Why is it that when you turn 42-years-old stuff gets HARD?
I was chatting with a couple of girlfriends this week about how hard it is to lose a couple those few extra pounds that I put on over the back half of 2016. I never remember it being this hard. And then when I was chatting with my 50-year-old friend, she educated me that it gets even harder in a few more years and how she wished she would have taken care of herself in her 40s instead of having to start now.
So, I dedicated 2017 to be the year that I get back on track. I’ve been exercising more, been more mindful of my eating, and I’ve been drinking fruit or veggie protein smoothies in the morning for breakfast. And while simple green smoothies are great on their own, I’ve started adding one ingredient that has not only taken the taste from good to great, but added a key health benefit too.
Meta Appetite Control from the makers of Metamucil.
(Okay, before you go … “WAIT, Kel! I’m not that OLD. I don’t need Metamucil yet.” … hear me out.)
Meta Appetite Control contains 100% natural psyllium, a soluble fiber that works with your digestive system to help it run smoothly and is clinically proven to help you feel less hungry between meals.* Plus, it helps your digestive system become more regular. I’ve been adding Orange Zest to my Tastes Like Ice Cream Green Smoothie and Pink Lemonade Quench to my Triple Berry Smoothie. (They also have an unflavored smoothie enhancer version of Meta Appetite Control if you are just looking for the benefit, but not the taste.)
The Pink Lemonade Quench in the Triple Berry Smoothie is the BOMB. Seriously … it reminds me of a Pink Lemonade Dreamciscle. It’s like dessert in a glass and I love having it a “treat” snack in the afternoon.
(PS: This quiz tells you what kind of snacker your 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 love that Meta Appetite Control is a simple add-on to my smoothie. Just add two teaspoons to your smoothie concoction and it seriously makes a HUGE difference in curbing cravings between meals*. You can mix Meta Appetite Control with water if you are looking for a simpler solution.
So, while I may not be “that old”, Meta products have made a difference in my healthy lifestyle goals and overall digestive health. It’s true! There are so many benefits to adding a little fiber into your life.
