Extra Weight Loss on International No-Diet Day 0
May 6 is International No-Diet Day, but there is no dilemma. You do not need to choose between eating something satisfying and eating something healthy. To celebrate this day, we have gathered a few of our favorite no-diet diet products; that is, these are the store products that taste and feel indulgent, but are low-carb, low-sugar, high-protein, and diet-friendly.
Chocolate (and More Chocolate)
Chocolate is good, but simple “chocolate” is not enough for a No-Diet celebration. Bump it up a couple of notches with a Frosted Chocolate Fudge Brownie. This baked square is a brownie (chocolate) with chocolate chips (more chocolate) and drizzled icing (chocolate icing on the chocolate cake!). The single-serve package is ready to eat and has 15 grams of protein and only 5 grams of sugar. You can have it for breakfast with cream cheese or yogurt, or as a snack or dessert. Each box contains 7 servings.
Bacon. Is. Good. The effects of bacon are bad, at least when talking about weight. Take the good and leave the bad with an Epic Smoked Maple Bacon bar. The bars have smoky, uncured bacon and real maple sugar, but only 150 calories. Each bar has 15 grams of protein to satisfy hunger as it satisfies your taste buds. You can get the bars as a single bar or in a 12-bar box.
Cheese lovers, rejoice! No longer must you sneak a slice of cheese and damage your waistline by putting it on fatty, starchy crackers to get a good crunch. Now you can have your cheesy taste and your crunch all in one weight loss-geared bite with Bunker Hill Crunchy Cheese Crisps - Cheddar. They are made with 100% real cheese and have 1 gram of carbs and 10 grams of protein per serving, and you can have them as a ready-to-eat snack or part of a meal with soup, salad, fruit, or vegetables. Bunker Hill Crunchy Cheese Crisps also come in creamy Swiss, spicy Jalapeno, smoky Barbecue, and bright Chili Lime and are available in single bags or a 4-pack or 12-pack.
Cereal is so crunchy, delicious, addictive, and...guilt-laden. Who can resist eating the whole box, especially when it is sweetened? We’re definitely not against crunchy, or sweet, or eating the whole package. Just choose the right one! Take BariatricPal Chocolate Caramel Protein Granola, for example. With rich chocolate, wholesome oats, and caramel-flavored clusters, it has 130 calories and 11 grams of protein, and only 6 grams of sugar per individually-packaged serving. Each box has 7 packets.
On this day and every other day, you can eat great and lose weight. Just leave it to The BariatricPal Store to come up with the decadent flavors you love without the excessive carbs and calories. Whether you crave Ranch, Cheesecake, Pizza, or, just try searching our store for your favorite flavors to see what we have!

Protein Cake Bites at The BariatricPal Store 0
Everyone can use more cake, but not the pounds it packs on. Protein Cake Bites solve the dilemma, offering the taste and satisfaction of cake while you lose weight. These low-carb treats are so delicious you won’t be able to believe that they can possibly be okay on your diet.
The serving size is 3 great-tasting cakes. Each cake has a whipped protein center and a thick frosting surrounding it. You can count on them being free from aspartame and trans fats, but having them turns any day into what feels like a glorious cheat day.
Low-Sugar Protein Source
Each serving of Protein Cake Bites has 20 grams of protein, and no more than 3 grams of sugar. That is quite a deal when compared to, say, a slice of red velvet cake or cheesecake with 4 grams of protein and 20 or 30 grams of sugar. Protein Cake Bites get their protein from high-quality sources such as whey protein isolate, and they have bone-building calcium. Each serving has no more than 250 calories, making them ideal as a small meal, large snack, or filling dessert.
Protein Cake Bites come in nine great-tasting flavors to satisfy every sweet tooth.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate with a peanut butter center and chocolate frosting.
- Berry Cheesecake with a berry-flavored center and a sweet cheesy coating.
- Birthday Cake to make every day seem like your birthday.
- Chocolate Dipped Cherry kind of like a truffle but without the sugar.
- Chocolate Mint with the satisfaction of the chocolate candy, minus the guilt.
- Red Velvet with decadent cake and creamy frosting and no guilt.
- Fruity Cereal to bring back the tastes and carefree days of childhood.
- Chocolate Frosted Donut with chocolate and more chocolate, but no trans fats.
- Cookies and Cream dotted with black and white goodness, just like the cookies you love.
Try them all to find your favorite flavor! You can buy single flavors in single bars or boxes of 12, or try a Variety Pack with the first 8 flavors.
Cake All Day
Why save cake for special occasions? Why save it for dessert? You can have your cake whenever you want it. Eat these ready-to-eat Protein Cake Bites for breakfast at home or on the go, or have them for a morning of afternoon snack. Of course, they make a great dessert, too.
Try Protein Cake Bites by Optimum Nutrition if you like a sweet something, live for frosting, and want to lose weight. Being able to turn any day into a celebration may be just what you need to stay on your weight loss plan and love it.
Chocolate Mint Weight Loss Bliss 0
Today marks another weight loss…well, food…holiday. It is National Chocolate Mint Day: a blend of delicious, satisfying, rich, and sweet flavors. You get to choose whether to celebrate with weight loss, and The BariatricPal Store is ready for you if you are!
Chocolate Mint Diet Disasters
We’re with you if you fear that eating chocolate mint goodness will send you into a sugary state of weight gain. So many options are high-calorie, high-sugar, and low-protein.
- A cup of mint chocolate chip ice cream has a day’s worth of saturated fat and 48 grams of sugar.
- A single peppermint patty has 25 grams of sugar.
- An order of mint cocoa has up to 500 calories and 72 grams of sugar.
The BariatricPal Store offers instead a low-sugar, high-protein option in the form of BariatricPal Cocoa Mint Protein Bars.
Calorie-Controlled Chocolate Mint Bars
Start a box of chocolate mint cookies, and you may not be able to stop eating before you hit several hundred calories. Peel open a Cocoa Mint Protein Bar, and you can eat the whole thing for 160 calories. There is a lot more pleasure when you feel no guilt! The bars are minty on the inside and chocolatey on the outside for the perfect bite every bite.
Protein and Fiber for Filling Weight Loss
A candy or sugary drink may taste good while it’s going down, but you can soon find yourself starving again and craving more sugar. With Cocoa Mint Protein Bars, you get slow-digesting nutrients that keep you fuller for longer.
Cocoa Mint Protein Bars have 15 grams of high-quality from sources such as whey and egg whites. They also have 8 grams of dietary fiber, which is nearly one-third of the daily value. Together, protein and fiber can help stave off hunger. Protein also supports metabolism and lean muscle mass, while fiber supports digestive health and lower blood sugar.
A Treat for Anytime
Be sure to have your Cocoa Mint Protein Bars on hand because you never know when you may want one. It can be a quick breakfast or guilt-free dessert, or a snack to tide you over for a couple of hours. You can also use it as a snack before or after a workout – what a way to do double weight loss duty.
National Pork Rind Day at The BariatricPal Store 0
If ever there were a day designed for weight loss, it would be today: National Pork Rind Day. Pork rinds may not seem like the ultimate weight loss food, but they can be when you get them from The BariatricPal Store. Pork Clouds are a low-carb treat that can keep you on cloud 9 while you lose weight (no pun intended).
Carb-Free and More
Salty, crunchy snacks such as potato chips can destroy your diet, not to mention your arteries from the fat used for frying. Plus, they are packed with refined starches that spike blood sugar and bump up cravings.
Pork Clouds deliver the salty flavor and satisfying crunch without a single gram of carbs, sugar, or gram of trans fat. They have 100 calories per serving, along with 12 grams of protein. Their only source of added fat is heart-healthy olive oil, known for its benefits on a Mediterranean diet. The only ingredients are pork, sea salt, olive oil, and spices. You can fit them into almost any meal plan, such as:
Pork Clouds make great snacks any time and anywhere, since they are portable, portion-controlled, and ready to eat. Fuel up before a workout or replenish your protein after your exercise, or have them as a snack in the afternoon or morning.
You can also use Pork Clouds in all kinds of recipes as a low-carb substitute. Examples include:
- Baked “fried chicken”
- Topping for mac and cheese or other casseroles
- Pork rind pizza crust
Pork Clouds also make great companions for dips and substitutes for crackers, whether for yourself or for a crowd. Try them dipped in hummus or pureed avocado, or with cheese and tomato slices on top.
Pork Cloud Flavors
There is no need to confuse simple with boring. Pork Clouds may have a simple foundation of pork, sea salt, and olive oil, but they have great-tasting accents that will keep you coming back for more.
- Rosemary & Sea Salt – with real herbs and a savory tone
- Malabar Black Pepper – a bit of a bite
- Habanero – not for the faint of heart
- Garlic Thyme – tastes like summer
- Cinnamon Ceylon – a spicy sweet twist
Pork Clouds come in sizes that meet your needs. Choose from a single pack or 6-pack of each flavor, or get the Variety Pack with 1 of each flavor. Celebrate weight loss and National Pork Rind Day today and every day!
Super Bowl Party Central 0
The Big Game is on Sunday. It is the second-biggest eating day of the year (after Thanksgiving, if you’re wondering). That can only mean one thing: weight loss. Stick around The BariatricPal Store for ideas, and this might be the healthiest Super Bowl Sunday of your life.
Super Bowl Sunday is almost synonymous with chicken wings. Go right ahead, but make a few changes from your usual fried, fatty fare. Try coating strips of skinless chicken breast not with regular, carb-laden breadcrumbs, but with Panko Pork Rind Breadcrumbs that add 9 grams of protein per half-ounce. Bake your “fried chicken” and know you are getting protein without grease from frying oils.
Pizza also ranks high on this day, as Super Bowl Sunday has been the top day of the year for delivery. Again, we say, “Go for it!” as long as you make a few smart moves. For instance, choose Pizza-Flavored Snacks, such as Crunchy Protein Snacks or Pepperoni Snack Sticks, and save yourself the trouble of 30 grams of carbs per slice (that’s 240 grams per pizza…).
If nothing but pizza will do, you have plenty of options for a low-carb crust. Use a portobello mushroom or half an eggplant, or add protein by using High-Protein Brown Bread as a crust. Then pile on the tomato sauce or diced tomatoes and basil, olives, veggies, and anchovies or diced chicken breast.
Come on in and grab yourself a bite. Just make sure to skip the chocolate candies, potato and tortilla chips, and cocktail wieners. What does that leave? It leaves all kinds of flavors and textures to experiment with.
A snack mix, or a few different snack mixes, can make everyone feel welcome without giving them a sugar overload before kickoff. Select a few items to create each mixture of sweet, salty, savory, or spicy flavors. You might consider:
- Protein Chips
- Protein Cereal
- Protein Cookies
- Cheese Snacks
- Protein Chocolate and Candy
- Nuts and peanuts
You can always lighten up your appetizers by skipping the doughy and fried foods. Plain skewers give plenty of options. Try combos such as:
- Cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil
- Mushrooms and ground turkey meatballs
- Apple chunks and cheddar cheese
The BariatricPal Store cannot guarantee that your favorite team will win, but we can promise lower-sugar desserts that may make your Super Bowl Sunday a success regardless of the winner. Protein Brownies, Cookies, and Cake, and Protein Hot Cocoa, are sure hits.
The Super Bowl comes only once a year, so be sure to embrace it fully! Enjoy your favorite flavors and skip the guilt as you down protein without trans fats or sugar. Just consider The BariatricPal Store your Super Bowl Party Central!
