Your wallet did not loose weight??? surprising ;)
Joking aside, just counting calories and limiting food intake will quite quickly reduce your desire for large portions. Even just using smaller plates helps. I would not use any chemicals or so called "natural" products for that, its risky for no reason and you will spend enough money on new cloths as it is :)
We all have that desire I can guarantee you, fortunately it is a lot faster to loose weight than it is to gain it. It was 24 times faster for me to loose 40 pounds than to gain it :) Still needed 5 months though, time well spent.
The benefit of a gradual weight loss is your body has the time to adjust, so lower chance of loose skin etc and you adjust your eating as a habit instead of just temporarily adjusting it, lowering the chance of bouncing back. Now if there was a pill to give me that 6pack over night without side effects I might be sorely tempted ;)
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
