Can someone recommend a good PURE protein bar? The ones I've seen lately have way too many carbs (may use as a restricted) but wanna take the guesswork out of it.

I spent way too much time in the grocery store pouring over the nutrition labels.

Tell me what protein bars (brand & flavors) worked for you and still allowed you to still lose weight?

I like the PB and Chocolate and the S'mores the best, the 1.76 ounce size.

What about this as a replacement for IP?

I've been alternating the EAS Carb Advantage Shakes with the PureProtein Shakes. Thanks!




Yes, all the Pure Protein Bars are considered restricted.

I have used the Pure Protein Bars since I started this plan and they have not hindered my weightloss. I LOVE the Blueberry Crumb Cake, Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Caramel Surprise. I also have used the Detour Bars and I love all the flavors that they have.

I keep track of the alternative products I eat on my blog and write reviews as I go, although lately I've been broke so just using the cheap powder I have.


also http://www.dietdirect.com , specifically wonderslim, bariwise and proti-diet.
I look forward to your alternatives recipe book! Thanks!

I agree with you they are awesome. I have been maintaining since September and still have a bar with my 2 cups of vegetables for lunch. I have also started using the Detour bar for variety. I always rotate the bars so I never eat the same.

Ok guys. I bought some IP premade pudding cups at a very steep price!! But I've fallen in love!!! I bought them for the camper/beach, love them refrigerated!! Is there a suitable alternative? I order from proteinwell and Nashua on a regular basis as I'm on alternatives. Thanks!!!

How about the Atkins bars? I see they have some with no sugar and high in fiber...just not sure about sugar alcohol impact...but almost all I saw today at walmart were only 1-3 net carbs (total carbes minus fiber and minus sugar alcohols)...anyone using as your restricted bar?
Thanks
Jake

I posted this on another thread and it was suggested I post it here:
I have a question, the last two times I have had my bar (I use the pure protien bars and am on day 16) I get really really light headed and almost sick when I eat them. It almost feels like a sugar rush and then I just crash, I want to go to sleep. Has anyone else had this problem?
I am wondering if it is the Carbs or ?? Really weird.
A friend gave me a Simply Bar the other day which did not do that to me, but it was soooo good (COCOA +!) I am afraid to have them in the house. I would appreciate any feed back.
Thanks so much and congratulations to all of you 100%ers!

Lots of people use the Pure Protein bars and really like them. But I find they have a stronger aftertaste, the same problem I have with the Detour bars.
I don't have any of the side effects you mentioned though but I think people react differently to some ingredients in products such as they taste different to some people. Maybe some people have more serious reactions.
Perhaps you have a reaction to sugar alcohols.

On another note, I ordered two boxes of Protidiet Chocolate dream bars because they looked soooo good in the picture. Chocolate Nightmare is more like it. They are so hard they are almost impossible to break and taste like that awful cheap chocolate.
They do only have six carbs though so I will use them up. But I'll need some really good veggies to go along with them. Man is this really me saying I need veggies to help get down "chocolate"???
