Protein Bar Sales
As people keep pushing the bar to get into shape, new foods and ideas surface. Now the protein bar is not a new idea, we all know this. But statistics show that Americans are always pushing the envelope along with plenty of weight. Don’t get me wrong, I am overweight as well. So I am not passing judgement on anyone here. But these bars are getting out of hand. Also everyone is making them now.
The weight loss industry has jumped in to promote products to aid in weight loss, bodybuilding, and health so all you have to do is pick your area of concern and move in. These bars are not cheap though. Depending on what you want to purchase and what type of quality you are looking for. The protein bar or RTÉ’s (ready to eat meals) is a product that mostly every store carries as well. Everything from convenience stores to supermarkets to specialty weight loss and muscle-building stores. These energy bars, can be found at health food stores, and your local gym.
For a while now these bars claim to contain enough nutrition to be a meal replacement, and now you can even purchase these bars that inflate or expand in your stomach with some water, to assure you the feeling of being completely full. Are they really all they claim to be though? Also many people are not willing to sacrifice taste, so are they good tasting? Some taste good; some don’t.
So how can you determine which bars are the best protein bars that suit your needs and wants? Sometimes you have to sacrifice taste for nutrition. Other times depending on which bar you purchase, you get them both, or you get nothing. All I can tell you is compare labels and nutritional value.
Another thing to consider are the calories, they should fall in the range of 220 to 320 (for weight loss, shoot for less than 280). That is the guideline that I stick too and it has worked for me. In addition to the protein bar, you can also supplement the protein shake to offset the taste, these taste good for the most part. In addition it gives you another way to eat a meal, without having to eat a bar, everyday before or after your work-out. If it is a bar you prefer, then keep them low in carbs-25 grams or less.
