When choosing meal replacement bars, weight loss programs force you to choose between candy-bar-like options. They seem to think that people only miss sweets when dieting and that replacing your lunch with a "chocolate" coated crisped rice bar will satisfy.
For those of you who, like me, prefer to eat something that makes you feel like you've eaten lunch, Slim-Fast has a line of high-protein bars. While most of them are the same sort of candy bar substitutes, the peanut butter granola version makes a definite improvement.
The bars taste like peanut butter and the high protein levels make you feel full longer. Add a piece of fruit or a small salad to round out the meal. You'll fees like you ate lunch rather than having a sweet but unsatisfying snack. If you feel full you will be less tempted to snack in the afternoon.
Slim-Fast's high-protein bars make sticking to their plans much easier. You get five bars in a box, instead of six with the regular meal replacement bars, but they are worth the small increase in price.
