protein bar substitution

  1. protein bar substitution

    I am on a cutting cycle. now I assume these are not healthy (like most protein bars), but I snagged 96 of them for $40. I am just not having the time to eat during the day, well, eat anything healthy. I am currently taking
    Anabolic Pump

    Like I said, I am cutting, and was just hoping to substitute these in for a preworkout snack or possibly breakfast.

    As far as where to use them in your diet. Personally I would use them as an immediate (10-25 minutes) before workout meal. I typically go about an hour to 1.5 hours before my workouts, but with the carb source being largely sugar, it will be more beneficial to take it closer to your workout to avoid any hypo issues.

    Aside from the above and post workout I would say try to avoid the bars.

  3. thanks, that is prb when i will use them, preworkout, only on workout days.

  4. how do they taste?
