I'd be leery of those bars not just because of the high carb but also the super high protein. IP bars range from 12-18g protein, those bars are almost twice that (they are probably designed for bodybuilders/athletes, not quite the same as what we need). This diet is pretty finely tuned for what we use it for, more is not always better even with protein.
Tx for the clarification...one day I'll remember the formula!
