Bananas for Weight Loss!
At The BariatricPal Store, we love celebrations, and we have no problem making up for them if we missed them! Today, we’re marking National Banana Lover’s Day, which was officially August 27. We’re not marking it with starchy bananas, sugary smoothies, or fatty banana splits. We have some way better ideas for enjoying delicious bananas and losing weight at the same time.
Protein Shake or Pudding
A banana milkshake can cost you half a day’s worth of calories, a day’s worth of artery-clogging saturated fat, and four days’ worth of sugar. That is not the case with BariatricPal Tropical Banana Protein Shake or Pudding. It has the creamy banana goodness you are looking for, with only 100 calories, 5 grams of sugar, and no saturated fat. Just mix a single-serving packet into 4 to 8 ounces of water, and enjoy your 15 grams of protein and your essential vitamins and minerals.
Banana bread sounds like it could be healthy, but…don’t do it! It is a mixture of starchy and sugary carbs, baked with some calorie-adding fats. Why would you bother with banana bread when you could have BariatricPal Banana Bread Protein Bars? Each one has 3 grams of net carbs, 150 calories, 15 grams of protein, and even 3 grams of fiber! Bonus: a guilt-free chocolate drizzle and base.
Regular gelatin is a little deceptive. It seems like a “light” dessert, but it delivers a dose of sugar. Even sugar-free gelatin is lacking in the nutrient department, since it has no protein. BariatricPal Strawberry Banana Protein Gelatin has the same great flavor, but none of the sugar. Instead, you get 16 grams of protein to keep you full and nourished.
It’s never too late to celebrate a holiday, so dive right into National Banana Lover’s Day with fun and great-tasting protein products from The BariatricPal Store!
