Yes, it can. Bitter orange has proven to curb hunger. While orange contains a lot of essential nutrients, it also contains a chemical called synephrine, which is used in several weight loss pills. This is how a bitter orange can help you with appetite suppression:  

·     Contains synephrine which causes thermogenesis, a process which helps the body get heat and energy by food digestion.

·     Lots of fiber, which increases bulkiness of the food and slows down carbohydrate absorption.

·     Resultant feeling of fullness, which curbs hunger.
