Spooky Good Weight Loss Treats at The BariatricPal Store
Halloween is around the corner, so weight loss cannot be far behind. All those sweet, delicious candy-flavored favorites deliver protein without sugar, so this is the ideal holiday for weight loss. How could you possibly lose? The only way is if you choose candies from the wrong store. Go with The BariatricPal Store’s selection, and you can be sure each choice has been evaluated for taste and weight loss nutrition.
Do you remember when the “good houses” were the ones that gave chocolate bars when you were trick-or-treating? Consider The BariatricPal Store one of the “good houses,” since it has Chocolate Bars in every guise – dark, milk, and plain, with almonds, peanut butter, and caramel, and with benefits such as protein, low-sugar, and calcium.
Ooey, gooey marshmallow treats are a great choice if you want to go back to your childhood fantasy land. The only problem is that their nutritional facts – such as 40 grams of sugar and starch per cup – will not let you go back to those carefree days, unless you choose protein-packed treats such as Marshmallow Protein Bars.
Each bar has 15 grams of protein and less than half the carbs as a cup of marshmallows. They have a dark chocolate crispy cookie topped with gooey marshmallow, all surrounded by dark chocolate. Distinctly missing? A cloak of guilt. You can use them as a snack or meal with a full set of vitamins and minerals.
For some kids, one thrill of Halloween is the chance to get as much sugar as fast as possible. Fruity gummies are a good way to do that, since an ounce has 17 grams of sugar and no protein or fat to slow the direct trip to your bloodstream.
Give into the kid in you, a little more responsibly, with Fruity Protein Gummies. They have the sweet, fruity taste you love, but with nutrition for your grown-up self. Each package has 180 calories and 10 grams of protein, with 1 cool gram of sugar. To make them even more filling, they have an unheard-of 27 grams of fiber. Try Papaya, Fantastic Fruit, Wild Berry, Kiwi, and Banana flavors.
Peanut Butter Cups
Peanut butter cups are to die for, literally, if you choose regular ones. A standard package of 2 cups can have 21 grams of sugar, which is nearly your day’s allotment. That’s a good way to drive up your blood sugar levels and increase cravings, which of course makes weight loss nearly impossible.
Chocorite Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cups have only 35 calories per piece, or 100 calories per package. They have 7 grams of fiber to help fill you up. That is a great way to satisfy that irresistible craving for sweet, rich chocolate and creamy, salty peanut butter.
