Check out Quest nutrition, or Premier nutrition.

Premier can be found @ Sams club, Walmart, & costco. I've always bought Quest online.

Word of warning, there is really no such thing as a good Protein bar. They are nice for occasional use when you just don't have the time to stop & eat healthy, but ultimately they are all glorified candy bars.

Don't overbuy the Protein bars. I have about 20 in the pantry. I cannot eat a whole one, maybe 1/4 occasionally. Very dense. Quest brand. I envisioned my husband and I having them for lunch but tastes change and we have not wanted them.

I totally ^^^agree^^^ with this.

Also Pure Protein has a pretty good line of bars that you can find at Target, Wal-Mart, most grocery stores, etc.

GNC sells Quest otherwise you have to order them online (not sure if any other stores are carrying them.)

My advice is to only use them as necessary. I met someone at support group who was eating them as his primary source of protein. :blink:

Also remember you can cut them in half and only eat half a bar. The other half won't go bad, and you can save it in a snack size ziplock for another day. I keep a Protein Bar in a hard-shell eyeglass case in my purse (not that you have a purse ;) but maybe a glovebox in your car?) that is filled with a Protein Bar as an emergency in case there is just no other good choice around. I keep it in the case so it can live there for a few months without turning into a crumbled mess for carrying it around for so long. :)

Quest chocolate chip cookie dough. Soo good, escpecially heated. I would recommend buying them on Amazon, rather than through Quest Nutrition, if you're planning to buy a box. Be careful though, they can be "sliders". I also really like Think Thin creamy Peanut Butter. They are the consistency of a soft candy bar.

The best Protein I have found is Carnation Instant Breakfast in sugar free. Mixed with Fat Free milk it gives you about 16 grams of Protein. It is smooth and not clumpy. It taste like chocolate milk.

The best protien bar I've found are from Detour low sugar Caramel Peanut. You can purchase them at the Vitamin Shoppe or individually at even QuickTrip. They have 30g of protien, 340 calories, 5 net carbs and only 5 grams of sugar. They are suprisingly very good and filling. Hope this helps!

I like Adkins Protein bars (just read the box, some have more Protein than others). Also, Life Choice High Protein Bars (double chocolate) - 21 grams of protein. You can get them at Walmart at the Cereal aisle (inexpensive).

I'm also going to look into some of these others Protein Bars that others have suggested.

Remember that you can always cut a Protein bar in half. Some of them are way too many calories (and just too big) for a sleever, but half a bar works great.

I agree that they are best used as an occasional treat, but that's just my opinion.

5 net carbs is great, but 340 calories is more than I tend to eat in a meal. Hard to balance.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
