Individual protein bars

Recommended Posts

I'm traveling soon and want to figure out a preferred Protein Bar so I can bring a few with me in case of meal emergencies. Where's a good place to go buy a bunch of individual bars in person to try out? I was thinking maybe GNC? I feel a little intimidated at stores like that so I thought I'd ask in advance.

I already know that I have cravings problems with Quest bars from previous dieting, and I have some philosophical issues about Built Bar so it seems like some of the most commonly recommended ones aren't for me, so that's why I feel like I need to try a variety.

I"ve ordered online and also gotten them from places like GNC and Vitamin Shoppe. Also, some of the grocery stores I shop at carry them. Just pick up a few brands and see which ones you like.

I wonder if target carries them individually. I know that they carry a lot of Protein Bar options I just can’t recall if they sell them individually.

Regular grocery stores usually carry individual bars as well as boxes; usually they are in the same section. The ones like Atkins and Zone might be in a different section from the ones like Lara Bars. I find the Atkins ones are with the ensure drinks and SlimFast and the Lara Bars are with the "natural" foods. Atkins and Zone are sweetened with artificial sugar so they are sweeter but have fewer carbs. Lara Bars and a lot of the others are less sweet but are sweetened with fruit or other sweeteners that have a lot of sugar and carbs. I think the Quest bars are more similar to the Atkins bars. There are tons of fruit sweetened bars besides Lara Bars, but my mind is drawing a blank!

Good luck and let us know what you find.

I used to live by a grocery store that had a ton of individual options, but I moved an hour away and the ones by me now don't have the same selection, unfortunately. I'm going to check out GNC this weekend and will report back! I wanted to avoid online if possible but it sounds like there are workable options available.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
