I’m not what you call a firm resolution maker. However, every year, I do like to set a few goals on how I can be a better person. I’m a pretty positive person and choose happiness and fun where ever I can. I’m also a firm believer that one must put the oxygen mask on themselves first in order to help others. I spend every morning helping my children pack balanced lunches and choose healthy, satisfying snacks, but when it’s time to pack my own lunch, I’m out of time. The lack of planning usually results in a slapped together peanut butter sandwich, and a few random snacks thrown into my lunch bag. Hectic days at the office leave me feeling even more frazzled by the time I come home. Most nights I walk into dinner on the table, which is amazing. Everyone should be as lucky as I was to marry a man that cooks. The caveat is, I don’t relax before diving head first into a plate of dinner. Next it’s a rush to clean up the dinner dishes, check homework, and get the kids to bed on time. By the end of the day I feel I deserve a reward for just making it through, so I find myself in the pantry looking for dessert. I knew I needed to break this crazy cycle of over indulging, so for the past two weeks I’ve been Conquering Chaotic Snacking Behavior with Meta Appetite Control, a fiber supplement from the makers of Metamucil.
To start, I took this fun POPSUGAR Snack ID Quiz that told me exactly what type of snacker I am. Meta Appetite Control partnered with registered dietitian nutritionist Jessica Fishman Levinson, MS, RDN, CDN, to create these “Snack ID” profiles to help you determine what type of snacker you are. So when I took the quiz, it was no crazy news flash. I was a classic STRESSED-OUT SNACKER.
I eat all of my feelings; happy, sad, and everything in between. Many times it’s mindless snacking. Sometimes I’ll snack with the belief that it will take the stress away, but we all know that’s not really true. I’m making the effort to make all snacking mindful. I try to think about whether I’m really hungry, or just feeling overwhelmed. If I take a minute to eat a few chocolate squares, why can’t I take the same minute and get up and walk around to clear my head? Makes total sense right?
I’m making an extra effort to pack well a similar well balanced lunch for myself. I keep my refrigerator stocked with perfect grab and go lunch options like Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and thanks to my local grocery store, washed, cut and ready to eat vegetables. What the prepared vegetables save me in time and stress is worth it.
Many of us hit the 3:00 wall and feel the need to snack. Now instead of reaching for food, I mix glass of cold water with Pink Lemonade Quench Meta Appetite Control. It satisfies my sweet tooth and the main psyllium fiber thickens in my digestive system, slowing absorption and digestion, which aids in the sensation of fullness. I’m no longer starving when I walk in the door for dinner. I can relax a few minutes when I get home before jumping right into meal time. This helps me feel less overwhelmed with the remaining nightly routine. Meta Appetite Control contains 100% natural psyllium, and is clinically proven to help you feel less hungry between meals* and works naturally with your body. Meta Appetite Control is a fiber supplement that can help you reach your fiber daily goals, while helping you “break up” with daily snack cravings*.
