Protein Bars: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly! (Fat Loss)

Stuck to chose what bar to use for fat loss? Read this article which will help you in choosing the right one.

The Good!

PhD Diey Whey Bar

PhD Diet Whey bars, in my opinion, are the BEST bar you can buy when aiming for fat loss, with only 1g of Sugars, 4.5g of Fat, and a whopping 25g of Protein per bar. Not only the great nutritional line-up, PhD Diet Whey bars also contain fat loss ingredients and good added fats, such as CLA, L-Carnitine and Flaxseed powder which all helps when it comes to dropping the pounds.

With the good nutritional macros and the great taste in all flavours, PhD Diet Whey bars are the Number 1 bar to chose when getting ripped for the summer and need a healthy meal replacement.

PhD Diet Whey Bars £19 for 12.

The Bad!

EAS Myoplex Diet Bar

So, you look around for a good healthy bar to use in your daily diet, you see the Myoplex DIET bar, but when you take a look at the ingredients, you see that it is loaded with sugar!

Here are some of the ingredients of this bar:

fructose-glucose syrup
milk chocolate
invert sugar syrup

You may look at the bar and see 27g of carbs, which, isn't too bad, BUT 23g of these carbs are sugars coming from the ingredients above! Which is basically making this bar like a normal chocolate bar with added protein.

The Ugly!

Maximuscle Promax Diet Bars

Whilst the Maximuscle Promax Diet Bars are full of fibre to keep you full, they do contain over 10g of sugars per bar. Which in my opinion is too much for a fat loss bar.

The thing that puts me off this bar is that after the protein blend, the top ingredient is inverted sugar syrup

    All protein bars taste like ****e except supreme, which is loaded with calories.

    'Supreme' are the best, there's no competition as far as taste goes. I'd choose them over most normal chocolate bars if they were nutritionally identical.

    What's the worst that could happen?
