Many of you know that I have been working on getting fit and healthy for my family. During my weight loss journey I have learned that protein is important because it takes your body longer to metabolize which means you burn calories. They also take longer to leave your stomach making you feel full longer. This is very important for anyone trying to lose weight and one of the reasons why Special K has a new product line called Special K Protein Effect.
Special K The Protein Effect combines protein and fiber to really lay the smack down on hunger and help you feel full longer. While giving these products a try I really noticed the difference especially in the morning. As a working mom mornings are always hard for me. For one reason or another I am always running late and do not have time for breakfast. The Special K Protein Effect products really helped because they are perfect for on the go. I grabbed a Special K Protein Shake and a piece of fruit for breakfast to drink/eat in the car on the way to work. This was great because it helped me get breakfast, plus I was not starving by the time lunchtime rolled around.
The Special K Protein Meal Bars are perfect for on the go too, and made a perfect snack. They are crispy, crunchy and dipped into chocolate. I kept one in my purse for whenever I felt hungry. This helped me stay away from foods that I shouldn’t eat while I am out, and also helped satisfy my hunger until meal time.
On the weekends I have more time to sit down and eat, so I tried the Special K Protein Cereal. The Special K Protein Cereal has 10g of protein and 3g of fiber. It was crunchy with a hint a sweetness and really did taste great. Feeling satisfied longer was definitely an added bonus. This cereal will definitely be added into my breakfast rotation.
Overall, I enjoyed the Special K Protein Effect products and thought they were perfect to help ward off hunger. Of all of their protien products, I think the shake is my favorite. It tasted great and was awesome for this on the go mom!
