The Need for a Protein Bar
I always recommend graze style eating or rather, frequent “mini meals” throughout the day. Small amounts of the right balance of nutrients throughout the day is ideal for losing weight, leaning out, stabilizing blood sugars, speeding up your metabolism and fighting hunger and fatigue. It is not always convenient however to have a healthy prepared meals with you at all times.
The problem is that the VAST majority of protein bars on the market today are complete garbage and have no greater nutrition value then a dollar store candy bar!
When you look at a bar and the first four ingredients are soy protein, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup and sugar, you know there’s something wrong…
There are a FEW protein bars that I DO approve of and I will recommend them here.
My rule is that they need to be natural, high in protein, gluten free and can’t contain the words “sugar”, or “high fructose corn syrup” and OF COURSE they need to taste great!
So to make a long story short, if you’ve been looking for a great-tasting, high-quality, FOOD-based protein bars, I highly recommend you watch the video above and check out the products below…
