Thomas' Bagel Thins Bagels Make Over Your Mornings This New YearHORSHAM, PA  (  If you’re like most people, you probably ushered in 2011 a few pounds heavier, and might be struggling to zip up your pants post-holiday. Getting fit is at the top of New Year’s resolution lists, and the bakers of Thomas’® Bagel Thins™ bagels have partnered with celebrity nutritionist Keri Glassman to help set you up for success.

Keri, a nationally recognized registered dietitian and leader in advancing a “whole person” approach to health and wellness, recommends going beyond nutritious eating to include getting adequate sleep, managing stress, exercising regularly and finding joy in life. In the desire to lose weight, many people end up eliminating items completely from their diet, like breakfast or carbohydrates – then end up gaining those pounds back. “Though people sometimes try and cut calories by removing entire food groups or meals,” said Keri, “these grand changes are not lasting, and can even be detrimental to your health. Balance and moderation are what’s most important for weight loss and management, and are keys to helping any New Year’s resolution dieters enjoy success beyond January!”

Starting your mornings right will set the tone for the rest of the day, and good-for-you choices will help keep your diet eating plan on track. “We know it’s not easy to choose the healthy option each morning,” said Eileen Gonthier, Thomas’ Brand Manager. “So we introduced the first-ever trim bagel, Thomas’ Bagel Thins bagels, to make picking that nutritious option easier and more appealing. All four flavors are delicious, and at 110 calories each, are just the right size.” Thomas’ Bagel Thins bagels are available in 100% Whole Wheat, Everything, Plain and Cinnamon Raisin. Every variety is low in fat and at least a good source of fiber, and the 100% Whole Wheat flavor offers 21 grams of whole grains per serving.

“We’re excited to be working with Keri,” continued Eileen. “She shares Thomas’ attitude for an approachably wholesome lifestyle, and knows that taste can’t be sacrificed for nutrition. They need to go hand-in-hand to ensure long-lasting wellness.”

Keri created morning makeover tips and four original recipes, one for each Bagel Thins bagel variety, to help consumers finds weight loss success this New Year. “Anyone looking to lose weight should start the day with a wholesome and satisfying meal,” says Keri. “Studies suggest that adults who skip breakfast have a higher body mass index and with two-thirds of Americans overweight, eating a morning meal is an important step in keeping your waist trim. Keep a healthy staple product on-hand at all times so you can prepare something nutritious in just a few minutes. Thomas’ Bagel Thins bagels make it easy to eat well and stay satisfied!”
