I first tried a FullBar about 18 months ago. I was anchoring the evening shows in Providence. I had gotten really busy and didn’t have time to eat and I was starving. I’m almost always in a good mood, unless I’m hungry or tired. Those in my inner circle know this about me. So, whenever I would start getting testy (rare, I promise) my boss would give me food. This was actually pretty genius on his part…and kind, too!
FullBar promises to do a lot that, frankly, I’m not really interested in. From its website, “fullbar, being inspired by weight-loss surgery, uses the same fullness principles of surgery to fill your stomach with less food. This causes you to feel full and satisfied on smaller amounts of food, resulting in consuming less calories and helping you lose weight.” I’m not trying to lose weight, so I’m not really concerned with all that stuff (now, if FullBars could make my body look like Brooke Burke’s, I’d buy them by the case!)
Here’s the deal. I like fast, easy, food–that’s good for me–and that I can eat on the run. I’m a busy mom and sometimes I forget or don’t have time to sit down to a full meal. I need something that is going to give me enough energy until I get a chance to have a real meal and get rid of that pit in my stomach. I’m a fan of Luna bars, Fiber One bars and FullBars. They all pass the taste test (but taste very different). I think Fullbars taste like a mix of rice krispy treat & rice cake. My 22 mos. old daughter loved them and kept asking for a bite. Could I lose weight with FullBars? Not sure. But if you are looking for a snack and a healthier alternative to a lot of other stuff you could nosh on, you might want to give FullBars a try!
