Many people find that losing weight is hard, but keeping it off is harder. Research studies agree that it is hard to keep off pounds, too. But there are some tricks that can make it easier. These are some small diet changes that can lead to long-term weight loss.
Adding protein to breakfast, and limiting carbs, can help you stay full throughout the morning. Eggs are a good start, but plain eggs can get boring when you have them day after day. Instead, consider adding protein by using high-protein, keto-friendly versions of your favorite breakfast foods. Protein Pancakes, Protein Oatmal, Protein Cereal and Granola, Protein Muffin Cups, and Protein Toaster Pastries are all available and low in carbs to help you keep losing weight for a while.
It’s not just breakfast when protein can be a good thing. Eating more of it all day can help reduce hunger so you can feel more full. Chicken and cottage cheese are some go-to’s, but Netrition has quite a variety of more interesting options to boost your protein consumption.
These are just a few examples of high-protein products at Netrition.
- Protein Shakes and Smoothies
- Protein Oatmeal, Cereal, and Granola
- Protein Pasta and Bread
- Protein Snacks such as Chips, Pretzels, and Crisps
- Protein Peanut and Nut Butter Spreads
- Protein Bars
- Meat and Fish Snacks
They come in all sorts of flavors and varieties so you can easily find ones that satisfy taste buds and are on your diet plan.
If you love carbs, letting them come back into your diet can keep you from maintaining hard-earned weight loss. On the other hand, it's not reasonable to expect to be able to cut out carbs forever.
A good solution is to choose low-carb swaps for your favorite high-carb foods. These are some examples of low-carb or high-protein swaps.
- Protein Pasta and Rice
- Zero-Carb and Low-Carb Bread, Tortillas, and Bagels
- Protein Mashed Potatoes
- Keto-Friendly Cake and Cookie Mixes
- Sugar-Free Chocolate and Candy
Netrition has many more low-carb swaps to make it easier to stay on your diet without feeling deprived.
Many Americans fall short on fiber recommendations, but fiber can help you control blood sugar and cholesterol, and improve digestive health. If you are having trouble getting enough, Netrition can help with high-fiber products. Examples include many of our Keto Breads, Pastas, Cereals, and Snack Bars.
Smart snacking has a lot of components, but Netrition can help. First, it requires you to plan ahead to make sure you have what you need. Ready-to-eat, single-serve snacks that don’t require refrigeration can be good choices for home, the office, and the car.
It is also good to make sure snacks are high in protein and low in carbs so that you don’t get hungry soon afterwards or develop more carb cravings. High-Protein Keto Snacks at Netrition include Protein Bars, Protein Chips, Protein Cookies, and more, all available in a range of flavors.
Too much fat of any kind adds a load of calories, which can interfere with weight loss. But adding small amounts of healthy fat can increase satiety and help you eat less overall. While it’s good to cut back on sources such as fatty meats and butter, it can be good to include small servings of healthy fats such as Olive Oil and Avocado Mayonnaise.
Condiments may make food taste good, but they can also make your food higher in calories, sugar, or fat. Using more spices and herbs in your cooking can help, and so can using keto-friendly meal helpers and sauces. These are some examples.
- Frontera Skillet Sauces with authentic southwestern flavors
- Sugar-Free Ketchup and BBQ and Steak Sauces
- Sugar-Free and Low-Fat Salad Dressings
- Sugar-Free Pancake and Flavoring Syrups
Coffee drinks and hot chocolate can add hundreds of calories and loads of sugar to your day. They can get in the way of long-term weight loss, but it is hard to give them up. You don’t have to. Instead, you can make better choices that are lower in sugar or add protein to your day.
Here are some good hot drinks to consider.
- Protein Coffee and Cappuccino
- Protein Hot Chocolate in a variety of flavors including Classic, Marshmallow, Amaretto, and Cinnamon.
- Protein Mocha
- Low-Acid Coffee
They are all low in sugar and suitable for a low-carb diet.
If you want to stay on your weight loss plan, it helps to have regular treats so you can feel satisfied and not deprived. Whatever is your guilty pleasure of choice, you can make it differently so it fits into a low-carb or weight loss diet. Here are some examples.
- Keto Peanut Butter Cups
- Homemade pizza on Keto-Friendly Pizza Crust
- Burritos on Low-Carb Wraps
- Low-Carb Brownie Mix
- Keto-Friendly Protein Chips
- Baked “fried” chicken with Pork Panko breading.
It can help to include a treat on a regular schedule, such as a small amount each day or a larger serving on weekends. That way, you can look forward to your treat, plan for it, enjoy it, and not feel guilty about it.
Eating out can lead to weight gain since portions can be oversized and foods can be high-calories. It can help to cook yourself, and it doesn’t have to be hard. Meal helpers can include Low-Carb Pasta, Low-Carb Bread, and healthy BBQ, Pasta, and Skillet Sauces. Netrition also has many ready-to-eat Protein Meals that can be ready in minutes for you to enjoy.
Drastic diets can lead to weight loss, but smaller changes are likely to let you keep the weight off. Small diet changes can lead to long-term weight loss, and Netrition has plenty of swaps that can help you turn these changes into habits. Netrition is your source for great-tasting, easy-to-use products that make you feel like you are not on a diet as you work towards your health goals.
