I've been on a bit of a health mission, trying to eat healthy food and exercising regularly (even if it's only 10 minutes with Vicky's 7 Day Slim). With my holiday fast approaching I felt I needed a bit of a hand and was quite lucky to have a box of Skinny Sprinkles land on my door step.
Everyone knows there's no such thing as a quick fix, including Skinny Sprinkles. It's not advertised as a meal replacement, a miracle drink or an instant solution to weight
The box suggests having a Skinny Sprinkle drink about 15-30minutes before every meal. Unfortunately I don't have the time before every meal I found it hard to stick to this and was worried the Skinny Sprinkles weren't going to work for me. Instead I tried it my own way...
The part of the day that I find the biggest struggle is around half 3. I've just finished teaching and running around like a headless chicken all day, my energy is taking a bit of a dip, it's still a couple of hours until dinner time. I just want a can of diet coke and chocolate biscuit! My cravings kick in and I'm tempted to snack. I found if I had a Skinny Sprinkles drink I was able to banish the cravings, boost my energy, power on to dinner time AND eat a smaller portion.
How it all works is explained quite clearly on the box but it's basically a drink mix which helps you feel full, reduces appetite and reduces tiredness. The stomach treats the gel like drink as food and 'delays gastric emptying'.
When I first tried the Skinny Sprinkles I wasn't too impressed by the 'strawberry smoothie drink'. From the description I was expecting something along the lines of a Nesquik tasting one or even a Strawberry Ribena drink after looking at the consistency. It's not a thick drink which I think is good, but I do find it a bit of a 'grin and bare it' sort of drink. It's not the worst drink out there!
I'm going to keep going with 1 Skinny Sprinkle a day and hopefully by the end of the box I'll have kicked my end of work cravings to the curb!
Have you tried Skinny Sprinkles or anything similar to improve your eating habits?
