9 Bariatric Protein Bar options that are low carb and don't taste like chalk

I have a love-hate relationship with Protein Bars. We all have those times when we can't cook EVERY meal. We are super busy and need a quick quality protein bar meeting our requirements.

9 Best Bariatric Protein Bars

When reading the ingredient label pay special attention to the total carbs. To calculate the net carbs, subtract the dietary fiber and sugar alcohols from Total Carbs. Please see this sample image from a bulletproof bar: Please note: each flavor for a brand may have different carbs
