I’m 5 Months post op and I’m looking for a good Protein Bar that obviously doesn’t have a lot of carbs or sugar. Any recommendations?

I like Pure Protein. 200 calories for 20 grams of protein.

They've got 16g of Carbs....but I eat carbs, so...

Best wishes finding your perfect protein bar. And be careful with protein bars...they're a hidden slider food. Easy to overindulge:)

Yes definitely be careful, they can be sliders for many people.

I like Quest bars and Power Crunch. I also like the new costco ones that are similar to quest but the Kirkland brand.

And now that I’m at goal and eat more carb I like Perfect Bars and RX Bars.

I second Quest Bars for low carb/high Protein. Also, taste wise the are among the best

I like DNX bars and Epic Bars are good but not as good as DNX. They are made with meat and vegetables. Low carb and sugar but I don’t think they have as much Protein as the others described. The DNX bar I have been getting is the grass fed beef, sweet potato, fennel. It has 11 grams of protein, 160 calories, 5 grams sugar, 7 grams carb, 1 gram dietary Fiber - but made from food.

Grass Fed Beef, Organic Medjool Dates, Powdered Egg Whites, Organic Sweet Potato powder, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Dried Goji Berries, Organic Spices, Organic Ground Fennel Seed, Organic Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Organic Sacha Inchi Powder, Celery juice Powder (celery powder, sea salt), Organic Moringa Oleifera Powder.

Most Protein Bars are secretly loaded with carbs and sugars. And most taste crappy.

But i like the taste of pure Protein bars. I actually recently used their Cookies and cream flavor and broke it up and added it to halo top cookie dough ice cream for a treat. It was awesome and low calorie.

Those have quite a few carbs as well, but maybe you count net carbs? Anyway the OP is on liquids and puréed foods do not quite there yet—

Oh no to clarify i know it has carbs- i just don't care because the only time i eat them is when i put it in halo top ice cream as a rare treat. ( to me it just taste better than all the other ones i've tried) I don't eat Protein bars regularly, most of them taste awful to me, but whatever works for anyone else works too.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
