BariatricPal Mug Cakes on National Dessert Day

BariatricPal Mug Cakes on National Dessert Day 0

October 14 marks National Dessert Day, and surprise! The BariatricPal Store has plenty of desserts that can fit into any weight loss diet. BariatricPal Mug Cakes, for example, are low in carbs and high in protein, and great-tasting. Here is why you might want them for dessert every day - and maybe at other times of the day, too! 

Delicious Desserts

A freshly-baked cake can turn a diet from a chore to a pleasure, and even better when it is ready in seconds. BariatricPal Mug Cakes just need a bit of water and a mug, and are ready in less than a minute in the microwave. 

What kind of freshly-baked cake would you like? Take your pick!

  • Chocolate: irresistible and classic. Great on its own or with strawberries.
  • Blueberry: with real blueberries, similar to a muffin. Great on its own or with mashed avocado.
  • Chocolate Caramel: sweet, rich, and decadent. Great on its own or with sharp cheddar.
  • Vanilla Chocolate Chip: possibly the best of both worlds. Great on its own or with ricotta cheese.
  • Gingerbread: reminiscent of the holidays and autumn. Great on its own or with cream cheese.

Each box of BariatricPal Mug Cakes has 7 single-serving packets. BariatricPal Mug Cakes also come in a Variety Pack with all five flavors.

Diet-Friendly

Can you really fit a scrumptious dessert into a sensible meal plan? BariatricPal Mug Cakes can be your ticket to satisfaction while shrinking your waistline. Instead of being sugar-laden and devoid of protein, they have no more than 6 grams of sugar and at least 12 grams of protein each. They also have up to 6 grams of dietary fiber, a nutrient that satisfies hunger for longer and lowers cholesterol levels, too.

They have 120 to 140 calories per serving, and no worries about eating the whole package. Unlike baking a whole cake or opening up a store-bought dessert, BariatricPal Mug Cakes are packaged in single-serving packets. They are designed for you to eat the whole thing! That can make them not only better for weight loss, but also more satisfying.

Dessert and More

BariatricPal Mug Cakes certainly make an excellent dessert. They are satisfying and can save hundreds of calories and dozens of grams of sugar compared to a slice of regular cake. They do not need to be saved for dessert, though.

On their own, BariatricPal Mug Cakes make a quick morning or afternoon snack. Can you imagine your coworkers’ reactions when they smell your mug cake cooking and see you losing weight? BariatricPal Mug Cakes can also be a good foundation for a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast.

Never fear if BariatricPal Mug Cakes are not your dream dessert. The BariatricPal Store has plenty of other high-protein, low-carb choices to fit every taste. Just a sampling are Protein Cookies, Protein Pudding, and Low-Carb Candy in flavors including Chocolate and Chocolate Chip, Lemon Bar, Raspberry, and Vanilla...just for starters. Come check it out yourself and go wild on this National Dessert Day!
Pretzels for Every Shrinking Waistline During National Pretzel Month

Pretzels for Every Shrinking Waistline During National Pretzel Month 0

October is National Pretzel Month, so thank goodness for Protein Pretzels. Otherwise, you might be tempted to eat high-carb, low-protein pretzels to celebrate. With Protein Pretzels, you can try different ways of getting your pretzel fix without even thinking about breaking your diet. Here is how!

Pure Pretzels for Pretzel-Lovers

The BariatricPal Store has a variety of Protein Pretzels for all tastes. Stick with Original flavor in twists and sticks, or try French Toast, Jalapeno Honey Mustard, or Honey Mustard Bites. Whatever you choose, you are sure to get a reduced-carb snack with 12 to 15 grams of protein and unlimited taste and crunch. Some types are gluten-free, too.

Try your pretzels on their own or however you normally love pretzels. They are great with cheese, peanut butter, fruit, or grape tomatoes, or you can try them crumbled into salads for a low-carb crunch. They come in single-serving packets that are ready to eat, anytime, anywhere.

Snack Mix

Those snack mixes with pretzels, cereal, chocolate candies, and crackers may taste great, but they can come at a heft carb and sugar price. Instead, make your own snack mix with low-carb, high-protein ingredients by mixing some plain or flavored Protein Pretzels with any of your favorite protein snack foods, such as nuts, peanuts, dried soybeans, or any of the following.

Bring your great-tasting snack mix to a party to pass around, or keep your mix to yourself for a personal party while you snack. You turn your mix into a meal by eating it with fresh fruit or cottage cheese, or dipping it into a cream cheese or yogurt-based dip.

Soft Pretzels

Do you think you cannot have soft pretzels anymore on a high-protein, low-carb weight loss diet? Think again! A soft pretzel ban may be in effect if it means going to the mall for a 400-calorie pretzel with 60 or more grams of carbs, but that is not the case when you make your own. 

Choose any of our low-carb baking mixes, and put your own twist on soft pretzels. Then dip one in mustard, spread one with cream cheese, or slice one in half and use it instead of bread for a sandwich, such as turkey and cheese, peanut butter and banana, or tuna with lettuce and tomato. Anything goes when it is time to lose weight!

Pretzels are a craveable salty snack, and one that can set you back in your quest for low-carb weight loss, unless you choose a smart snack such as Protein Pretzels. Experiment during all of October to celebrate National Pretzel Month, and who knows, maybe you will lose extra weight as you focus on high-protein, low-carb snacks to satisify those carb cravings!
Yumbox Lunch Boxes for Back-to-School Weight Loss

Yumbox Lunch Boxes for Back-to-School Weight Loss 0

As summer draws to a close and school is starting in many parts of the country, it is a good time to think about weight loss, especially at lunch. Students, teachers, and parents with school-aged children at home may already be thinking about back-to-school lunches, but the back-to-school season may affect you even if not directly. Things tend to get busier when summer ends and everyone gets back from summer vacation. 

At this time, packing a healthy lunch can be even more important and challenging than usual. Your lunch hour may be cut short with extra work, and hectic mornings may mean you have less time to prepare and portion out a healthy lunch. Yumbox Lunchboxes and related accessories can help you stay on track with your weight loss program without hassle.

There is also a small space for hummus, peanut butter, or salsa.

Yumbox Lunch Boxes come in a variety of colors to match your mood, personality, and outfit. Try purple or light or dark blue, green or pink. 

Portion-Perfect Snacks

Snacks on the go may be even more common than lunches away from home, and planning for them is just as important if you want to avoid last-minute fare, such as candy bars, crackers, and chips, with their sugars, starches, and fats. Yumbox Snack Boxes let you have your convenient snack without the excess carbs and calories.

Each box has 3 compartments with leakproof lids. The largest compartment has a ¾-cup capacity, while the smaller compartments are ⅓ cup. Pack your Yumbox Snack Box with some lean protein and high-fiber carbs or healthy fats for an energizing, waist-friendly snack.

You can pair your lunch or snack box with other Yumbox Products to suit your needs better. For example, try the insulated cooler bag or lunch bag to assist with temperature control. You can also pick up some Gelato Ice Packs to keep cold foods cold until lunchtime.

Avocados: Your Secret Weight Loss Tool

Avocados: Your Secret Weight Loss Tool 1

Avocados are delicious and high in fat and calories. That rarely adds up to a good weight loss food, but this time is different. People who eat avocados often tend to have lower body weights and higher “good” HDL cholesterol. This is what you should know about avocados, health, and weight loss, and ways to eat avocados in diet-friendly ways.

Avocado Nutrition and Effects on Weight

Avocados are different from other fruit because they are very high in fat and calories. An avocado has 45 calories per ounce (2 tablespoons) or 720 calories per lb., which is five times the calories as strawberries. Plus, each ounce has 4 grams of fat while most other kinds of fruit are fat-free. 

However, nearly all of the fat in avocados is of the heart-healthy monounsaturated type. Plus, avocados have three times the amount of fiber as strawberries and more than twice the amount as apples. They have vitamin E, potassium, and magnesium, which all tend to be short in people’s diets.

Guacamole

You can whip up guacamole with avocados, lime juice, garlic, onion, cilantro, and tomatoes. Puree it well if you are on a pureed foods or soft foods diet. Then, instead of dipping starchy, fatty tortilla chips into it, try raw veggies, Protein Chips or Bean Chips. You can have it as a snack or add some cheese, beans, and lettuce and call it a meal.

As a Topping

Avocados can make almost anything better. Try your own versions of Mexican favorites but without as many calories or as much starch as you might find in burritos, tostados, and taco salads. Use ingredients such as fat-free refried beans, fat-free sour cream, shredded chicken or seasoned tofu, grilled onions, salsa, lettuce, and tomatoes. You can also add a couple slices to eggs or salads, or top soup with sliced avocado just before serving it. 

In Smoothies

Try an avocado protein smoothie for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. You might want to add the following components. Just experiment to find combinations you like.

  • Avocado
  • Protein, such as tofu, Greek yogurt, or Protein Powder
  • Fruit, such as banana, strawberries, blueberries, or peaches
  • Vegetables, such as spinach, kale, or carrots 
  • Flavors, such as vanilla, cocoa, ginger or cinnamon

Mayo Substitute

Pureed avocados can be a healthy substitute for mayo. Use it as a spread on sandwiches, especially when you are using Zero Carb Bread or Protein Bread. You can also use it in recipes instead of mayo in recipes such as egg salad, Low-Carb Pasta salad, and tuna salad.
Extra Weight Loss on International No-Diet Day

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

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

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

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!
