You’ve heard me talk about my desire to lose weight before. I’m always enthusiastic about it, I’ve got a challenge to tackle or a brand new mindset that is sure to help me succeed. Problem is, all of those approaches either don’t work for me or more likely, I just don’t follow through. What I’ve decided is if I want to be successful I have to address each issue I have. Making a blanket plan just doesn’t seem to be working for me so I need to dig in and address specific details. One is support, I need a much better support system to keep me accountable. Another is my emotional eating, and I have some plans for that. The issue that I want to address in this post is my late night snacking.
After the kids go to bed my stomach seems to think a twelve course dinner has been hidden around the house and I need to partake. I need to find something to help me eat less in the evenings. I’ve tried some meal replacement programs, but those plans only manage to make me starve even more in the evenings. I’ve tried eating healthy through the day, but it seems like my brain is programed to want more food at night no matter how much I’ve had during the day. So, I decided to try something a little different. A hunger control drink. That’s right, I decided to try Full Core to help me stop snacking when I don’t need to be.
Full Core is a lemon lime carbonated drink. It has a lot of vitamins and minerals and it has 40% (10 grams) of daily fiber needs. It’s no wonder this product is great for hunger control. Another thing I love is that because it is carbonated I’m hoping it helps me reduce my daily craving for Coke because it is sweet and carbonated. A perfect soda replacement!
I found out that we’ll be getting an AKiN’s market in my area soon, which is one of the locations I can get Full Core when ever I run out. But until then I can check out the website. Actually, I’ll probably be on the Full Core website for more than just ordering products. I’ll be looking for recipes and keeping tabs on my BMI as I start to get my weight loss issues ironed out. Check out this screen shot from their site of a great pork tenderloin recipe I found! There are pages of these great recipe ideas, and they even have some vegetarian options too. Healthy recipes for everyone!
Shipping only takes about a week, it’s not too bad, and they send you an email to let you know when your order has shipped. I thought that was awesome. When I got my order of Full Core I was a excited and a bit nervous to try it. Inevitably it seems like anything marketed for health benefits is going to taste nasty, but this wasn’t the case here. Full Core is actually really good. It has a great lemon lime flavor and it does what it’s supposed to as a product for hunger control. The first couple of cans of Full Core left me struggling to finish the serving, not because I didn’t want it, but because it filled me up so well. I thought it tasted like a carbonated lemon lime water drink, but my husband said he thought it tasted more like a lemon lime soda. He’s tough to sell on anything, so if he says it’s good as a soda replacement, then I think it’s settled.
Full Core has been a great addition to my evening routine. While they suggested to drink a can before the largest meal of the day, I found it to be more beneficial in hunger control to drink it after the kids go to bed to help me stop snacking at night.
If you are having trouble with weight loss like I am I highly suggest looking at your situation and figuring out what issues are contributing for your lack of success. When I took a step back to see what my problem areas were in weight loss, I discovered there were a lot of obstacles I wasn’t addressing. Ignoring doesn’t fix most of those problems and that would cause me to bounce back to my old habits. I think Full Core is going to be a great way for me to address the late night eating, and maybe push me in the right direction for getting more fiber into my diet the natural way through fruit, veggies and whole grains.
If you have trouble with saying no to food at certain points in the day, I highly suggest trying out Full Core to see if it can help you with hunger control like it has for me.
