Default Meal Replacement Bars/ Protein Bars - 02-06-2011, 02:13 PM

Soo Im looking for a good Meal replacement bar. I used to love the Muscle tech all natural Nitro-Tech Peanut butter bars. Lately Ive had the Met Rx colossal Big 100 bars. Anyone got any suggestions or thoughts on these or other bars?

I like Supreme Protein and Oh Yeah! Bars. Both taste good and don't have too much sugar.

The big 100 is pretty good.
EAS has a low carb bar that is delicious, it's like a chocolate dipped rice crispy treat. It's not enough for a meal replacement but they work good to deal with sweettooth cravings.

Nice guys keep them coming! I like the Big 100 bars, just wasnt sure if there was something better as they contain a ton of stuff and I wasnt sure about that! The brownies Met-Rex makes too are tasty as hell!!

I haven't had any bars or anything in a long time, but when I was working a lot I would have one every now and then if I was busy at work. I know they really aren't the best thing for you because of the sugar and fat, but I was wondering if there was any general percentage or ratio that is decent for these bars to keep your protein, carbs, fat, etc?

Just curious as well.

Try to watch the saturated fat. Majority of protein bars(at least the good tasting ones lol) are loaded with it. As well as sugar.

My bars have 7g Sat. no Trans Fat and 28g sugars.. I'll probably switch brands once this box is gone and hopefully by then ill be working on cutting fat, not bulking so much.

My 2 cents is this. There is no replacement for a meal.. but if I had to eat one id eat the met rx brownie. But there are better things out there.

Yeah I agree there are better things out there like a can of Tuna. Plenty of Protein and not all the fat and sugar added.

Don't worry so much about the iodine. You would not be eating 10 cans a day. LOL.

But like Matt said the saturated fat in most of these bars are hidden. You almost would do better to buy an extra jug of protein and get some oatmeal and find a recipe for your own. They have a decent shelf life and that is what is the biggest concern. Preservatives in all the bars you will be buying always have hidden things that bring down the nutritional content.

Yeah, that was always my concern. I would honestly try to limit them to 1 a week and would have one at work in case of "emergency" or whatnot. And that was when if I wasn't concerned with putting on too much weight.

I have thought about making my own like Mac said. Anyone have any good recipes that don't involve getting crazy ingredients?

Both the sugar and saturated fat are high in these as well. Personally if I am going to get that much saturated fat from a meal, then it is coming from a steak

Yep because it is full of cholesterol and cholesterol is good for Testosterone production. In turn beef makes you " STRONG AS BULL "

Cholesterol can be a double-edged sword. Just have to find a balance and keep plenty of fiber in your diet too. That will help taper down the bad #'s.

Good edit Rick

My quick snack at work is a sandwich round {whole grain} 2 Tbs. smart balance peanut butter. Wash it down with 1 scoop whey mixed with 1 cup skim milk and 1/4 cup water.

Peanut butter= 190 cal. 3g sat fat, 12g mono fat, 7g pro, 3g sugar
whey=100 cals 20g pro.
milk= 12g sugar, 8g pro. 130 cal
sandwich round= 100 cal, 0 sat fat, 19g carbs 4g pro

40g pro
34g carb
16g fat
510 calories

What I like about this meal is it's cheap easy to carry and way lower in artificial crap and preservatives. You can get all this stuff at the grocery store too but if you want to save some money get the whey from the IPYU store.

Instead of a shaker cup I mix my shakes in a used water bottle and toss it when I am done.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.
