Appetite Control Drink Mix
Hunger Shield is a powdered drink mix that contains a unique blend of fiber, protein and probiotics to help curb appetite. It contains natural ingredients and no artificial artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors.
This beverage mix was developed by a team of four registered dietitians and nutritionists for the purpose of appetite control as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan. It contains both probiotics and prebiotics to promote optimum GI health.
To use, simply tear open the individual packet, pour it into a 16 oz. glass or bottle of cold water, shake or stir, and drink. The result is a lemon-lime flavored beverage that contains only 40 calories, 5 grams of protein, 4 grams of dietary fiber and 0 grams of sugar.
It's recommended to drink Hunger Shield 1-2 hours before meals or in place of snacks throughout the day. Optimum times of consumption include: between breakfast and lunch to reduce morning snacking; between lunch and dinner to reduce afternoon snacking; at the end of the work day to prevent getting home too hungry; and after dinner to eliminate evening snacking.
Hunger Shield creators claim it works because "appetite control makes it easier to stick to a weight loss plan."

Hunger Shield: whey protein concentrate (contains milk and soy lecithin), Fibersol, citric acid, glycine, CitriSweet brand sweetener, natural flavor, silica, probiotic blend [Lactospore (Bacillus coagulans), Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus casei] (contains milk) turmeric color, oat fiber, and flaxseed powder.
"Hunger Shield’s sweetener, CitriSweet, contains oligofructose, a carbohydrate made in a lab by combining inulin (i.e. chicory root) and other plants that stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the intestines. That is why the oligofructose and the soluble fibers in Hunger Shield are called prebiotics. CitriSweet also contains natural fructose, citrus extracts, and natural flavors. It claims to have a clean fresh taste that masks the off flavors from whey, soy, and vitamins." - Mary Hartley, RDEXERCISE
