Protein bars for me come in very very handy! For those of us with jobs who can sit and eat 6 ounces of chicken, 4 ounces of brocoli, and a 6 ounce baked potato at work every 2 hours, protein bars for me are great for work. However they can be an excuse on the weekends for me. Technically I could wake up early and cook everything and clean all the dishes from it, place it in assorted tubberware, pack it in a sizeable cooler, throw in some ice packs and silverware, and interupt everyones plans and eat it while travelling and enjoying time with my family, then take all that crap home, wash it all out, dump the ice, clean the dishes, etc., or I could just wolf down a friggin protein bar!

I really only use protien bars to curb an intense sugar craving. Definitely only one bar for me : http://eas.com/product/advantedge-ca...nutrition-bars

That's how it is with me at work, so I will bring a bar every now and then and only have them while at work, just to keep it limited.

Pretty good read on the Protein bar. I like bars ok but avoid them due to my work. I work with clients on special diets and if they see you with a bar they don't know that you reasearched it for nutrition all they see is a candy bar and they want it. No body wants my lunch when it's a thin bread with peanut butter and a glass of egg whites. Still I keep a bar or two on hand incase I need a quick meal.


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.

I'll post a breakfast video I get it done quick and easy with good nutrition. I think breakfast is my best meal as far as nutrition.
