‘Tis the Season…for Jolly Weight Loss
Holiday weight loss is so hard because there’s so much to enjoy, and most of it is absolutely forbidden on a low-carb, high-protein, low-calorie diet. Knowing you should not eat it does not make it any easier when it all tastes so good and makes the holidays seem complete. This year, look to The BariatricPal Store for the tastes you love with nutritional facts you can handle. Here’s a taste!
Holiday fudge is almost unavoidable, so why try? Instead, indulge with high-protein, low-sugar fudge. Try Double Deluxe Chocolate Fudge with 33 grams of protein and 6 grams of sugar per serving – that should make you feel better than fudge with 23 grams of sugar per serving! You can switch it up by adding peanuts or walnuts (hello, healthy fats!), using a different flavor of Hot Protein Cocoa Mix (what about mint or amaretto?), or trying Vanilla Protein Pudding instead of chocolate for a marble swirl.
You’re sitting around the fire with your family after dinner, enjoying the company and sipping on delicious hot cocoa, with rich chocolate and loads of sugar. Wait! That won’t do your weight loss any good!
Take Two: you’re sitting with your family, but this time, you’re sipping on Hot Protein Cocoa! There you go. It has only 3 grams of sugar, and 15 grams of protein to keep you satisfied for hours. You can still choose your favorite flavors, from Classic to Marshmallow to Irish Cream. Merry Christmas indeed!
One for Santa, one for you, one for Santa, one for you…Santa may be able to handle countless sugar-laden, fat-laden Christmas cookies, but you cannot. The responsible way for you to have your share isn’t so bad, though; try Protein Biscotti in Chocolate Fudge Chip, Almond Chip, and Chocolate Chip! Each cookie has 1 gram of protein and 15 calories. That means you can keep up with Santa – at least, for a little while.
Cranberries are one of nature’s superfoods with fiber, antioxidants, and minerals, so how did they go so wrong? Sugar may have something to do with it – cranberry sauce is little more than sugar-laden cranberries – and starch and fat don’t help – think about cranberry scones and cranberry bread, for instance. Your waistline is better off with Cranberry Protein Foods, such as Cranberry Lemon Protein Cookies and Green Tea Cranberry Protein Drink, each with 15 grams of protein and hardly any sugar.
