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.

Protein One! These are the best I found in terms of no added sugar, low fat and calories, 10 grams protein, and taste great. About $4 for a box of 5 bars.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
