What’s not to love about dieting? It is great, except for the way it makes you skip the junk food. What’s not to love about junk food? It is also great, except for the way it makes you look, and the way it makes you feel. We have a better idea! Lose weight and eat junk food! Inspired by National Junk Food Day on July 21, we have some suggestions for getting your fix while you shrink your waistline. Warning: you might get addicted to dieting.

Hearty Helpings

We have you covered whether you are into sugary cereal for breakfast, nachos for lunch, or fried chicken for dinner. All of our Protein Cereals are low-carb and calorie-controlled to get your day off to a good start, and flavors such as chocolate, cinnamon vanilla, and honey nut should satisfy. Kill two birds with one stone with Nacho Cheese Pasta so you can have both the cheesy goodness of nachos and the satisfaction of pasta. For dinner, skip the trans fat and carbs, and whip up some easy peasy Mock Fried Chicken instead.

Crunchy Cravings

Crunchy snacks are so much more enjoyable when they do not include guilt. Thankfully that is possible at The BariatricPal Store. Grab a bag of Protein Potato Chips in classic flavors such as classic ranch, salt and vinegar, barbecue, and more, or keep your blood sugar stable and your hunger at bay instead with low-carb Protein Pretzels.

Delightful Desserts

What do you do when your sweet tooth calls out for a candy bar, cookies, cake, or chocolate? Give in, of course! Try a Protein Bar with flavor choices including nutty, chocolate, lemon, cinnamon, caramel, coconut, and, more, or go for a Protein Chocolate Bar to get that milk, dark, or white chocolate taste. Shop for chocolate chip, oatmeal, and more Protein Cookies, or opt for chocolate or cheesecake Protein Cakes. For more, browse our Dessert Recipes.

Sweet Sips

There must be something between boring water and sugary sodas, right? Of course! Try water enhancers such as low-calorie alternatives to plain water to get a sweet, fruity taste. You can go big with all sorts of floats, smoothies, and all sorts of other Beverage Recipes. And, if you are missing your daily coffee drink, get more protein and less sugar with Protein Hot Drinks such as cocoa and cappuccino.

There are all kinds of ways to include great-tasting treats in your diet, and these are just a few. Stop by The BariatricPal Store for more and see how much fun losing weight can be!
