Maybe you’ve noticed our world’s obsession with weight. Hey, I think this can be a good thing, but is sadly a bad thing for some. Folks who get too obsessed and develop eating disorders certainly need some guidance. As for the rest of us who just want to stay fit and look great, that’s a different story. But, what are ways to stay trim and keep those fatty love handles away? Obviously regular exercise is imperative. Every human being on this planet needs to follow some sort of fitness regime, if they plan to stay strong and function properly as they age. And let’s not forget about what we consume. Currently the focus is on carbs. Or should I say lack there of? The truth is people are striving to avoid heavy carbohydrates. We know that bad carbs lead to weight gain. Maybe your solution is a low carb bar. There are definitely many to choose from.
Please tell me you’ve seen at least a few of the countless nutritional supplements on the market today. Personally I can’t keep up with every protein shake and low carb bar in town. There are just too many to sort through. Having said that, I have tried my share. What I’ve noticed is that most supplement bars focus on low carbohydrates and high levels of protein. As I’m sure you already know, protein is essential for muscle growth, repair, strong immune systems, as well as organ health. Our body probably needs good protein more than anything else. Okay, maybe except for water. Anyway, this is what makes the high protein low carb bar such a craze. Now, I think everyone should be aware that there is a catch. While many “low carb bars” may advertise low carbohydrates, let’s not disregard the sugar content. Sugar is a huge deal. It triggers your body to produce insulin, hence causing it to store fat. You DON’T want that. So the next time you’re seeking a “nutritional bar,” be sure to check the nutrition chart on the back. If it reads 20 grams of sugar, it’s not so healthy.
There are good low carb bars on the market if you really look. These make great meal replacements or energy-boosting snacks when you’re on the go. In reality you can lose major weight if you cut back on unhealthy carbs such as bread, pasta, and processed snack foods.
