What are your experiences?
What are your opinions on meal replacements? Shakes, bars etc...
I usually have them: a chocolate or white chocolate protein bar to satisfy my cravings. It is around 210 cals and I have it with a fruit in the morning as breakfast. Thus my breakfast would be around 265 cals. (Btw: do you think this is too little?)
My problem is that it is so small and compact for so much calories even if my mind thinks I am eating chocolate. LOL
I can have oats and yogurt for the equivalent calories and it is normal food !!
But cravings cravings cravings hey...
Protein bars has stopped me from over-indulging many times before so it is still my go to choice.
- I do not think they are healthy for you mind
- You can get better nutrients from normal food
-They sometimes satisfy my cravings
-While satisfying my craving I stay within my calorie range
-They do taste good (most times)
