Hunger Shield

Appetite Control Drink Mix

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

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."

INGREDIENTS

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, RD

EXERCISE

The creators of Hunger Shield recommend that while you don’t need to run a marathon, you should have some consistent form of daily activity as part of a healthy lifestyle regimen. One of their suggestions is wearing a pedometer to monitor and increase your daily steps.

CONCLUSION

Hunger Shield is a natural appetite suppressant that provides an impressive amount of protein and fiber in each 40-calorie packet.

It boasts a zesty lemon and lime taste and claims to help you stick to your diet with less hunger.

It's given more credibility by the fact that it was developed by four licensed dietitians and nutritionists. Hunger Shield is natural, easy to use, and portable.

After consulting DietsInReview.com's Registered Dietitian, Mary Hartley, RD, she confirms that there is no reason not to take Hunger Shield if between-meal hunger is a problem and the probiotics are a plus.

Tried this for several weeks and it has really decreased my appetite, esp. for night snacks! Find it fresh tasting (be sure to mix well) and on top of that it is good for me. I have lost weight already! Great support for a diet plan.

I love hunger shield. I mix it with iced tea, water and diet 7-up. It has no aftertaste and gives a great lemon flavor. Make sure you pure soda in to glass or cup then add powder, it doesn't mix as well in the can. I love to drink it before I am going out where I know there will be a lot of food so I arrive a little full, or I drink it during the day when I am reading or busy doing something else in between meals. I do not think of this as a diet and I don't replace this instead of eating I use this as a tool to help me control my portions and eat healthy. Great product

Hungershield is a great product! I add it to my diet iced tea, and it makes it taste like a lemonade/tea mix. I like Hungershield because it gives me a feeling of fullness, and it lets me go longer between meals. It's also important to me that it's all natural with no artificial ingredients. I'm so happy that I found Hungershield!

Hunger Shield has helped deflect my hunger when I am in a situation in which having a healthy snack is inappropriate; for example, during a seminar, I can drink Hunger Shield the way others are drinking water. But Hunger Shield is far more than that. It's like a pleasant summer lemonade which has allowed me much more ease in hydrating for health and consuming the recommended 64 daily ounces. I love it...and I run out of it too quickly.

Hunger Shield is an incredible product that has helped me greatly. After years of drinking 2 - 3 cans of soda a day, it has helped me to discontinue soda use all together. I have not had a single drop of soda in over a month. Additionally, it has helped me to control my hunger at lunch time, making it easier to have smaller lunches.
