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.

  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

  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:

250 calorie protein bar

Apple or Pear

250 Calorie protein bar

2 Low fat cheese sticks or 20 nuts or celery with Laughing Cow cheese

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.

My Picks 

Have you ever done a diet similar to the one above? If you are joining me, come to my Facebook page and comment there. 


  1. Thanks for sharing this! I'm going to try some of the recipes to make my own bars. I just hope I don't eat them all at once! :-) lol
