I like them,but only use them in emergency type situations where Ijust don't have anything else. Protein bars and other "protein" foods that are manufactured (cookies, cereals, bread, chips, etc.) are what I call "frankenfood"--- just because they are low carb does not mean they are good for you. Whenever I can I eat REAL food-- but if I need to grab something and don't want to eat crap, they are good in a pinch.

I have a whole Cookies and Cream every afternoon, it is my second snack of the day. it would be hard to make my Protein goal without them since i no longer have shakes.

LOVE them. i am partial to Cookies and cream, and the cookie dough ones are pretty good too.

I was told by my nutritionist never to eat a Protein bar that has more carbs than Protein.< /p>

I've experimented in the past just for fun because I doubted the Fiber content. I ate one for Breakfast , one for lunch and one for dinner and drank my usual 64 oz of Water. I weigh every day. I had a gain of 2 lbs that time. I know everyone says our weight fluctuates from day to day, but mine doesn't move more than .5 usually from one day to the next.

Glad to hear someone else say they didn't like the Peanut Butter cups but loved the bars. I bought a bunch of different bars and some Peanut Butter cups at GNC a few weeks ago and thought I'd give them a try. I tried the pnut butter cups first and OMG, I thought they tasted like bug spray!! Bleh, bleh, bleh!!! Couldn't spit it out fast enough and couldn't get rid of that horrid taste for hours. So, maybe it is just those and I might like the bars if I give them a try. I'd been scare to taste them actually. :-)

I HATED the Peanut Butter cups. Once you have been to Reece's there is no compare..LOL But I love Quest bars. There are a couple flavors I don't like, but overall they are a win for me.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
