Underway and Smart for Life Review ~ Helping to Lose Weight! + Discount code

I never had weight issues until around 2004 (this was 3 years AFTER having my 2nd child).  I'm not really sure what happened that year.  I know money was tight, and I was eating a lot of noodles.  I typically eat a lot of noodles though.  It could have also been when my thyroid started acting up.  I gained about 10 pounds, which for me was a lot.  Now in 2010, I'd really like to lose 15 - 20 pounds.  Now, I'm actually not overweight, I'm right where I should be for my height.  However, I have always been underweight ...  If I was up to average and it was evenly distributed, I wouldn't care, but it is all in my belly.  I can't stand it!  I've been trying to watch what I eat and exercise.  Whenever I get a chance to review something that helps me out, I jump at the chance!

underWay Appetite Suppressant Supplement - 6 Pack Sample Pack (2 Grape, 2 Orange, 2 Acai-Pomegranate)I was recently able to participate in a Campaign through Mom Central for Underway and Smart for Life.  Now with the help of innovative products from underWAY and Smart for Life, we may finally achieve those ever-elusive weight loss goals that most moms seem to have (and women in general!). 

The underWAY supplement drink, infused with a special HeroFiber and heart-healthy vitamins, works naturally to suppress your appetite and quench your thirst.  underWAY curbs your hunger two ways.  Its special formulation not only takes longer for the stomach to absorb, it also slows the absorption of what's already there, making you feel fuller, longer.  What's more, its unique ingredients stimulate your stomach, telling your brain you've consumed more calories that you really have which, with underWAY, is almost zero!  It contains no preservatives, sodium or caffeine, with only 10 calories and 2 grams of carbs per 8 oz. serving.  HeroFiber, a soluble dietary fiber, helps maintain normal levels of cholesterol, glucose and insulin that are already in the normal range.

The underWAY™ appetite suppressant supplement drink can be combined with any weight loss programand/or exercise program. Stop looking for snacks – Instead Drink underWAY™!

My Thoughts ~ The Underway drink is actually really good.  I was sent the Grape and the Acai-Pomegranite to try out.  First, I checked out the nutritional information and was glad to see that it contained some B-12 in it, I lack in vitamin B, so love when I can get some.   It also has some much needed fiber in it!  I enjoyed both flavors a lot.  

I took one to drink on the way to working at a Tigers baseball game yesterday.  If the games are busy, it is really hard to find the time to take a break to eat something.  Since we are near food at all times, it is really hard not to want to eat!  The Underway drink totally took away my hunger.  It was pretty cool!  

I also tend to get hungry around 10 or 11 at night.  I'm more of a night person, but have heard eating late is bad for you.  The Underway takes away those night cravings!  This product is really cool.

Smart for Life all natural, 60% organic products offer great snacking on-the-go, containing necessary nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids and HeroFiber, with zero trans fat and making you feel fuller, quicker.  Adopting a new 7-meals-per-day schedule featuring 6 cookies or products plus a balanced dinner allows your body to maintain steady blood sugar and glucose levels, and to burn more fat for a longer portion of the day.  For variety, Smart for Life also offers soups, shakes, bagels, cereals, cupcakes and more.

My thoughts ~ I was sent a variety of the products from the Smart for Life line of foods, and I had a really good time sampling them all.   Honestly, I was not sent enough to actually see if weight loss would occur from these items.  I have heard this is a great program.  It basically helps you keep calories low, so I can see it actually working.  I will try to cover everything I was sent and my thoughts on the taste.  My daughter, my Dad & my brother also tried a couple of the products, so I will give you there thoughts as well.

  New Smart for Life Cupcake Diet

Chocolate Mountain Cupcakes
 Carrot Sunshine Cupcakes
These were suprisingly good.  My daughter, dad and brother actually tried them first.  I'm super funny about food, lol.  I personally liked the Carrot the best which shocked me to know end.  That is not something I'd like.  The cupcakes don't have much flavor which is a good thing when it comes to diet food in my opinion.  With the carrot, you can smell the cinnamon on it and you can taste the frosting the most.  It is super yummy though!  I could probably do an entire diet on those, lol.  I didn't care as much for the Chocolate Mountain Cupcakes but my daughters LOVED them!  My youngest liked these best for the reason I didn't.  They have a bit of a granola texture to the frosting.  If it wasn't for that, I'd have liked them.  My dad & brother both said they liked the cupcakes for diet reasons :)  Everyone agreed these are totally doable when it comes to "health/diet" food.

Momma’s Chicken Noodle Soup

Chocolate Berry Cereal Cup 
I tried the Chocolate Berry Cereal cup and it was ok.  I don't eat milk with my cereal, so I think if I liked milk it would have been better.  I thought it would be like Grape Nuts, and it was not like that.  I ended up giving most of it to my dad to eat. He really liked it a lot!  He also was the one that ate the soup.  He ate the entire thing, but said it was kind of weird.  He said, it didn't have much of a taste.   Both products, are definately something I'd recommend trying out if you are doing this diet plan.   They aren't terrible, and it will give you some variety.  There are other flavors available in the lines as well for you.

Smart Crunch is the easy take-along that you can pop in your mouth when you’re on the go. It contains SASSON Technology™ (Smart Appetite Suppressing Sustained Organic Nutrition) and HeroFiber™ which suppresses your appetite. Just one gram of HeroFiber™ contains the benefits found in nine grams of ordinary fiber.
I really liked the Smart Crunch a lot.  It is great for the on go, easty to eat & tastes good.  Highly recomend adding the Smart Crunch into your diet plan.
I was also sent a bagel to try, think of Melba toast and a shake.  The shake was not bad at all.  
The Smart for Life program is great if you are trying to lose weight.  They basically do all the work for you, just follow their guide.  Of course, I highly recommend adding exercise as well to this diet plan.  Plus I'd check with your doctor first!  They offer several plans or you can purchase items on your own.  It seems a bit pricey, but if you have tried other things and they aren't working, definately a way to go!  You can also purchase the underWAY products and the Smart For Life 21-Day Weight Management Kit - Diet Cookies on Amazon.
I also wanted to let you know about a recent study done at the Boca Raton Smart for Life Weight Management Center. Out of 46 subjects that visited and used a portion-controlled, protein-rich, low fat cookie with unique fiber technology, all subjects lost weight with the average being 13.1 pounds in 35 days.  Five subjects lost over 20 pounds in 35 days and 20 subjects lost over 15 pounds in the first 35 days.  The 46 participants lost a total of 601 pounds with one patient losing 38.7 pounds in 35 days.
