Fall Back Into Weight Loss September 06 2018

Fall means it’s time to get back on track with your weight loss goals but that doesn’t have to mean giving up delicious desserts. In fact, I find that most people start baking and eating comfort foods, so here are a few that will boost your metabolism and help flatten out your stomach, while promoting fat burning and beating bloat!

These fast, easy, delicious, metabolic boosting desserts will fill you up without filling you out. They will kill cravings versus making you crave more, and will improve your immune system.

If you’ve been trying to lose weight and melt off belly fat, you know how important increasing your fiber is, in addition to lowering your carbs and fat. Making your own slimming snacks can help. If you don’t have the time, replace your current snacks (especially any other protein bars you're eating that aren’t Lean Bars) with a metabolic boosting Lean Bar instead. You’ll quickly see and feel the difference in how your skinny jeans fit! 

These recipes/brownie bars use VitaFiber. It’s a prebiotic fiber that also acts as a binding agent. This amazing ingredient does more than beat bloat and boost immunity, it's also the key to give your brownie and protein bars their typical texture.

This ingredient also serves as a low-carb, metabolic boosting, low-glycemic sweetener that’s derived from fiber. It keeps you feeling fuller longer and keeps blood sugars balanced, which is the secret to getting your body to stop resisting weight loss and melting off stubborn, dangerous belly fat.

VitaFiber IMO (called Isomalto-oligosaccharides or IMO) is the new secret low-carb belly fat busting ingredient to make low-carb protein bars, fiber-filled smoothies and can be used in all of our metabolic boosting desserts. This is not your typical fiber. VitaFiber improves health while keeping you feeling fuller longer and improving gut health, thanks to the prebiotics. 

What makes these protein bar/brownie recipes different?

They're metabolic boosting, low-carb, low-sugar, low-fat, and high prebiotic fiber, boosting metabolism versus slowing it like store-bought brand bars and cookies. Depending on which recipe you choose, you’ll basically be under 175 calories, 20 grams of protein, less than 10 carbs, and because you use prebiotic fiber, you deduct that from the carbs, leaving you with a net of zero carbs. Plus... less than 2 grams of sugar, <1 gram of fat, and 15-18 grams of fiber. It doesn’t get any leaner or better than this!

You’ve gotta try these recipes with our new Sinful Chocolate Sauce and a few chopped walnuts on top. Warning: These are quite addicting. This morning I had one for breakfast at 9 a.m. and was full until dinner time (too full to eat which is not like me). Be sure to always drink plenty of water or hot tea when you take in this much fiber.

For all of these, place them on wax paper and mold with your hands into a bar. You can wrap them individually, or if you make a larger batch, you can cut them into whatever shape you choose. I like to place mine in the freezer when it’s hot out or store in the refrigerator for an hour so it sets.
