It's the beginning of a New Year and if you're like me, your email inbox is inundated with subject lines about "New Year's Resolutions", "Getting Back on Track", etc. etc. etc.
But for me, January 1 is just another day on the calendar. Controlling my hunger is something I struggle with 365 days a year and I don't need the beginning of a New Year to remind me that I need to get it under control (#thestruggleisreal).
I have a problem with "mindless" eating and snacking between meals, even when I'm not really hungry or in times of high stress or even when I'm bored. Even emotional eating sometimes. And even though I don't necessarily eat "bad" food (like 3 bags of chips and a pint of ice cream in one sitting), I do eat excessive and unnecessary calories than I need to stay at my ideal weight.
Daily recipe creation and testing doesn't help either 🙁
That's why I was so intrigued when I learned about the natural and safe dietary supplement - LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula.
When I read the words "dietary supplement", it immediately brought me back to the days of the over-the-counter diet pills that contained caffeine, made you jittery and made you feel like your heart was about to jump out of your chest.
Then I cringed when I thought of what the ingredient list might look like...fillers, artificial colors and warning labels. And I definitely wasn't going to go there.
But - I was pleasantly surprised after researching the LOVIDIA supplement and that's why I want to share it with you today.
One of the first things I looked at when reviewing information about the LOVIDIA product (immediately after reviewing the ingredient list) is their philosophy and mission statement regarding the supplement. I was so relieved to discover that they held the same line of thinking that I did on the subject of taking weight loss aids and/or supplements:
THERE ARE NO MAGIC PILLS FOR LOSING WEIGHT.
That's exactly what LOVIDIA explains on their website and in their product material and that, in my opinion, is excellent advice. They do not claim that by taking their supplements, you will magically lose weight.
Instead, they show you how you can control your hunger (and thus lose weight by consuming fewer calories) with the LOVIDIA appetite suppressant and by being "Food Smart", but also what else you need to do to successfully make weight loss happen:
- control hunger (via science and Lovidia)
- nutrition (via healthy food choices)
What Makes LOVIDIA Different?
There may be other hunger control or appetite suppressants on the market, but what makes LOVIDIA different and one that I would personally use and support?
It's because it contains a natural blend of ingredients like stevia leaf extract, L-glutamine, L-leucine, lysine, hydrochloride and pomegranate fruit extract. It's also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO and non-caloric. These are things that are important to me as I'm "that person" who reads labels on ~everything~.
And, the ingredients in LOVIDIA have been clinically tested in multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled studies and have been shown to be both safe and effective.
How Does LOVIDIA Work?
Now let's talk about the "science" behind LOVIDIA.
First, LOVIDIA is not a drug and it doesn't come with a long list of unpleasant and possibly dangerous side effects that are normally found in similar products like caffeine (and other stimulants) fat blockers or diuretics. The ingredients used in LOVIDIA's proprietary hunger-control formula contain only natural GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) ingredients which will not cause jitters or other unpleasant side effects typically associated with weight-loss products.
Secondly, LOVIDIA is a patented formula that uses Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM) to reduce hunger...aka "Control Hunger with Science".
In the simplest terms, LOVIDIA helps you stay satisfied with fewer calories, making you feel as though you've eaten more than you have. This allows you to reduce the amount of food you eat without feeling hungry. When you can cut calories without feeling hungry, it's easier to lose weight.
And, here's a really short video that explains it very simply:
How Do I Use LOVIDA?
It's really easy. Just take one LOVIDIA tablet 1-2 hours (with a full glass of filtered/purified water) before a meal or when you feel hunger cravings are at their strongest as an effective appetite suppressant.
Using LOVIDIA is very flexible too. You can determine the best time to take LOVIDIA based on your current eating patterns. For example, some people eat a light breakfast, a small lunch, a large dinner, and a late-night snack. For this eating pattern, LOVIDIA would recommend taking a supplement in the late afternoon, before dinner.
For me, my biggest meal of the day is typically lunch, so I took mine before my lunch meal.
Another example is if you had a big event, company-sponsored lunch, or occasion when you knew you would be eating an out of the ordinary meal for lunch, you would want to take LOVIDIA in the morning, before the meal.
You can use it as a tool for support prior to your typical times of cravings or before larger meals or events.
