I also have learned protein is big in controlling hunger...but what's up with all the bars??? Which one? When do you eat them...how often...how much? How regularly?
Kashi cereal and shakes are a good choice because they are high in fiber, and have a moderate amount of protein in them. In addition, foods that are high in fiber helps one stay full longer, not to mention the protein. The Kashi cereal in the morning is good for staying full for a while, I advise the shake with an apple with peanut butter or something, and snack on veggies and fruits besides your sensible dinner. If you don't like that plan, there are MANY protein bars out there, it's just a matter of preference.
