I just started a new diet...it is basically a high protien cutting diet that I found on this forum last week and slightly modified. But 2 of the meals call for MRPs. I would rather get some real food, but in the event that good real food is unavailable in the dorm cafeteria, I want to fill that void with a protien bar. I have never really used protien bars or anything so I don't know jack **** about them. My friend gave me 4 to get me started, they have a little higher fat content than I want but for now they will do. 1 was a low carb lean body, 1 was a no sugar ProtienPlus PowerBar, and 2 Atkins Advantage bars. I have eaten the lean body, and it tasted like complete **** so I won't be buying those when the time comes. Basically I want to know what the best high protien, low fat, low carb bars are for cutting.

summary : I want to know what the best high protien, low fat, low carb bars are for cutting.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Most all protein bars are going to have about 7-9g of fat (larger sizes 2.8-3.1oz. size). The most popular are probably the Detour Bar by Next Proteins. I also like the Nitro-Tech bars as well. Both of these bars have approx 290 cals, 8-9g fat, and approx 35g of protein.

You will be hard pressed to find a protein bar that has a low sugar content and low fat content. The fat in those bars is not going to hurt you. It is more about overall calories rather than specific macronutrients.

And don't forget, fat is used as energy when working out (or doing anything else, for that matter).

O.K, let me rephrase that. Fat is used as energy when your glycogen is depleted during excercise. Correct me if I'm wrong.
