Smart for Life

I was ecstatic to find a box on my doorstep from Smart For Life.  Mom Central is hosting a blog tour for under-WAY and Smart For Life products. 

Their product idea is that you eat cookies and drink lots of water, and you lose weight.  I don't really need to lose any pounds, but my body could use some toning after having three babies. 

They sent cookies, a bagel, and some no calorie drinks.  The drinks are sort of like a flavored water or a sports drink in flavor, but they taste all right.  The one problem that I see with them is that they still taste like they don't have any sugar in them.  I have never been a fan of aspartame or sucralose, so these products don't completely do it for me, but I had an ulterior motive for wanting to be a part of this blog tour. 

Most people who read this blog know that my husband is overweight and a diabetic.  He doesn't always want to eat what he should, so I have been keeping my eyes open for diabetes friendly foods.  Smart For Life totally fits the bill.  The products are flavorful, full of good nutrients, and full of fiber.  My favorite of all of them were the chocolate chip cookies.  They were soft, and when eat them and drank one of the under-WAY waters at the same time, they were not only edible, but pretty yummy.  If I were really wanting to lose weight, Smart For Life would be a blessing to me.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of underWAY and Smart for Life and received samples of the products to review.

Its really hard to keep up with a healthy diet. Those Smart for Life cookies look interesting but expensive. I bought the eat this, not that books and those are really helpful, especially if you eat out a lot, because it gives you an idea of what is the healthiest choice on the menu. I've decided to give up sodas and that has been so hard. I am down to maybe a can of soda a day. But I know thats more than I should drink. I'm trying to make it a habit of only drinking water when I'm thirsty and also to drink a glass of water when I'm feeling hungry just to make sure its hunger not dehydration. Its hard and my belly is not as toned as it used to be or could be. Also a good sugar replacement is Stevia. Its sweeter than sugar without all the chemical problems of artificial sweeteners and no calories.
