Think about all the times you reach the bottom of a bag of tasty chips, and scold yourself for being so undisciplined.
Or, you start devouring cookies and ice cream when you’ve had a stressful day at work. Before you tear into the next bag of goodies or dip into a new pint of chocolate chocolate chip, take this clever, quick Meta Snack ID Quiz on POPSUGAR, created by Meta Appetite Control and Jessica Fishman Levinson, registered dietitian and nutritionist.
The quiz will tell you which of six snacker profiles fits you best, from Break-Room Binger and On-The-Go Grazer to Late-Night Looter and All-Or-Nothing Nosher. It also will offer sensible tips, no matter which profile reflects your snacking style, so you can make progress in leading a healthy lifestyle.
I’m a Stressed-Out Snacker, the quiz revealed. “When you feel stress, you don’t just eat some of your feelings — you eat them all,” my Snack ID explained. “Stepping outside for a walk or going for a run to get the endorphins flowing is a great solution. This also helps create more physical space between you and the junk food drawer.” I was advised.
Besides reducing stressors that can lead to impulsive snacking, nutritionist Jessica recommends adding Meta Appetite Control, from Metamucil, to your daily diet as part of a healthy lifestyle. Made from 100% natural psyllium fiber, the powder comes in tasty Orange Zest and Pink Lemonade Quench and is added to cold drinks, such as sparkling water or iced tea, to help curb cravings between meals.* It can be consumed up to three times a day with meals, and is sugar and gluten free.
An unflavored version can be added to smoothies. Your cravings are controlled when the natural fiber forms a gel in your digestive system, which slows down absorption and digestion and helps give you a “full” sensation and acts as an appetite suppressant.
