Kellogg's Special K Protein Products Help Satisfy Hunger & Contest (~OVER~)!

If You Feel Full, You're Less Likely to Overeat
Right around mid-October each and every year, I start thinking seriously about food and snacks (how can't I with Thanksgiving feasts and Halloween goodies)!  I wonder if I will be able to stay on track with healthy eating, when there is temptation all around me.  I also question my willpower, and hope that it is strong enough to carry me through.

Having lost 70 lbs in 9 months, in the early stages I often felt hungry even after I had eaten a full meal.  It was frustrating to hear my stomach growling, when it should have been satisfied.  I learned during that timeframe that a few things made my stomach feel fuller: drinking lots of water, snacking in between meals on healthy fruits and vegetables, and having a reasonable amount of protein at mealtime.
WIN a Special K Willpower Kit!
Includes FREE Product Coupons, not shown.
Kellogg's recently introduced Special K Protein cereal, Morning Shakes and Flatbread Sandwiches, which they believe helps satisfy hunger due to the quantity of protein in each one.  I was very skeptical about the Morning Shake when I tried it for the very first time, but I found that it really filled a void in my hunger.  Give it a few minutes to work and then: BOOM!, you're full!  

In the early stages of my weight loss, I was very successful with staving off hunger by drinking liquid yogurts and the likes instead of eating an extra meal or reaching for unhealthy snacks.  If you have a problem with feeling hungry, you may wish to try Special K Morning Shakes and see if they work for you (the chocolate is my "flavour-ite")!

CONTEST (~OVER~)

WINNER: Tom D.

Would you like to WIN a Special K Willpower kit?  It includes a box of Special K Protein cereal (and a second FREE product coupon for the same cereal), 2 Special K Morning Shakes (and a FREE product coupon for 4 more Morning Shakes), a FREE product coupon for Special K Flatbread Sandwiches, and $10 in savings from Silhouette Greek yogurt (including a buy one get one free coupon)!  Open to Canada, ends Tuesday November 12th, 2013.

  5. I always find that when I choose a healthy snack like fruits or vegetables, as soon as I eat them I feel more hungry than when I first have a snack. It's like my stomach gets a taste for some food and just screams "MORE!" at me.

  7. I love fresh fruits and vegetables but find that the cost can be too much and you can get sick of the same cheap vegetables. The calorie reduced bars are great but I have issues stopping at one. I am going to try these shakes now for sure!

  12. I'd love to try these - the biggest challenge I face is remaining full or satisfied. I often have found that it takes a large amount of food to keep the hunger away (I also run into trouble when I forget to take my pills with a large amount of food as they're suppose to be taken, then I have bad side effects). I also found yogurt and the like to help, but unfortunately it didn't stick with me and in less than 2 hours my stomach was aching for something in there.
    This was an issue for me as the hardest part of my weightloss journey was losing the desire to binge eat and change my relationship with food. Constantly eating jeopardizes that for me, so feeling full has always been an issue.
