I have the SBD bars and sometimes use them, but they have malitol in them, which can cause me to crave, so I've cut back on them lately.
They have sugar alcohols in them, so they can cause gastric upset--different amounts bother different people, so perhaps that was the cause of your stomach upset, uscarchie? Did you have problems with them before?
As many of the Beachies have mentioned, the real point of SBD is to get away from processed foods. The Kraft SBD foods, mostly, aren't aligned very well with the diet--I think that's part of the reason they changed the name from "South Beach Diet" to "South Beach Living." Supposedly Dr. A has said that he hopes people who can't commit to the entire diet will at least make healthier choices by using the Kraft foods. I know my local nutrition clinic recommends the SBD bars as the healthiest protein bars out there.
