We’ve come to simply accept that a diet may not work. We literally go in knowing it’s not gonna do a dang thing. More and more we’ve decided to treat our health like a dollar store purchase or lottery ticket. “Here goes nothing!” we say, like we just purchased a 24-pack of AA batteries for $2.99. Or “This time!” as we deliver a wishful sigh to our proverbial Scratch Off.
Though the diet industry would love for you to believe that losing weight is far more complicated than it is, the truth is, it’s not rocket science. What we thought we knew is all wrong. Instead of trying to eliminate macro nutrients like carbs and fats, the key to long term weight management is to look at the bigger picture and see how all the nutrients combine to affect our body’s blood sugar. Foods that don’t spike and crash our blood sugar are called low glycemic. The carbs in these foods release energy slowly into the body and make us feel more satisfied longer and give us sustained energy over a longer timeframe. Pretty simple, right?
Generations of nagging parents have yelled at us about eating healthy. They’ve said things like “There’s no food in your food!” and “Eat something that will stick to your ribs.” Unlike other diet bars, SoLo actually works because it gives you sustained energy. That means, you won’t be starving an hour later and reach for more calories. You’ll be satisfied and get this…stay satisfied.
