Yeah I wouldn't bother with the bars.. unless you can find a load of them dirt cheap, they're a rip off.

You'd be better off with any of those sources which getfit gave you.

Just make your own bars....Hanb has a good recipe for them and it will be dirt cheap compared to the store bought ones + they will be extra yummy and have waaaaay more protein.

I'm with L4L - alter the recipe to your liking. I find that HahnB's are great, but WAYYYYY too peanut-buttery for my taste.

Lots of options here... But Gelatin (Pudding and Gello) are high in protein... Of course, it isn't a complete protein but that doesn't matter much unless that is your only source.

Most of all, gelatin products are very low calorie and have good hydration in them. For instance, two cups of sugar free pudding is only 360 calories and boy does it sure hit the spot. Actually, I only have 1 cup and it fills the bowl completely... So, 160 calories is a desert that I can have each and every day after my meal without having to cut anything out.

Protein Bars... I made them, but they seem to be high calorie for the ammount that they fill you. I'd personally avoid them unless you are bulking or can just say "no" after like, one small 3 X 3 peice. They remind me of cookies/bars so much that I doubt I could have just "one".

Shakes are typically pretty good at least in my case. It doesn't have to be high calorie. You can use 1 cup skim milk, 1 scoup of chocolate whey protein and 1/2 banana for a good 12 ounce shake. Or you can throw in 1/2 cup of ice cream, 1/2 banana, 1 cup of milk and 1 scoup of whey and 2 servings of sugar free hershey' syrup for a really good tasting malt of around 16oz and under 500 calories.

You have to be creative, willing to eat eat sugar free things with artificial sweeteners, but you can create some great tasting low calorie protein filled snacks.
