In this blog I want to feature a product that we recommend to our clients. I don’t often write blogs about products that we don’t produce ourselves. So you know, when I do, it is a product that I really believe in and trust. In this week’s blog I want to talk about Stur Liquid Water Enhancers, what they are used for and why I love them.
Basically these are products that can be added to plain water to give it some flavor. They come in a variety of flavors, so everyone should be able to find one that they enjoy. They are very similar to Mio water flavoring in their use. I bring up Mio only because it is the most popular and well know water flavoring product out there. When a client does a weight loss program with us, in either or Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky weight loss offices, we will often have them consuming water on a regular basis. Regular water consumption helps keep the metabolism going. It also keeps clients fully hydrated so they don’t have aggressive swings in their weight (either losses or gains) on a daily basis. The issue is that drinking plain water all day can be boring. This is where Stur can help! Adding Stur Liquid Water Enhancer to water every once in a while is a great way to break up the monotony and minimize frustrations.
All Stur Liquid Water Enhancer products are 0 calories. When a client is aggressively trying to lose weight, and they want that weight to be body fat, it is is of utmost importance to limit the junk calories coming into the diet. You wouldn’t, for instance, want to have a Coke a couple of times per day when you are thirsty to satisfy that craving because of the high sugar (and calorie) content (Diet Coke is a completely different animal that I have written extensively on). So, Stur products will help solve the problem of plain water getting boring without adding any junk calories. But there are many 0 calorie water flavoring products (Mio included), why do I love Stur? The reason Stur is my go to recommendation come down to its ingredient. While most water flavorings contain artificial sweeteners, Stur is sweetened with natural Stevia, a MUCH better choice in my opinion. Again, I have written a number of articles on artificial sweeteners (namely aspartame and sucralose) and why I am not the biggest fan of these products during a weight loss journey. The bottom line is that they are linked in many research studies to weight gain. Stevia, on the other hand, has been shown to actually have health benefits (maybe a topic for the future).
Stur Liquid Water Enhancer products will continue to be our go to recommendation for clients on a weight loss journey. You can find Stur products by clicking on this linkSchedule an Appointment
