‘Tis the Season for Weight Loss
What would you say if we told you that weight loss in December is possible? That we’re crazy? Understandable, but it’s actually true. The BariatricPal Store has all kinds of treats that you can turn to instead of the sugary, fatty temptations that are all around you. Focus on filling protein foods, and you can lose weight this month.
Roasted Broad Bean Crisps
When the parade of food becomes too much for you to resist, turn to Enlightened Roasted Broad Bean Crisps. Each serving of this healthy crunchy snack has 100 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fiber. Choose from savory choices such as Sea Salt, Mesquite BBQ, and Sriracha, or sweeter versions, such as Sweet Cinnamon and Cocoa Dusted. They are sweetened with stevia – not aspartame – and are flavored with natural ingredients such as cinnamon, paprika extract, cocoa, garlic, and onion.
Get Some Protein Along with Mint
Peppermint Christmas cookies, mint-infused brownies, candy canes, and mint cocoa have a lot in common, including their horrifying sugar content and their tendency to make you crave sweet foods! Instead, get your mint fix from high-protein, low-sugar choices, including Chocolate Mint Protein Bars and Mint Protein Hot Chocolate.
Fresh Baked Goods
Who can resist the fresh-baked goods that come along with Christmas? Do not worry if you cannot. Just go for the healthier choices. Choose a high-protein baking mix and be creative with it, or Make your own single-serving Protein Brownies in minutes by adding just water, or use your imagination to make anything from low carb cinnamon rolls to fluffy biscuits with Carbalose Lo-Carb Flour.
The occasional indulgence is inevitable, but you can lose weight this holiday season by pasing some of them up. Swapping high-protein, low-carb treats for the calorie loaded ones can help you keep up your willpower.
