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?

    Are protein bars inherently more unhealthy than protein shakes?

    Considering a shake is just powdered whey in milk, whereas the bar is covered in chocolate or whatever? Would bars be worse for you than shakes in terms of nutritional value?

    better than store bought bars, yes. if you make your own bars, not necessarily. store bought bars put preservatives in them that are not good for you.

    Damn. The protein bars are the only thing I can stomach (literally). The shakes make me cramp and other fun gastrointestinal things. Bars go down no problem.

    Try this recipe for protein bars... it is amazing, I LOVE them.

    I'm going from memory here:

    3 scoops protein powder, or more if you want.
    1 small packet of sf ff pudding mix
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1/2 cup oatmeal
    1.5 tsp banana extract... if you want
    splenda to taste
    small amount of water to get the mixture to stick together.

    Stir it all together, press it into a pan, and refrigerate. So So good. I've made tons of combinations using different types of protein powder and pudding. Chocolate chocolate, chocolate banana, berry protein powder with cherry pudding..
