Cream of Mushroom Soup for Weight Loss

Cream of Mushroom Soup for Weight Loss 0

Some people think weight loss requires deprivation, but we think the opposite! Take cream of mushroom soup, for example. A bowl can have 300 calories and a day’s worth of saturated fat, but The BariatricPal Store has Cream of Mushroom Protein Soup that fits into your diet whether you are on a liquid pre-op, post-op, or rapid weight loss diet, or you need filling and great-tasting meals in a jif.

Plain and Perfect

Just add water and use the microwave or stovetop, and you can have lunch or a snack in minutes. BariatricPal Cream of Mushroom Protein Soup has 7 single-serving packets per box, so no need to measure your portions, and each one easily fits into your diet with 80 calories and 15 satisfying grams of protein.

A Satisfying Twist or Two

You can take your bowl of soup to the next level with easy recipes, such as Cream of Mushroom Super Soup with cottage cheese, veggies, and seasonings, or Super Creamy Mushroom Soup with milk and extra mushrooms. Feel free to get creative by adding your own favorite ingredients, such as cooked diced asparagus, turkey meatballs, or beef cubes and cooked barley.

The Return of Comfort Food

Cream of mushroom soup is an ingredient in comfort food that is known for being unhealthy. Turn that around with Cream of Mushroom Protein Soup! It can be your inspiration for bringing back comfort food in a healthy form. For example, use it in green bean casserole topped with crushed White Cheddar Protein Crisps, or knock yourself out with Protein Pasta and a creamy sauce with Cream of Mushroom Protein Soup, mixed veggies, and low-fat parmesan cheese. Delish!

Ingredients for Satisfaction and Weight Loss in Pizza Protein Potato Chips 0

What makes weight loss so hard? It can be hunger pangs, feelings of deprivation, and the need to prepare complicated diet foods. The BariatricPal Store understands, and offers you all kinds of options to overcome these obstacles. BariatricPal Pizza Protein Potato Chips are an example of a great-tasting, hunger-suppressing, diet-friendly food that could make you fall in love.

Protein Boost…in Potatoes?

A protein boost can be what you need to get through the afternoon, and BariatricPal Pizza Protein Potato Chips deliver. Each serving has 10 grams of protein to slow digestion and keep you going for hours. They contain high-quality, plant-based soy protein. Have a bag on its own or turn your pizza chips into a meal with pureed broccoli as a dip plus some cheese.

Fiber Filled Snack

The average American gets only half of recommended amounts of fiber. Cutting yourself short can leave you hungry, not to mention hurt your blood sugar and increase cravings. Regular potato chips are no health food, but BariatricPal Pizza Protein Potato Chips have 5 grams of fiber, or 25 percent of the daily value. That is more than the amount in a serving of most fruit or vegetables.

Craveable Crunch

Nutrition is nice, but what about taste? BariatricPal Pizza Protein Potato Chips deliver! They have a topping made up of a cheesy blend that includes real cheddar and romano cheese, along with a tomato-based blend that includes real spices. Get your fix of crunch and pizza flavor with an entire bag of BariatricPal Pizza Protein Potato Chips for only 120 calories and no guilt.

The Protein Snack that Works for You

Each ounce of Meat Snacks has no more than 90 calories, and at least 14 grams of protein. They are low in sugar and total carbs. You can take them anywhere with you; they make great travel companions on planes and in cars, and are light protein sources to carry on hikes. You can also put them in your lunch bag. Meat Snacks are even great in recipes; sprinkle pieces on salads, or cook pieces into spaghetti sauce for Protein Pasta    .

Beyond Beef

There is nothing wrong with beef jerky, but why not branch out a little? Try chicken and turkey jerky, or check out our blends with beef and some more exotic choices, including ostrich and elk. These meats are natural sources of nutrients including highly absorbable iron, zinc, and B vitamins.

The Flavors You Love

There’s a Meat Snack to fit your mood. Original and Natural flavors are meaty and traditional, while Teriyaki and Maple Brown Sugar give you a sweet and savory mixture. Applewood is a smoky, hearty choice, while Habanero and Spicy give you some heat in every bite. Also try Pepper and Buffalo Wing flavors.

All-Natural Means Nitrate-Free

It’s not all about the carbs and calories. Other health factors are important, too. Consider nitrates, which are known to cause cancer. They are in many processed meat products, including many brands of jerky. Not so when you choose all-natural jerky from The BariatricPal Store.

Tools for Accurate Measurement and Better Weight Loss

Tools for Accurate Measurement and Better Weight Loss 0

There are plenty of secrets to weight loss. One of them is measurement. “Guesstimate” your food portions, protein intake, and body weight wrong, and you might be disappointed in your results. Measure accurately, and you cannot help but get the weight loss results you deserve and expect. Here are some tools you can find to help you at The BariatricPal Store.

Body Scales

It’s hard to stay motivated when you are not even sure if your scale is telling you your correct weight. Keep guessing out of the equation when you select from our range of Body Scales with accuracy to within 0.1kg (0.2lb). Our smart scales can synch with favorite health and weight loss apps for easier tracking. Other features to check for are extra wide scales, high weight capacity scales, and measurements of body fat, body protein, bone mass, and muscle.

Food Scales

Weighing your food is the way to make servings the right size, so you want the right tool for the job. Check our selection of Food and Kitchen Scales for high-quality, easy-to-use choices that can keep you on track. They are easy to use and come in increments of 1 gram for close monitoring of what you eat. Also look for features such as Bluetooth connectivity for easy synching to your iPhone or Android smartphone.

Portion Control Tools

Low-tech can still be highly useful, as you will see with our Portion Control Tools. Measuring spoons can be your best allies when cooking as well as when serving peanut butter or other condiments. Try portion control plates to help you get the right proportions of proteins, vegetables, starches, and more when serving yourself, and use shaker bottles to help you get enough protein and fluids.

Information is critical when you want results, and measurements are the information you need for weight loss. Our tools can help you measure the food you take in and your own body weight so you can stay motivated and right on top of your weight loss.
