Homemade Protein Bars to Build Muscle, Burn Fat

Save your money buying fat-filled protein bars. Make your own protein bars that will help you build muscle and burn fat.

Check out this video from my friend, Dave Ruel :

Protein bars are great snacks, if you eat the right ones.  Forget about the 100-calorie snack packs and sugary treats for snacks. They leave you unsatisfied, under-nourished and wanting to eat even more.

You have to eat enough of the right foods, all the time, for your body to work properly---whether exercising, working, walking or just plain living. Keeping your body in an anabolic state all the time aids your metabolism, muscle-building, body repair and overall long-term health.

Junk food like chips, pastries, candy, donuts and sodas aren't nutritious and have loads of calories. They also have you wanting to eat more in just a short time. Control your eating with a sound nutrition plan.

Hopefully, your nutrition plan includes protein with every meal. Eating complete proteins from sources like eggs, low-fat diary and fish gives your body a steady stream of protein throughout the day. Research has proven that protein keeps blood sugar levels more steady and helps you feel fuller for a longer period (slower digestion). Protein also keeps the hunger hormone, ghrelin, in check so your hunger doesn't spike so high.

Eat the wrong snacks and it could blow a hole through your fat burning and weight loss goals. Empty calories leave you, well, empty and looking for your next meal too soon.

You could be gaining weight because of your snacks between meals. It doesn't have to be that way.

What you eat for snacks can mean the difference between out-of-control weight gain or weight loss management/fat loss.

Snacks bridge the gap between meals and can help you eat less at regular mealtime.

Going too long between meals can cause you to load up on sugary carbohydrates to get quick energy. These types of snacks are usually high in calories, not very nutritious and cause rapid ups and downs in blood sugar levels.

Up your protein intake with these delicious bars!
