Can you provide more nutrition information?

I don't advocate supplements; I recommend people eat real food once they are far enough out from surgery.  That said, these look pretty decent to me, though some might say they have a smidgeon too much sugar.  I still prefer Quest bars which have a slightly better nutritional profile and lots of fiber -- something RNY patients rarely get enough of.

quest bars are junk. I not only dump on them but I also get severe RH after I eat one.

I don't know what you mean by "junk."  Their nutritional information is the best I've seen in terms of total calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, and fiber.  They do have a small amount of sugar alcohols that cause some people distress but I'm baffled on how someone can actually dump on something that has almost zero net carbohydrates.

These have more sugar, fat and calories than the Pure Protein bars I use, but it's probably not enough to be significant if you only use them occasionally.  Food is always better, but they would be okay in a pinch-if you tolerate them.

I'll add another vote for Quest bars!  Love them and use them pre run to keep from bonking late in my workouts!  All of that said, whatever works for you...I do think different people react differently to different foods and try to steer clear of the one size fits all advice.
