this is a hot topic around here...I will tell you I use protein bars, probably once a day. All shakes literally have my dry heaving, I just cannot do it. I keep my carbs very low during the day, and in the evenings I have a protein bar. Yes they are higher in carbs, but if I have had realitively no carbs throughout the day, I feel I can splurge on a bar to get my protein up. Recently I have discovered NatureS Valley Protein bars and love them. Yes, they have 17 grams of carbs......but......well, I need the protein. Anyway, that is my 2cents.
