A question I get from clients often is “If I don’t have access to whole/natural food, is a protein bar a good choice?” 🤔🤓
The truth is… Most protein bars are glorified candy bars. They are highly processed, filled with preservatives, sugar or sugar alcohols and stupid amounts of fiber.💩
It’s super important to check the label. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen ‘protein’ bars that have less than 12g protein but loaded with carbs and fat. Or they are labeled ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ but they have ingredients list of 15+ things I can’t pronounce.🤐
I’m truly not a fan of these packaged ‘fitness foods’. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I ate a protein bar.
A better option would be beef jerky(low sugar) or nut (lightly salted or raw) or to actually practice fasting during these periods of time away from optimal food sources. 🥜
