Control Your Appetite
Like most of the world, when the New Year rolls around one goal I set for myself is weight loss. My husband and I are both trying to eat healthier and to teach our kids to do the same. Learning hunger control can be a difficult habit to break. For both of us, I believe that we need to desperately stop snacking. Portion control would most likely come in second. And finally, eating the proper foods is also a key factor. All things we plan to focus on in the upcoming year.
Therefore, I was thrilled to be introduced to Full Core™. Full Core is a healthy snack replacement alternative and appetite suppressant. The “appetite suppressant” alone was enough to spark my interest. I know that is where I need the most help. I tend to be an emotional eater and will simply snack all day without realizing I am even doing it. So, trying Full Core was something I was really looking forward to!
As I perused the Full Core site for information, I found that by:
reducing your weight by just 10% can begin to lower your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and other obesity-related health problems.
This was intriguing to me since, well, my husband and I are not getting any younger. Heart problems run in my family and I want to stick around for a long time. I have 5 kids to
harass raise for several more years to come. That is perhaps my driving force in getting healthy. My kids.
I also discovered that Full Core, a great alternative to soda I might add, can increase the amount of fiber in your diet. In fact, each 12 oz. can has 40% of the daily value of fiber. Compared to my current fiber intake, anything that can improve my digestive health is pretty amazing. I know that is one place my body is most definitely lacking and I welcome the introduction of it into my diet. Plus, there are 15 vitamins and minerals and only 25 calories in each can. Not bad for a full-size healthy drink.
I can tell you that after only a couple of days, the Full Core drink has helped immensely. I believe part of the wanting to eat is simply that… wanting to eat. The lemon-lime taste was great. There was a bit of a fizz going down but easy to drink and no after-effects. Meaning, we were not jittery afterward and had no effects from the drink. You simply drink it 30 minutes before your biggest meal or drink it whenever convenient throughout your day. We would drink ours before dinner each evening. It really helped with the portion control issue since we were simply not as hungry.
I am excited to see how well this helps jump start our wellness journey for 2013. And bonus: Full Core tastes good and is good for us! We really have nothing to lose… but pounds!
