Through my partnership with Fit Approach, I was given the opportunity to sample and review this product, the opinions are my own.
Admittedly, I was a little leery of trying these at first. I started taking one after lunch and it actually helped curb my afternoon sweet cravings. For some reason, I got into a habit of having something sweet after lunch and it stuck which led me into wanting more and more and then feeling crummy the rest of the day.
So how does it work?
DUO-SENSORY TASTE SYSTEM™
MealEnders’ active-taste formula rewards and resets your taste buds, distracting you from the temptation to overindulge. First the delicious Reward Layer treats you to the sweet taste of dessert – a signal we typically associate with the end of a meal. Then the Inner Core’s Active-Taste Layer releases a proprietary blend of gentle, cool tingling sensations on the tongue, which engage the trigeminal nerve, distracting your mind from the urge to continue overeating. You can feel your MealEnder go to work instantly.
ENGAGES BRAIN + BODY
The fifth cranial nerve; responsible for sensation in the face and certain motor functions such as biting and chewing. It sends sensory information from the face and body to the brain for processing. Chemicals from foods stimulate the trigeminal nerve endings in the mouth. Together with taste (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami), and smell, the trigeminal nerve contributes to the overall flavor of foods. Trigeminal nerve endings in the oral cavity and tongue are stimulated by pungent foods such as chili pepper or peppermint resulting in the sensation of hot, cool or tingle.
A feeling or condition of being full and/or satisfied after eating food.
Unlike other diets or diet aids that focus solely on your stomach, MealEnders cue the cessation of eating by targeting the mind’s attention and the body’s reaction to sensations. By engaging your trigeminal nerve, MealEnders keep your mind occupied for up to 20 minutes (the Overeating Zone), giving your natural satiety process time to kick in and catch up. When the MealEnder experience dissipates, your body’s natural signaling process of satiation will have begun.
My favorite is the Cinnamon. It starts off sweet, then a little bit of heat at the end. Sort of like an extra special after dinner mint.
Meal Enders isn’t a magic weight loss pill. But it does help keep those sweets cravings at bay after a meal.
I’m at a point where I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but I still have about 40 more pounds I would like to lose. Meal Enders lozenges will help get me there! Since I have been using these in the afternoon, I have a small snack later in the afternoon that’s either sliced fruit, sliced vegetables or hard boiled eggs instead of searching for chocolate or anything else sweet I can get my hands on.
Continuing to snack or eat more of your meal during the 20-minute Overeating Zone may seem insignificant, but those extra calories add up(1)! The average person consumes more than 1,000 unnecessary calories every day(2). Cutting 500 calories from your daily diet can result in losing one pound per week
