    Ok so I was wondering if these protein bars from decathlon are actually any good? I bought a pack of 3 and they taste too nice to be not full of calories!!

    Compared to any other type of snack bar I can find they are pretty good and compared to other types of protein bars they are pretty average.. can anyone shed some light on it please? BTW im trying to lose weight - im under 10% bf already - but am really struggling to eat 6 small meals a day and wondering if 2 of these a day instead of eating a sandwich or jacket potato was better?

    Nutritional info below:
    Per 50g bar:
    185 kcal
    17.5g protein
    6g fat (3.5 sat fat)
    17.5g carbs
    of which 6g sugar
    4g fibre

    This is obviously way better than them snack bars you buy from the supermarket - a lot less carbs/sugar in these bars.. and carb/protein ratio is the same..

    but with them tasting so nice, I was wondering if anyone had any advice? lol

    I'm going to be blunt... are you fat? lol they seem to taste too nice to be actually alright.. I mean apart from drained tuna with some peri peri sauce, or low fat cottage cheese, they seem alright, but compared to them 2 things ^ which is basically, along with eggs, what I live on, they seem pretty high in calories!

    Lol nah I don't, I was kidding But my brother does, he's trying to beef up for his school rugby season... he has a superfast metabolism, so I don't know if that stops him from getting fat from them.

    Well they obviously have **** all calories because 185 is **** all and that's how many calories they have.

    They probably cost a lot considering they have **** all calories (which is indicative of having **** all of anything in them). I wouldn't eat them.

    Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge Bars - Cheap and much better than the vast majority of shop bought bars

    4 scoops of chocolate whey protein (or unflavoured plus 4 teaspoons of cocoa)
    4 scoops of milled flax/linseed
    4 big spoonfuls of peanut butter
    1/4 cup of water

    Mix together in a bowl, roll into 4 or so balls and put in the fridge.

    I'm on this, might have to add some oats though... And when you say scoops of flax are we talking the standard whey scoops or tablespoons? Cos that sounds like a lot of flax!
    And OP what are you on about? you sound like you haven't got a clue, what are you trying to achieve by eating these bars? weight gain? weight loss?

    Standard Whey Scoops = ~30g

    I got 3kg of brown linseed (apparently it's much the same/the same as flax) for less than a fiver here - even with postage costs it's significantly cheaper than anywhere else.
