It’s important to stay hydrated, especially as the temperature soars. But indulging in typical summer drinks may be downright irresponsible. Many favorites (alcoholic or not) aren’t known for their healthfulness. Registered dietitian nutritionist Felicia Stoler has been traveling the morning show circuit from Dallas to Philadelphia showing viewers how to make better-for-you beverages. We love how the author of Living Skinny in Fat Genes suggested adding Regular Girl to cool drinks to boost their fiber content. Regular Girl’s soluble fiber helps you feel fuller longer, so you’ll be less tempted to snack on those calorie-rich summer snacks. Now that’s smart!
Stoler’s first tip was sobering: “The place where most Americans get too much added sugar in their diet is from beverages.” Drinking plain water is always healthy, but if you need a little more, brew your own green tea. Craving sweetness? Add stevia to taste.
Adding Regular Girl to your favorite summer beverage is another way to drink responsibly this summer. Regular Girl’s blend of probiotics and prebiotic soluble fiber helps your digestive system function at its best. This keeps you ready for whatever summer throws at you and keeps you out of the bathroom battling occasional constipation, diarrhea or painful bloating. “Most Americans don’t get enough fiber in their diet,” said Stoler who explained that we should be getting 25 to 30 grams each day. One serving of Regular Girl provides six grams of premium, gluten-free Sunfiber.
On set, Stoler added Regular Girl to iced green tea, but this easy-to-take blend can be added to any non-carbonated, cool beverage without changing its taste, odor or color. “And there’s no problem with mouth feel,” Stoler added. Some fiber supplements turn beverages thick or gloppy, but Regular Girl won’t alter a drink’s texture. There are also no side effects. That’s one more reason why responsible drinkers choose Regular Girl.
