I’m a sponsored Meta Influencer, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
With the New Year, I have made a resolution and a promise to myself to start making my health a priority. I have partnered with Metamucil for this sponsored post to share my story and introduce Meta Appetite Control and how it is helping me reach my goals.
In 2015, I was pregnant for most of the year and in January of 2016 I had my baby. Therefore, the entire year was dedicated to her and learning how to be a new mom.
Now that my babe is almost not a baby anymore and turning one-year-old, I am able to breathe a little bit and start to focus on myself. Every mom is different, but it has taken me a little more time than anticipated to lose the baby weight. So that is definitely my focus for 2017.
It is not just the baby weight that I want to get rid of, but I also want to get healthy again. I was just diagnosed with pregnancy induced Gerd, aka Acid Reflux. I had it really bad during the last two months and with all that acid, I have also been diagnosed with stomach ulcers. Both of those ailments can also be attributed to weight and not getting enough fiber.
So what is a girl to do? Obviously, I need to add more fiber in my diet (avoid these 4 diet mistakes). I also just found out that I am a “Mindless Muncher.” That makes sense. I discovered this with a new online quiz from PopSugar “What type of Snacker are you.”
As a new mom, it is so easy to just grab a snack here or there. When my daughter takes a nap, I have to start working and I usually grab a snack so I can eat uninterrupted. Do I need a snack each time I reach for one? Probably not.
I have started making healthy smoothies in the morning for my pick-me-up and get me started for the day. I just add my scoop of Meta Appetite Control to my smoothie and I am good for the next few hours. Meta Appetite Control is clinically proven to help you feel less hungry between meals.* It is helping me to “break up” with my daily snack cravings and help me to feel less hungry between meals.* Now I can stick to healthy options for my main meals.
Meta Appetite Control is a fiber supplement from the makers of Metamucil. It has 100% natural psyllium fiber which thickens and forms a gel in your digestive system, slowing absorption and digestion, which aids in the sensation of fullness.
There are two flavors of Meta Appetite Control to choose from; Orange Zest, Lemonade Quench or they also have an unflavored smoothie enhancer option.
Here is my recipe for my morning healthy smoothie. It really gets me started for a good and healthy day.
- 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (any flavor you prefer. I love honey or vanilla)
- 2 teaspoons Orange Zest Meta Appetite Control
- 1/3 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/2 large ripe banana (or other fruits of your choice)
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- Handful spinach (optional)
- 5 - 6 cubes of ice
- Peel banana and cut into chunks. Put into blender and add ice as well the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth.
