Disclosure: I’m a sponsored Meta Influencer, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
I know that I should be drinking 8 glasses (or more) of water a day.
There are several health benefits of drinking more water…hydration, easier digestion, more full, lose weight, etc.
My problem? Plain water is “bleh” to me.
So, over the last few months, I’ve been “adding” things to my water – things like flavored drops, “SPARKY” supplements, fruit-infusion, etc. And then this month, I decided to take it to the next level.
How To Make Drinking Water Even More Healthy
I’m now adding Metamucil or Meta Appetite Control to my water too.
(You may remember that last month I gave you The Secret Ingredient To The Perfect Smoothie and I am still adding Meta Appetite Control to my smoothies every morning.)
Gang, I’m seriously in LURVE with Metamucil products!!
(And yes, I realize that makes me sound super old, but hear me out.)
Incorporating Metamucil or Meta Appetite Control into my diet has REALLY helped me restore regularity and crush cravings* so I feel less hungry in-between meals*.
That means I snack less. And snacking less makes my pants fit better. And better fitting pants makes me happy – especially with swimsuit season around the corner.
If you are worried about Metamucil being too “gritty” or “thick”, I understand. I don’t like that either.
That’s why I mix two teaspoons with my 16 oz of flavored water and crushed ice. And while my beverage is a little more thick (due to the 100% natural psyllium, a soluble fiber), it is still very drinkable. Plus, since Meta Appetite Control comes in either pink lemonade, orange zest, or unflavored…it’s easy to make the right mocktail.
(And sometimes having a mocktail is all a momma needs…if fact, you need to check out the Meta Website because they have a TON of mocktail recipes under Tips & Articles.)
And it’s an EASY add-on. There is no juicing or freezing or blender time. Two teaspoons, water, and swirl of the spoon. And BOOM, you are done. And snack cravings…well, they are gone.
(PS: This quiz tells you what kind of snacker you are … it’s hilarious. I was an all-or-nothing nosher. Yep, my snacking is the same as the rest of my life. Go big or go home. Plus at the end, you get a coupon for Meta Appetite Control. And who doesn’t like to save a few bucks.)
I know I sound like a bit of a broken record, but I have been SO IMPRESSED with Meta products over the last couple of months.There’s a reason Metamucil has been around since 1934!! They really have made a difference in my healthy lifestyle goals and overall digestive health and I can not recommend them enough.

Yes, I think water and boring and I can’t seem to get in my 8 glasses a day – now if you give me a beer or wine I’d be drinking it all day!
