Why Choose to Eat Smart for Life

When someone takes their first bite into a fresh Smart for Life Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie and tastes the unparalleled, decadent flavor and soft texture, it’s usually hard for them to believe that the cookie also has incredible health benefits. Since the start of Smart for Life, Dr. Sass and his team strive to not only create products that taste amazing but that also have a positive impact on your health and well-being.

Each and every Smart for Life product is strategically formulated by certified bariatric doctors and professional bakers to ensure that you don’t have to sacrifice delectable flavor when opting for healthy snacks. Most of Smart for Life's Smart Cookies and protein bars are low sugar, NON-GMO, K-dairy, naturally preserved, and contains 0g trans fat, no artificial ingredients, and no cholesterol. Smart for Life offers products that fit into every lifestyle including, gluten-free, vegan, and keto.

Appetite Suppressing

Our Smart for Life cookies and protein bars help suppress your hunger. People following the Smart for Life Program rarely complain of hunger because our products are specifically designed to help keep you feeling satisfied while still providing you with the energy you need to make it through the day. We recommend people drink a glass of water with our products to help activate the super fiber. When combined with water, the fiber in our products expands inside your stomach causing you to not feel hungry for many hours.


Our cookies also support cardiovascular health and help lower cholesterol. We include a heart-healthy organic flax meal/fish oil blend in our cookies. Three Smart Cookies provide a full serving of Omega 3’s ALA, EPA, and DHA. You can also reap the benefits of vital antioxidants that are provided by our cookies through the fruit ingredient, especially organic blueberries, and also in the 50% cocoa content of our organic chocolate chips.

Good Sources of Protein & Fiber

Our products owe much of their success to their high content of protein and fiber! This is one of the main ways our cookies and protein bars help people lose weight. This perfect combination of fiber and protein helps keep your energy levels high and hunger at bay, all while burning stubborn fat. Protein boosts your metabolism and helps you lose weight by burning fat and maintaining muscle mass. Fiber helps you maintain healthy digestion and slows down the process so you can have a more even and sustained release of energy.

Includes Collagen

We’ve recently also started adding collagen to many of our products such as our cookies, protein bars, and cupcakes. Collagen can improve skin health and the appearance of skin by benefiting elasticity and hydration. By increasing your intake of collagen, you may also be able to slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness. Collagen has also been known to help relieve joint pain, prevent bone loss, boost muscle mass, and improve gut health.

Gluten Free Low Sugar Protein Bars with Collagen


Our products don’t have the typical texture of a gluten-free product. Our cookies have a delicious, unique texture because of the combination of high-quality, premium ingredients that we pride ourselves on; including millet flour, brown rice, and soy crisp. Because many of our products are gluten-free, they will help you improve cholesterol levels and increase energy levels. Removing gluten from your diet can help you reduce your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and diabetes. Since our products are gluten-free, they make great meal replacements and snacks for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
