I like to have a protein bar before I go running because I notice I am able to run longer with the energy it gives me, plus I'm a vegetarian so I try to eat as much protein wherever I can get it. Unfortunately, I was looking at the ingredients in the bars I currently have and I barely knew anything that was in there, so I can only assume it's full of a lot of processed ingredients. Are there any bars you recommend that are high in protein but good for you?

I hate to break it down to you but anything with protein (bars, powders, etc) are usually (like 99.99%) bad for you. See, the proteins that you get there are usually whey protein and although it's good and natural in food like meats, it's really bad when not in elements. Eat some fruit like an apple or something (sugar and water, great for cardio) and avoid at all costs protein bars and powders. I'm a doctor and most of my clients got diabetes because of protein powders. And as a piece of advice, eat some sort of B-12 protein supplement....

Unfortunately Patrick, I'm not. I can elaborate a specific topic you disagree with if you want to. If not, ask any nutritionist or certified medic (not those PT in gyms, my daughter knows more about nutrition than those guys) ask them f whey protein powder is good for you.

Quest protein bars are the most superior protein bars I've found on the market. They're also really tasty. They're genius.

I don't really eat protein bars, but my brother does and he uses pure protein, which are pretty good bars. The best thing to do is basically research anything you don't know.  Unfortunately, it sounds like you are looking for a bit more protein and the best way to do that in a bar is usually one that has some processed ingredients. Instead of using bars you could make yourself protein shakes like I do. It is sometimes more of a pain then a bar, but it can be more enjoyable. You can pick powders that are pre flavored or just buy plain unflavored powder and make a fruit smoothie and throw it in there.  Hope this helped!

Save your money, they're only good for the companies that sell them.
