The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Homemade Tri-O-Plex style bars

    If you have a food processor, which i have recently purchased, here it is, perfect

    I solved the macro problem by making only one or two at a time heres the recipe for 2

    1. Dry ingredients:
    - 40 grams Fiber One Cereal
    - 25 grams Total Protein Cereal (sub in 25 more fiber one, or oats here if you dont have it, but protein will change)
    - 30 grams Oats
    - 2 scoops ON %100 Whey chocolate flavor, 60 grams

    2. Wet:
    - 1tbsp + 1tsp PB
    - 1tbsp water
    - 2 tbsp Davinci SF Pancake syrup
    - Davinci SF Banana or butterscotch, whatever flavor you like, i bet caramel would be good too, or cookie dough.

    dump all the dry ingredients in first in processor, pour on the pb on top, mix in processor, it will still be too dry,
    add in 1 tbsp water and some flavored davinci, mix again, getting better
    then add in the pancake syrup, 1 tbsp at a time till it comes out like a really thick cookie batter.

    Dump it out onto a plate and form two equal bars, these are great, they weigh in around 4 oz each and look just like tri-o-plex bars, taste just as good if not better.

    Heres the numbers for my version, you can work out subs on your own.
    cals 311 34g Carbs 35g Protein 9.4g Fat and almost 14g Fiber.

    ENJOY!!!!!!

    cant stress the processor enough, it makes a big difference, the bars come out very nice compared to regular mixing, im sure you can sub in oats for the cereals too, but youll get more carbs and less protein per bar.

    Here is the finished product:

    as you can see it doesnt even sag when i hold it on one end, these are really dense bars, 115g, the photo with the dollar is so you can see how big they are.

    one more thing, maybe you guys should use vanilla or another kind of powder, so the bars dont get that color ( kinda looks like ... well you know )

    Edit: But before you buy one, compare them on the net first. Some are ALOT better than other's.

    Sounds tasty. I am always looking for an alternative to the crappy overprocessed protein bars that most companies sell.

    The recipe sounds great, but I gotta say, it looks like it will look the same coming out as it does going in.

    you may have a problem mixing well with a blender, it doesnt really get the stuff off the bottom, but try it, if worse comes to worse you dump it in a bowl and get a wooden spoon, good arm workout i guess, just add the wet stuff in little by little so it doesnt get too goey, you want it to be just wet enough to stick together, not any more than that.

    skip the pb then, it just helps bind it together, replace with banana or whatever you like, go ahead and be a little creative.
