It's really a toss up. They either have flour in them, tons of fiber, or tons of sugar alcohols...all of which can cause gas. Just have to find out with one has ingredients that are least offensive to you.
This is just my opinion, but I don't see bars as being a replacement for shakes. Shakes are good because they don't take up a lot of room and are easy on the stomach for the amount of protein they have in them. If you eat a bar, I mean, why not just eat food? Cheese or beef jerky have just as much or more protein in them...

I am one who, apparently, cannot do shakes. EVERY.SINGLE.SHAKE.I.HAVE.TRIED causes me gas. I'm pretty much done trying. The only liquid protein I can use that doesn't make me sick is the stuff in tubes, which all the "experts" tell me is not as good a protein as I can find in a shake. Tell ya' what...it's a better protein than nothing...which is where I am now.
And SOME of VitaLady's bars have no sugar alcohols, but I have four boxes of Chocolate Marshmallow bars sitting in my cupboard because AFTER I ordered them and ate one and started getting sick, I saw that they contain "malitol syrup." (The Lemon Bars don't...the Chocoate Marshmallow bars do.)
