I haven't tried any of the other Quest products but the quest bars have been a staple in my house from day 1. I LOVE them and eat them every day. I buy them by the box instead of individual bars. The only one that I don't like is mixed berry and I'm not crazy about the vanilla almond crunch. My favorites are double chocolate chunk, chocolate chip cookie dough, and white chocolate raspberry. Those are the ones I eat the most of. Sometimes I eat them for Breakfast, in which case, I prefer the banana nut or cinnamon roll. I also keep some of the Peanut Butter & jelly, lemon creme pie, and apple pie on hand. Yes, I really keep some of all of those on hand at all times. I keep them in my locker at work, in my purse, and in my lunch bag that I take to work. I'm never without my quest bars. There have been many times when a quest bar saved me from "cheating" because I didn't have anything better to eat when I was hungry. I LOVE them!

Oh for the love I have for the mighty, infectiously delicious Quest Bar! Every flavor, a small masterpiece. Absolutely the most addicting thing I put in my mouth these days. Eat half? Yeah, I tried that too. I had to cut myself off because I got to where that was just about all I wanted to eat. Three a day. Four. Save one for when I'm on the computer late at night. I will be honest with you. I just about sabotaged myself by ending up with too many carbs in a day ( I'm also diabetic) Even though they are great Protein, sadly, they had to go to the wayside just like so many other tasty things have....

I love these bars. They are so good and anything that has Fiber and a good chunk of Protein is good by me. My favorites are strawberry cheesecake, double chocolate chunk, and apple pie Yum! They are a little pricey but you can get a good value on a 12 count box on Amazon for about 25.00. You can also order them from the Quest site or go to GNC among other places.

The carb count on them is pretty high. I read an article that said that the Fiber count on them is wrong.

I do eat them and love them, but I don't eat them every day. I prefer Power Crunch bars. 9 carbs.

Thanks for all the great advice! I am 4 weeks post op and I am going on a 10 day vacation and very nervous about eating during that time. I am concerned about getting proper Protein for my meals. My nutritionist told me to find some good Protein Bars to bring along just in case I had a hard time finding a good protein option for a meal. When I read this yesterday, I immediately ordered several to take with me to try.

If you go online you can order individual packets of U njury Protein Shakes. I took these to Italy with me. So glad I did. A half bottle of Water and one packet and it saved me for breakfast a few times.

I think I must be the only person that didn't like them. After all the good reviews, I went to GNC and bought two of all the bars that looked appealing to me.. but I just did not care for them at all. The flavor was ok for what it was, but I was not happy with the texture at all and I'm usually into dense foods. I've had Clif bars, Luna bars, etc. and didn't have a problem with them.. I was actually pretty disappointed that I didn't like them as much as everyone else. I ended up throwing half of them away.

White chocolate raspberry is my favorite by far. I also like cookie dough and vanilla almond. I can't eat a whole one, though. Something about all that fiber/protein at one time makes me nauseous.

Oh I should add while I do eat them they are in the process of being sued for incorrect nutrition information, they may have more carb, calories, less fiber ect...then what they are claiming. You will have to look up the lawsuit to see.

Love Quest bars! My favorites have changed, so I highly recommend revisiting some if you don't like them at first. I didn't like the white choc. raspberry one, and now it's my favorite! chocolate chip cookie dough was my favorite, and now I find it a bit too salty. I order mine from luckyvitamin.com, which lets you order by bar or by box, and it's still the same $2.09/bar.

My husband is a Quest bar hater, because he doesn't like the texture. Basically it's Protein powder held together with a thick fiber Syrup. But he likes them cooked/incorporated into another recipe.

These are delish!! I've made them a whole bunch of times..

Quest Bar Peach (or Cherry) Cobbler (4 servings)

Ingredients:

Crumble:

Filling:

  • 2 medium peaches or 37 cherries

  • 1 scoop Protein Powder (I use Body Fortress Vanilla - 30 grams of protein/scoop)

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Optional Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons Fat Free whipped cream

Method:

Preheat oven (I use a tabletop toaster oven) to 400 degrees. Roll Quest Bar out with rolling pin (I put the bar in a folded piece of wax paper so it doesn't stick to the pin), spray pan, and bake for 3 minutes or until slightly browned and crisped. Remove from oven and cool. Reset oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, stir together the peaches, Protein Powder, stevia and cinnamon. Divide between 4 small ramekins. Take the Quest Bar and pulse in a mini blender FIRST then add coconut oil, butter extract and sweetener. Stir in dry oats. Sprinkle on top of the peaches. Bake for 15 minutes.

Pro: 13.75; Cal: 126.5 (peach) or 135.5 (cherry); Carb: 8.5 (peach) or 10.5 (cherry); Fat: 3.5

Fat Free Whipped Cream: 0 - 5 - 1 - 0

There are many more recipes. Check out Quest's "cheat clean" videos!

Like I mentioned before, Quest Bars are basically Protein powder with a fiber syrup. It's called VitaFiber, which you can order from here: http://vitafiber.myshopify.com/. I haven't tried them yet, but there are a whole bunch of options for making your own "Quest" bars.

Pecan Pie Quest bar

- 1/4 cup caramel flavored protein powder

- 2 tbsp VitaFiber

- 7 pecans

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/2 baby cookie, crumbled into small pieces

They have to be microwaved. They are horrible if you don't microwave them first. It's only about 10 sec in the microwave and they go from disgusting to delicious.

I read that story awhile ago about the law suit regarding their claims of the fiber count.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

      3. Arabesque

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
