There are so many bars on the market that it can be overwhelming and difficult to choose the right one. What differentiates one bar from the next is the calorie count, the ingredients, the amount of sugar, protein, fat, and carbs.

1. Look For The Calories And The Serving Size

For example, the label might read two hundred fifty calories but the serving size is half of a bar. If you eat the whole bar, then that’s 500 total calories off the top. If eating the bar as a snack, then it should contain a smaller or snack size number of calories.

2. Look For The Ingredients

Keep it simple. The fewer ingredients, the better

3. Look For The Protein Content

If you’re trying to increase your protein intake, look for bars with a much higher amount of protein rather than a snack size. A good number to look for is 15 to 30g of protein depending on your size. You can go with a smaller amount if you’re just looking for an energy-boosting snack.
