Avoid Overeating by Engaging Your Brain and Body with MealEnders


logo

When I was first contacted and asked to try out MealEnders, I was hesitant.  Upon first glance I thought maybe they may have been some new product claiming to be the next magical way to help you lose weight.  Then I took a closer look.  

MealEnders are actually free of stimulants, drugs, and herbs.  They instead use both food science and behavioral psychology to help fight the urge to over indulge. MealEnders calls it the Duo-Sensory Active-Taste System– referring to the two layers that make up the lozenge. 

MealEnders Review and Giveaway

The first layer of the lozenge is made up of the “Reward Layer” which is candy-like and dessert tasting in nature, signaling to your brain that it is the end of the meal.  

I have been using this behavioral approach for a while now- at the end of my dinner meal I always have a small piece of dark chocolate.  The small piece is enough to satisfy my sweet craving and since it is a habit, it also signals to my brain that I am done eating.  The behavioral aspect of this is what actually attracted me to try it in the first place, since it is something I already practice.  

The second layer is made up of the “Inner Core’s Active-Taste Layer” which releases a cool tingling sensation.  I would attribute it to almost a menthol-like flavor but it’s kind of hard to describe.  This layer engages the trigeminal nerve which distracts you from the urge to eat, essentially, cleansing your palate.

If you have ever heard the idea that it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain it’s full, it’s true! When you know you’ve eaten enough (even if you don’t feel full) you can enjoy a MealEnder which gives you a taste of dessert and then engages the trigeminal nerve, distracting your tastebuds.  By the time it’s done working, 20 minutes have gone by and allowed enough time to send a signal to your brain that you’re full! Kinda cool, right?

I have been trying out MealEnders of the last several weeks and while I don’t use one after every meal, I have found that they have come in handy especially when I am bored during the day and find myself mindlessly grazing.  I can honestly say that they work and have kept me from a second serving when I know I don’t need it.  

 

MealEnders Review and Giveaway

MealEnders come in four flavors: Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon, Citrus and Mocha. They are Kosher and free of both gluten and high fructose syrup, have 15 calories per piece and contain only 2 grams of sugar.  

I have tried each of the flavors and was expecting to love mocha the most but surprisingly my two favorite are the cinnamon and the citrus.  I think it is because those two flavors blend best with the cooling sensation that follows- that is just my opinion though. :) 

Overall, I think that MealEnders are a great tool to incorporate into a mindful eating practice as most of the time we aren’t aware we are too full until we’ve had one too many bites.  MealEnders are also a great way to stay on track with your goals as they utilize both food science and behavioral psychology to help avoid overeating and aid in portion control! 

The exciting news is that MealEnders has agreed to give away not one but three, 3 month bundles (an $89.95 value) to my readers so you can try them out and see for yourselves!  To enter, please use the rafflecopter below.  Giveaway ends on 1/15 at 11:59pm.  Winners will be randomly chosen an notified by email.  Good luck :)

These would totally be up my alley. I am the same way, I finish off my meals with a square of dark chocolate as well to cleanse the palate :)

    That's awesome! I always look forward to my square after dinner though I usually have to hide while enjoying it so the kids don't try to take a bite ;)

    I have found it helpful to suck on one after lunch since that is when I am most likely to snack too!

    From what I can read on your blog you're doing a great job through sheer will power! :) What I love about MealEnders is that it isn't about restrictive eating or dieting they just simply help with overeating. The guy who created MealEnders shares his own struggle with food and what lead him to creating them. Kinda cool to read!

I love the tip to wait 20 min for the brain and stomach to communicate!

    It really is a great tip- my mom has always told me that and it's true! Sometimes we continue to eat before we realize we are full!

So sad I missed this giveaway! But I'm glad you posted this review b/c I was looking into trying these. I don't want to take any magic pills, but anything I can do to tell my brain I'm finished when my stomach already is, I am willing to try!
