Regardless of whatever we say PROBAR® is or isn’t intended for, I will continue to hear the question “Is it meal replacement or is it an energy bar?” While my preferred response is “both” it seems that in our world of defined boundaries and our desire for exactness the reply “both” leaves too much wiggle room for some.
I mean, how do you explain your use of PROBAR® to others?
The truth is I eat a PROBAR® in some situations as a meal replacement when I’m on the go or simply don’t feel like eating a pile of food but still want a healthy 350-400 calories that a meal would provide.
When I have a bit of self control, which isn’t as often as one would expect, I will nibble on a bar eating 1/4 to 1/3 as a snack in between meals.
But when I’m backcountry skiing or cycling I will eat a bar as a great source of energy and not care about the calories or this or that many grams.
So the question again – “Is it meal replacement or is it an energy bar?”
After reading a recent review of the Koka Moka I’d reply with the reviewer – PROBAR® is food.
