    Yeah man, just bring some almonds/cashews/pistachios/walnuts with you to work and have some crystal light or even a diet soda with it. Much better choice then a breakfast/cereal bar.

    Jay Cutler eats Oat Bars in his video. He says they have 80g of CHO per bar. I have no idea the nutritional value and I do not know if you are cutting or bulking which will affect your decision.

    The suggestion for Almonds is a good one. You get a little protein, some healthy fats, and a little fiber. Make sure you get the plain unsalted, unsweetened ones. A good work snack I like is almonds and a protein shake (2.5 scoops Allthewhey chocolate). If you want something with carbs oatmeal with cinnamon and vanilla protein with a little artificial sweetener is a quick healthy snack. Mark

    Cutting and cereal bars cannot even be mentioned in the same context.
