I had a friend email me today about the success she's having with Fullbars. She says it really does make her full and eat less.
I'm skeptical that it's all in her head. You eat this 170 calorie bar before a meal - so just to negate that it has to make you eat at least 170 calories less of your meal. Why not just eat your meal and save the $2 per bar?
I checked out their program and meal plans. It is just like anything else, a low calorie diet. About 580 calories of their product plus a piece of fruit and a nutritious dinner.

Hmmm I've heard of these but I'm just not sure. Along the same idea have you heard of THINK Bars and products??

You can eat about 6 ounces of skinless chicken breast for 170 calories. Id rather have that.

170 calories is:

- Two and a half apples
- Nearly a pound of brussels sprouts
- Over three cups of carrots
- About two thirds of a pineapple
- 1.5 ounces of sharp cheddar
- 1.5 bananas
- 1 serving of steel cut oats
- 19 large shrimp
- An ounce and a quarter of bittersweet chocolate
- Almost three oranges
- 1.7 pounds of mushrooms
- 1.2 cartons of Chobani Greek yogurt

I eat real food, not processed foodlike products.

that is a great analogy! if you ate 2 1/2 apples before each meal, no way will you be able to eat all your meal!!

If I ate two and a half apples before each meal, I'd never be able to eat any of the meal!

Many times my whole meal doesn't consist of 170 calories, so why would I eat that many before the meal?

...and what fun is eating bars anyways? I'd MUCH rather have real food. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I agree. I'm not considering joing this trend. I'd rather eat real food too. I will eat a meal replacement /fiber / protein bar occasionally as a snack. But not for a diet plan.

Your diet sounds super extreme. Are you sure you are losing fat and not just water and precious muscle? Doesn't sound like a great idea, but hey if it works for you then go for it.
