Mediterranean Diet for Weight Loss
Many people adopt the Mediterranean Diet as a way to lose weight. SimpleMD can be part of a healthy weight loss program, but first, have a talk with your doctor and make sure you have a plan he or she approves.
You can substitute SimpleMD bars for meals and snacks - yes, snacks! - throughout the day. For instance, if you're looking to lose 10-15 pounds you can substitute SimpleMD bars for breakfast and snacks. In addition to eating 3-4 Original Mediterranean Protein Bars, plan on eating a sensible lunch and a sensible dinner. What is a sensible meal? Well, it’s not four slices of pizza. And it’s not a burger and fries. But sensible can be tasty… check out our recommendations.
The key is to stick with the SimpleMD bars and sensible meals. Smaller portions throughout the day will keep you satisfied and keep you motivated. Our 7-Day Kit is a great way to kick-start a weight-loss program and begin to incorporate the Mediterranean Diet into your daily living... and don't forget to enjoy a glass of red wine at dinner. You deserve it!
Get Creative With SimpleMD Bars
When developing SimpleMD, we wanted to make sure the bars were delicious. There’s no point in creating a protein bar that nobody wants to eat, right? Well, we know that SimpleMD tastes great right out of the package, but through our at-home R&D efforts we learned there other ways to enjoy our original Mediterranean protein bars.
Dunking's Not Just for Donuts
Throughout the Mediterranean, dunking is part of the culture: bread in olive oil; biscotti in coffee. Here's one moret: SimpleMD bars in red wine. Give it a try; happiness awaits.
Some Like It Hot
For breakfast, put a SimpleMD protein bar in the microwave for 10 seconds, but take it out of the wrapper first! A warm protein bar paired with a cup of coffee is a great way to start any day, especially yours.
