I was wondering does anyone use protein bars?If you do is
it for a meal or snack?Also which ones do you use?
I don't follow Atkins Plan,but I do like his protein bars and shakes.
I also like Peak protein,although it is high in calories {310}for
1 bar.I sometimes have one for lunch,or if I am really hungry after

The protein in those bars is pretty low quality and should be saved for emergency use only. I will try to find you that article on bars and post the link.

I don't know, I like some shakes, but don't like the bars. I can't be much of a help!

sorry.. but if I'm going to eat all those calories I want a real chocolate bar!! for one third the price. Tried one once (to see what all the talk was about) I spit it out! Gross!

I don't use the Protein Bars, but I do use the Balance Bars and the Pria bars as a part of my daily diet. The Balance Bar I use as a meal, and it has 210 calories and I think it's very satisfying. The Pria bars are great because they are only 110 calories and I use one as an afternoon snack, and one as a dessert. They are really great! They curb my cravings for chocolate or sweets, but I'm still staying on track.

Alot of these bars are full of filler and hidden carbs!

I love the Atkins Advantage bars...My fave is the Pralines and Cream or the Cookies and Cream. I sometimes will use them for a meal replacement(usually breakfast as I am not a big breakfast kind of person), or as a snack.

I like the fact that they are only 2 g of carbs per bar.

Jen.. look how much weight you have lost!! You rock!!! I'm so proud of you :D :bravo:

I will have a harvest bar when I don't have time for breakfast - don't think it counts as a protein bar.

Miss Chris - Couldn't get through on your link.

I love the chocolate mint Zone bars, YUM! I'll have half for a snack or the whole thing for lunch if I'm on the go.

I love the Zone Bars, almost all flavors.

I just newly discovered the EAS AdvantEdge Protein Bars. They're palatable and have about 25 grams of protein for 250 calories. They keep me going ALL morning. I love them.

Since the thought of cooking breakfast makes me want to gag, and I would rather sleep for 10 minutes and eat in the car than just about anything else in the world, I DEPEND on protein bars for breakfast. I don't really care if they have nuclear waste in them, as long as I'm not binging on McD's drive-thru or Linn Waan's Lucky Donuts, I'm starting my day off right.

More on the good, bad, and ugly of protein bars!

Okay.. I must admit..
I was tempted again to try these things.

I had the Protein plus bar... 220 cals.. wonderful!! very very filling..
15 g of protein and 26 g of carbs... but it was tasty

Last time I had one it tasted like crushed up vitamins. Blech.

Maybe I will have to give EAS a try.

I eat protein bars twice a day, only in between meals if I feel hungry. I get mine though from the Medical Weight Loss Clinic. It is their own special brands. Though there is another company (that my clinic also goes through for bars) that you may be able to buy from.

Just go to www.advitech.com

Click on English
Then click on "Products and Services"
Then click on "Dietary Protein Supplements" located near the top of the screen.
It will then give you a list of all the bars and stuff they have along with the fat, calories, protein, ect...

I have used these bars with my program too and they are GREAT. Especially the Honey Coconut Bars. DELICIOUS. It tastes like real chocolate. Definatly different from any other protein bar I have ever tried!

Each bar has 5 grams of fat or less, and 150 calories.

I'm not sure if you can order off of their site though. If not, maybe you could e-mail them, and inquire about the bars, and see how much they would cost, plus shipping.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask :)
