As many of you may know, I started making choices that would lead me to a healthier lifestyle in December of last year.  I cut out meat, some dairy and sugar, and thought I was on the road to a new, healthier me.  However, I started to feel tired and drained and found myself having to nap for hours during the day.  I later found that my Vitamin B levels had dropped and needed to add the supplement to my diet, but it wasn’t enough.  I needed to make sure that I was absorbing those nutrients and discovered one key thing could help with that – fiber!

I was on the hunt for an easy way to jump-start adding fiber to my daily routine when I was asked to take part in the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge – talk about perfect timing!

After looking into the benefits of the product, I learned that the main ingredient is psyllium, a natural super fiber that works with your body to promote regularity* and help promote digestive health.*  By adding a serving of Metamucil to my daily routine and gradually increasing my intake during the Challenge, by the end of the Challenge  I started to feeler lighter* as Metamucil traps and removes the waste that weighs me down. . As the mother of three young girls, there is nothing more important than staying healthy and having the energy to have fun with them! So now I have a new routine: eat well, stay active and incorporate more fiber into my daily routine.  I’d say I’m on the right track to a new, healthier me!

I challenge you to take the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge.  It’s easy to sign up and even easier to get started.  And once you’ve completed the Challenge, that doesn’t mean that you should stop your new healthy habit – keep things going like I am!

Metamucil is a great addition to your daily routine and can be incorporated in so many easy ways.  Not only can you add it to an 8oz. glass of water, but there are also so many recipes available online.  Doesn’t a pineapple mango protein smoothie sound amazing?  How about a banana orange frosty?  These recipes and more can be found on Metamucil.com and they are just two of the delicious reasons to keep your new fiber routine going.  I know I will!
