    Optimum Nutrition Opti-Pro Meal Bar Peanut Butter

    If you haven't tried it, you've been missing out on the best tasting protein bar ever. Not the best nutritional facts, but you can't beat the taste.

    Damn it! Everyone's voting for "other" I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE PUT OPTIMUM. They are good, but for post workout, I heard they are sugar bars, like Promax. I go for nutrition, and then taste, but Designer's entire line is to DIE for....mmmmm. Also Pure Protein Blueberry, just bought two boxes of that, and one Smores box. . I'm stocked!

    From a carb/protein standpoint Optimum makes the Opti-Pro meal bar which is fabulous. Try it after a workout or for a snack.

    Wish i had known that...I would have sent you my two boxes of PP Blueberry. That stuff is N A S T Y. I had a sample at some show a few months ago and i thought it tasted great so i got some. I swear they must have had some real chocolate in it, it was that good...that or I was so hungry at the time i could've eaten a skunk and it would have tasted good.

    The nice thing about the opti-pro meal bars are that they also have a couple digestive enzymes added so hell I've eaten 3 after a workout. And you can't beat the price.

    Dumbells 101,

    Doesnt all the sugar in those Optipromeal bars concearn you?

    Only time I ever consider the bars like that (Promax, OptiProMeal, MetRx food bar, Mesotech, etc) would be immediately post workout instead of my usual shake, or when on a cheating binge. Otherwise I just dont think with all of the poor high GI carbs and sugar they have any place in the BB diet.

    I will admit they are DAMN good though

    Improving

    PS - If I had to pick a single best brand and flavor of nutritionally decent protein bar it would have to be Designer Lemon Crunches.

    No I don't worry about sugar post workout, and I too only eat them at that time. However, my day starts ab 4:00 am and typically ends at 9:30-10:00 pm. I'm burning a ton of calories a day, once measured at almost 6000. If I use a thermogenic my weight drops dramatically. I don't advise the bars at any othe time unless I have a client whose bodyfat is low and needs a quick fix.

    Protien Bars

    I have tried protien bars in the past however I have found that most contain way to much sugar. So I stuck to my isopure. I think that I am the only person at my gym that is always walking around with a protien shake in thier hands all the time.

    I hear ya Tobey, clients ask me every day if all I do is supplement. They don't see the oatmeal early or the chicken or the rest, only when I'm in between meals.

    Lightbulb protein bars

    I used to make my own (talk about getting hassled at work)- they looked like particle board but didn't taste nearly as good as particle board. But, boy were they healthy and cheap! Recipe on request (ha, ha, ha).
    Nowdays, I like the Pure Protein ones- the lemon chiffon is good as is the S'Mores. But the be-all of protein bars for taste alone is the new Balance Gold bar- tastes like a Snickers but with 15 grams of protein and only about 200 calories. Makes for a great snack when you're feeling decadent.

    Designer CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO..is the SHIZ.
    All designers are good actually
    I like SOLID PRO. cookie dough and smores.
    the brownie promax bar is so good but loaded with sugar, but if you feel like cheatin it's better than snickers.

    Speaking of Snickers...Did you know that a Snickers is actually an acceptable choice if you are in a pinch and need something quick that will keep your blood sugar stable! Yep though I don't recommend it often, in a pinch it has a glycemic rating (how quickly it is absorbed into the blood stream) of 41, which is acceptable. Yes it does have 30 grams of sugar and 14 grams of fat but 9 of them are unsaurated healthy from the peanuts, and it does provide 4 grams of protein.

    My favorite is to eat a MetRx and a Pure Protein bar together. Choc MetRx and Strawberry Shortcake PP. I eat bars like they are going out of style (and no I don't worry about the sugar....). I shoot for minimum 6000 cals a day so I don't think the couple extra grams of sugar are gonna hurt me..... LOL Gear Does a Body GOOD!!!!!

    I think the pure protein bars taste the best, but IMO I think that all taste like sh*t. After eating 1/2 - 3/4 of the bar, the aftertaste kills me.

    Speaking of snickers, have u guys tried snickers ice cream?? They have frozen snickers ice cream bars and regular ice cream... I think the regular ice cream is the bomb. The ice cream bars aren't that bad either. Not exactly something for the fitness category, but I believe you can cheat every now and then, just don't make it a habit.
