SkinnyStix is that little nudge to get you on the right path

January is the biggest month of year for joining gyms, buying athletic gear and trying out new supplements. Mostly it’s because people spent Thanksgiving through New Year’s drinking, eating and not working out. But it can be hard to get back on the horse…so to speak.

A new supplement called SkinnyStix is here to help you get back out there. SkinnyStix is a five calorie powder that you mix with water or another liquid (celebrity endorser Jenny McCarthy mixes it with her morning smoothie). The mix includes yerba mate, guarana, damiana and a xanthine complex that gives you energy, elevates your mood and improves focus and stamina. I got a chance to try it out and here is my review!

You are supposed to mix it with 16 ounces of water – you might want to add even more (nothing wrong with drinking more water) because it is really strong.  My sample pack came with a branded water bottle (which comes with some varieties) and is bigger than 16 ounces. I drank it in the afternoon when I needed a boost. It didn’t make me feel wired, but it gave me more energy and curbed my desire to snack. The other major thing I noticed is that I felt really tired around bedtime, This might be good or bad, depending on who you are. I am sensitive to caffeine and sometimes just having a coffee in the afternoon will keep me up at night.  This would also be good to drink about 30 minutes before your workout for an extra boost. I would definitely consider buying/ using this again.

You can buy SkinnyStix in a 21 serving version ($29.99) or an eight pack ($14.99), It comes in tangerine, berry and lime and can be purchased online and in stores like Walgreens and Kohls.
