    Protein Bars...that bad?

    Are protein bars really all that useless? I eat a couple of them everyday, but only because I get them for free. (Several different brands / kinds)
    Should I just give them away?

    Give 'em away.. Theres usually a lot of trans fatty acids and processed sugar in them.

    All of the ones I eat say 0 Grams of Trans Fat and all have 3g's or less sugar. Still the same answer? I like free and they taste good. Give me the winds though.

    The "wind" you get from those are all the sugar alcohols, malitol, etc.......

    I hate that sh*t.......it's horrible for your system, I can only imagine what that stuff does to your insides.

    yea i started a thread on this a while back, then returned my sh*t to gnc with the $70 in boxes empty, and gave all the bars to my buddy. buy some jerky bro, its good protein thats portable with no laxatives. try eating a few nitro-tech bars, you feel like your lower intestine is coming out of your *ss when you fart

    on top of the fact that if you notice one of the ingredients is hydrolized gelatin.....this is counted towards protein eventhough it is bone marrow from cows and has zero nutritional value despite the fact that it has the same molecules as proteins.....like the two useless grams of protein found in sugar free jello.

    I have been eating Tri-O-Plex bars.

    32g Protein and it has whole grain rolled oats in it. Hydrolized Gelatin is not listed as an ingredient in this type.

    I have been away from the boards for awhile, protein bars suck huh?
