Last month, I took the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge to ensure I’m getting enough fiber in my daily wellness routine so I can keep up with the boys. The Challenge is a simple way to help me focus on the importance of digestive health and my daily fiber intake. I’ve stuck with it and couldn’t be happier with my experience thus far.
So what is the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge, you ask?
The Challenge is designed to introduce people to the benefits that daily use of psyllium fiber, a natural super fiber, can have on a healthy routine. You see, Metamucil works with the body to help remove the waste that weighs you down, so you can start to feel lighter* in two weeks. For 14 days, I mixed Metamucil Sugar Free Orange Smooth powder with my normal 8 oz. of water. The first few days, I had one serving and slowly moved up to 3-4 servings a day throughout the Challenge.
I started to notice the benefits almost right away and loved it. Metamucil made me feel less hungry between meals* and over time, definitely helped promote regularity and my overall digestive health.* Other added benefits is that it helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*, and lowers cholesterol to promote heart health.† As I’ve mentioned previously, my cholesterol levels and heart health have been a key focus for me this year, so it’s great that this new add-on has helped me stay on track.
One more thing that I noticed was that I was feeling less bloated. The last few months, I’ve felt really sluggish and constantly hungry even though I was eating clean and eating good portions. After taking Metamucil, I now realize that it’s not just about eating clean, but eating balanced meals and getting enough of everything that I need to support my body – including fiber.
While I’ve completed the Two-Week Challenge, I am continuing to take my Metamucil daily. I’m so glad that it’s become a regular part of my day, especially during the work week. I leave it out on the kitchen island and take it mid-morning and mid-afternoon between meals. It was exactly what I need to jumpstart my daily wellness routine.
Overall, I feel lighter as Metamucil promotes regularity.* The Metamucil Two-Week Challenge has helped me recognize the importance of digestive health from the inside out, and it’s been a great way to maintain motivation for healthier eating habits and overall wellness while raising my three little babes.
I can’t wait to see continued results and benefits from staying on top of my fiber intake and I hope you feel encouraged to do the same! Signing up for the Challenge is super easy. Just visit Metamucil.com/twoweekchallenge to check it out!
†Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium husk, as in Metamucil, may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. One serving of Metamucil Powder has at least 2.4 grams of this soluble fiber. Consult a doctor if you are considering use of this product as part of a cholesterol-lowering program.
