How to Use Protein Bars to Build Muscle | Bodybuilding Diet

One of the things that I get a lot of questions
about are protein bars and there’s a lot of protein bars on the market. Some of them are nothing more than glorified
candy bars because they’re devoid of some of the necessary nutrients. But in fact, a good quality protein bar can
be a great resource to have as a meal replacement even in some cases and, depending upon the
nutritional profile of the protein bar, you can get the calories that your body needs
as well. They come in different sizes. This protein bar here is a big protein bar. You’ve got probably almost 400 calories in
just this one bar. And that’s a bit too much for some so you
might to even break that bar into two but they come in smaller sizes. The key with protein bars is to remember that
it’s a way for you to give your body a quick amount of protein and hopefully, possibly
some fiber because not all bars are created equal. Some protein bars are just filled with way
too much sugar and in some cases even a lot of fruit juice and fructose. Fructose is going to hinder your body’s ability
to burn fat properly. So look at the ingredients of the protein
bar and make sure there’s adequate amounts of protein in it. It should be at least anywhere from 15 to
20 grams of protein depending upon how many of these bars you’re going to have and how
you’re going utilize them, you might be able to get away with less than that, but you want
to make sure there’s also some good, a few grams of fiber at least in there. A lot of these bars are using different types
of carbs. They’re called net carbs. They use what’s called sugar alcohol which
is a carbohydrate source that’s suppose to not have a negligible impact on your blood
sugar therefore they don’t’ cause insulin swings. So you can kind of use these protein bars
not only throughout the day as a meal replacement and get some added protein but you can also
use them later on at night or after dinner if you want something sweet to eat. So the jury’s still out on the sugar alcohol
or whether or not they really, truly do have any impact on your blood sugar. In most cases I would say, most people or
most clients that I have worked with don’t have a problem digesting them. Although, because of some of the sugar alcohol
that are in them, they do sometimes tend to cause a little bit of a stomach disturbance. So you want to try them, see which one’s work
best for you. Make sure the bar’s got protein, adequate
protein rather. Make sure the bar’s got low in sugar and make
sure it’s got some fiber and you’ll do good with utilizing these protein bars.

  1. You forgot to mention the type of protein. most protein bars are made from soy protein which is one of the worst source of protein you can get. read the ingredient list and look for whey protein bar. if it says soy and whey chances are it's mostly soy and a bit of whey so they can add it to the label. skip these ones as well.

  2. Hey this guy knows what he's talking about. And I'm talking about smilestreets. Which ones do you prefer smilestreets? I can't find any without soy.
