Glazed Doughnuts for Weight Loss at The BariatricPal Store 0
Today is another great day for weight loss: it is National Glazed Doughnut Day. Can’t you just smell those freshly baked doughnuts? Can’t you imagine biting into one and tasting its soft sweetness? Can’t you just feel them on your hips for the next month?
No! Not with OhYeah! ONE Protein Bar - Maple Glazed Doughnut! You can have your doughnut and lose weight, too. Savor the doughnut-flavored interior with a sweet maple glaze coating as you stick to your diet. What a way to celebrate this national holiday!
Farewell to Grease and Sugar
A glazed doughnut can get about half of its calories from unhealthy fats used in frying. It also piles on about half of the daily maximum amount of added sugars plus a scoop of refined starches, too. OhYeah! ONE Protein Bar - Maple Glazed Doughnut has no trans fat and 1 sweet gram of sugar.
With all that talk about fat, sugar, and starch, what is missing from regular glazed doughnuts? They are low in protein, which can lead to a blood sugar roller coaster and mid-morning hunger pangs that can leave you running for another sugary, fatty treat. Not so with OhYeah! ONE Protein Bars - Maple Glazed Doughnut with 20 grams of protein each, including from whey protein.
Filling Fiber and Low Net Carbs
Do you need another filling nutrient and another blood sugar stabilizer? OhYeah! ONE Protein Bar - Maple Glazed Doughnut has 10 grams of dietary fiber, which delays hunger and moderates blood sugar. Plus, the bar has only 3 grams of net carbs.
Your All-Day, Any Day Companion
Start your day off with a OhYeah! ONE Protein Bar - Maple Glazed Doughnut and pack a few for later. They make a great-tasting, convenient, portable snack or meal replacement. Try them before or after a workout for lasting energy and efficient muscle recovery.

Time-Out from Holiday Stress, Weight Loss Included 0
'Tis the season. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, to spread holiday cheer, to buy and wrap gifts, to attend holiday programs, and to continue family traditions, all while keeping up with your regular duties, such as work, school, family, and healthy living, of course.
‘Tis the season, indeed. Do you need a break? Here is why stress is harmful and ways you can lower your stress to stay on your weight loss path.
Risks of Stress
Stress gets to you. The dangers of stress are not just in your head. They are real. Too much stress can make you anxious and jittery. It can keep you from sleeping and bump up your blood sugar. It can interfere with concentration, so you have trouble getting to the gym and keeping your resolve to say no to sugar and carbs. Is this happening to you?
Where Is Stress Coming from?
The stress that can be harmful is not only from obvious, overwhelming circumstances such as losing a job or getting into a bad argument with a family member. Harmful stress can come from being too busy, not getting enough sleep, and feeling pressure to please others. Sound familiar?
Nutrients for Stress
Many vitamins and minerals are necessary to properly manage stress, so taking a Multivitamin and Mineral supplement is a good insurance policy against deficiencies. Some nutrients are more closely tied to stress and are commonly deficient, and you may want to look into a product with extra magnesium and calcium to help relax your mind and muscles.
Sharpen Your Focus
You may need laser focus to accomplish all your tasks and stay on track with your diet. For help, turn to Zen Essential Oil Infused Lip Balm. It soothes and prevents parched, chapped lips, which is already a boon after weight loss surgery or during the cold, dry winter months. This lip balm has peppermint and lavender oils to help you focus better while you stay relaxed and calm. By the way, this one is a great stocking stuffer.
A Hot Sip
Millie’s Sipping Broth was not specifically designed for this time of year, but it might as well have been. Curling up with a hot drink is itself comforting and it forces you to take some time for yourself. These steepable bags can rejuvenate you and boost focus with their base of green tea and flavors such as Curry Spice, Spicy Tortilla, Thai Lemongrass, Tomato Basil, Delight Pho, and Smoky Facon. Each flavor is gluten-free and vegan and is available in a 3-pack, 9-pack, or as part of the Variety Pack.
A Hearty Instant Meal
So much is going on these days that it can be hard to get a good lunch during a busy day or a healthy dinner at the end of a long day. An Instant Protein Entrée can give you the weight loss meal you need, while saving valuable time and effort to reduce stress. They can keep you from feeling deprived when you have high-protein, low-carb options such as Turkey Chili, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and Gravy with Beef Pot Roast.
A bit of a break can make the difference between staying on track and regretting your choices, so give yourself one!
Our Holiday Gift to You: Our Faves 0
The BariatricPal Store is here to help you achieve your weight loss goals. We are always flattered when you ask us for our opinions on the best products. What is trending? What is shockingly delicious? Where can you get the best junk food subs? Now that the holidays are upon us, it seems like a good opportunity to highlight some recent store faves.
Top Customer Pick:
The customer is always right, so let’s start with one of our customer’s top picks. We are proud to note that our customers are health-conscious with their pick of Calcium Citrate Chewy Bites. Each bite has 500 mg of calcium and 500 IU of vitamin D3 to support strong bones and a healthy immune system. They come in delicious flavors, including Chocolate, Caramel, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Strawberry, Coconut, Raspberry, Lemon, and Pineapple Mango. Each bag has 90 individually-wrapped chews.
Also among the Top 50 products are BariatricPal Multivitamin One capsules, BariatricPal Multivitamin and Meal Replacement powders, Protein Bars, Protein Shakes, and Protein Oatmeal.
Best “Too Good to Be True:” Chocolate Peanut Butter
Peanut butter and chocolate are two of life’s greatest treats. Together, they are one of life’s best pairs, until you consider their sugar and fat. Peanut butter chocolate candies can have over a day’s worth of sugar and saturated fat in a small serving, without comparable amounts of protein to redeem them. Life without them can make your diet intolerable, so we say…leave them in!
Nuts ‘n’ More Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread is our answer to your cravings. It has 11 grams of protein and only 4 grams of sugar, so you can count on it to stave off hunger for hours without causing a blood sugar spike. It contains peanuts, dark chocolate, and additional healthful ingredients such as flaxseed. Eat it alone or with an apple or in oatmeal, and try our other varieties, such as Chocolate and regular Almond Butter, Banana Nut, Birthday Cake, Cookie Dough, and way more.
Biggest Sigh of Relief: Your Choice of Coffee
Coffee is an extra pleasure for some, and a necessity for others. It can be the highlight of the day, so what happens if your regular coffee is not cutting it anymore? After weight loss surgery or on some diets, you may need to cut back on sugar, eliminate caffeine, reduce acid, and bump up protein.
The BariatricPal Store has all kinds of Coffee Products to meet your specific needs
- Regular and Decaffeinated.
- Protein Powder for hot protein drinks and thick protein shakes.
- Whole Bean and Single Serve K Cups.
- Vanilla, Mocha, Caramel, Regular and Vanilla sCappuccino, and more flavors.
Best Seasonal Swap: Pumpkin Spice Latte
The annual debut of the pumpkin spice latte and similar coffee drinks can present a nearly existential crisis. To indulge, or not to indulge? To savor the spicy cinnamon, sweet pumpkin, and hot coffee, or to skip the sugar and calories?
Pumpkin Spice Latte lets you avoid the tough choices. It has 90 calories, 4 grams of sugar, and 15 grams of protein, plus real cinnamon and coffee. You can have it in minutes just by mixing it with hot water, so there is no temptation to run down the street to the coffee shop for a sugary version. Each box has 7 single-serving packets.
We hope you love these ideas! This is only a small sampling of our favorites, and we hope you will come by the store to see what else may strike your fancy as you lose weight.
Holiday Cheer with No Weight Gain Fear 0
The holiday season is in full force. That means…it’s time to lose weight! Well, it also means it is time to eat great. Christmas cookies, cranberries, gingerbread, pumpkin spice latte, and hot chocolate: yes to all! Keep reading to find out how you can enjoy your favorite holiday fare without weight gain, and stop by The BariatricPal Store to discover more holiday treats.
Admittedly, our cookies do not have fancy names like pfeffernusse and pizzelle. They also do not have the gobs of sugar and fat you would expect from delicious cookies. You will do much better to satisfy your need to nibble with Protein Cookies instead. Just like Christmas cookies, they taste great and come with flavors ranging from cinnamon and peanut butter to chocolate and almond. Unlike regular Christmas cookies, they are high in protein and low in sugar.
Cranberries seem to pop up only at this time of year. That can be a blessing if you tend to eat cranberries in the traditional way: doused with sugar. On the other hand, they taste so good and, without added sugar, are so good for you. Instead of cranberry sauce (50 grams of sugar per half-cup) or cranberry cookies (25 grams of sugar each), try any of our low-carb Cranberry Treats from Cranberry Lemon Protein Cookies and Bison Bacon Cranberry Epic Bars to Green Tea and Cranberry Protein Fruit Concentrates and Turkey Cranberry Sage snack strips.
Spicy gingerbread captures the essence of the season, especially when you create a beautiful gingerbread man cookie, bake a festive gingerbread cake, or build a gingerbread house. You’ll do better if you can think of decorated gingerbread as nothing more than decoration, and come to The BariatricPal Store when you want to eat Gingerbread. We not only have Protein Gingerbread Cake Mix that you can bake fresh, but also Gingerbread-Scented Organic Spray-On Spice.
The holidays should be about spending time with loved ones. If you are lucky, your time together includes sipping on something sweet, hot, and seasonal. Less lucky is when you sip on full-sugar hot chocolate or pumpkin spice lattes. When you opt to get the chocolate and pumpkin spice flavors you love from Protein Hot Drinks, you can skip the sugar and count on up to 15 grams of protein in 80 to 100 calories. Hot Cocoa variations include Classic, Marshmallow, Mint, Mocha, and more.
This holiday season, lose weight and love your food. There’s no reason to deprive yourself. Just make smart choices, enjoy your favorite flavors, and feel proud when you step on the scale. The BariatricPal Store is here to help.
