"The Mission Makeover series provided us with a great opportunity to showcase both RightSize smoothies and our commitment to healthy weight loss," explains Laurie Chapman, Brand Manager of RightSize. "We're very excited to be a part of it!"Chapman appears in a segment sharing the benefits of RightSize with the Mission Makeover participants. RightSize smoothies' rich, decadent taste makes them a welcome addition to any weight-loss plan, she explains. "They are so delicious, you actually feel like you're cheating!" Chapman points out the importance of the one-two punch of high protein and fiber in RightSize, the key combination that curbs hunger and makes one feel satisfied longer. She also shared the results of an independent 12-week clinical trial published last fall in Current Nutrition and Food Science, which showed participants lost a pound or more per week when incorporating RightSize smoothies into their reduced calorie diets. Chapman invites participants and viewers to try the more than 100 smoothie recipes at www.myrightsize.com. The web site also offers weight loss plans, dieting tips and a supportive community. RightSize smoothies are loaded with nutrients. Each serving of RightSize contains the nutrition of a meal, including 15 grams of protein when made with fat-free milk, and 6 grams of fiber. That's more protein than in 21 cups of spinach and as much fiber as in six cups of kale. Each smoothie also contains over 20 essential vitamins and minerals as well as natural ingredients, such as green tea and ginger root extracts. RightSize smoothies have no added caffeine and are gluten-free.
