Maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging because we tend to omit the foods we enjoy. Human beings do not like being deprived of things and that is why diets are short-term solutions to long-term problems. Extend products allow you to enjoy decadent tastes that you crave, with fewer calories, and that digest slowly so you are satisfied for a long period of time.

Crunchy snack lover alert! Just imagine digging into a bag of Extend Crisps, whether it be the Zesty Ranch, Italian Herb, Honey BBQ, White Cheddar or Cinnamon and not feeling guilty! Each single serving bag has about 120 calories, similar to potato chips, however there is a BIG difference. After eating Extend Crisps you will not need or want to eat another bag right away. In fact, you won’t be hungry for quite a while.

The uncooked cornstarch will help to suppress your appetite since it slows down the digestion of the particular food it’s in. Potato chips simply encourage your appetite because of the quick digesting carbohydrates and you will want to eat a bigger bag right away. There lies the reason for the bad carbohydrate reputation: the quicker you digest the food the more carbohydrates you will crave – there’s your vicious overconsumption of carbohydrates cycle.

Similarly, for sweet lovers, there are Extend Drizzles in Chocolate Dream and Caramel Bliss. These snacks are designed to provide pleasure without the guilt. They will also encourage you not to overeat. Extend has shakes in Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry that are wonderful to start or end your day. Liquid tends to fill your stomach and the Extend Shakes further satisfy your appetite with the uncooked cornstarch.

Of course, there are many flavors of Extend bars available that have the same lasting effect: Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch bar or the Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut, Mixed Berry or Apple Cinnamon bar.

Don’t deprive yourself to get the results you want. With Extend products, studies show people have a 21% reduced calorie intake. Consider Extend Products for satiety and great taste. See for yourself, it works!

NOTE: Consult your doctor first to make sure my recommendations fit your special health needs.
