The folks over at beFullSolutions (previously known as FullBar) have been hard at work developing a complete line of weight loss and weight maintenance products.
First, there were the FullBars. Designed by beFullSolutions founder Dr. Michael Snyder, these bars are meant to be eaten before a meal to keep you feeling full so that you’ll eat less. The secret in the FullBar bar is not some wacky laboratory-produced additive, but rather a combination of puffed rice and fiber-rich ingredients, which are meant to mimic the benefits of weight loss surgery without the need for needles or post-op care.
FullBars come in the following flavors: Cranberry Almond, Caramel Apple Crisp Cocoa Chip, Peanut Butter and Crunch Berry Bliss.
But recently, they have added to their selection of products. Meant to have the same effects as the original FullBar, namely to help you fill up the top portions of the stomach so that at mealtimes less food is required to feel full, thus promoting portion control and weight management.
Here is a sneak peek look at the new products by beFullSolutions.
FullBites: These crunchy, savory, chip-like snacks are available in three flavors: Savory BBQ, Tangy Cheddar and Sour Cream & Onion. Each package contains about 150 calories, six grams of fat, five grams of fiber and eight grams of protein.
DietsInReview.com’s grade: We were a big fan of the Savory BBQ. It had a great combination of sweet and salty that made us feel like we were eating barbecued potato chips, minus the grease and orange fingers.
AquaFull: A powdered-mix that gets combined with water to give you a metabolism boost as well as provide you with a mini slug of antioxidants and fiber. Aquafulls come in three flavors: Zesty Lemon Tea, Berry Bliss and Pomegranate Orange. They are meant to be used as a quick defense against resisting a high calorie drink or snack. One pouch contains 20 calories and features green tea extract, gymnema sylvestre and it is sweetened with sucralose.
DietsInReview.com’s grade: Tasted refreshing and sweet, but since it does contain green tea extract, limit your caffeine intake before or after drinking an AquaFull.
TrufFulls: These brand new, protein-rich chocolate indulgences are designed to address key “pivot points” throughout the day when sugar cravings begin to rear their head. Flavors include Rich and Chewy Chocolate Mint and Creamy Chocolate Caramel. Each TrufFull packet contains two mini bars and clocks in at 120 calories (total), three grams of fat, five grams of fiber and eight grams of protein.
DietsInReview.com’s grade: By far and away the best FullBar creation in our eyes (and stomachs). They tasted decadent and left no funky aftertaste like some diet-friendly chocolate can, thanks in part to its lack of sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols tend to leave a funny taste in your mouth and produce gastrointestinal discomfort.
All of the products are sold nationwide at GNC, Walmart, CVS, Kroger, Costco and other outlets. They can also be purchased online from the beFullSolutions website.
If you order or purchase any products by beFullSolutions, be sure to read over the mini booklet, “Why Diets Don’t Work,” which accompanies the FullBar Combination packs. It’s an incredibly practical and insightful 80-page guide written by Dr. Michael Snyder. His six health rules to live by in addition to his realistic strategies for exercise and navigating yourself through a food-filled culture are instructive and down-to-earth. It’s a great read and packed with useful information.
