They are a great tool for helping with weight loss. They’re convenient, healthy, and relatively inexpensive. There are hundreds of different supplement on the market.
They’re all a little bit different so it’s difficult to tell which is the best protein bar for weight loss. We’ve reviewed a number of products and tried to set out our recommendations below.
Before anything else, let’s look at some of the benefits of them. The first benefit would be convenience.
Whether your preference is pre-packaged or homemade ones, there is much convenience in having the protein bar available at any time. You can easily stick your supplement into your pocket, purse, laptop bag, or what have you.
Whether your goal is to put on some weight or shed a few pounds, they are an excellent instrument to help you accomplish either.
If your goal is the latter, the trick is not to eat too many of them in a single day as they also contain sugar and calories.
You can also use them as a meal replacement instead of eating a calorie packed sandwich or sugar snacks that don’t contain much nutritional value. However, keep in mind that they, if used as a meal replacement are best supplemented with fresh fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains.
Another benefit of them is that they help with recovery after your workout. For women looking to gain some muscle and boost their workout, they can help.
In order to get the most out of your workout, it is essential that your body is provided with the nutrients that it needs to perform at its peak and to recover from that performance.
Here are a few products that we recommend based on some of the things discussed above. I’m a big fan of the Vega bars discussed below and I eat them after workouts sometimes as well as for breakfast when I don’t have time for my shake.
Vega Sport Bars:
- A delicious 15 grams that was crafted specifically for strengthening and regenerating muscles.
- The special feature of the Vega (apart from it being vegan) is that they contain SaviSeeds. According to the official website, these are a “rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan and Omega 3s”.
- Available in two appetizing flavours: Chocolate SaviSeeds and Chocolate Coconut.
- Low in carbohydrate content, no sugar added and gluten free, Quest
come in chocolate chip cookie dough, double chocolate chunk, white chocolate raspberry, peanut butter supreme, lemon cream pie, peanut butter & jelly, banana nut muffin, strawberry cheesecake, mixed berry, coconut cashew, vanilla almond crunch, chocolate peanut butter, apple pie and cinnamon roll.
- They only utilize high quality and bio-available proteins.
- This product is a bit cheaper than the Vega bars, so it’s a good place to start if you want to save money.
I’d recommend that you give either of these brands a try. I’ve been impressed by what they have to offer. They both keep you feeling full and make for a convenient way to get vital vitamins and nutrients when I don’t have time to cook. Do you have any experience with any protein sticks for weight loss?
