Talking Substitution

Hey there everyone!

I started LA Weight Loss. I have been on it two days even though I was suppose to start it almost a week ago. Anyway, the bars are going to be too expensive. I did the ebay thing and that should last be awhile. I am tempted to do the Luna bars also BUT I wanted to know if you all knew anything about SoNutty bars (15g Protein) and the Slim Fast Optima Bars (8g Protein) Should I be looking at the Carb or Sugar content of the bars? I am not buying any bars tomorrow when I go in...I am going to buy some Luna bars until my shipment comes in!

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Hi Miss Jo!

First of all, most of us have substituted Luna's for Lite's since the calorie counts are about the same -160-180 with similar amounts of protein. It's just easier for me to not worry about any extra calories in the other bars.

For comparison
Caramel Bars
Cals 160
Fat 4g (sat fat 2g)
Sodium 150mg
Potassium 140mg
Total Carb 23g
Fiber 1g
Sugars 16g
Protein 8g

Honey Nougat Bars
Cals 180
Fat 4g (sat fat 3g)
Cholesterol 5mg
Sodium 65 mg
Potassium 70mg
Total Carb 29g
Dietary fiber < 1g
Sugars 21 g
Protein 8 g

Hope this helps!
