Share Article

Whether you're resolving to manage your weight in the New Year or just want a delicious, healthy, filling snack, nothing beats LightFull.

Eating healthy and losing weight are perennially two of the most popular New Year's resolutions. But for most of us, these are the hardest resolutions to keep . Why? Because historically losing weight meant feeling hungry and eating less of the things that taste great. But it doesn't have to be that way! There's a simple solution to prevent New Year's resolution failure in 2007 -- it's called satiety.

Satiety-enhancing foods -- those that keep people feeling full longer -- were cited as one of 2007's top trends by Datamonitor's Productscan Online. LightFull Satiety Smoothie is one of the first foods created specifically to address the role of satiety. Foods higher in fiber and protein take longer to digest, and keep people feeling full longer, with fewer calories. LightFull smoothies are only 90-100 calories and packed with a whopping five-six grams of fiber and six grams of protein -- that's more fullness per calorie than any other snack on the market.

To help educate people about satiety, LightFull Foods invited consumers to take the LightFull Satiety Challenge by comparing their usual snack to LightFull Satiety Smoothies. The overwhelming response shows that LightFull is more satisfying than other snacks -- even compared to snacks with more calories.

  •     98% of consumers said LightFull was more satisfying than their usual snack -- including nuts, popcorn, yogurt, energy bars and pretzels
  •     71% of people stated LightFull kept them feeling full for 3 hours or more
  •     94% of people reported LightFull kept them feeling full for 2 hours or more

"Many people can't keep their New Year's resolutions because they turn to a diet of deprivation. But that can change in 2007! LightFull smoothies are about satisfaction and fulfillment, not diet and deprivation." said Lara Jackle, chief executive officer of LightFull Foods. "Whether you're resolving to manage your weight in the New Year or just want a delicious, healthy, filling snack, nothing beats LightFull."

Available in four creamy flavors -- Strawberries & Cream, Peaches & Cream, Chocolate Fudge and Café Latte -- LightFull is also all-natural (has no artificial sweeteners), contains three cups worth of green tea antioxidants and is an excellent source of calcium. In fact, this "surprisingly filling" snack was named by Dairy Foods magazine as one of 2006's best new products.

LightFull Satiety Smoothies are available at and more than 1,100 natural and gourmet food retail locations across the U.S. including select Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, Shaw's, Safeway, Vons, Dominick's, Randalls and Hannaford stores.
