Losing Weight With Protein Bars



Years ago, when I needed to lose weight quickly because I overindulged, I would do my protein bar diet. I was very successful losing weight that way. The diet has its pro and cons but if you do it right, it can be very healthy.

Pros:
  1. Easy to do and can start the diet very rapidly
  2. Saves you a lot of money especially if you make your own protein bars
  3. Great for those on to go

Cons:
  1. Can leave you very hungry especially if you don't consume your fruit, vegetables and drink your water
  2. If you buy certain bars, they can be high in sugar
  3. Not great for a long-term weight loss
  4. You can't do heavy workouts while doing this program

Losing weight with protein bars diet example:

Breakfast
250 calorie protein bar
Water

Mid-morning
Apple or Pear
Water

Lunch
250 Calorie protein bar
Banana
Water

Mid-afternoon
2 Low fat cheese sticks or 20 nuts or celery with Laughing Cow cheese
Water

Dinner
3 to 4 ounces of meat
1 to 2 cups of vegetables(no peas or corn as a veggie) or large salad
I would add a serving of carbohydrates and it depended upon how hungry I was. I would have a 1/2 cup(250ml) of cooked rice or beans or corn.
