You’re probably wondering, (well you are). Which protein bar is the best. Fortunately for you, protein bars suit different needs. Just like anything these bars are customizable to the person or the individual’s goals. With so many brands out there it’s almost impossible to narrow them down to the best. BUT, don’t you worry I did the hard work for you! It took years as a consumer to realize which brands were actually worth your time and money. You worked hard for that money so why waste it on something that is not benefitting you or your wallet.
I know you’re probably saying what if I am a vegan, vegetarian? Don’t worry I will have that covered for you in another article. BUT for now here are the TOP Protein Bars for any athlete or fitness enthusiast.
Disclaimer: These are in no particular order.
Top Protein Bars
These bars HAVE CARBS and are great for recovery. So sit back relax and salivate over the next few paragraphs because these bars you need in your life. I personally have tried every single one of these bars so I can tell you from experience they are one of a kind.
If you have followed me for some time then you know this brand is one of my all-time faves. I can’t get enough of this brand, talk about quality. I have everything from their protein shakes to their vitamins to of course their protein bar.
Why I Like this Brand – QUALITY, their ingredients are top-notch, and their flavor is amazing. Enough said! Pick yourself one or a box.
If your stomach is sensitive like mine you will LOVE these bars. Many bars on the market leave you with an unpleasant feeling in your stomach. This means one thing, it’s wreaking havoc on your gut. Artificial sweeteners are known to cause gas and upset your stomach so proceed with caution. On a brighter note, they have many awesome flavors! It’s going to be hard to just choose one.
Why I Like this Brand – High in Protein, Low in Sugar. When you are trying to stay lean, your protein to energy ratio is very important. So keep these in mind…ALWAYS.
I know, I know. This brand! Well, I can’t get enough of them honestly. If you want to run like a well-built machine you have to make sure you are fueling it well. Their whole CLEAN line is way ahead of its time. Consume pre, intra, or post-workout. That extra glucose will get your muscles pumping.
Why I Like this Brand – Do I have to say it again? Besides the quality, they are just overall a power supplement that I personally can’t live without. Let’s be real, we cant consume chicken and rice all the time…So having one of these babies helps!
I am not going to lie, I was very skeptical when these bars first came out. I was convinced they were just another whole foods bar gimmick. But I can honestly say I was wrong. They are super tasty as well! Not as high in protein as I would like but you can fix that quickly with a scoop of whey or any protein powder you desire.
Why I Like this Brand – The taste is what really gets me with these! I LOVE sweet! Oh, you can also count the ingredient on one hand. SCORE!
These are a great post-workout if you are looking for something quick and easy, again not the highest In protein but a sufficient amount of carbs to replenish the body. As always you can add a scoop of protein or two to cover your protein needs,
Why I Like this Brand – Cliff has been around for years and is a trustworthy company, great ingredients, and awesome tasting! Cliff also has an amazing list of products and flavors, run and get these now!
I can’t stress enough that having a sound diet should be your number one priority. Bars are such an awesome supplement to have but you want to make sure the majority of your diet is whole foods. REMEMBER focus on protein then use carbs and fats as needed.
With that said we also have to be realistic, some days we just do not want to eat tons of chicken and beef (in my opinion at least). Experiment with your diet and you feel like bars are good for you and your current lifestyle I see no reason why you cannot enjoy a protein bar from time to time or even every day.
