Amped up Pure Protein Bars



Recommended Posts

I just purchased some Pure Protein Bars and noticed that they've gone from 20g protein/bar to 33! The calories increased from approx 200 to 280. The bars were 1.76 oz., now 2.75 oz. For me (not a Protein fan) this is great!

p.s. I'm eating one for Breakfast and can't eat it all in one sitting. But that's ok, I can work on it all morning.

What are the carbs? Are these gluten free by any chance?

Total carbs 26, 4g sugar, 3g Fiber. Not GF. I don't worry about carbs (just sugar), so this is perfect for me.

Hmmm I have a box of Lemon Ones, let's SEE. Rice and Tapioca derivatives, inulin, milk, soy. and Tree nuts. So I'm not thinking Gluten- bearing. Calories in each 190, total carbs 16 gr, has 4 gr of dietary Fiber, 2 gr of sugar alcohols, maybe Splenda? 20 gr Protein, total fats 7gr, 5 mg cholesterol and 100mg Na, the fats break down to 4gm saturated. but NO trans-fats.
Honest truth why I bought my Lemon Ones? They are smooth , I can eat them sans my dentures, so many bars have barely chopped up nuts in THEM. And we owe Canada a Thank You because THAT'S where mine were produced. Hope This Helps a LITTLE, okay?🍫

I am having to have a Protein Bar a day too and like you have it for Breakfast because I can't get enough food Protein in due to ongoing nausea. I look at the total carbs though as they are pretty much the same effect on the body sugar level wise, I find if I have 15g carbs or less per 'meal' I am fine, any higher and I dump, also why diabetics go low carb not just low sugar. But I guess for us depending on how small our intake is per day it is a different ball game.

I did 20g net carbs for so long I can't get my head away from it, lucky that even if I have 1 meal a day with 15g carbs I never go over 20g just because of the volume of food required.

For some reason I am rambling, so I shall shush now lol I do wish we could get some of the USA foods in UK tho, the range here is pants unless you buy from Amazon or eBay then they cost like a hundred bucks for 12 bars lol

Since I can't eat it all at once, I guess I'm getting about 13g of carbs per "meal", but since I don't dump and don't have blood sugar issues, it's really a moot point for me.

yep I get you, :D I bet most of us are low carb (under 100g day) anyway. I'm the same as you can't eat a whole one at once, I would love some delicious savoury ones premade. I can't believe how much I hate the sweetness now.

Thanks @Orchids&Dragons, that's a huge improvement of the cals to Protein ratio! Good to know.

What are your favorite flavors?

I like the deluxe chocolate. I got these at Walmart.com. I was just in the store and they're still stocking the 20g ones

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
