Chocolate cravings can hit hard, and often at the expense of your weight loss. Chocolate bars, fudge brownies, hot cocoa, and other chocolate goodies can call your name loudly, but contribute unwanted calories, carbs, and fat without much protein. You might find yourself choosing between feeling deprived and indulging in something you know you shouldn’t.
If chocolate cravings have been getting in the way of your weight loss, you have come to the right place. The BariatricPal Store can help you lose weight while you enjoy chocolate every day or even more often if you like!
Hot Chocolate as You Like It
A cup of homemade hot cocoa or an order of hot chocolate from a café or coffee shop can bring minutes of pleasure. The price can be a sincere feeling of regret when you realize you just had 300 or more calories without much nutrition. You are bound to have a blood sugar spike, leading to more cravings and hunger when your blood sugar drops in an hour or so.
Chin up, though! You can have your hot chocolate just as you like it: calorie-controlled, nearly sugar-free, and rich in protein. Each serving of Protein Hot Cocoa has 80 calories and 15 grams of protein. Take a packet with you anywhere and all you have to do is add water to make your delicious cocoa. Customize your protein cocoa by choosing classic or a variety such as raspberry, marshmallow, Irish cream, or cinnamon.
Butter and sugar are two secrets to rich and great-tasting brownies, which is why brownies and weight loss usually do not go hand in hand. A bakery brownie can have 300 or 400 calories; order a brownie dessert at a restaurant, and you could set yourself back over 1,000 calories! There is no need to sabotage your diet like that when you can enjoy Protein Brownies instead.
Each one has 120 calories and 15 grams of protein for long-lasting satisfaction. You can make one at a time conveniently, since they come in single-serving packages and you only need to add water. It is a great-tasting dessert or snack that you can feel good about. For a little extra, serve it with berries or a couple tablespoons of sugar-free whipped topping.
Chocolate Pudding…or Pie
Chocolate pie seems so decadent that it could not possibly be on your weight loss meal plan. After all, it combines a creamy, sweet chocolate filling with a flaky pie crust. Those are components not known for their healthy properties! BariatricPal Double Chocolate Protein Pudding can put you on the right path.
Just mix a packet with 4 ounces of cold water, and your filling is already ready. It delivers 15 grams of protein and only 80 calories, not to mention calcium and iron. Eat the pudding on its own, or make it a truly decadent and guilt-free dessert with pie crust made from Carbquick Baking Mix. You will not even be tempted to take a second or third helping since the pudding comes in single serving packets.
Weight loss should be fun and delicious, and life should be filled with chocolate. That is why you can count on The BariatricPal Store for a variety of chocolate protein snacks that are low-carb and low-calorie.
