Warming Weight Loss Tips
You will notice all kinds of benefits of weight loss, but you may also notice that you are a little more sensitive to the cold than you used to be. As we head into the long winter, you may need a little help staying warm, and The BariatricPal Store has just what you need to stay cozy and lose weight.
Savor a Hot Protein Drink
The BariatricPal has Hot Protein Drinks that can warm you inside and out. Try hot cocoa flavors such as Classic, Marshmallows, and Irish Cream, or you might find that you are more partial to Vanilla Cappuccino or Amaretto. Each serving has 15 grams of protein and 80 to 100 calories, with a minimal amount of sugar and total carbs.
Try a cup of cocoa in the mid-morning when you are getting ready to face the day, or save your treat for the evening when your sweet tooth kicks in and you need to relax before bed. You can feel good getting your indulgence while passing up sugary alternatives.
Sip on Soup
BariatricPal Protein Soups are so tasty and varied that they can make you forget you are even dieting. They have another benefit, too: they’re a warm meal to look forward to at lunch or dinner. Choose from Chicken Bouillon, Cream of Tomato, Cream of Mushroom, and more.
You can make your instant soup in minutes using just water, or add some nutritious ingredients to quickly make yourself a hearty, even more filling meal. You can add cooked proteins such as chicken breast, lentils, or beans, and vegetables such as spinach, kale, mushrooms, carrots, and tomatoes. Check out our Recipes section to find more ideas, such as Turkey Chili, Skinny Gazpacho, and Broccoli Bisque.
Getting active boosts your metabolism, which can warm you up. Working out can even help you warm up after a walk or jog in the snow, as long as you dress properly and stay safe. Start your day off with a good workout followed by some hearty Protein Oatmeal, or grab a protein bar after an afternoon session at the gym.
