Protein Bars - Stay Away?
I am currently bulking and eat clean. However, I am a medical student, so sometimes I can cannot eat the meals I prepare for the day (no access to microwave, no time, etc.) Sometimes, I substitute one of my meals for a Lean Body Bar and an apple. How often is too much for doing this if I don't want to put on extra bodyfat?

If you are bulking in the traditional sense, I don't see any harm in it. Bodyfat accrued during your bulking session will be from all of your food intake, not just the bars. I'd be more weary of the bars NOT having what they say they have (protein wise usually) and thus having them not support your current goals.

-i'm in the same situatioin, so i usually carry 2 protein bars with while in school or clinicals. i figure, the bars are at least better than missing a meal all together- lesser of two evils i guess...

But will they make you fat if you are eating clean and bulking, no, not unless you use them like 2-3 meals every day.
