Bars

In today's on-the-run society, where sitting down for a meal is sometimes an impossible luxury, the emergence of meal replacement bars & health protein bars may seem to be just what the doctor ordered. Though these pocket-sized meal replacement bars & health protein bars once found favor primarily with serious athletes looking for a competitive edge, now anyone who feels the need for a nutritional boost may keep a few stashed in a purse or a briefcase. Health protein bars are a convenient alternative for someone who would otherwise be reaching for a doughnut or using the vending machines for snacks at the office.

There are literally hundreds of these health protein bars and portable products competing for shelf space at gyms, health-food stores, and supermarkets, but not all bars are created equal. With tons to chose from including high-carbohydrate bars, protein bars, energy bars, fiber bars, breakfast bars, meal-replacement bars, and diet bars to name a few, you head may be feeling a little dizzy.

When you're choosing and trying out nutrition bars, a number of factors may influence your selection. Here's a few examples:

- If looking for fiber, aim for 3 to 5 grams of fiber per bar.

- For weight loss make sure you check out the calories and fats. Look for a bar that's low in fat (less than 5 grams of fat).

- If you're shopping for a meal-replacement bar, choose one that has about 15 or more grams of protein, along with some fiber, and fortified with about 35% of the RDAs for vitamins and minerals. Meal-replacement bars tend to be larger than other bars, with proportionately higher levels of carbohydrates, fats, and protein.
