Did you see our fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine? Okay, so we weren’t rocking our hot pink mini, but we were mentioned in this iconic fashion magazine. In an article about holiday weight management, Assistant Editor Chelsea Peng shared some shocking news: Chances are, many of us are the lightest we will be all year. This is according to a New England Journal of Medicine study that researched weight gain over the holidays. Peng’s article offered tips to help readers keep their figure, “during this time of culturally sanctioned gluttony.” And that’s where Regular Girl shined.
Yeng spoke with five nutrition experts about the topic. They all offered smart advice, but we were particularly smitten with Felicia Stoler’s tip. The registered dietitian nutritionist explained that the food choices we make may influence our future calorie intake. “Consume a high fiber diet or consider a supplement like Sunfiber or Regular Girl before attending your holiday celebration,” she said. “This helps with satiety, the feeling of fullness, so you don’t overeat.”
So true, Felicia! The soluble fiber in Regular Girl actually helps to slow digestion. This may help you feel comfortably full, so you won’t be tempted to linger too long at the holiday cookie platter or office party buffet.
Be careful if you’re not used to consuming a high-fiber diet. Many common fiber-packed foods, such as beans, whole-grain cereals and certain vegetables may cause stomach discomfort and painful gas. Regular Girl’s soluble fiber is gentle on your belly. One serving delivers five grams of fiber without excess gas or bloating. And it mixes cleanly into the foods and drinks you’re already consuming, so you don’t need to add another calorie-laden snack or bar into your diet.
So prepare for the holidays by upping your fiber intake with Regular Girl. And then take our advice on what to eat when you’re at your next holiday party. With these tips, you just may disprove that study, and enjoy a trimmer and slimmer holiday.
