Satisfying Cravings the Healthy and Guilt-Free Way
Don't we all have those irresistible cravings that seem to sabotage our efforts to lose weight? Well, it's time to change that mindset. At BariatricPal, we believe that you can satisfy your cravings while still achieving your weight loss goals. We understand that allowing yourself to enjoy the taste or texture of a treat can be a powerful reminder that you can conquer any challenge. So, here are some guilt-free "craveables" to consider when you feel like your diet is dragging you down.
Many of us are aware of the sheer joy that chocolate brings to life. We're also familiar with some concerning statistics, such as a chocolate bar containing 35 grams of sugar, a milkshake packing anywhere from 500 to 1000 calories, and a noticeable absence of protein. Consuming these treats can easily lead to a sugar rush and a disappointing step on the scale.
But fear not, because BariatricPal has an array of delectable chocolate options to the rescue. You can take your pick from a variety of bars like Rockie Road, Chocolate Crisp, and Triple Chocolate, indulge in a satisfying and velvety Hot Chocolate, relish the thickness and creaminess of Chocolate Shakes, and even savor some scrumptious Chocolate Chip Cookies. The best part? They're all rich in protein, light on sugar, and calorie-conscious enough to seamlessly integrate into any diet plan.
For those prone to sitting down with a box of cereal and devouring it all, cereal can be a tempting trigger food. Fortunately, you can indulge guilt-free in an entire serving of BariatricPal Protein Cereal, as it clocks in at under 130 calories while offering a generous 10 to 15 grams of protein. You have the choice of classic flavors like Honey Nut, Cinnamon Crunch, and Cinnamon Vanilla.
These crispy snacks can be deceptive with their hidden carbs and fat. It's problematic if you find it hard to stop munching until the entire bag is empty. However, worry not. You can satisfy your craving with favorite flavors such as Sour Cream and Onion, BBQ, and Pizza. The best part? The serving size is the whole bag, so there's no need to resist.
Don't dismiss Mexican flavors as off-limits when you're on a weight loss journey. Instead of heading to your local Tex-Mex restaurant, consider your pantry. Imagine savoring Chicken Enchilada Verde with Corn and Beans within minutes – a delightful duo of enchiladas stuffed with well-seasoned chicken and smothered in a hearty chile and corn sauce. In addition to the protein, you'll also get a healthy dose of fiber to keep you feeling full for hours.
Pasta is notorious for its negative impact on weight loss diets due to its tendency to spike blood sugar and lead to cravings. However, thanks to BariatricPal, pasta can now be a positive addition to your diet. It's high in protein and low in carbs, helping your body shed those pounds. You can enjoy options like Fettucine Alfredo, Spaghetti Bolognese, or Gluten-Free Pasta without guilt.
At BariatricPal, we believe that you can curb your cravings guilt-free. Embrace smart choices, incorporate protein-packed treats, practice mindful portion control, indulge in healthy snacks, and celebrate your progress. Remember, it's about finding a balance that supports your weight loss journey while still enjoying the flavors and textures you love. So go ahead and satisfy your cravings. You deserve it!
