Yummie Patch Cookies With Appetite Suppressant Ingredients

The Search for Nutritious, Yummy Snacks - Gourmet Treats That Keep You Healthy

Snacking is the Great American Pastime. Perhaps that's why we're beset with so many diet-based ills, and a plague of obesity. But nutritionists say that those goodies, when selected properly, can be part of a well-balanced diet.

These days, health food stores, supermarkets and even the convenience store on the corner are offering an array of snacks that bill themselves as nutritious ways to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. Protein bars, energy bars, low-fat or no-fat cookies, bars and fudge, all are enough to make eating sweets as salubrious as taking vitamins.

But are these alternatives really that good for you? Dr. Kenneth Absher, a nutritionist who also happens to be an optometrist, and who's writing a book about healing vision problems through diet, doesn't think the collection of snacks now on the market offer the consumer much more than unappetizing taste, plenty of sugar, and a chance to gain weight.

"Everyone has a claim to make about their food," says Absher. "It's either high energy-read high in carbohydrates that will make you fat if you aren't a serious athlete-or low-fat/no-fat that tastes crummy and has very little food value." He's not alone. Nutritionists agree that these snacks aren't always what they're cracked up to be.

"Low or no-fat [snacks] tend to have more sugar because they have to get the appetizing taste from somewhere else if they don't have fat," says Brenda Tillotson, a nutritionist who practices in New Hampshire. "And energy bars have a lot of carbohydrates, but you want to be sure they aren't full of sugar, too. "Athletes use them for quick energy, but they are not a supplement for a meal. They don't replace vegetables." Nutritionist and author Joyce Daoust notes that desserts and snacks can be a part of a well-balanced diet, but that the desserts and snacks themselves have to be well-balanced in order to do their job.

"We believe that eating 40 percent of total calories from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein, and 30 percent from fat is the healthiest way to eat, and that includes desserts and snacks," says Daoust, who along with her husband Gene is author of the book 40-30-30 Fat Burning Nutrition.

Absher himself has attempted to develop a cookie that does, indeed, offer good nutrition along with yummy taste, and that may in fact replace vegetables. Absher's Yummie Patch cookie is high in natural fiber, essential amino acids and fatty acids, and packed with vitamins, vegetable protein and the phytonutrients found in vegetables. The cookie is available by clicking the links on this page. Its name, Yummie Patch, is meant to conjure up all the natural good things that might be found in a well-tended garden patch, notes Absher.

In fact, Yummie Patch is a veritable smorgasbord of healthful ingredients, many of which can be found separately in other food products, but aren't frequently bundled together in one item. The end result is a well-balanced food that, when eaten regularly, can lower blood sugar levels, block fat metabolism and promote the burning of fat, Absher notes. And the good news is that accessing these healthful benefits is easier than ever because the cookie has another important attribute-it tastes good.

The Yummie Patch Cookie contains 500 mg of hydrocitric acid (HCA), a natural appetite suppressant related to the acid found in citrus fruits. It also It also contains Chitosan and 1000 mg of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are the anti-cancer compounds found in fruits and vegetables. Chitosan is a weight loss fiber.

  • Gymnema Sylvestri Extract 50 mg
  • Fat-Absorbing Fiber Blend 400 mg

Eating causes the production of free radicals, which is why you should take antioxidant vitamins like Life Extension Mix with every meal. We have added a low potency antioxidant blend to the All-In-One Weight Loss Capsule to provide you with protection against dietary induced free radical activity. We also include 50 mcg of folate in every capsule to help prevent the conversion of dietary proteins into the atherogenic agent homocysteine.

Why Are Americans So Fat?

Conjugated Linoleic Acid
Americans are overweight, but is dietary fat the reason, when members of previous generations often consumed higher percentages of dietary fat than many overweight people today?
Conjugated Linoleic Acid
In the 1980s, Americans gained on average of 8 pounds each, yet consumption of diet drinks and low-fat foods was much higher than in the previous decade. Today, "lite" versions of almost every processed food are being consumed by Americans obsessed with losing weight. Yet despite eating low fat foods, the fat epidemic continues unabated. Let's take a look at why so many Americans are overweight. .
