With the start of my Wingstop keto diet this past week, I’ve been looking for ways to overcome hunger and stop eating junk foods. It’s been so hard, I admit, but I have found a resolution to my hunger, and it doesn’t include eating. It’s called Special K2O Protein Water Mix.
Basically, this mix is just a packet of powder that you pour into your bottle of water, shake to mix, and drink! It contains only 30 calories, no fat, 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, and other essential vitamins. This mix has 20% of your recommended fiber daily value, and 10% of your recommended protein daily value, based on a 2,000 calorie diet. For those of us on a diet, who are consuming less than 2,000 calories per day, we are getting more fiber and protein out of this water mix. The fiber and protein are what makes you feel full and overcome your hunger.
It’s easy to make your own protein water, no matter where you are. These packets of mix fit easily into a purse, and all you need is a 16.9-ounce bottle of water to mix it with. I take several packets with me wherever I go because I never know when I’m going to feel hungry, especially with this new diet I’m on now.
Special K2O protein water mix comes in a variety of different flavors, such as pink lemonade, strawberry kiwi, and iced tea. I’m not a big fan of iced tea in general, so I probably wouldn’t like the mix either. However, I’ve found that the strawberry kiwi and pink lemonade flavors are delicious. You would never know you are drinking a healthy drink! It sort of reminds me of Kool-Aid or some other sugary juice drink.
So the big question is; does this product really work? Absolutely! I’ve been drinking this water mix once per day, in the afternoon between lunch and dinner, and it really helped curve my appetite and quiet my growling stomach. There’s a long stretch between my lunch at 11:00 am, and dinner, which is usually around 5:30 pm. To lose weight, you’re supposed to snack in between meals, so your body doesn’t get hungry and go into “starvation mode”, but sometimes it’s just not that easy to grab something to eat. This water mix is a great alternative to snacking. It gives you the same feeling of being full as a snack would, without all of the calories. It has been proven that a diet high in protein and fiber can help you lose weight. You are getting a good amount of both from the Special K2O water mix.
Special K has a great variety of foods to aid in your weight loss. My favorites include the Special K Red Berries cereal and Special K cereal bars, along with the protein water mix. Most of their products are affordable, especially with coupons. I’ve purchased a box of 7 water mixes for $3.99 at Giant Eagle, and I’ve seen them in Rite-Aid and Wal-Mart for around the same price. Pairing this water mix with a healthy, balanced diet can help you shed pounds and lose the fat before the upcoming bathing suit weather!
