It’s a sad day here in my household. With both me and my husband’s favorite football teams (the Ravens and the Eagles) out of the playoffs – we are really just watching football today because it will be the last game we will see our teams play in for several months. Looking at the positive side of things – we will now have no reason to sit in front of the TV for a few hours on Sunday! (Yay for more time for more miles!) I am very happy about this, Jimmy – not so much.
Before our football season came to an official end – I had to step up my culinary skills with one final football Sunday meal. See the wonderful chili I made! Ok, so maybe the picture does not do it justice… but chili really isn’t the most exciting thing to photograph. And yes, that is a big crock-pot of chili!
Now the problem for Jimmy is that he LOVES my chili. I think it’s pretty good; but he goes absolutely nuts over it. I use lots of veggies, freshly frozen tomatoes from my garden this past summer, and some dehydrated jalapenos and hot peppers that I grew. Lots of quality ingredients in my chili. Jimmy will stuff himself with multiple bowls, lay on the couch, and then complain how it’s my fault that I am such a good cook and that is why he overeats. Well friends, today will be different. Today, Jimmy is using MealEnders. After his initial overstuffed bowl of chili is complete, he can have his choice of chocolate mint, citrus, cinnamon, or mocha MealEnders. MealEnders will help curb his appetite and fend off that round two bowl of chili.
MealEnders? Do explain….
MealEnders Signaling Lozenges are a first-of-its-kind weight management tool designed to curb overeating and teach portion control using a combination of behavioral psychology and sensory science. Free of stimulants or other harmful “diet” ingredients, MealEnders catalyze behavioral change by retraining the mind to stop eating with the eyes.
MealEnders consist of two components: a sweet, outer reward layer and a cooling/tingling inner core. The outer layer provides a measured dose of “dessert” associated with the end of a meal, while the inner core engages the trigeminal nerve (the nerve that senses “taste”) with long-lasting cooling/tingling sensations that cleanse the palate.
The concept is very simple. You are eating, you finish your plate, you want more. (Story. Of. My. Life.) Meal Enders step in and take that second helping out of the equation. You finish your plate, you want more, you pop in a Meal Enders. We have all read the literature on scientific studies that it takes the brain 20 minutes to register that you are actually full. Also, we all know that our stomach should only be digesting portions of food that are the size of a fist. Meal Enders takes these two concepts and puts things into an actionable plan. While you are sucking on your Meal Enders (after your first plate) your brain is registering that you don’t really need that second helping of lasagna. Meal Enders basically helps you pump the breaks on round two of shoveling food in your mouth.
