If I could describe myself in two words, it would definitely be always hungry. I have always struggled with appetite control. I snack constantly throughout the day and I tend to overdo portion sizes, which has caused my weight to constantly fluctuate.
When I started working at The Vitamin Shoppe, I was able to get familiar with so many appetite-curbing options. One product that immediately stuck out to me was Healthy Delights Naturals Appetite Control Soft Chews. I didn’t want something difficult to add to my routine, so these chews sounded appealing.
So, how does appetite control work?
Adding a supplement to your routine for appetite control sounds intimidating at first. The bag instructed me to eat a chew about a half hour before every meal in order for it to be effective. I was worried about how I was going to bring the entire bag with me everywhere I went, but then I saw that each soft chew comes individually wrapped in the bag, so it’s easy to take them with you on-the-go.
My favorite part about the chews: the acai berry flavor! The chews tasted like a sweet treat, making them something I actually looked forward to taking.
Giving it a go
Like any new addition to a diet, it took a few days for me to notice a difference. I found that by the third day of popping chews, I finally noticed something. Though I still craved snacks (after all, that’s a hard habit to break), I felt fuller faster.
I also found my meal portion size went down. Usually I would eat a salad at lunch every day, but would be starving within the next hour. Once the chews started taking effect, I was able to feel fuller longer.
My appetite finally had structure, and it made all the difference for me. I cut down on junk food, and I didn’t feel bloated due to overeating at meals.
These soft chews helped me gain control of my hunger, and I actually feel like I know what it is to feel full now. It has made such a difference in my eating habits, and I honestly don’t want to turn back.
I highly recommend trying these if you have even the slightest difficulty in controlling your appetite, because they helped me gain perspective on my eating habits.
