Haven't had the Slimfast Full bar, but I love the Fiber One bars. Very chocolatey. I buy the chewy version (chocolate and oats), only 100cal. They have a variety of items to choose from.

Hi AMARISRON

I haven't tried them, but the idea behind them is fiber.

If you look at the nutritional content they have about 2-3g of fiber.
Along with it you're getting 12g of sugar.
90 calories

It should be easy to find something more natural and get the 2-3g of fiber.

A piece of Rye bread (eliminates the sugar)
1 cup of carrots
1 small banana
1 orange

I haven't looked into that particular product, but if it's anything like the rest of the Slimfast line, it's got a lot of additives and is highly processed.

Instead, I would suggest a couple of things: look at your intake earlier in the day. Are you setting yourself up to want/need to eat at night because you're undereating or making poor choices during the day? I'm finding more and more that my lunch choices have a huge effect on how my evening goes food-wise.

If you are eating well for breakfast and lunch and still feel the need for a snack, how about a handful of nuts, greek yogurt, or some carrots or other veggie? All of these will help you feel full and have some nutritional value to them.

Are you drinking enough water during the day? I find that if I'm circling the fridge, sometimes a big glass of water will distract me enough to quiet the "eat it" chatter in my head.

Has anyone tried the slimfast full bar? If so what are your opinions on it? Worth a try or a gimick? I am looking for help with night time munchies and was thinking this may help!
