Choosing a Protein Bar That is Healthy
and Best for Your Goals

Choosing a high-quality protein bar is not as simple as going to the store and picking out anything that says ‘protein bar’ on the label. Many protein bars are hardly any better for you than a candy bar. Finding a good one is worth it, though, because there are times when you will need a health protein snack in a pinch that helps bring you to your goals.

Here are some pointers.

1. Your protein bar should have a good mix of nutrients, especially for the calories. Look for a bar that has less than 200 calories, at least 15 grams of protein, and at least 3 grams of fiber. If your bar has more protein but also more calories, you may need to eat just half a bar at a time if you are on a calorie-controlled diet, but the key is the ratio of protein grams to calories.

2. Your protein bar should contain high-quality protein. Many protein bars are made of lesser quality proteins such as gelatins, or are largely soy protein. Whey or casein are more useful to your body. But, since those ingredients cost more many companies don’t bother including the best proteins since the average customer isn’t aware that it matters.

3. Your protein bar should be as minimally processed as possible. In general, the shorter the ingredient list and the easier the ingredients are to pronounce, the more it consists of ‘whole food’ items and less of artificial chemicals.

With all of the above taken into consideration, I recommend Dr. Melina Bars to most of my clients. They also happen to taste great. Get Healthy Protein Bars Here.
