Can Meal Enders Help Prevent Overeating (Review & Giveaway to Follow)
I was recently offered the opportunity to sample Meal Enders signaling Lozenges through my participation in the Sweat Pink Ambassador program with Fit Approach. I was initially skeptical, but something about the product information inspired me to give it a try…
I admit it, I have a sweet tooth. Generally I eat healthy, but desserts and sweets are my biggest weakness. I do allow myself to indulge on occasion — moderation and enjoyment are part of the Feeling Fit lifestyle. Sometimes, my eyes (and sweet tooth) are bigger than my stomach and it is easy to overeat. There are a variety of strategies to avoid this. Meal Enders is one effective strategy for me, it is especially helpful when eating out.
As mentioned, I received complimentary samples of four flavors of Meal Enders Signaling Lozenges. Also, one lucky Feeling Fit reader will receive four bags (one each flavor) of Meal Enders (a $50 value). See the Gleam giveaway widget after my mini-review of Meal Enders. The giveaway runs 3/2 – 3/16 as part of the Spring Into Spring Giveaway Blog Hop. How does Meal Enders fit with a Spring theme? Spring is the time when we often start wearing cute, flirty styles that are a little more fitted or revealing. Meal Enders can be part of your get in shape for Spring and Summer plan!

My Experience Sampling Meal Enders
First, I will state that I do not believe in diet supplements. For the most part, I think they are ineffective and potentially dangerous. Sustainable change comes from developing healthy habits. Meal Enders is not a “diet supplement”. It does not control or suppress appetite and it does not alter your metabolism. It is a small dual-textured candy that takes 20 minutes to dissolve.
Often there is a delay between when you eat and when your brain signals satisfaction. For some people, eating too fast can trigger overeating. This can be especially true when eating out as restaurant foods are often higher in calories than food you would prepare at home and it can take a while for your brain to signal that you have had enough. Meal Enders is designed to help with that process.
The outer layer is soft and sweet so you feel like you are enjoying a taste of dessert. The inner layer is a hard candy that has a tart taste and causes a cooling and tingling sensation on the tongue. The theory is that by the time you finish the candy, your brain had time to signal satisfaction to your body. Also, if you are someone who craves sweets, the candy might meet that craving.
I used Meal Enders over the past week. I confirm when I am actually hungry, I am still hungry after the lozenge melts. However, it does minimize my sweet cravings as I actually enjoy the taste of these lozenges.
Meal Enders doesn’t offer anything magical. Weight control still requires good nutrition, appropriate portion sizes, exercise, drinking water and good sleep. I think it is a nice tool for someone who is looking to lose a few pounds to fit into their Spring and Summer fashions. It is especially useful for someone who tends to eat second helpings or desserts. Meal Enders is also helpful to help minimize snacking between healthy meals.
