I am interested in purchasing some meal replacement bars for breakfast and lunch and wanted some recommendations. I had 2 questions...can this be an ideal solution for a 23 year old male weighing 250lbs (want to get down to 220)? Also, can this be a healthy alternative to eating an actual meal? I was looking into powerbars. I work out 3 times a week, mainly lifting weights.


Thanks

Loaded with carbs and sugar normally. If you want to lose weight, then just read Builts' cutting guide posted at the top, and follow that. A few scoops of protein/fish oil is a far better meal replacement then a bar.

I use to eat MRP's and bars for 2-3 meals throughout the day. I found them real easy to get some cals when I'm walking from class to class. What I have found is a sandwhich is just as easy to eat from class to class, and it has exactly what I need. I had a hard time finding a good bar that had the macros that I wanted and still tasted good.

Sure there fine, but I like real food.

I guess I am just looking for something fast and easy.

Can someone point me to the Built Cutting Article. I can't seem to find it.

Thanks

Doesn't get any faster then a sandwhich, or protein in a shaker.

So would you recommend having a protein shake as a meal replacement?

how about it as a meal, not as MRP
