Chocolate Hazelnut Spread: A Weight Loss Wonder

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread: A Weight Loss Wonder 0

Some food ads can make your weight loss diet seem a bit burdensome. Take those commercials for chocolate hazelnut spread, for example. Everyone in the family gets to enjoy sweet, creamy spread on goodies such as waffles and bagels. If you wish you could have the same delight, but are too dedicated to your weight loss program to consider the full-sugar version, consider sugar-free Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.

Real Ingredients

Did you know that the first two ingredients of regular “hazelnut” spread are sugar and palm oil? That is a little bit off-putting. The main ingredients of Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread are unsweetened chocolate and hazelnuts. It contains coconut oil, not hydrogenated palm oil, and natural monkfruit instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners. You are what you eat, and it is good to be Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.

An Unbelievable Treat

It may seem too good to be true that Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is allowed on your diet, but it is low-carb and sugar-free, while regular spread has over 20 grams of sugar. Plus, it is all-natural. It has 130 calories per 2-tablespoon serving, which is 35% fewer calories than regular spread or peanut butter and an easier amount to fit into your meal plan.

Fantastic Fiber

Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread has a whopping 12 grams of dietary fiber, which can help you stay full for longer. Dietary fiber helps prevent blood sugar spikes and dips, and may help lower cholesterol. It is also a boon for healthy digestion.

Your Imagination Is the Limit

How will you use Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread? Try it however you want for breakfast, snack, or dessert. We suggest it:

  • As a dip for apples, strawberries, or banana.
  • Spread onto waffles made with Low-Carb Baking Mix.
  • On Protein Bread or toast.
  • As a filling between Protein Pancakes.
  • Mixed into whole grain or Protein Oatmeal.
  • In a smoothie with banana and tofu.

Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread comes in creamy and crunchy varieties. Each jar is 11 or 16 ounces. You can also choose the Variety Pack with both types. However you choose to eat it, Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread can help keep your meal plan sweet and fun while you lose weight.

Heads up if you are trying to lose weight while eating great. A new protein bar is in the house. At least, Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars are now at The BariatricPal Store. They are the right size if you need something a little smaller, and they are so sweet without being sugary. Let us introduce you to Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars!

A Package of Whey Protein

Protein is a valuable commodity in weight loss. It delays hunger after a meal and supports lean muscle mass, but some weight loss surgery patients and other dieters are always on the hunt for more. Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars deliver a tidy 15 grams of protein. That is the amount in 2 ounces of a protein food such as tuna or chicken. What’s more is that the protein in Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars mostly comes from whey – a high-quality and highly digestible source.

Irresistible Flavors

Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars come in irresistible flavors. Thankfully, there is no need to resist them. So just what can you look forward to?

  • Chocolate Chip Caramel: milk chocolate chips and sweet caramel surrounded with a creamy chocolate coating made with real chocolate.
  • Caramel Peanut: seasoned peanuts and sweet caramel surrounded with a creamy chocolate coating made with real chocolate.

Are you having trouble deciding? Do you want them all? We understand! Actually, we predicted it! That’s why we put together the 9-bar Variety Pack with 3 of each flavor.

Sweeter without So Much Sugar

It is easier to enjoy a sweet treat when it does not come with a side of guilt. Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars have 1 cool gram of added sugars. They have 170 calories and 3 grams of net carbs, and 1 to 2 grams of fiber to increase fullness. That means your meal plan can probably handle them!

Guiltless Snack or Dessert

Detour Lower Sugar Snack Size Protein Bars are designed to be the right size for a snack or nutritious dessert. Keep them in your pantry, car, gym bag, and desk drawer for a boost any time.

Weight Loss During March Madness

Weight Loss During March Madness 0

How many March Madness games are you planning to watch? What will you eat during them? You might regret it if you do not think about it ahead of time, but you can come out on top if you plan ahead. The BariatricPal Store has a few ideas for your hoops viewing parties so you can enjoy great food and stay healthy.

Mac and Cheese

Serve a pot of mac and cheese, and your guests will love you forever. Make it with low-carb noodles, and they will never know it is healthy. NutriNoodles Shirataki Pasta has no carbs and almost no calories. Make an extra cheesy, but healthy, version of macaroni and cheese with your choice of ingredients such as cream cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, or your other favorites. Top with Pork Panko for a crunchy topping without carbs!

Chips and Dip

Admit it: a party is incomplete without chips and dip. That does not mean you need to eat starchy, fat-laden snacks at your party. Rather, try low-carb Protein Chips and Pretzels with healthier dips, such as salsa, guacamole, and hummus. You will skip most of the carbs and artery-clogging fats while chowing down with your friends.

Faux “Fried” Foods

Make your party the talk of the town with “fried” friends. Use Pork Rind Panko instead of high-carb breadcrumbs, then bake instead of fry your great foods. Try avocado sticks, zucchini fries, baked chicken, and panko mushrooms for hot apps to pass. Your friends, your taste buds, and your waistline will all thank you.

Chocolate Brownies

They may not be mandatory, but brownies can make a party seem perfect. Try Low-Carb Brownies with only 1 net carb each if you want to skip the guilt while you indulge. They have 5 grams of filling fiber, including prebiotic fiber. You can also try any of our Protein Cookies or bake your own goods with any of our Baking Mixes.

March Madness and other parties deserve a full selection of great-tasting foods, and there is no need for these parties to expand your waistline. Check The BariatricPal Store for low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting choices that you can serve to a crowd or keep for yourself.

Zero-Carb Bagels, Bread Pizza, and Pasta: A Dream Come True?

Zero-Carb Bagels, Bread Pizza, and Pasta: A Dream Come True? 0

What do you miss most on your weight loss or low-carb diet? Is it a toasted bagel for breakfast? A plate of pasta? What about a slice of pizza? Bring them all back with ThinSlim Zero Carb bread, bagels, and pasta! They have no carbs and tons of fiber, and they let you have the foods you love.

Bread and Buns

It is admirable if you are eating your burgers on lettuce leaves to avoid the carbs from the hamburger bun. Dipping celery sticks into peanut butter is a good diet move, too. But really, wouldn’t you rather have your juicy burger on a bun and your peanut butter in a sandwich? What about grilled cheese and tomato soup, toast with eggs, tuna on rye, and turkey sandwiches? Zero Carb Bread comes in Plain, Rye, Honey, and Everything flavors, plus Hot Dog and Hamburger Buns. Each slice of bread has 45 calories and 7 grams each of protein and fiber, and the buns have twice that amount.


What is your bagel fantasy? Cream cheese and smoked salmon? Ham, eggs, and cheese? Tuna salad? Zero Carb Bagels give you freedom with 90 calories, 14 grams of protein, 14 grams of fiber, and 0 grams net carbs each. Now you can have your Sesame, Plain, Cinnamon, and Everything bagels whenever you want and however you want, guilt-free.

Pizza Crust

When you say, “low-carb pizza,” do you mean a messy pile of cheese and sauce on a plate? You can do better with Zero Carb Pizza Crust! Each quarter of a pizza crust has 90 calories, 14 grams of protein, 14 grams of fiber, and 0 grams net carbs. In comparison, a slice of regular pizza crust has 30 grams of carbs. Now you can have low-carb pizza the traditional way, with tomato sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings, or you can use your imagination and try combinations such as diced tomatoes, feta cheese, and spinach, or olive oil, garlic, chicken, and artichokes.


That plate, bowl, or casserole of pasta can destroy your diet on the spot, unless you choose Zero Carb Pasta. It is not only free from net carbs, but is packed with fiber so you can feel fuller for longer. Use the Elbows to make mac and cheese, Rotini to make tuna noodle casserole, Fettuccini for chicken alfredo, and Penne for baked pasta with meat sauce – all with 30, 50, or more grams of carbs less than if you made them with regular pasta. Make your favorite pasta and noodle dishes, casseroles, and soups, guilt-free.

How Do We Do It?

The magic is in the ingredients, such as oat fiber, olive oil, flaxseed meal, and natural sugar-free sweeteners such as stevia. There is no refined white flour or other blood sugar-spiking ingredients. Knowing that the ingredients are wholesome can make the whole experience even sweeter!

Protein Cake Bites at The BariatricPal Store

Protein Cake Bites at The BariatricPal Store 0

Everyone can use more cake, but not the pounds it packs on. Protein Cake Bites solve the dilemma, offering the taste and satisfaction of cake while you lose weight. These low-carb treats are so delicious you won’t be able to believe that they can possibly be okay on your diet.

The serving size is 3 great-tasting cakes. Each cake has a whipped protein center and a thick frosting surrounding it. You can count on them being free from aspartame and trans fats, but having them turns any day into what feels like a glorious cheat day.

Low-Sugar Protein Source

Each serving of Protein Cake Bites has 20 grams of protein, and no more than 3 grams of sugar. That is quite a deal when compared to, say, a slice of red velvet cake or cheesecake with 4 grams of protein and 20 or 30 grams of sugar. Protein Cake Bites get their protein from high-quality sources such as whey protein isolate, and they have bone-building calcium. Each serving has no more than 250 calories, making them ideal as a small meal, large snack, or filling dessert.

Favorite Flavors

Protein Cake Bites come in nine great-tasting flavors to satisfy every sweet tooth.

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate with a peanut butter center and chocolate frosting.
  • Berry Cheesecake with a berry-flavored center and a sweet cheesy coating.
  • Birthday Cake to make every day seem like your birthday.
  • Chocolate Dipped Cherry kind of like a truffle but without the sugar.
  • Chocolate Mint with the satisfaction of the chocolate candy, minus the guilt.
  • Red Velvet with decadent cake and creamy frosting and no guilt.
  • Fruity Cereal to bring back the tastes and carefree days of childhood.
  • Chocolate Frosted Donut with chocolate and more chocolate, but no trans fats.
  • Cookies and Cream dotted with black and white goodness, just like the cookies you love.

Try them all to find your favorite flavor! You can buy single flavors in single bars or boxes of 12, or try a Variety Pack with the first 8 flavors.  

Cake All Day

Why save cake for special occasions? Why save it for dessert? You can have your cake whenever you want it. Eat these ready-to-eat Protein Cake Bites for breakfast at home or on the go, or have them for a morning of afternoon snack. Of course, they make a great dessert, too.

Try Protein Cake Bites by Optimum Nutrition if you like a sweet something, live for frosting, and want to lose weight. Being able to turn any day into a celebration may be just what you need to stay on your weight loss plan and love it.
