Most of you have watched over the past year as I’ve lost a signifigant amount of weight. I’ve gone from a size 16 to a size 4. And the journey has been utterly amazing. There have been ups and downs, moments of triumph and moments of weakness. But at the end of they day I’ve been able to reach my weight loss goals.
But now that I’m where I’ve longed to be, maintaiance has started and for me, it’s honestly harder than the losing weight was. You see, when I was losing, I was following a strict eating plan. I didn’t eat the same meals as my family and everything I put in my mouth was thought out ahead of time. But now that I’m back to life in the real world, as I like to say, sometimes I need a little help. Because sometimes I get hungry. And my will power falters. And I’m left looking at a food that I should enjoy in moderation and wanting to consume the entire thing! So, what’s a now fit mom to do in those moments? Well, thankfully for me, I’ve found full core™ Natural Appetite Control drink!
Let me tell you a little more about this drink and why, for me, it’s a great tool in my quest for a healthy lifestyle! First, the basics (because that is always a good place to start, right?).
full core™ is a refreshing and great tasting (lemon-lime flavor), naturally sweetened (Stevia Reb A), lightly carbonated drink designed to take the edge off your hunger! Enhanced with 40% of your recommended daily value of fiber (10 grams soluble fiber) plus15 vitamins and minerals, at only 25 calories per 12 ounce can, full core™ is your natural appetite control solution to promote digestive health.
Sounds good right? But how does it taste and how does it work and are there any side effects and the list of questions is endless. You all know that I am SUPER CAREFUL about what I put in my body. I don’t like stimulants. I don’t like unnatural chemicals. And often appetite supressing drinks can have all of those things in them! But not full core™! So, I decided to do a little experiment and try out full core™ to see how my body responded, how my hunger reacted and how I felt after using the drink.
I started by going to the full core™ website to purchase my drinks. Keep in mind that full core™ used to only be available in weight loss clinics but due to popular demand, the doctors who created it decided to offer it for purchase online.
I went to the full core™ website and did a little reasearch to find out more about the product. I really like that the drink contained no sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no sodium, no caffeine, no taurine, no preservatives, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no soy and is gluten-free! So, as far as being in line with my healthy lifestyle we were on track. I also enjoyed the bright colors and the look of the cans. They were easily distinguishable and not easily confused with other brands.
I added a four pack to my cart at an amazingly reasonable price and was able to quickly and easily check out. Free shipping was being offered with my order and I really liked that! I hate when I find a product that I really want but the shipping is almost more than the product, don’t you? I quicky and easily created an account and entered my billing and shipping information, which I was able to save for future purchases. Then I added my full core™ to my cart and submitted my order. Within seconds, confirmation had been emailed to me and the next day I received notification that my full core™ shipment was on it’s way!
My full core™ arrived a few days later and I was impressed with the quick shipping and customer service! The drink arrived in a four pack and the package was definately inspiring! By showing a fit abdomen with a tape measure around it, even the visuals were able to remind me what I was working for! And the individual cans were super cute! I know that may sound silly to some but if I’m going to be seen toting it to the gym, it better be in a package that gets people’s attention!
But would I be impressed with the taste? I followed the recommended instructions and drank my full core™ 30 minutes before my biggest meal of the day, which just happens to be dinner.
The taste was amazing! I really am a fan of the lemon-lime flavor in general and it felt like I was getting to drink a soft drink with the carbonation. I poured it over ice and it really was a nice treat for a hot summer afternoon! I was curious if I would feel jittery after drinking it but I did not at all! And when dinnertime arrived, I was not starving as I usually am. I was able to regulate my portions, eat healthy amounts and feel full! There was not the temptation to go back for seconds or have dessert and for me, that was a battle won in itself!
But what was even better was that full core™ made me feel great! I’m pretty sure it was all the vitamins that are included in the drink but I noticed an increase in energy (not jittery energy but just good energy) and was able to really get in a good workout after dinner! I think this was aided by the fact that I didn’t feel so full from over eating!
I look forward to continuing to use full core™ as a part of my weight maintainance regimen and think I’m going to see amazing results with it! With it’s all natural ingredients, vitamins and great taste, it’s a fantastic way to help control my eating and feel great about myself!
