When your on the go and feeling hungry you may be entertaining ideas of going to a fast food joint. Fast food contains loads of empty calories, saturated fat, and very few nutrients, so it is definitely not the best option if your trying to drop a few pounds. Having a few protein bars stashed away in your car or purse could help save you from dining on fast food when your out and about.
Protein bars are a good meal replacement from time to time but should not be a regular meal. They are great snacks for active individuals or an occasional meal for the not so active, averaging about 300 calories per bar and can keep you metabolism running.
So you may want to stock up on some bars just in case you find yourself in a situation where you need to eat and going home for a healthy meal is not an option.
