of various infections by boosting your body’s natural immunity. Additionally, a healthy gut helps prevent and manage a variety of medical conditions, ranging from diabetes to depression and so much more.”
The FRISKA portfolio consists of 10 proprietary enzyme blends combined with potent probiotics that are condition-specific including:
- Immunity Boost to help break down food and support the body’s immune system
- Mood Boost to break down nature’s three major energy sources—carbohydrates, proteins, and fats—while boosting mood and sapping stress
- Energy Boost to help break down and digest nature’s three major energy sources – carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Organic caffeine, extracted from organic green coffee beans, is also included to rev up your energy
- Nightly Reboot to facilitate food breakdown and promote healthy digestion. Melatonin and chamomile—both known for their ability to improve sleep—are also included to encourage nighttime rest and relaxation.
- Dairy Ease to help break down hard-to-digest sugars and proteins found in dairy
- Carb Ease to help break down complex carbohydrates
- Keto Boost to help break down and process food while boosting the body’s natural immune function. Aloe vera and amla extract—both known for their anti-inflammatory properties—are also included to help soothe symptoms associated with a ketogenic diet, like heartburn and constipation.
- Gluten Ease to help break down hard-to-digest proteins and carbs in gluten-containing foods. Marshmallow root, ginger root, and fennel seed powder are also included to help treat symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity.
- Women’s Daily to promote healthy digestion while improving immune function and overall mood. Cranberry extract, biotin, and vitamin D are also included to address ailments and deficiencies prevalent in adult women.
- Men’s Daily to aid in the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats while boosting your immune system. The addition of lactase, which is commonly deficient in adult men, helps to break down the sugar found in dairy products. Vitamin B6 and B12 are also included to promote overall well-being.
FRISKA’s premium quality doesn’t stop with the product. The finished product is a month’s supply packaged in a cobalt blue glass bottle within a modern paperboard tube that is recyclable and biodegradable.
FRISKA launched in May at CVS Pharmacy, CVS.com, Whole Foods stores nationwide as well as Amazon, retailing at $29.99. For more information on FRISKA, visit www.getfriska.com or follow the brand on social @get_friska.
ABOUT THE FRISKA BRAND
The idea for FRISKA started with founder John Peine’s search for answers to his own health issues and the belief that a healthy gut is key to your health and well-being. What he found was that while the benefits of probiotics are widely known, the power of enzymes is often overlooked. Digestive enzymes are biologically active proteins that perform vital functions, like breaking down food, eliminating toxins, and even building muscle.
They also facilitate important chemical reactions in our bodies—think converting carbs to energy. Many digestive enzymes are produced naturally in our bodies with the help of a number of important organs, including the stomach, intestines, pancreas, and liver. However, some healthy people, as well as those with certain medical conditions, may become deficient in these enzymes over time. Some symptoms of this deficiency include diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating, and gas. FRISKA’S proprietary enzyme blends help ensure you’re maintaining healthy enzyme levels for optimum gut health. So meet your belly’s new BFF and create healthier habits.

HUMBOLDT PARK — A new takeout restaurant in Humboldt Park is serving a classic Chinese street food burger with a modern twist.
The Han Burger, which rents a space in the Cloud Kitchens shared commercial kitchen at 3220 W. Grand Ave., has been busy with takeout and delivery orders since it opened in June, said co-owners John and Arami Hackett.
The restaurant features Chinese burgers with pork belly or beef brisket, slow-cooked for 10 hours in a variety of spices with fresh cilantro, with hot peppers from Taiwan on a traditional “mo” bread bun.
The Han Solo marinated pork belly burger is the kitchen’s signature item, but the owners recently added a Chicago Han burger, which has giardiniera instead of the spicy peppers, and a Keto Han burger, the original burger without the bun.
The owners call their concept a “re-imagining” of one of the world’s oldest burgers, a Chinese street food called roujiamo.
“We basically took the essence of roujiamo and added more meat and more bread,” said chef Arami Hackett. “We westernized — or Americanized — it so it’s easier to market to the American population.”
Arami Hackett, who is from Shanghai and moved to Chicago in 2018 with her husband, is excited to bring her culture to the city in a new way. She said the burgers can be customized by adding a fried egg on top, other vegetables or garlic aioli as a sauce. They are also bigger than traditional burgers in China to match American portion sizes, the duo said.
Apart from westernizing the historical burger, Arami Hackett said the aim is to educate people on the classic street food and attract adventurous diners who are eager to try something new. And Chicago is exactly where to find them, she said.
“It’s the perfect city to introduce the Han Burger,” she said, adding that friends have compared the burgers to an Asian Italian beef sandwich. “I love Chicago and I love Italian beef.”
John Hackett, who handles the marketing side of the restaurant and helps in the kitchen, said they are excited to bring this type of Chinese cuisine to the Humboldt Park and add to the city’s culinary tradition.
“Chicago is consistently rated the No. 1 food city in the entire country, if not the world, so to be able to introduce something that really hasn’t been introduced here previously — to people who are already very spoiled with their food choices — has been fun,” John Hackett said.
John Hackett said the coronavirus pandemic presented the perfect opportunity to open up an online restaurant since takeout and food delivery have become popular in the last few months.
The couple is looking at restaurant spaces to offer dine-in service to expand since the community response has been so overwhelming. But for now, John Hackett said Humboldt Park has allowed the Han Burger to reach people from various West and North side neighborhoods.
“It’s a fun journey for both of us because we actually have an opportunity to educate people [on] this sandwich that has been around over a long period of time and is consistently loved over dynasties and generations,” he said.
Arami Hackett said when the couple first met in China, they joked about quitting their marketing jobs and opening a restaurant. Now that it’s become a reality for her, she said she is excited about the career switch and is learning things every day.
“I am not used to being called ‘chef,’” she said. “Twenty-year-old Arami had no idea I’d be a chef and working in my restaurant.”
For now, Han Burger offers only five burgers, but the owners are working on two more: a vegetarian and lamb option. The couple also plans to open a keto kitchen with low-carb, high-fat lunch options called Deeper Purple Kido Kitchen, but they want to grow Han Burger first.
The Hacketts hope their burger dishes can bring happiness to customers during an unsettling time in the world and want to connect with the community through food.
“I truly believe food can bring joy to people’s lives,” Arami Hackett said. “We want to provide [happiness] in people’s lives.”
