Eating food that is bad for you is like being in a bad relationship. All empty calories, no substance and a feeling of regret or remorse afterward.

Even if you have gained 10 to 20 pounds thanks to the unhealthy food, that brownie you’ve been eyeing becomes even harder to resist.

What to do? The answer is to eat food that tastes good and is good for you: food that satisfies you and controls your appetite. And therein is the challenge.

Extend Nutrition Offers a Real Food Solution

Extend Nutrition delivers on both fronts – taste and nutrition - with a line of 17 flavors that includes both sweet and savory choices in bars, shakes, crisps and drizzles.

The snacks, created by Dr. Francine Kaufman, are the only ones clinically proven to help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours.

The result is snacks that not only taste good but are also used to help manage diabetes, sustain energy and control weight and appetite.

Stable Blood Sugar is Key

Keeping blood sugar in a healthy range is important for weight control because low blood sugar triggers hunger. It puts stress on your body and can lead to unhealthy food choices.

The slow-release of carbohydrates in Extend Nutrition snacks is clinically proven to help you reduce the calories you consume at your next meal by an average of 21 percent when enjoyed as a snack between meals.

The key ingredient in Extend Nutrition snacks is raw uncooked cornstarch, a very complex and low-glycemic carbohydrate that digests and converts to blood sugar slowly.

Foods that help blood sugar

When eating foods that help blood sugar, there is no blood sugar spike and no insulin spike (which reduces the fat storage response).

High-glycemic foods (aka junk foods), on the other hand, convert to blood sugar quickly and spike blood sugar. The body responds by over-producing insulin, storing excess glucose as fat.

Smart Choices versus Bad Choices

With so many hidden ingredients in foods it is sometimes hard to really know if you’re making smart food choices.

Even if you are currently on medications you can enjoy Extend Nutrition snacks because they are made up completely of food grade ingredients that are on the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) list.

There are no drugs, herbs or chemicals in the Extend Nutrition formula: just a patented blend of lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats that no other snack can match.

That’s the beauty of Extend Nutrition snacks, and why we are confident that you will look and feel better when you include them as part of a healthy lifestyle.

It is a myth that you must deprive yourself to lose weight. As long as you make smart choices (choose foods that help blood sugar and include exercise), you can experience satisfaction and weight loss.

A healthy relationship with food will only improve your other relationships as well.
