Psyllium fiber is a great weight loss supplement that helps to satisfy the appetite and regulate the digestive system.

Coconut milk is great for weight loss and adds great flavor. Coconut milk helps control blood sugar and build strong bones.

Your local health food supply store will carry protein powers. Adding whey protein powders can be an easy way to add protein to your diet.

Greek yogurt can add to the consistency and provide added health benefits. Greek yogurt is a good source of calcium and can help curb your appetite.
