underWAY and Smart for Life products

Recently, I receive 8 bottles of two popular underWAY flavors (Acai-Pomegranate and Grape) PLUS a variety pack of Smart for Life products.

This specific blog tour is mostly to spread the news about a underWAY which is a  supplement drink, infused with special HeroFiber and heart-healthy vitamins, that works to suppress your appetite and quench your thirst.   underWAY curbs your hunger two ways. Its special formulation not only takes longer to be absorbed by the stomach, it also slows the absorption of what's already there, making you feel fuller, longer. It contains no preservatives, sodium or caffeine, with only 10 calories and 2 grams of carbsper 8 oz. serving. HeroFiber, a soluble dietary fiber, helps maintain normal levels of cholesterol, glucose andinsulin that are already in the normal range and promotes slower absorption so we feel fuller longer.

As part of the blog tour, I also received a bunch of Smart for Life Product.  In the package, I found cereal, soup, shake, bagel, cruch, as well as the famous cookies and cupcakes on which the diet is apparently based on.

Invented by the same heart doctor as underWAY, Smart for Life all natural, 60% organic products offer great snacking on-the-go, containing necessary nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids and HeroFiber, with zero trans fat and making you feel fuller, quicker.

My Thoughts

I am overweight – I admit it.   And last  year, I lost almost 30 pounds and went down two sizes.   I have more to loose.   I am realistic and totally honest about it.   I would like to get another 20 pounds or so off.   So when I had the opportunity to discover new products to help me I decided I would give it a try.

The day after I received my box of products, I decided to try some of them.  

First I had the Chocolate Berry Cereal bowl.   It was tasty and very chocolaty but I found that it was a bit dry (even with the milk in it).    However, it did fill me up during the breakfast.

Later, I had a grape underWAY drink and I found it very tasty as well.   You could taste the grape inside your mouth and I felt refreshed afterward.   It would be a good drink to have after having done exercises.  What I particularly liked about it is that there isn’t any salt in it like other well known drinks recognize to help quench your thirst after exercises. 

During the day I also tried the smart crunch and one chocolate mountain cupcakes.   Again, you have the fullness sensation when you eat these but honestly I wish it would be not as dried in your mouth when you eat it.

To be totally honest with my readers, I find the Smart for Life diet a bit bizarre – based on eating cookies and/or cupcakes???   To me it is bizarre.   Besides, when reading the documentation, you learn that you are not supposed to eat fruits, specific meats and vegetables.   Personally, I prefer a weight control plan that will teach me how to limit the quantity of food I eat rather than limiting me in the kind of food I can have.  I understand that fruits have natural sugars and that eating too much of them can result in gaining weight.  But to stop me to eat some while I am trying to loose weight – no way especially during summer time where fruits are abundant.   Concerning the the underWAY drinks, I find them interesting and fun to have at hand when needed.  

I will leave to my readers to discover the prices of the products by themselves.   I can tell you though that I find the products quite expensive when you think that it is food and drinks.

  1. Hmmm. I would like to try them because like you, I'm trying to lose weight and this is a very curious method.
    I admit it seems odd to lose weight while eating what seems to be the food we need to avoid, but replacing one meal a day with something like this might work to boost the loss during a plateau period (or when hormones make me want eat things I shouldnt).
