What’s the best protein bar to eat when you’re trying to lose weight? Well, the best way to lose weight is by eating a low carbohydrate diet, and if you go on that premise, you really need to be careful about which protein bar you choose when you’re trying to lose weight.

The most important thing is like anything else, to read the labels. For instance, the Zone bar, while a very good bar for some things if you’re trying to lose weight, has 23 grams of carbos and 14 grams of proteins. It contains nice protein, but you want to try to keep your carbos down 10 to 12 carbos and at least 10 grams of protein.

The Myoplex bar has 36 grams of carbs and 30 grams of protein, so you’re going to be burning carbs instead of fat if you eat this bar.

The Myoplex carb control bar has 27 grams of carbohydrates, and if you’re trying to keep your carbohydrate intake to 50 to 60 grams a day, when you’re trying to lose weight, you’ve got more than half, almost half of your protein grams there. Now, it contains 25 grams of protein but way too many carbs.

The Power bar, is supposed to be for energy. Once again, because it’s supposedly for energy, it has 44 grams of carbohydrates. So you’re burning carbs instead of fat, you’re not going to lose body weight.

The Cliff bar is another bar 43 grams of carbohydrate, almost an entire day’s allotment of carbohydrates if you’re trying to lose weight.

Finally, the Quest bar, which advertises 46 grams of non-fiber carbohydrates, so this is why you really need to read the label. In reality, it has 24 grams of carbos. It doesn’t matter where your carbs come from, they break down into blood sugar, they’re used for energy, they elevate blood sugar level. You burn carbs instead of fat, so make sure you read the labels.

What are the two best bars that you should eat when you’re trying to lose weight? Well, the first bar is the Medifast Crunch bar, and it has 12 to 13 grams of carbohydrates.

That’s not it. You have to go online to get this bar, or you have to get it through Medifast. There’re 11 grams of protein, so it’s got at least 10 grams of protein, and it’s got 10 to 12 grams of carbohydrates.

You have to be careful because there are Medifast quote maintenance bars which have as much as 22 grams of carbs, and they say that it’s maintenance so you can eat more carbs. If you’re trying to control your blood sugar level, trying to control your energy, and trying to burn body fat instead of carbohydrates, you want to keep it to 10 to 12.

The Power Crunch bar is the best bar to eat. The Power Crunch bar has 10 grams of protein– 13 grams of protein and only 10 grams of carbohydrates.
Try to find a bar that has between 10 and 12 grams of carbohydrates no more and at least 10 grams of protein. Also, make sure that you’re eating within 50 to 60 grams. It is a general rule that varies depending on the individual and the activity. When you’re trying to lose weight, the good rule of thumb is 50 to 60 grams of carbohydrates a day.
