    Hello! If I want to say that a diet pill 'crushed my appetite' as in it made it go away, curbed my appetite, how would I say this in Spanish? Would it be 'aplastó mi apetito'? Thanks

    Hello.

    I'd say: me quitó las ganas de comer/el apetito. I suppose you could also use another verbs; e.g. 'frenar', 'inhibir'.

    Let's wait for other opinions. Saludos.

    'Arruinar' has a negative connotation, in my opinion. I don't think that's what it's intended here (i.e. we're talking about a diet pill)?
