If you decide to supplement with a protein powder- use our handy guide in this newsletter to look at the differences.
Have you ever finished a meal and afterwards wondered what you just ate? Have you mindlessly munched on snacks while zoning out in front of a TV? Do you ever find yourself grazing on food without really tasting it? How about eating while standing at the counter or computer? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you have been a victim of mindless eating!
