I love food, (LOVE IT!!!), but the struggle between staying healthy, eating for activity, keeping my butt from spilling out of my jeans and eating what I want is real!!! My biggest struggle is snacking and binge eating when I get home from work.
I generally have pretty good will power but when I am tired all of that goes out the widow. There is actually a chemical reason that this happens. When you are tired and sleep deprived (like most of us are these days) the levels of a little hormone called Ghrelin, that control hunger, go up and another guy called Peptide YY, that make you feel full, go down. This is basically telling your body that you are starving and never full. Great for hot dog eating competitions not so good for bikini season.
Over the past few weeks I’ve had the chance to try a brand spanking new product out of San Francisco that helps with this exact issue I’ve been struggling all my life!
Welcome to the Wonderful World of MealEnders!
What’s a MealEnder?
I’m so glad you asked. MealEnders are “Signaling Lozenges” designed to help you stop eating when you are not hungry and to help you end a meal when you know you should be done.
How does it work?
Remember that Peptide YY I was just talking about? The trouble with that guy is that once you start eating it takes 20 min for it to kick in and tell your body it’s full. This leaves a 20 min window to keep stuffing your face. (Do you know know how much Pizza I can put down in 20 min? A lot!) This little gem pretty basically treats your mouth with a sweat “Reward Layer” and then reboots your taste buds with the “Inner Core’s Active-Taste Layer” The core is really where the magic happens. It produces a tingling sensation on your tongue working your trigeminal nerve making your brain forget that you wanted to taste that other half of the pizza and giving your body time to realize it’s full. Genius, right!
After trying them for the past few weeks I am totally sold on these bad boys. They taste great and really do work. It has not only stopped me from overeating at meals but I have also used them when I get the board or tired munchies and they worked then as well. My favorite flavor is citrus.
Here are the Deets on MealEnders:
Who are they good for? Everyone one! They are gluten free, low fat, Kosher, have no drugs, or herbs and no high fructose syrup.
What are the flavors? They come in four different flavors, Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon, Citrus and Mocha.
Where do you get them? Right now they are sold exclusively on MealEnders website, www.mealenders.com
