My Secret to Fighting Hunger and Endless Cravings!

Ever have endless cravings? If you could see me right now, you would see my hand slowly popping up. I love sweets and carbs-there’s just something about them that makes my mouth water-even when I am not all too hungry. Cravings can get the best of us and make or break a healthy diet or weight loss goal. So, how do we deal with it?

I have been obsessed with AppeFIT from Next Step and have been taking it once per day for the last couple of weeks. It is a drink mix powder that can be taken alone or in a smoothie to reduce hunger and cravings. The secret ingredient in this ingredient that takes away your cravings and mindless hunger is Appethyl, a natural spinach extract. Appethyl is clinically shown to reduce hunger and cravings while promoting a feeling of fullness for about 5 hours. It also has been documented to delay fat digestion, which in turn will increase the amount of satiety hormones in our body.

I like drinking mine when I need the feeling of fullness the most.. mid-day slumps! Otherwise, I will overeat at dinner time and become more likely to reach for that midnight snack. I feel more energy after drinking it so that is a perk of mine!

You can add a scoop of AppeFIT into a smoothie, soup or a green drink. If you’re taking AppeFit with a green drink or smoothie, add a tablespoon of your choice of healthy oil-I like coconut oil. You must take this product with healthy fats hence the reason for adding the oil because in order to work, it needs a certain amount of fat. Some people may choose to take it with almond butter and that works, too!

I personally added a scoop to my morning green smoothie that I drink on a daily basis. I did notice that after drinking my smoothie, I was a bit fuller than usual! I actually was not super hungry near lunch time so I did not over-indulge. On busy mornings when I am in a rush though, I like to mix it with just orange juice!

If you would like to make the smoothie for yourself, here is the recipe:


  • 1 scoop AppeFIT
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • 1/2 cup mango
  • Ice


Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add as much ice as you need to get the desired consistency.
