Back on Track after Thanksgiving – You Can Do It!
Thanksgiving was a week ago, but the effects may still be present. To begin with, Thanksgiving itself may not have gone exactly as planned. Instead of the few bites of turkey, some salad, and some roasted root vegetables that you had planned to eat, the reality may have looked a lot more like a traditional Thanksgiving feast, with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potato casserole, and pumpkin pie to finish.
As if that weren’t bad enough, the leftovers can kick in afterwards. A nibble of pecan pie, a spoonful of green bean casserole…and the weekend ends before your Thanksgiving feast does! You’re not alone.
If you are looking for a way to get right back on track, The BariatricPal Store has what you need. Our ideas are easy, stress-free, and, of course, good for the waistline!
Try a Back-on-Track Diet
Thanksgiving can leave you tired and stressed, without much time to cook healthy or even plan meals. It may be time to take a look at our Back-on-Track Diet. We have a week’s worth of low-calorie, high-protein menus packed with tasty and easy meals and snacks.
Go to our Meal Plans section for more meal plans, plus tips and ideas for healthy meals and snacks at different calorie levels. Weight loss is easier when all you have to do is follow the plan!
Get Out of the Kitchen
After the hustle and bustle of preparing for and cleaning up from Thanksgiving, cooking may be the last thing you feel like doing. We say: why bother cooking?
Getting away from long hours in kitchen is a bad thing if you are turning to take-out and delivery, but it is a great thing if you are turning to instant Protein Entrees. These high-protein, reduced-carb options are great-tasting and ready in minutes, so you can have a stress-free, guilt-free meal anytime. Try comfort food such as Turkey Chili or Beef Pot Roast with Gravy, ethnic-inspired meals such as Chicken Enchilada Verde or Spicy Oriental Chicken, or any of our low-carb Protein Pasta offerings.
It may be easier than you think to get back on track and get the scale moving in the right direction. Besides high-protein, calorie-controlled foods and snacks, The BariatricPal Store has meal plans and tips to get you back on the right foot.
