Are your hormones effecting your weight loss?

How Glucomannan aid Weight Loss?


I know they say that you can put on extra weight during hormonal changes, but where did that all come from !! 😥  That is how I felt when I woke up one morning and looked in the mirror, it felt like the weight had just appeared overnight and I just wanted to cry!

I have always been prone to weight and had to work hard and keeping the physique I wanted.  The fact that I loved working out helped, but when I went into peri-menopause  and my body shape completely changed. 

I tried everything and nothing seemed to work, which made me feel very despondent and low, because I did not like the body I was in.  I researched high and low to try and figure out what had happened.  During  my  research I discovered so much conflicting information about food, that was very confusing.  For every report you read about ‘This is good for you’, you can find another that states ‘No it’s not ??!’   It is not surprising that so many people are confused about what to do.  What makes it even more confusing, is that most of the research is carried out by well-respected doctors.   This doesn’t mean that they are wrong, it just means that we are all different and one size does not fit all . 

What I also found that I was a lot more hungry, than I ever use to be ? When you body is changing, it takes a great deal of energy to do this,  which makes you tired and when you are tired and have to keep going – you get hungry !

Nature had the answer to weight loss

Then I stumbled across a product called Glucomannan.  I soon discovered  its amazing health properties and how it acts as an Appetite Suppressant which helps in weight loss.  This was exactly what I needed to get into a routine of smaller portion sizes.  It can be really tough when you are trying to lose weight and you feel hungry all of the time, especially when a lot of the foods we currently eat contain empty calories.  We become more  nutritional unsatisfied so our bodies start to crave foods.  

So the The Leaner Blend was created.  Our specially formulated blend contains Nature’s finest plant based products to aid with weight loss. 

Did you know, Glucomannan is the only active ingredient that has been recognised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in relation to weight loss? It also happens to be our key ingredient! Combined with Garcinia Cambogia- another appetite suppressant and Inulin to work with the gut, this product is must on your weight loss journey!


SOOO… What exactly is Glucomannan & how does it aid Weight Loss?

Glucomannan is a sugar made from the root of the Konjac plant. It’s loved and appreciated in Japan it even has it own nickname “the broom of intestines” which gives us a good idea how this works!  This product  contains very few calories and creates a sense of fullness by absorbing water and expanding bulky fiber in your stomach, without creating bloating.

When consumed, glucomannan sponges up water in the digestive tract, reducing the absorption of carbs and cholesterol, therefore supporting weight loss!   According to the famed DR. Oz, “it’s one of the best ways to control your hunger”, the “best appetite suppressant” and it’s “natures skinny sponge”.

The easiest way to take glucomannan is to mix it with water or a juice of your choice and drink immediately.  When taken in this way, it is not gloopy in constancy, unlike some other products.  If you leave it for some time, then it does expand and thicken up.  So the recommendation is to drink it immediately and then follow it up with another glass of water.

In 2007 one study published in the British Journal of Nutrition – participants taking a glucomannan combination supplement lost approximately 10 pounds in 16 weeks compared to 1.7 pounds lost in the placebo group. Another study using only glucomannan showed an average of 5.5 pounds lost over eight weeks, without making any other diet changes. 

What are the benefits of Glucomannan in Weight Loss?

Firstly – it’s very low in calories. It takes up space in stomach and promotes a feeling of fullness, which allows you to ‘healthily’ reduce your food intake at each meal. It also delays stomach emptying which contributes to increased satiety! Not only this, it actually feeds the friendly bacteria in your intestine, which is an effective way to assist your weight loss journey. Feeding your gut bacteria also has other benefits. Some studies have shown a correlation between gut bacteria and body weight and whilst we are talking about gut bacteria, another product  in the blend is Inulin, a prebiotic, adding another boost to the gut and your weight loss goals.

And finally, Glucomannan also differs from other fibres as it’s especially viscous, making it particularly effective for your weight loss. This powerful blend will assist on your weight loss journey to Living Better Health!
