Getting Ready for Summer at The BariatricPal Store
Winter may have just ended, but summer is right around the corner. That means it’s bikini season. Are you ready? Do you have a plan for losing a healthy amount of weight over the coming weeks and months so you can hit the beach with everyone else?
Okay, you may not be planning to parade around in a bikini, but you still want to look your best as you come out from underneath the bulky winter coats and sweaters. Don’t worry if you aren’t quite there yet. You don’t have to choose between weight loss and delicious foods. The BariatricPal Store delivers delicious foods that help you lose weight! Here are some of our suggestions for your bikini-ready spring menu.
Lucky for you, The BariatricPal Store has you covered for most important meal of the day. You can choose cereal, eggs, and oatmeal – all low-carb, low-cal, high-protein, and individually packaged. We’re into Protein Pancakes right now – how can you resist Golden, Blueberry, or Chocolate Chip Pancakes for 110 calories and 15 grams of protein? They’re ready in minutes, so there’s no excuse to skip breakfast. Just think of it as revving up your metabolism for a weight loss-fantastic day.
Who has time to worry about losing weight at lunch? You do! Grab a packet of Protein Soup and you’ll be eating a low-cal treat in minutes. Each packet has about 90 to 100 calories and 15 grams of protein. Choose favorite flavors like Broccoli and Cheddar, Cream of Vegetable, Cream of Mushroom, Tomato, Chicken Noodle, and Beef with Pasta. You can always add veggies to your weight loss soup for an extra bang.
Which snacks don’t we love? Not many, that’s for sure! And The BariatricPal Store has a snack to satisfy every craving. Want a crunch? Try Protein Pretzels or Chips. Get cheesy with Moon Cheese in cheddar, Gouda, or pepper Jack, or let your inner carnivore take over with some Turkey, Elk, or Beef Jerky. Choose a Protein Bar instead, and you can choose from chocolate, peanut, nut, cinnamon, caramel, lemon, and more flavors.
Remember when you could finish off the day with spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, enchiladas, chili, and chicken and rice stir fry? You still can. BariatricPal Protein Entrees include your favorite pasta and other dishes, without the calories and carbs. They’re individually portioned and ready in minutes to make losing weight easy.
We believe dessert is a universal human right. You shouldn’t have to skip dessert just because you’re losing weight. End the day with a ready-in-minutes Chocolate or Cheesecake Protein Cake, or opt instead for Low-Carb Protein Cookies. Or, sip on some Protein Hot Cocoa, Cappuccino, or Tea to wind down.
Stick to your healthy, low-calorie meals, and you’ll be looking your best this summer. You’ll also be feeling better the longer you eat healthy. It may be time to start planning for the best summer of your life!
