Founder and CEO of thinkThin®, Lizanne Falsetto, is passionate about wellness. She had a successful career in the fashion industry which led her to work and live all over the world including, Japan, Paris, Milan, New York, Australia and Madrid. Her experience taught her how important nutrition was to health.
“I lived overseas as an International model for 14 years,” Lizanne told The Healthy Moms Magazine, ” and when I came back to living full time in the US, I was really challenged to find nutritious food on the go – food that had good taste and quality. I started to make my own bars; stripped down, natural ingredients. Keeping to what works best in my body, high protein, no sugar and gluten free.”
The all natural thinkThin® protein bars include these delicious flavors; chunky peanut butter, creamy peanut butter, brownie crunch, white chocolate, chocolate fudge, dark chocolate, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate espresso, tangerine cremesicle, cookies and cream, caramel fudge and lemon cream pie. They also have also have 7 crunch flavors; chocolate dipped mixed nuts, white chocolate dipped mixed nuts, caramel chocolate dipped mixed nuts, plain mixed nuts and the NEW FRUIT AND NUT bar; blueberry and mixed nuts, cranberry apple and mixed nuts and cherry and mixed nuts. They also have four flavors of bites 100 calorie snack bars; toffee nut, dark chocolate, white chocolate raspberry and cookies and creme.
Along with making healthy food for consumers and raising her two children, Lizanne is a passionate philanthropist dedicated to fighting and creating awareness for diseases like obesity and diabetes. She raises awareness through participating in events that align with supporting a healthy lifestyle. Recently thinkThin® attended the American Dietitic Association food and nutrition expo. Her company also supports gluten free expos on a local, regional and national level. Lizanne also held a wellness event supporting First Lady Michelle Obama in her “Let’s Move” campaign.
thinkThin® protein bars are delicious and make a wonderful addition to any women’s diet especially active busy moms like me. In order to have the energy to take care of the people we love, we must take care of ourselves first.
“It’s important to take care of your health because you are only given one life,” Lizanne explains, “I myself believe in living a long healthy life and having a positive mind and body. I want to be around to watch my kids grow up and experience life with them. At thinkThin®, we believe strongly in the premise of weight wellness. This is the optimal weight range at which our bodies feel happy and healthy. This is not defined or dictated by aesthetic, shape, weight or tape measure – it is the physical and emotional outcome of feeling good, energized, funny, confident and living a life filled with joy and laughter. Once we focus on being healthy and happy, our bodies will follow and align.”
In order to manage my weight and keep my metabolism going I eat small meals and healthy snacks every three hours. thinkThin® protein bars are the perfect mid morning snack for my busy lifestyle. I found that after eating one bar I stay full longer and have the energy I need to keep up with my kids especially my very active two-year-old. I will do my best to take Lizanne’s final words of advice to http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifheart, “Don’t waste a minute – try and do it all! Live life to the fullest; rich, varied, active and with interest and laughter surrounding family and friends.”
