Losing Weight on a Gluten-Free Diet
These days, a gluten-free seems to be for everyone, not just for the few people with celiac disease or wheat allergies. Some people claim that a gluten-free diet makes them feel better and gives them more energy. In fact, if you’re convinced a gluten-free diet is for you, there’s just one problem: it’s restrictive!
You may expect to need say good-bye to taste and hello to boredom and inconvenience when you decide to lose weight the gluten-free way, but that’s simply not the case! With our range of gluten-free protein meals and snacks, you can keep losing weight and loving your gluten-free diet.
Gluten-Free, Low-Carb Cereals
When you’re dieting, breakfast can be a stark reminder that you’re on a limited diet. It doesn’t need to be, though. Start the day off on a positive note with a delicious breakfast that fuels you for the morning, and your entire weight loss plan will be easier to stomach.
No matter how restrictive your diet, there’s always room for a serving of Gluten-Free Protein Cereal with 120 calories and 12 grams of protein. It’s available in honey almond, apple cinnamon, and French vanilla flavors. They’re in single-serving packs so you can grab one on your way out the door, or if you have a few minutes, you can sit down to mix your cereal with some yogurt or cottage cheese.
You know one of the keys to weight loss is keeping your metabolism up and your hunger down. Protein snacks can help, and we have you covered. Reach for smart snacks like gluten-free Protein Pretzels and Chips, as well as low-sugar Protein Cookies to keep you on the right foot when it comes to the scale.
Great-Tasting, Quick Meals
Sometimes, going gluten-free can be even more unfair because it can demand your time. You can easily be stuck in the kitchen if you want to be sure of getting a truly healthy gluten-free meal that actually tastes good. We feel your pain, and we think we have a solution to that particular problem!
Just opt for any of our gluten-free meal starters, such as Fettucini Protein Pasta with 110 calories and 20 grams of protein. You can pair it with any of our pasta sauce flavor packs, and add your favorite veggies and lean proteins for a complete, flavorful, and filling meal in minutes. Or, go for comforting and hearty by starting with a gluten-free Protein Soup or Broth and making it chunky and satisfying with add-ins such as beans, veggies, and diced chicken.
Don’t Forget Dessert
Many standard desserts are completely off limits if you’re serious about weight loss. Gluten-free versions are often available, but they can taste “off” and worse, be just as high in calories, carbs, and sugar as the real thing. Not so with our all-star line-up. For example, BariatricPal Protein Brownies are delicious straight from the oven or microwave, and each serving has only 120 calories, 15 grams total carbs (including 5 grams of fiber), and 5 grams of sugar, while delivering 15 grams of protein.
If you’re going gluten-free – or staying gluten-free – as you lose weight, you don’t have to give up all of your favorite flavors. The BariatricPal Store has meal and snack solutions that can keep the scale going down without compromising on taste. You can check out our entire line of gluten-free products here! Note that some have been processed on equipment that also processes wheat, and may not be suitable for individuals with severe gluten sensitivity.
