Bars are your best bet for protein on the go: no messy powders to mix, cups to fumble with or questions about how much you’re getting. They come in every flavor imaginable, and the price is usually right. But there is one drawback. Next time you unwrap a store bought bar, take a look at the label. Chances are, you can’t pronounce all the ingredient names. And if you try to count them? It’s pretty likely you’ll reach 10, if not 15 or 20.

Q: I’m the “weird” healthy one of the family. How do I minimize imposing my dietary needs on family and friends during the holidays, especially as a guest in their house?
Brandon Marsh answers:
A: This is always a touchy subject. Discussing nutrition or diets is akin to talking politics or religion; everyone is passionate about their way of eating.
Since the holidays are commonly celebrated around a buffet of food, this time of year is particularly tricky for all of us “health nuts” trying not to offend our loved ones. But with this healthy holiday guest guide, you can have your quinoa stuffed squash and eat it, too!

There’s nothing like biting into a so-called “chocolate” protein bar only to discover it tastes like anything but chocolate. Because chocolate is – well, delicious. As someone who has tried many different types and flavors of protein products, I have a suggestion: Promax protein bars.
It’s sad but true: In our busy, everyday lives, meals sometimes get skipped. Ideally, you should be eating something every two and a half to three hours. But when there just isn’t time to prepare a healthy meal, protein bars are a good occasional substitute. Of course, they’re not meant to replace real meals; but eating a protein bar is definitely better then eating nothing at all.
Remember, when you skip meals, your metabolism slows down, causing your body to burn fewer calories and to store fat. You also miss out on important vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients your body needs to function properly.
With so many brands and types of protein bars available, how do you choose? Before purchasing a box of bars, be sure to read the label. Pay close attention to the protein count and sugar content. Think about your dietary needs first, then try different kinds to find a flavor you like. Read more →
