Naturally Sugar-Free Mints – No Fools! 0
Happy April Fools’ Day! The BariatricPal Store has no tricks in store for you today. We have something better: a list of candies that sound too good to be true, but really are true. Our collection of sugar-free candies will have your mouth watering while your diet stays on track. Here are just a few of our offerings.
Naturally Sugar-Free Mints
The perfect mint can be your companion anywhere. MintiQ just may be the choice to fulfill that role. It has 2 calories per tablet and no sugar or fat. These little mints are sweetened with monkfruit and are all-natural. Slip in a mint whenever you have a craving for something sweet but do not have extra calories or carbs to spare.
Choose from Yakima Peppermint, Acai Pomegranate, Iced Lemon, and Spicy Cinnamon, or get them all in the Variety Pack. Individual flavors come in single boxes or 6 or 12-packs.
If those red chewy fish are your downfall, Sweet Fish are the thing for you. These gummies are sweet and chewy, like the real thing, but with a fraction of the sugar at 3 grams. Enjoy the entire bag for 80 calories, and note an additional benefit with 28 grams of fiber. That means these candies can not only satisfy cravings, but also increase fullness.
You can also try Sour Bears, Sour Blast Buddies, and Fruit Bears, or opt for the Variety Pack. Each flavor comes in a single pouch or a 6 or 12-pack, which makes it easy to stash some wherever your sweet cravings may strike.
Everyone should eat more candy, especially when it cleans your teeth. That is exactly what Zollipops Zaffi Taffi does. It is not only free from tooth-eroding sugars, but it contains xylitol, which can help protect your teeth from decay. Just eat them after a meal to get the benefits.
Each serving has 30 calories and 0 grams of sugars. They are organic, vegan, and gluten-free, as well as dairy-free. The bag has strawberry, orange, grape, and pineapple flavors. Opt for a single bag or a 3-bag or 6-bag pack, and try the other Zollipop varieties!
The BariatricPal Store has tons more Sugar-Free Candies and other low-carb sweet snacks. Browse the store and be confident that we are not playing tricks – these treats are for real!
Zero-Carb Bagels – Weight Loss Dream! 0
Do you remember the days when you could have a freshly baked bagel without worrying about it, and your biggest concern was what to put on it? Those days are back! Zero-Carb Bagels let you have your bagel without going off of your diet.
The Basics: Nutrition and Flavors
First off, what are you getting into with Zero-Carb Bagels? They have 14 grams of protein and 14 grams of fiber, so you have plenty of filling nutrition with each bagel. Each one has only 90 calories and, as advertised, 0 grams of net carbs. That means you can fit them into any meal or snack without fear, unlike a standard bakery bagel with 290 calories and 60 grams of carbohydrates.
The bagels come in perfect Plain, crunchy Sesame, slightly sweet but sugar-free Cinnamon, and Everything with onions, poppy and sesame seeds, mixed garlic, and salt. You can also get Zero-Carb Bagels in a Variety Pack so you can have any kind of bagel anytime.
Cream Cheesy Classic Bagel Goodness
Zero-Carb Bagels are worlds apart from regular bagels in terms of the nutrition, but they are a lot like regular bagels in other ways, such as in their love of cream cheese. Use plain cream cheese on its own or with salmon, and consider adding lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, olives, or capers. Fruit is another friend of cream cheese.
Breakfast and Anytime Bagel-wiches
You can use Zero-Carb Bagels to start your day with a low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting breakfast sandwich. If you are looking for nutritious and portable options as an alternative to a fast food breakfast, take your pick of egg whites or eggs, low-fat cheese, and all-natural turkey or soy bacon or breakfast sausage.
For another genre of bagel sandwich, try tuna, egg, or chicken salad made with Greek yogurt instead of mayo, or pile leftover chicken or fish, lettuce, and tomato onto a Zero-Carb Bagel with mustard. Another great option, since you are already getting so much protein from your bagel, is to fill it with a grilled or roasted portobello mushroom marinated in teriyaki sauce or Italian dressing or spread with blue cheese.
On the Sweet Side
Zero-Carb Bagels can be a sweet treat for breakfast, dessert, or a snack. Spread them with low-carb Nektella chocolate hazelnut spread or calorie-free Walden Farms peanut butter and fruit-flavored topping.
Each flavor of Zero-Carb Bagels comes in single bags of 6 bagels or of six-bag packs of 36 total bags. They are shelf-stable, so stock up! You can find more ThinSlim Zero-Carb breads, pizza crust, hot dog buns, and even onion pockets at The BariatricPal Store. We are here to make weight loss exciting and easier!
Waffles for Weight Loss! 0
What is a big, satisfying waffle worth to you? You may be craving the fresh, slightly sweet taste of a waffle and your favorite toppings, but that waffle brunch or breakfast may not be worth the calories and carbs if you are trying to lose weight. There is no need to forego waffles on this National Waffle Day or any other day, though. Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix lets you make fresh waffles without weight gain.
Protein and Fiber without Baggage
A high-protein, high-fiber breakfast can help you stay full throughout the morning as they slow digestion and stabilize blood sugar. Each serving of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix provides 5 grams of protein along with 11 grams of fiber. This comes in a package without any sugar and with only 55 calories and 6 grams of net carbs. The waffles are:
- Paleo and keto-friendly
- Made with real cinnamon and monkfruit
Compare these facts to a plain restaurant waffle without toppings, which could have 360 calories and over 40 grams of carbohydrates, and you really do have something to celebrate. Even a small frozen waffle has 13 grams of active carbs – twice as many as in a serving of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix.
Quick and Easy Waffles
You can make Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix in minutes. Add water, egg, and coconut oil, mix well, and follow the instructions on the package to get perfect waffles. After removing them from the waffle iron, you can top your waffles and serve them with your favorite sides.
Toppings and Sides
Since Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix has such low counts, you can serve your waffles with toppings or sides and still fit your waffle treat into a weight loss meal plan. You can top your waffle with:
- Sugar-Free Maple Syrup with 20 calories and 5 grams of fiber per 2-tablespoon serving.
- Berries or peaches with cottage or ricotta cheese
- Yogurt and toasted coconut
- Peanut butter or nut butter
- Nekstella hazelnut spread
You can also serve it with sides such as eggs or vegetarian breakfast sausage for a filling, diet-friendly meal.
Another option is to give your waffles a savory slant for a change of pace. You can top them with baked tomatoes or mushrooms, spinach cooked with pumpkin, or melted cheese.
You do not need to wait for a special Sunday brunch to have waffles since these are so quick and easy, not to mention friendly for your waistline. Each bag of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix has 17 servings so you can make enough for the whole family. What a way to celebrate National Waffle Day!

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread: A Weight Loss Wonder 0
Some food ads can make your weight loss diet seem a bit burdensome. Take those commercials for chocolate hazelnut spread, for example. Everyone in the family gets to enjoy sweet, creamy spread on goodies such as waffles and bagels. If you wish you could have the same delight, but are too dedicated to your weight loss program to consider the full-sugar version, consider sugar-free Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.
Did you know that the first two ingredients of regular “hazelnut” spread are sugar and palm oil? That is a little bit off-putting. The main ingredients of Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread are unsweetened chocolate and hazelnuts. It contains coconut oil, not hydrogenated palm oil, and natural monkfruit instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners. You are what you eat, and it is good to be Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.
An Unbelievable Treat
It may seem too good to be true that Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is allowed on your diet, but it is low-carb and sugar-free, while regular spread has over 20 grams of sugar. Plus, it is all-natural. It has 130 calories per 2-tablespoon serving, which is 35% fewer calories than regular spread or peanut butter and an easier amount to fit into your meal plan.
Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread has a whopping 12 grams of dietary fiber, which can help you stay full for longer. Dietary fiber helps prevent blood sugar spikes and dips, and may help lower cholesterol. It is also a boon for healthy digestion.
Your Imagination Is the Limit
How will you use Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread? Try it however you want for breakfast, snack, or dessert. We suggest it:
- As a dip for apples, strawberries, or banana.
- Spread onto waffles made with Low-Carb Baking Mix.
- On Protein Bread or toast.
- As a filling between Protein Pancakes.
- Mixed into whole grain or Protein Oatmeal.
- In a smoothie with banana and tofu.
Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread comes in creamy and crunchy varieties. Each jar is 11 or 16 ounces. You can also choose the Variety Pack with both types. However you choose to eat it, Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread can help keep your meal plan sweet and fun while you lose weight.
