Top 6 Low-Carb Protein Bars

I am a big fan of finding bars that taste good, have low calories, are high in fiber and minimal on the carb side.

Meal Replacements bars are great when you are on the go and need to find a supplement to your nurtition when you don’t have time to prepare meals. Bars have come a long way and actually taste like candy bars these days.  The key thing to look for is total calories, saturated fat, sugars and protein. If the bar has additional fiber and small doses of sugar alcohols, then that makes the bar even better!
Whenever I go to the drugstore, I always search for these top 6 delicious protein bars:

1. Myoplex Carbsense:  I love their Apple Cinnamon Flavor, Peanut Butter and Strawberry.

2. Atkins Low Carb Bar. Personal favorites is almond brownie and smores.

3. Snickers Marathon Low Carb Bar. At only 170 calories a bar with 7 grams of Fiber, I was hooked on the peanut butter flavor!

4. Think Thin: Love, Love, Love the chunky peanut butter on this one!

5. Detour Bars: I loved these when they came out: Now I stick to the minature versions.

6. Luna Bars: I eat this when I’m limited in choices and at a Health food store – I love the lime and cafe latte flavors.

    A nourishing food bar that I like and feel very comfortable with (no candy guilt) is the line by Odwalla, which includes carrot/raisin bars, strawberry/pomegranate, various ones with chocolate, and many others.

    The carrot/raisin bar that I have in hand has 220 calories, 4 grams of fat (no trans fat), zero cholesteral, 4g fibre, 4g protein; vitamins, minerals; contains 34% organic ingredients; only ingredients that are not produced using biotechnology; no refined sugars. The list of ingredients sounds like a fresh fruit stand rather than a list of chemicals. I think I paid a dollar for this bar.

    And don’t forget the Quest Protein Bars. They are the best bars I’ve found.

    They have only 4g of carbs that don’t come from fiber and no sugar alcohols or glycerin.

    They are only available online so just do a search for Quest Protein Bars.

    I always try to use real food but when it’s impossible I like to keep them in my car and in my desk at work.

    i second the comment regarding the quest bar. my first bite, all i thought was, WTF, how are these one of the best tasting Protein bars? (the day prior i had been eating full carb treats so my taste buds were not “diet ready”) but after being on a low carb diet for 3 days, i tried the bar again, and its like heaven, i dont understand why i didnt like it before, it must have something to do with the change in diet i reckon, but now i keep the pantry stocked. I brought heaps in strawberry cheesecake flavour, i just wish they made a caramel fudge flavour!!
