Protein Bars for Holiday Season Weight Loss

Protein Bars for Holiday Season Weight Loss

Alex Brecher

Christmas is less than two weeks away, and New Year’s follows in another week. The holiday season is in full swing, and so is the holiday eating season. As Christmas cookies, fudge, candies, and other baked goods come parading by, Protein Bars at The BariatricPal Store may be able to let you satisfy your cravings and keep your weight loss on track. Here is why they can work and how you can use them to your advantage.

Protein without Sugar 

Protein Bars from The BariatricPal Store can give you a sweet taste, but with a dose of protein and without a load of sugar. Swap a Protein Bar for, as an example, a chocolate chip brownie, and you could get an extra 10 to 15 grams of protein and save over 20 grams of sugar. That is important, since protein helps stave off hunger, while sugar increases blood sugar swings and sugar cravings. 

Flavors to Satisfy

There is at least one kind of Protein Bar at The BariatricPal Store to match whatever craving you are having or temptation you may be facing. Just to start with, there are all kinds of chocolate options, such as dark, white, and milk, and as chewy protein cores, chocolate chips, and chocolate coatings.

Chocolate is only the beginning. Protein Bars can have caramel, peanuts and peanut butter, almonds, and creamy, crispy, and chewy options. Flavor profiles may include vanilla, coconut, lemon, strawberry,, cinnamon, oatmeal, marshmallow, and pretzels, to name just a few. In short, there is no need to cave into temptations for unhealthy treats when Protein Bars offer the same flavors without damaging your resolve or waistline.

A Healthy Shopping Snack Alternative

Is holiday shopping taking over for a while? Pack some Protein Bars, and you can avoid the mall food court. Your shopping trips may be a lot healthier when you choose a 150 to 200-calorie bar instead of pizza, a sandwich, fried rice, a cinnamon roll, or a soft pretzel for 400 to 900 calories and very little nutrition. Protein Bars even come in meat-flavored choices if you are craving something savory.

Stash a Few

Workplace goodies are, well, not very good if you are watching what you eat. Protein Bars can bail you out when you store some in your desk drawer. Just grab one instead of whatever your generous colleagues are offering, and you can stay on track. Unlike those unending platters of Christmas cookies and bottomless bowls of Christmas candy, Protein Bars are portion-controlled so you can eat the whole thing without worry.

You hear a lot about Protein Bars, and they really can live up to their reputation. Aside from offering tons of high-quality protein from sources such as whey, and being low in sugar and excess carbs, Protein Bars can be tasty enough to give satisfaction instead of unhealthy, high-calorie baked goods and other seasonal fare. The BariatricPal Store is here for you this holiday season to help you meet your weight loss goals!
