Nutrition On The Go With Nutribar Meal Replacement Bars
The first time I ate a Nutribar was when I was a sales representative travelling across Eastern and Central Ontario. I was on the road driving for long hours or visiting clients. My eating schedule was all out of whack and I found myself eating on the go and grabbing junk food. I also started gaining weight because I was sitting in my car for such a prolonged time and too tired in the evening to do much. My energy level was low and I felt sleepy during the day. I decided to change my eating habits and look for meal replacement bars that I could eat on the road.
While shopping at a drug store, I came across Nutribar and decided to try them. The bars were rich in flavours and tasty, and they also kept my hunger away for hours. Even today, I try my best to eat healthy most of the time, but with my hectic lifestyle and family schedule, I don’t always have time to prepare a healthy meal. I find that Nutribar has all the nutrients I need in a meal when I am on the go. I don’t feel sluggish anymore and I keep the pounds off!
Not all nutrition bars are created equal. “We all know that keeping up a healthy lifestyle in today’s 24-7 world isn’t easy and it’s even more challenging when it comes to maintaining or losing weight,” said Brenda Embree, Nutribar Brand Manager. “No one can deny that eating a healthy, balanced diet of whole foods is optimal, but who has the time to consistently prepare proper meals three times a day, every day?” That’s where Nutribar meal replacement bars come in. As opposed to protein bars that are intended as a snack to manage hunger between meals and may not have an optimal nutritional breakdown, Nutribar meal replacement bars provide “Nutrition on the Go”. The bars deliver all the essential vitamins and minerals, protein, carbs and fat found in a completely balanced whole foods meal without the required time and energy to prepare it.”
Also unlike protein bars, Nutribar meal replacement bars are regulated under Canadian government guidelines and approved by Health Canada. What’s more, clinical studies show that Nutribar meal replacement bars satisfy hunger and cravings for up to five hours, eliminating the desire to snack between meals.
According to Embree, replacing one meal a day with a Nutribar meal replacement bar not only saves time, but also helps maintain a healthy weight. Replacing two meals a day with a Nutribar meal bar has been clinically shown to lead to weight loss of up to eight pounds over six weeks. “Complete Nutribar meal replacement bars with nutritious eating the rest of the day as well as a regular exercise plan, and you’ve got yourself an optimal healthy lifestyle that fits into a busy schedule,” she said.
