Supreme Bars and Other Supps


#1

I am pretty well dialed in when it comes to solid foods and what is good -vs- bad. These supps are still a little fuzzy for me. Looking for some nutrition experts to tell me how good these Supreme bars are/aren't and why. If they are shit, like most other bars, let me know what ingredients make them shit. I only use them in a pinch, few times a month maybe, so I don't pay much attention to all these funky looking ingredients. Anyway, nutritional below....

Obviously everyone will tell you're much better off munching on a cold chicken breast with broccoli and cashews, but in a pinch (and not too many if you're cutting), I don't see a prob. I have several boxes of different protein bars in my kitchen, and I always toss a few in my girl's bag before we go anywhere. When I'm lucky, I don't have to resort to eating one, when I'm not, and I need to eat 'something', it's better than a pizza parlor at 4am and nothing else is open :slight_smile:

as long as the macros are what you're looking for, i don't see a problem. even if you're scared of soy, all the soy ingredients are pretty far down the list.

As long as your calories and macros fit, I don't really see a problem. Just know that, that "net carb" business is complete trash and sugar alcohols not as low impact as you think (like 3 cals per gram rather than 4). That being said... Supreme Protein Bars are delicious.

But I'd also like to hear what more knowledgeable people have to say.

Cool, thanks.
