No matter what your “Snack ID” is, Meta Appetite Control has a solution to help you “break up” with those bad snacking habits!
Whether you’ve realized it or not, we all have our own personal snacking routine. So, how can you stop snacking on those leftover goodies from a party? While putting a stop to unexplainable snack attacks is not easy, recognizing what type of snacker you are and pinpointing healthy solutions can be a more realistic approach.
One way to avoid the mid-morning nibble or second lunch is to make sure you’re incorporating enough fiber in your diet so the snacking monster doesn’t attack. If you currently aren’t able to get enough daily fiber, a supplement might be the perfect addition to your daily routine. Meta Appetite Control is just that and contains 100% natural psyllium to work naturally with your body. It is clinically proven to help you feel less hungry between meals,* so you can break up with those daily snack cravings.
To help you curb unwanted snacking, Meta Appetite Control partnered with registered dietitian nutritionist Jessica Fishman Levinson, MS, RDN, CDN, to create six different “Snack ID” profiles to help you determine what type of snacker you are, tips to keep you healthy and easy ways to incorporate Meta Appetite Control in your daily diet!
The Late Night Looter
In daylight, you’re the very picture of healthy eating and self-control. But at night? You’re practically a snacking werewolf. When the sun goes down, your urge to snack goes up, and you find yourself in the pantry, six cookies deep and covered in crumbs. Not unlike the werewolf, you spent most of the next day asking yourself what happened.
- When dinner’s done, brush your teeth! You won’t want to yuck up your pearly whites by snacking once you have cool, minty breath.
- Staying up well past dinnertime? Skip the cookies and crush your cravings by mixing a cold glass of water with Meta Appetite Control. Bonus: You’ll replenish fluids you may have lost during the day and break-up with the late night snacking.
The Mindless Muncher
Whether it’s a 12-hour streaming binge in front of your TV or just your typical 8-hour work day in front of a computer, you lose all control of your hand as it makes endless roundtrips from that bag of pretzels to your mouth. You’re not even sure if you’re hungry, but in your state of distraction, it doesn’t really matter as the calories still count.
- Use all your senses when snacking. Look at your food, smell it, touch it with your hands or your tongue, taste it on the tip of your tongue, listen to the sound it makes as you chew it. Going through the steps of really experiencing what you eat will naturally slow you down and help you stop mindless eating.
- Another tip on how to stop snacking is put down the bag of chips and head to the kitchen to mix up a Meta Appetite Control Smoothie or add two teaspoons to a cold glass of water. Take it to a distraction-free zone and sip, mindfully, until you’re done.
The On-the-Go Grazer
When you’re responsible for calendars other than your own, you don’t have time for a lunch break unless it’s on the books. Most days you find yourself running from task to task, and snacking from snack to snack. This is why most of what you eat tends to be the little bites you can pilfer from whatever leftovers – three chicken tenders here, a bite of pasta salad there -- are available. Sound familiar?
- Whether it’s a full day of meetings or carpooling kids from activity to activity, don’t push off eating until after everything is done. Even if you’re waiting to eat a big meal later in the day, have a plate of salad or a smaller serving of a healthy dish. By doing so, hunger pangs won’t get the best of you and lead to snacking on the go disasters.
- You try to wake up 20 to 30 minutes earlier to start the day with a balanced breakfast, but hitting snooze is much easier and leaves you with little to no time for cooking. Measure out two teaspoons of Meta Appetite Control Pink Lemonade and place it in a shaker bottle so you can easily fill it with cold water on the go to help you feel less hungry between meals.*
The All-Or-Nothing Nosher
You don’t always snack, but when you do, you go BIG. You don’t believe in a small popcorn at the movies, you’ve never shared a pint of ice cream, and you find the concept of “bite-sized” anything to be personally offensive. And while you know you could leave a few cookies in the bag for the next time, you’re probably not going to do that, either.
- Stop depriving yourself and start enjoying the foods you love on a regular basis so you don’t overdo it when you’re faced with them. For example, allow yourself a small scoop of ice cream once a week to avoid eating the whole pint in one sitting.
- Have a glass of cold water with Meta Appetite Control before heading to the movies or ice cream parlor to help you control your snacking when you get there.
The Stressed Out Snacker
It’s either the perspiration on your forehead or that rapidly-growing pile of candy wrappers next to your desk that lets you know you are stressing out. And when you feel stress, you’re not going to eat some of your feelings, you’re going to eat them all, probably with a side of guilt and an extra scoop of regret when you start to realize that your pants don’t fit quite as loosely as they used to fit. Luckily, there are tips for how to stop stress eating so you can avoid this.
- Stepping outside for a walk or run to get the endorphins flowing is a great solution for how to stop snacking. This also helps create more space between you and the junk food drawer.
- Make a glass of Pink Lemonade Quench Meta Appetite Control and head to a quiet room for some mindful meditation. Meta will help control your snacking between meals, while the tart lemonade flavor will wake up your senses and meditation will help you get in tune with what’s really stressing you out.
The Breakroom Binger
It might be a day old bagel, or some leftover pizza from the big meeting, or even your co-worker’s “world famous” peanut brittle that brings you to the breakroom for constant snacking, but whatever it is, you find yourself circling that room like a hungry shark in search of its next meal. Sure, you brought an apple with you today to avoid temptation, but will it hold up against a plate of brownies someone dropped off?
- Too much temptation to even enter the breakroom? Don’t do it. One of the best tips to stop snacking in this situation is to step out for a cup of coffee or just a little fresh air instead.
- Curb your daily snack cravings* by bringing your Meta Appetite Control with you to the office. Mix it with a glass of cold water so you feel full and resist the urge to see what snacks are in the breakroom.
