There are about a million meal replacement / energy bars out there on the market right now, and today while I was at Sunflower Market I found myself comparing nutritional information for a lot of them. I have an upset stomach today (ugg cause I work at 5) and Im so not hungry! It was noon before I realized I had put anything in my stomach besides iced tea, and the big rule in weight loss is that YOU HAVE TO EAT TO LOSE! So yeah skipping breakfast is a big no no, so I figured I might try one of these bars to fill my calorie and nutritional void. I had heard some bloggers out there talking about Lara Bars and when I was in Washington I saw Kelli eating a Soy Joy bar, the one I ended up picking up was the Kashi Go Lean Chewy Bars. I usually avoid these because I rarely find them filling, and they have a fair amount of calories and fat to eat them as a little snack.
AND SO WE COMPARE:
Luna Bars: WW POINTS – 3
LARA Bars: WW POINTS -4
Fiber 1 Bars: WW POINTS -2
Kashi Go Lean Bars: WW POINTS-6
Soy Joy Bars: WW POINTS – 2
As you can see I picked the highest points! Ha! Which is ok because I needed to get some calories in, and its now almost 2 and I still haven’t eaten anything else. But its good to know where I should lean when I want one of these. Of course not all of them are vegan or chemical free so read your ingredients too people! Ok I’m off to take a shower before Mr. Gaunt and I hit run some errands before I work. Oh and one more exciting thing is that I now where a comfortable size LARGE, no more XL or XXL! YAY FOR ME!
