Never eat these TOXIC protein bars or energy bars

Let's face it... most protein bars or "energy" bars are TERRIBLE for your health while pretending to be healthy.

First, most protein bars are nothing more than glorified candy bars.

In most stores, I find it almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a truly healthy bar to buy for snacks for road trips, flights, hiking excursions, or just to have quick mid day snacks available for work days. 

Here are 3 major issues I see with MOST bars:

1.  Most bars have WAY too much sugar and total carbs and not enough protein or fiber.  These ratios of protein, sugar, and fiber is the first thing I search for when looking at labels, and almost EVERY bar I see at most stores is totally out of whack and a blood sugar nightmare waiting to happen. 

This is where most bars actually make you hungrier in the hours after you eat them, and cause weight gain from hormonal and blood sugar disruptions too.

Unfortunately, most bars that attempt to be lower in sugar use dangerous artificial sweeteners instead.

2.  It's almost impossible to find protein bars that don't use soy protein as the main protein source.  Soy protein is horrendous for your health, and something I try to avoid, but most bars contain it because it's the cheapest protein source available.  Remember that most soy protein also originated from genetically modified soy, which some animal studies are showing causes extreme digestive system inflammation and possible tumors.

3.  Most bars don't contain enough healthy fats... they either try to be too low-fat overall (making them not satisfying for your appetite), or the fats that they do contain are highly processed omega-6 fats or even trans fats in some cases that I've seen.

While most bars are positioned as “healthy,” these fat loss–and health-derailing nightmares are full of simple sugars, damaged and denatured fats, dirt-cheap and unhealthy protein, and usually a slew of artificial colors, dangerous sweeteners, and preservatives.

Just take a look at the labels on these supposed “health bars” and you’ll likely see ingredients like partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats), safflower oil or other inflammatory omega-6 oils, corn syrup, corn starch, high fructose corn syrup (from GM corn), sugar, brown sugar, fructose (even worse than sugar for your blood chemistry), maltodextrin and dextrose (carbohydrates whose glycemic index is even higher than sugar!), canola oil (and you might know that canola oil is terrible for you), sucralose and aspartame (which are chemical, artificial sweeteners, possibly linked to cancer and sucralose is shown to damage your gut flora), and the list goes on and on.

In reality, these “obesity additives” are some of the worst things you can put in your body if your goal is to achieve a flat belly and improve your health. Not only can they wreak havoc on your blood sugar, hormones, and cardiovascular risk factors, but they can outright STOP fat loss dead in its tracks, leaving you wondering why, despite all your efforts to eat healthy, your body fat stores just won’t seem to budge.

This brings us to another very important point to consider when choosing a protein bar: protein quality.

You see, the #1 protein source used in most protein bars is soy protein, one of the cheapest protein sources in the world.

Do you think that’s a coincidence? Not a chance! Unfortunately, soy protein contains BOTH phytoestrogens and xenoestrogens that act like estrogen in the body and have been linked to numerous health problems, including decreased thyroid output in women and decreased testosterone levels in men.

This is really bad news, because less thyroid hormone means less calorie burning and more fat storage for you.  And low testosterone for men can make it impossible to build any strength or muscle and lose any fat, among other major problems that Low T causes for men.

Finally, a brand-new ORGANIC high-protein, healthy-fat, high-fiber bar that's soy-free, gluten-free, with no artificial sweeteners and tastes great!

Introducing the delicious, nutritious, and ultra-convenient BioTrust Organic Protein Bars!

Each BioTrust Organic Protein Bar is made up of an array of Certified Organic ingredients, including...

20 Grams of Organic Protein (zero soy) and a whopping 14 Grams of Organic prebiotic fiber for healthy digestion and improved gut flora!

That’s more fiber than a FiberOne® bar, which has barely any protein at all and has too much sugar.

Not only that, but BioTrust Organic Protein Bars are officially the FIRST Organic Protein Bar in the entire industry made with organic whey protein.  They also contains organic rice protein and organic pea protein making for a unique combination of high quality proteins without any harmful cheap soy protein!

But what about the taste?

Well, you’ll be happy to know that BioTrust Organic Protein Bars taste absolutely incredible... in fact, I just enjoyed one of these new bars with a cup of tea earlier today and they taste like choc chip cookie dough in my opinion!

While being made up of a very short list of ultra-high-quality organic ingredients unlike other bars that have to resort to a mile-long list of health–and fat-loss-sabotaging fillers to even make their “frankenfood” protein bar creations edible.

In fact, each BioTrust Organic Protein Bar is a healthy, ultra-convenient, and completely balanced meal that boasts an ideal blend of low-glycemic organic carbohydrates and an array of healthy fats to compliment the 20 grams of organic protein and 14 grams of fiber contained in each bar.

What about the sweeteners used?

These new Organic Protein Bars use a mixture of organic stevia and organic honey for the sweetener, which is perfect in my opinion. 

With this mixture, these bars are lower in sugar than most bars, but the sugar that they do contain is derived from healthy organic honey which contains unique antioxidants not found in other sugar sources.   And combined with the massive 14 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein, you end up with a snack or small meal that's very low in glycemic response helping to keep your blood sugar balanced.

This means you REDUCE your cravings and keep a fat-burning environment humming along inside your body!

The truth is, you can’t even buy a fattening dollar menu meal consisting of unappetizing mystery meat, soggy fries, and a flat soda for the same low price as these organic protein bars which make a much healthier and quick meal alternative for on-the-go.

Even more, you’ll pay an even higher price for many of the low-quality, TOXIC protein bars at your local convenience store than you will for a premium BioTrust Organic Protein Bar containing all-natural organic ingredients and top-grade organic protein, fiber, and healthy fats.
