    Add up to 500 calories to your diet for $1.75/day


    There is no magic to getting big, no secret supplements, no secret science, and no secret workout techniques. You work out hard, you train with intensity, you lift heavy, and most importantly, you eat like a champ. If you cannot train yourself to eat big you will never grow large and dense muscles.

    I know, I know, bodybuilding is expensive. I know this very well. One can’t deny the fact that it is expensive to eat the amounts of calories needed to grow. I personally go on a bulking spree maybe 3 months in a row and stop because I simply can’t keep my budget going to steaks, burgers, chicken, whey, protein bars, etc…

    There are people on this site that spend their whole budget on supplements and have nothing left over for food/whey/meal replacement type products. I remember some time ago there was a thread where we were sharing supplement stash pictures and someone’s entire stash was a host of Test boosters, Anti-estrogens, and Nutrient partitioners… I then showed my stash which consisted of 5 tubs of 5lb whey proteins and the guy insisted his stash was more conducive to growth than mine… LOL. Yes he a lot smaller than me. Point is, simply adding more protein and calories to your diet will do 10x more work on your physique than any supplements will. Hell, not even steroids can make you grow if you are not eating big so don’t expect supplements to. General rule of thumb for money spending on bulks is:

    1) Foods
    2) Meal replacements or additions
    3) Whey
    4) Supplements

    The stack I will mention which adds 500 calories to your diet falls under Meal replacements or additions. So, after you have your food needs taken care of, look into our Mass Protein Bars Stack. It will cost you $1.75/day to make 24 all natural and customizable protein bars with about:

    500 calories
    10g of fat
    39g of carbs (27g sugar from honey)
    38g of protein

    You cannot buy a bar this dense in calories and nutrients for under $3…

    Note: I did not factor in the cost of honey although it is very cheap and only 3/4th cup is needed to make 12 bars and I’m sure everyone has some already in their home.

    Bars are very easy to make. Just put it all together, mix it up by hand, and cut into pieces and leave in the fridge.

    Also, when I say they are customizable, it means you can add more protein powder to them, more peanut butter, more honey, oats, etc to make them either more or less nutrient dense. You can easily reach beyond 500 calories and easily under because they are customizable.

    This thread is mainly for people bulking and the self-proclaimed “hard gainers” *cough* under eaters *cough*. If you are cutting and interested in using these bars post your questions in here and I will adjust some things for you.

    Judgementday don't get mad I used your picture... you made some sweet looking bars lol.

    One last thing, I urge you all to check out Nutraplanet prices for Needtobuildmuscle supplements. You can thank me later... but thank Nutra now. HCGenerate, N2KTS, and Need2slin are at an all time low price... do this after you have your food, meal replacement/additions, and whey needs taken care of of course

    Any questions and comments?

    Great post CM.. These bars are so damn good guys. Keep in mind you can also mix power butter with any of the flavors to get the better macros and more calories/protein per bar instead of using regular natty PB.

    Check the ingredients too fellas. This is exactly why I love them even more. Now check the label of a protein bar you pick up at the gym or store. Ha, yup. Nuff said.

    There very easy to make and the taste of every flavor is just amazingly good.

    Ok I'll shut up now

    Sure buddy... All natural...

    Oatmeal
    Whey protein
    Wheat germ
    Raisins
    Cranberries
    Almonds
    All natural peanut butter
    Honey

    And depending which wet ingredient you use (water, milk, almond milk etc). And remember they are completely customizable so you can add more oats, protein, PB, or anything really.

    There are absolutely no sugar alcohols. And unlike most of the top selling expensive protein bars with half as many calories and protein in stores... our bars dont have the same ingredients as a Twinkie lol.

    How do you choose from the different' flavors?

    ETA: From your website.

    ETA2: Ok, I'm assuming there is just one flavor for the 'stack'.

    You don't need to buy the stack. You can just buy any flavor but you have to use the Power Butter to get the different macros. More protein/Less fats.

    Better Bars are downright amazing.....Green Apple is my favorite, but I like adding a scoop of Vanilla Isolation or Cupcake Batter whey into the mix just to up the protein a tad....even my mother likes them with her tea at night and in the morning

    You add artificial flavoring to them you could add flavoring stevia or even pistachios.

    Protein Crisps can be added for a crunchy texture to the bar and some straight whey isolate protein. N2Mix has chocolate whey crisps plus fruit/nuts. You could also add nuts, protein powder, egg whites... I wouldn't add chicken or beef though

    I'm actually not sure why I didn't think of that. Adding in N2Mix would be perfect, man. You could totally pack cals into those bars. Would be great for the guys doing IF, too, because you wouldn't have to worry too much about only being able to have one bar or minimal cals.

    lol @ the meat, too

    Was a bit unsure about that flavour, not sure how chocolate and raspberry will go. That said, got one pack of that, apple and the butterscotch... can't wait :-D

    Will do, CM is to thank for getting me to give these a shot . Would love to make these a staple, so hard to find healthy bars with decent macros and no crap, without tasting like cardboard. Here's hoping :-D.

    Damnit, bummed that for some reason I got sent two sour apple instead of the chocolate raspberry I ordered

    That said... Simply amazing bars. Little gooey but DAMN! Little too tasty to be healthy hehe. I can almost eat them like candy bars. Think I'll have to stock up on these badboys!

    They're one of those healthy treats that fit in most people's macros. It's oats, protein, peanut butter and honey in the right balance.
