While I still ended 2012 lighter than when it started and most of my recipes are pretty healthy, the whirlwind of holiday baking did do a bit of damage. Let’s just say… a muffin a day, leads to muffin top. As February commences, I am happy to report that the snugness in my jeans from holiday goodies is now gone. I’m back to where I was in September, and working on trimming down some more.
I have a new weapon in my arsenal this year, the new healthier alternative to soda, a beverage called Full Core. Each 12 ounce can of Full Core has 10 grams of fiber (40% of RDA), in addition to essential vitamins and minerals. This product fits in well with my healthy eating philosophy. I focus on consuming nutrient rich foods, and stay away from empty calories and over processed junk foods. The bulk of what I eat is veggies, lean meats, whole grains and legumes, with a bit of dairy, healthy fats and fruit thrown in. Generally, my diet is higher in protein and fiber, and lower in carbs than typical guidelines, but like anyone else, I have days that those numbers get out of whack, and a can of Full Core can help set them straight.
I really like that this beverage doesn’t try to replace a meal. It simply helps you to eat moderately, and ensures you are getting enough fiber, along with essential vitamins and minerals to lose weight effectively. As you can see above, their website even includes some recipes.
To be honest with you, I didn’t think I would like Full Core. It is sweetened by naturally calorie-free stevia. To say I haven’t enjoyed most products I’ve tried with stevia would be an understatement. The majority have promptly found themselves in the nearest trash can, blech. This was not the case with Full Core. I found the beverage quite palatable, and have been drinking one each afternoon. I tend to get the munchies then, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live on my elliptical to burn my snacking off. Full Core is actually helping me transition to using stevia.
Full Core appetite suppressing beverages are available in select stores, with more to come. In the meantime, the product is easily ordered off the FullCore website store, with courteous service and quick delivery. To see my experience ordering the product check out my Google+ image story.
If you have been struggling to get adequate fiber in your diet, this 25 calorie diet beverage can help. It will also come in handy if you simply have a hard time keeping portion sizes where they should be or are prone to over-snacking. It is a much better alternative than taking those dangerous energy drinks, that’s for certain.
