Energy Bars-A Weight-Loss Secret Weapon

Energy Bars-A Weight-Loss Secret Weapon
Energy Bars?A Weight-Loss Secret Weapon: Main Image
Decide whether your bar will be a snack or part of a meal

Whether part of a planned program or eaten on the fly, bars bridge the hunger gap and boost your energy. When you're working on your waistline, today's bars can support your weight-loss efforts, especially when fresh food and refrigeration aren't in easy reach. And when you're in a rush, munching on an energy bar is one of the best stop-gap measures for those sudden "I'm ravenous" moments. Downing a healthy bar can even prevent a "roadside attraction" binge of fries, shakes, or convenience-store goodies like high-calorie, high-fat chips and cookies. In other words, energy bars can be a helpful tool in your diet plan.

Put your hunger behind bars

First, you need to decide whether your bar will be a snack or part of a meal. "If it's a snack, the bars should have less than 180 calories," advises Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, the national media spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association in Chicago. "If it's a meal, the bar should be more than 200 calories and needs to be eaten with fruit and vegetables to satisfy you for four or more hours till you eat again."

In fact, substituting an energy bar-paired with an apple or veggie salad-for one meal each day can help you lose weight. "By adding fruits and vegetables, which are high in fiber and water, you'll feel more full," says Blatner. "This can help accelerate weight loss." If your goal is to drop a few pounds, Blatner says you need to read the nutrient label to make sure your meal-replacing bar contains:

  • at least 200 calories
  • 3 grams or less saturated fat
  • 3 grams or more fiber (to help you feel full)
  • at least 10 grams of protein (to help tide you over till your next meal)

Indulge in your favorite flavors

As a general rule, look for bars with the least sugar and the most fiber (in other words, "good carbs") or protein (whatever your preference) to avoid the crash that comes from eating bars that are more like candy disguised in "natural" packaging.

"After you've read the label, it all boils down to personal preference," says Blatner. Love dried berries? Go for a fruity bar. Granola, nut, or yogurt fan? Store shelves are stocked with bars for every discriminating taste. You can take your pick from grain- or yogurt-based, to nut- or fruit-dense bars.

Simply scan the ingredient list for the foods or flavors you fancy and cross-check it with the label's nutrition facts to ensure it fits with your diet goals.

Pick the best bar for the job

As the seemingly endless choices will attest, you can find a bar to fit your evolving healthy lifestyle needs. Lifting weights? Try a high-protein bar favored by weight-trainers to help repair muscle. Love jogging, hiking, and biking? Look for high-carb bars preferred by the distance runners who crave instant energy.

If you're interested in eating fewer preservatives and getting the maximum nutrients from the foods you eat, you might like a raw energy bar. The tastes may vary widely but they are typically packed with robust ingredients such as nuts, nectar, berries, and ginger.

Enjoy!
Nancy Gottesman, a nutrition writer and mother in southern California, admits to needing way more energy than these bars can provide!

        I began taking these with the 2-Day Cleanse. I warmed it up and it tasted a lot better than I expected. The texture is really chewy but it didn't taste bad at all. It held me over until lunch time, which was surprising!

            They were on sale and I remember thinking I wish I could try this before I buy an entire box of them. The texture is like plaster. Then it tastes like medicine. 170 calories for something that tastes like medicine with chocolate on top.

            These bars are super sweet; I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in May, and have since lost 120 pounds. My taste buds have changed big time, and now sweets are really heightened. I just got these yesterday and really like them. The bar was dense and kept me full for several hours. It's very sweet though - VERY sweet. The only thing I found myself wishing for was a bit more oatmeal.

                    Decided to give these a try - glad I did. Great taste, filling for a small bar, plenty of fiber and protein. Excellent to have for breakfast or as a mid day snack - or even to satisfy a craving in evening. Can't go wrong with these.

                        I eat these everyday on my way to work since I really don't have any time to eat breakfast. At first I wasn't sure about the size of these breakfast squares because they are smaller than I thought they would be but suprisingly they keep me full all day until I am able to eat lunch. I also wasn't too sure about the taste of them at first but I am used to them now, and the fact that they have chocolate in them is a plus.
