Happy New Years Eve!! The holiday season always seems to go by so fast! There's always so much to do, so many parties to attend, gifts to wrap, lots of baking to be done, and LOTS of eating to be had. Maybe the holiday season doesn't really go that fast, but it just passes while I am in a food coma? Anyone else feel that way?
This holiday season I got to test out MealEnders! MealEnders are lozenges that help curb over eating. There are two layers to MealEnders lozenges- the outside layer is the "dessert layer," this layer tastes sweet, which helps signal the brain that the meal is over. Then there is a second inner layer, which triggers a cooling sensation that stimulates the trigeminal nerve, which helps you feel satiated. The two layers are supposed to work together to help you from giving into your cravings.
I put MealEnders to the test not once, but twice- at Thanksgiving and Christmas. The holidays are times when most people tend to overeat and crave sweets. I was with family and friends for both occasions and had them test out MealEnders to see what they thought.
Each person tried one either after eating dinner or after having a small piece of dessert. Everyone really liked the flavors, but cinnamon and chocolate mint seemed to be the favorites. The lozenges definitely worked as they said they would- a sweet outer coating then the inner layer which made your tongue tingle a bit, but it wasn't anything drastic. All together MealEnders got a 9/10 rating from everyone. The one drawback that people mentioned was having to pop a lozenge after every meal, which could get expensive.
What everyone did like most of all, besides the flavor, was the nutrition facts. Each MealEnders is gluten free, free from high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners, there are no herbs or drugs, and they are kosher. Each lozenge is only 15 calories and contains 0 grams fat, 2 grams sugar, and 2 grams carbs, awesome macros right?!
