Re: Question about nutrition bars.

It's worth a try. If you are going to eat a nutrition bar for a meal, add a piece of fruit as well.
Also, make sure the nutrition bars you buy are low in sugar and higher in protein. Some of those so called nutrion bars are not much healhtier than candy bars. Read the labels

Re: Question about nutrition bars.

I love nutrition bars! I agree that it's a good idea to read the labels. I don't really eat Slim Fast bars because they didn't have that many vitamins in them and weren't as good for you as the others. If carbs bother you, try a lower carb, low-glycemic bar. I realy like Balance bars. For something filling, I go for the Protein Power Bars (they are higher in calories and are more filling). I also like Pure Protein bars. You will have to try them and see which flavors you like best because there are SO many!

Some good snack bars that are natural without a bunch of additives are Larabars. They only have a few ingredients and I enjoy them, but they are more for a snack since they are smaller. I didn't care for a few of the flavors, but I really like the cashew cookie one.

Re: Question about nutrition bars.

The power bars are sure filling. I can't even finish a whole one. Feels like I'm trying to eat a brownie without milk half way thru they bar. :-p If you want some quick and cheap ideas to eat less and even save some cash... oatmeal is good, wheat toast with peanut butter, even apples and bananas can be filling.

Re: Question about nutrition bars.

Oh yeah when I used to eat chocolate, I definitely recommend having something to drink with those chocolate powerbars! They can be very rich, and therefore filling. I recently tried Kashi's Go Lean oatmeal cookie nutrition bar and thought it was pretty good and was definitely filling. They have lots of protein and fiber to keep you feeling good and tasted good.
