The Cure to Overeating is Finally Here!! MealEnders & {giveaway} #sweatpink

Meal EndersWhenever people see J and I eating together they are completely blown away with the sheer amount of food I consume. Now, for the most part it’s because I’m a runner and need my calories, but sometimes I just keep eating because the food is there or because I’ve eaten so fast that I just don’t realize I’m full and end up severely overeating.  Just take a look at my Instagram feed and you’ll find no shortage of amazing foods!Turkey-Sausage-hash

Surely you’ve heard that it takes 15-20 minutes for your stomach to signal your brain that you’re full and should stop eating. Well it’s true and that’s where MealEnders come in. In the simplest way, MealEnders work by giving you a sweet treat and keeping your mouth occupied long enough for your brain to realize you’re full.
Now, here’s the science behind it. MealEnders uses what they call DUO-SENSORY TASTE SYSTEM™  the outer layer is sweet and silky, a taste that typically signals the end of the meal. The inner layer, the Inner Core’s Active-Taste Layer tingles on the tongue distracting the mind from the urge to overeat.

Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? I admit I was a little skeptical.wpid-20150222_221436.jpg

Monday these little tricksters were put to the test. I was in a mad rush all day and when I ate my dinner after my run it was no different. I practically inhaled everything in my bowl and my stomach seem to howl that it was still starving. I tried to ignore it but by the time I crawled into bed I was absolutely convinced that I would die if I didn’t get something sweet and NOW!Chocolate Mint

I ran downstairs and tore open my bag of Chocolate Mint MealEnders. I figured it would at least satisfy the sweet tooth for a minute so I could figure out what I really wanted to eat…not only did it satisfy my sweet tooth- the outer layer was silky and every bit as satisfying as popping a piece of chocolate into my face. I savored it, let the candy like exterior melt over my tongue. It was soon followed by a tingling, cooling inner layer- sort of like a hard candy with bumps. By the time the lozenge had dissolved, my raging appetite had been subdued.

Now, to be completely real here, if you’re hell bent on cramming a chocolate cake down your throat or demolish an entire bag of chips these aren’t going to stop you. But if you’re really making an effort to control your eating, these could be just the thing that helps you get and stay on the right track. Meal Ender Chart

    I try to signal my body to stop eating by drinking tea after a meal, but that isn’t really ideal in the summer when it’s hot. Sometimes I’ll chew gum even though it isn’t great for me. I’d love to try Meal Enders!

  2. Laura Royal says:

    I try to drink water before meals, have a daily snack time, and try not to rush through meals so I can be mindful about what I’m eating.

    I try not to eat after 8pm…I know it should be even earlier, but sometimes you need a good snack while watching tv! haha I’ve been trying to eat slower too, to allow everything to catch up.

      You know, I’ve read/heard some evidence to dispel the idea of it being unhealthy to eat after a certain time. Of course everyone is different, but I haven’t noticed a difference in either weight loss or gain regardless of the timing of my meals.

    Tea helps me avoid over eating. It’s like having a yummy snack without the calories. It can even help bust those dessert cravings!

    • Amanda Medau says:

      Small plates are a great trick! I’ve always heard that you eat with your eyes first, so if you perceive that you’re eating a larger portion, it stands to reason your brain will engage that “full” feeling sooner

  5. Kaitlyn A. says:

    I tend to eat pretty slow, so I normally don’t overeat…unless I’m at a buffet! But I’m always hungry before I go to bed so these might do just the trick!

  6. Jenny says:

    I’m one that just eats and eats until the food on my plate is gone. And I usually end up miserable because of it! These would be great for me!

      I’ve tried to implement several strategies because I’m the kind to finish a plate too- Serving smaller portions on smaller plates and sitting with my family so we can talk about our day (which makes us eat slower)
