Why would anyone who is serious about gym ever eat a protein bar? … Why would anyone who is serious about gym ever eat a protein bar? Seriously? Just eat a hand full of peanuts and you will get 100% more protein than these sugar fillers.



Handful of nuts - around 5-6 grams of protein
One of these bars- 20g protein......

The carbs would help with the workout, if had before. Is there some "proper way" to gym, that doesn't involve protein bars or something? They're not the best source of course but come on...

Agreed mate. I only find these useful on hikes etc, a 65p tub of cottage cheese from Tesco or a fat free greek yoghurt with whey mixed in destroys these things.

I know what your saying but some people find it hard to find a protein source, such as they might be allergic to nuts or eggs or might generally not like them so this might be easier for people, but yea there not something I would use.
I wouldn't say it's a bargain. Cheaper than retail but by no means a bargain.

A note: These aren't suitable for vegetarians
This may be good for fussy people but protein powder from the likes of myprotein is way cheaper if you aren't getting enough protein from your diet.
I stay away from these personlly, as I dont want to get "to big muscles"
I got the Millionaire Shortbread flavour for £0.00...
Good deal. No way are they best on the market though. Grenade carb killas and prosupps mybars are much nicer.

To all those people saying 'whats the point' or 'just eat peanuts' - get a clue. Have a look how much fat/calories youd get from eating 20g protein from peanuts.

Guessing you got the bodypower supps bundle that was on here a few weeks ago? Came with a £10 voucher towards diet and nutrition.

Because it will f up your macros. If you are serious about gym and eat just peanuts for protein, then you're a fatty that's serious about gym - not all of us want to be powerlifters.
Weird question guys.....

I've recently inherited Gout from my Dad, lovely fella that he is. Pain I cannot describe.

I'm not supposed to have anything with Uric acid in it, anyone know if these would be gout friendly?!

A little off-topic: I have Gout too, at a young age (Non-inherent unfortunately too). It use to be really bad where I would feel pain for a month, with attacks occurring every week or so - it's horrible.
That was a year ago and now I haven't had an attack since December. What helped me was eating less meat (From twice a day to 2-3 times a week) and having OJ everyday (Not the concentrated stuff).

Regarding this product, I personally prefer eating proper food but I don't believe there's any links between protein shakes and Gout (unlike other high protein foods). I think you should be fine but double check that.

Have gout too at the young age of 30! Going to try OJ, I do eat meat quite a bit - chicken mostly.

At the time I didn't eat any red meat, just chicken too but it felt like cutting down helped a lot, even though it's theoretically OK to eat it. I went full vegetarian for a couple of months to control it and later started to reintroduce chicken into my diet only 2-3 times a week. I've had it since my mid-20s.
If you are addicted to peanuts, TKMaxx usually has tubs of defatted peanut powder (40% protein, 12% fat). Just add a bit of water to make a lower calorie peanut butter without messing up your macros.

These Promax bars usually have refined sugar in and aren't the best for keeping sugar cravings at bay.

Ok so 4 handful of peanuts. = 1 bar
Mind you the chewing needed on this bar will be about 200 calories of work
Come on which would you rather eat?
Contains Isomalt and Sucralose - if you're not bothered by that sort of thing.

Sorry to deviate from the thread info! haha

First bout was about three weeks ago, second one this very morning, but I do try and get to the gym a bit so with reduced chicken intake I was looking for another source of protein, and thought these could replace any afternoon snacks or whatever.

Massive learning curve for me, never restricted myself in anyway diet or drink wise, really frustrating.
Sometimes after a very intense workout you need to reward yourself. A lot of working out & keeping up a routine is psychological. A hand full of peanuts won't quite cut it. This has a good mix of protein & carbs for post workout. Admittedly some crap too but a bit or reward helps me mentally grind through the final & hardest reps.

utterly clueless. The fitness industry is the biggest industry of lies when it comes to supplements. Suppose you believe protein shakes give you muscles also...... the comments in this post are laughable . Train like an athlete and you will look like one no shortcuts or bad diet. Protein bars are junk and lazy excuses .
As I understand it, you should never over-indulge in any food supplement, be it protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, whatever. Your nutritional needs are usually easily met by an average healthy diet. If you persistently take too much of any nutrient, you risk long term disease, as you push your body's waste management into overdrive, getting rid of excess stuff that the body can't use.
Many food supplements are simply a marketing exercise, to sell us consumer sheep, high priced stuff we don't need.

Am interested as I just started back up at the gym recently and have to hold me nose and swallow the protein shakes... however, the reviews of this product on Amazon are so retarded that I'm wondering if taking these bars causes some kind of degredation of the brain?

yeah right... 6 eggs = 89p = 42g of protein and by the way you dont need protein supplements to build muscle. a standard size chicken breast is 60g... but im guessing you have read an article on a bodybuilding site somewhere without confirming the source

bravo.... 1 protein bar = 200 calories... and costs 89p
1 chocolate strip (from a chocolate block) 150kcal, dark chocolate even better.... cost £1

Well you carry on eating your dark chocolate and ill stick to a protein bar every now and then. Dark chocolate isn't even good for you, only in like small quantity like 2 squares.

Salad , fruit and vegetables are more filling,

2 squares are literally a 2/3 of a chocolate strip .
In what way do you define something as being healthy? 200kcal in a protein bar Vs 150 in a chocolate bar. And what's the issue with having a chocolate bar every now and again?

Btw
Excess calories are converted and stored as fat .... The 50kcal difference is around ... 5g of fat
All you idiots crying over my comment. I was literally making the point that there isn't 100% more protein in a handful of peanuts. Calm down, I understand you's are all professional nutritionalists!
