Protein Bars are a great way to help you to control your macro nutrient balance day to day while on the go!
There are many kinds of protein bars, some for gaining weight, some for helping you to lose it and others for energy. All of which can be beneficial to you depending on your goals.
Studies have shown that high protein meals can keep hunger satisfied for longer compared to carbohydrate and fat rich meals with the same calorific quantity. Therefore, consuming a bar which contains at least 20g of protein will be most effective at satisfying hunger and preventing snacking throughout the morning. This is great for those who are trying to reduce or control their calorie intake.
When picking your protein bar, it is important to consider what nutrients it contains. Many protein bars contain lots of sugar and little nutritional value, therefore analysing the protein and sugar levels is key.
