are these a good low carb bar? I was eating the Pria low carb but my nutrioist said they were too high in sugar. But these bars taste darn good

Og, you just looking for a high protein, low carb, low fat bar?
What do you consider low carb for a bar? like what kinda ratio to protein?

You could make your own bars using protein powders. I've made brownies a few times with mine! Granted you have to use a sweetned/chocolate flavored protein powder.

Most bars are designed as "energy/pick-me-up" typa bars, so they typically contain a good portion of carbs, like 2:1 (carbs:protein)

I've only tried 3-5 different bars in my life and it seems like these companies are in a contest to fit the most protein/carbs into a bar at the sacrifice of consistency/flavor. The bars I've had have been close to a Abba Zabba http://www.candyshoppe.ca/shop/shopimages/abbazabbabar.jpg
or Mary Jane in hardness and sit in my stomach like a rock which I assume takes eons to digest, thus defeating the point in marketing them as "quick energy" bars
