Day 6 Protein Bar Breakdown

Life can be pretty busy so I do not always get to watch much TV.  When I do, I have a couple “go-to” channels and the Food Network is one of them.  I enjoy watching chef’s create amazing meals from some of the most random ingredients.  No matter what show is on, I am glued to the TV watching it.  One of my favorite shows on the Food Network is Restaurant Impossible.  Chef Robert Irvine does not mess around.  He tells people how it is and lets them know if they want their restaurant to succeed, they NEED to make changes.  It is amazing how he transforms some of the dingiest restaurants into something extravagant.  If you have’t watched the show, I highly recommend it.

What I like about Chef Robert Irvine is that he demonstrates you can cook and enjoy food, and still maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Some people believe that if you cook, you will become overweight from sampling the food all the time.  This is definitely not the case and Chef Robert Irvine is living proof.  So, when I learned he had protein bars on the market, I was very excited to try them out.


The Fit and Fab Life

Fit Elite Cookie Dough Protein Bar

This is actually a newer protein bar to the market by Chef Robert Irvine.  I tried it for the first time today and was very impressed with it.  It has 180 calories which is slightly less than most other protein bars.  Of the 5 grams of total fat, only 2 grams come from saturated fat.  The other 3 grams come from the healthy fats.  It has 24 grams of carbohydrates with 15 grams coming from fiber.  This is the most fiber in a protein bar out of all the one’s I have discussed up to this point.  It only has 2 grams of sugar as well.  The protein is about the same as most of the other protein bars with 20 grams of protein.  The protein comes from a mixture of whey and milk protein isolate.
