Hey guys! Do you guys think that protein bars are a good source of calories? I tend to eat RX Bars, just wanted to hear your thoughts on these types of foods. RX Bars claim to be zero added sugar. Thanks!
On the same note, what dog you guys think about the sugar alcohols used in most of these bars? Are these any healthier than added sugar?
Personally, I prefer meals these days. I was a big protein bar/shake guy in the past. I just find better appetite control, satiety, and honestly performance from eating meals of Whole Foods.
I think companies can claim “no added sugar” if sugar hasn’t been added during production or packaging even though most of the ingredients are predominantly sugar. So it’s a bit of a scam.
Building your diet around good lean protein sources wouldn’t”t be a bad idea. If I have bars available, I will probably end up over eating 🐷
