Outsmarting Hunger with The Protein Effect
Hey guys! Did everyone have a great weekend?
I had a complete blast, as expected.
I know I really never post on the weekends anymore, but this weekend I didn’t even touch my lap top. I was in Chicago visiting a couple besties, and didn’t even take my lap top. Luckily, my iPhone served as a camera, so I still managed to catch a few memories
So. Remember that one time I posted about food drugs? I professed my addiction to ice cream, and many of you professed the same, but many others confessed to be addicted to another food group – cereal (yep, cereal, too, is its own food group.)
I can appreciate that. Remember when everyone became obsessed with peanut butter Cheerios and then (myself included) wined about finishing a box in 1.5 days? Yeah, me too. I can go through a box of cereal in New York minute.
However, I’m proud to announce that this box of cereal has been sitting in my lazy Susan for at least a week.
A week! And there’s still some left! And Shane eats it, too.
It’s not because it’s not tasty – it’s delicious. It’s because when I have a bowl, I don’t feel the need to refill that bowl an incessant amount of times to be satisfied.
It’s because it’s got protein power! 10 grams of protein per serving, to be exact.
Special K: The Protein Effect Nutritional Stats:
Bar stats (Chocolatey Chocolate:)
Throughout the week, I replaced either a bar or a shake with my usual morning or afternoon snack, and the cereal with my usual breakfast. While trying out the products I kept THREE in mind: first, did it quiet my hunger? secondly, what were the ingredients? and lastly, was it tasty? I decided I’d vlog my thought on those three factors:
How do you outsmart hunger – What’s the thought process behind your snacks?
I try to have some carbs and protein in the morning, and protein and fat in the evening. I also try to keep my snacks around 200-300ish calories.
