High Protein Bars

High protein bars can be confusing for those who are new to weight training or living an active lifestyle which involves following a restrictive diet in order to achieve success. Ads sometimes suggest nutritional bars are an alternative way to lose weight without having to diet or workout.  These glorified ads can actually make you think that these types of results are actually possible.

Protein bars can be used as part of your diet as you work towards reaching your goals whether you’re trying to lose weight or add muscle mass. Here are three different ways that high protein bars can be used:


  • Weight Loss –Use bars with 15 to 20 grams of protein which are low in carbohydrates with a small amount of fat and contain a good source of fiber. These types of bars will keep you full and stop you from additional snacking. You should only have one or two of these bars a day.
  • Weight Gain – These bars will be higher in calories and carbohydrates but still low in sugar and fats. This type of bar could have as much as 400 calories. You should also follow a good exercise program so your body can use the high protein to feed your muscles and help you recover after working out.

Meal Replacement – Meal Replacement Bars are also high in protein, carbs, fiber and nutrients. You’ll feel like you just ate a small meal and the fiber will keep you feeling fulfilled. Many people


Low Carb Weight Loss Plan Snacks

Low carb, high protein diets have proven to be a safe and effective way to lose weight and keep it off.   All the while, you continue to see those gimmick, fast weight loss programs and diet pills advertised all over with claims to lose weight while you sleep or lose all of your belly fat by taking this product.



Any extreme diet plan that practically eliminates any major nutrients, whether it’s protein, fat, or carbohydrates, is not the best plan to follow. Studies have shown that following a diet where you eat six times a day, contains choices from all food groups, and is low in carbs and high in protein will give you long lasting results. This kind of diet plan will also help you to regulate blood sugar levels, prevent cravings and keep you satisfied and full.

It’s time to get away from sugars, junk and processed foods. Changing long time eating habits can be a challenge with fast foods, sugary drinks and temptation all around us. Over time, eating healthy, whole grain, fresh foods and adding some exercise will make you feel so much better then you ever have.  You’ll be able to think clearer, have much more energy and more importantly you’ll feel good about yourself.

The problem is that you don’t keep the weight off very long after you go on these types of weight loss plans.

In some cases you may find that working out with a training partner will help to encourage you while you’re training.

Importance of Eating a Healthy Diet


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Eating a healthy diet is important for so many reasons. First and foremost is to prevent or regulate health issues such as diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure. The second is eating a well balanced diet will make you feel better and more energetic, not bloated and sluggish.

You’ll want to be sure you eat a balanced diet combining all food groups – proteins, whole grains, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit and dairy. Be sure to add variety to your diet. Explore your options and try new things. Each food group provides different vitamins and nutrients so to ensure that you’re getting what your body needs, keep things well rounded.

Cut back on fats, salt and sugar. Stay away from processed foods. Find healthy alternatives – wheat or whole grain bread instead of white bread, brown rice in place of white rice. Did you know Salmon is a great source of Omega-3 fish oil. Ground Flax Seed has the essential fatty acids – Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. Add Avocado to your sandwich or salad. One half of a medium Avocado is approximately 120 calories and it’s high in healthy fats. Eat dark green vegetables such as kale and spinach. A good approach to getting 3 cups of vegetables daily is to have once cup at lunch time and two cups with dinner.

Drink 8 glasses of water every day to keep your body hydrated. It will help you stay full, it’s good for your kidneys and for healthier looking skin.

Following the Balanced Protein Diet will help you learn good eating habits. You’ll have three regular meals and three snacks daily. Eating small meals through-out the day helps to increase your metabolism which will help you to burn body fat. The weight loss program helps you plan portion sizes and helps add add variety to your meals. The Balanced Protein Diet Plan is a high protein, low carbohydrate diet with individual plans for women and men.
