I’m a big fan of the Oh Yeah ONE bars. I find most Protein bars are too sweet now but the OYO Almond Bliss are less so and give an Almond Joy-ish kind of flavor when I’m too lazy to put together my own high protein meal.

These are my favorites. I think they're the same as GreenTealael's Great Value bars she showed above. I get them at costco in a super-sized box.

At this point, I don't eat them very often (maybe once or twice a month). I mostly keep them on hand in case I know I'll be going somewhere that food choices are slim/non-existent such as traveling or work-related affairs. They help me avoid making REALLY bad choices. My husband keeps them in his locker at work because he doesn't have a cafeteria available and if his lunch either didn't satisfy or he has to work overtime, he has something to keep him going.

These bars are a little high in carbs. Hence, the slippery slope. I've tried many of the other Protein Bars and don't care for the Protein flavor. To me, it tastes so artificial. So, I settled on these because I can recognize most of the ingredients just by looking at it as well as the ingredient list.

Look closely... Too much saturated fat.. Too much sodium.. And sugars.. And 190kcal for maybe 10g Protein?

I like the Vega bars and Clif Builder bars. The No-Cow ones are tasting quite good as well. (food police, don't waste your time to b*tch about the macros, please)

However, I rarely have an appetite for them since a whole while. I guess I ate too much of them in the first months after my revision. I always have some bars in my desk for 24 h shifts at work though.

I think they are the same except i can't have the Nature Valley brand because they aren't Kosher (i think it was the glycerin or gelatin)

there are many many many paths to health & they are all very individualized. What works for some many not work for others.

That is up to the individual and they are allowed to choose. Free will.

Some of us have found balance and are maintaining at goal weight. I hope you do as well.

However your snide remarks are unwelcomed in a forum meant for support.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
