grow bars...

these things are pretty damn good. i was at the health food store today after speedskating because i needed to get some quick protein for after the workout and i saw some lemon flavored grow bars and i thought i’d try one. i was impressed. i’d be more impressed however, if they upped the amount of protein per bar to 50 grams. that would be sexalicious.

50g a bar? I dunno. Your body is only capable of absorbing 20-30g at a time.

I’d rather see them be a little cheaper. I do love them though. Lemon is the flavour too!

Hey raoulsam, how about sharing the study with all of us that said 20-30g is all that our bodies can absorb? I’m sure that everyone would LOVE to give it a very thorough read-through.

You can absorb far more than 20-30 grams of protein at a time.

Having said that, I’m quite sure we wouldn’t like the taste or the pricing of the bars if there were 50 grams of protein in each.

I sure wish they’d make MAG-10 only $1. That would be awesome!!

I have the article you’re looking for, actually.

It’s right here in my pants.

See?

Sweet God, Ike…

It IS only 20g.

No wonder my girlfriend can’t swallow all of the 50g+ wonder I’ve got.

i’d be more impressed however, if they upped the amount of protein per bar to 50 grams.

  • And I’M sure we’d be pretty UNimpressed with the resulting taste-


    “…More chalk anyone?!” :slight_smile: SRS
