Opening Day at the Ballpark: Weight Loss for the Armchair Athlete

Abegail Fernandez

Take heart if you didn’t score tickets to opening day at the ballpark to root for the home team in person. In fact, you may actually have something extra to cheer about. When you watch the game at home, you get to choose your own concessions. That means weight loss can remain your top priority even while you enjoy ballpark-inspired treats.


Live it up on Opening Day with nachos, but not the kind that find your hips as easily as your ace finds the strike zone. Start with your favorite flavor Protein Chips with up to 15 grams of protein per serving. Then smother them with a generous amount of easy-to-make low-fat Cheese Sauce. Live it up by making them supreme with lean ground turkey, salsa, and diced tomatoes. It is a lead-off home run!

Meat Snacks

Care for a hot dog and a beer? Sure, if you want nitrates, blood sugar-boosting carbs, and countless calories without nutrients. What about chowing down on an all-natural meat snack instead? They’re low-carb, satisfyingly chewy, and made of identifiable meats such as turkey, ostrich, or elk rather than mystery meat in your standard hot dogs.

Caramel and Peanuts

You are not alone if a baseball game does not feel right without caramel and peanuts. It will be easier to give up the sugar and carbs in the classic caramel coated popcorn and peanuts when you know you can fit the same flavors into your diet with Peanut and Caramel Protein Puffs Snack. It has 150 calories and 15 grams of protein per serving, and less than half the sugar as the real thing. You can feel safer eating the whole bag since each packet contains only a single serving.

Iced Tea

What is going to wash down your healthy concessions? Do not cave into sweetened iced tea with 75 grams of sugar! Opt instead for Raspberry Protein Tea. With zero sugar and zero carbs, there’s nothing to feel guilty about. Its 15 grams of protein can keep you full during extra innings, too. Check out our other teas, too!

This season, keep the seventh-inning stretch and the rest of the game from wrecking your diet. Instead, choose right and lose weight. Batter up!
