Cliff Bar Original Good for: “They’re great for a heavy snack or a light meal, depending on your calorie needs,” Alspaugh says. The bar’s high-calorie, high-carb, high-protein profile means it’s equivalent to a little more than an ounce of meat. Pitfalls: It’s a keeper for athletes, but for those trying to lose weight or as a mid-morning snack in the office, it’s a bit too high in calories. Final verdict: Eat this bar an hour or so before a hard workout or after a long endurance activity, such as hiking. Luna Bar Good for: The bar designed for and by women comes in plenty of tasty flavors and is ideal for long meetings and to tide you over during long breaks between meals. Pitfalls: Alspaugh had no qualms about Luna Bars, thanks to their average nutritional profile of 170 calories, 3 to 5 grams of fiber, 26 carbohydrates, and only 0.5 grams of saturated fat. Final verdict: “I think these are a great fit for most women who are physically active and trying to maintain their weight,” she says. Bonus: Luna Bars may be geared toward women, but they’re a great option for men, too! Pro Bar Good for: “This is truly a meal replacement or recovery bar,” Alspaugh says. With 375 to 400 calories, 40 to 45 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of fiber, and 12 grams of protein, Pro Bars are ideal for endurance athletes. Pitfalls: If you’re trying to lose weight, Pro Bars may not be your best option. Final verdict: One hundred percent organic and vegan, with no protein powder additives, Pro Bars are a great meal replacement for high-endurance athletes and those trying to gain weight. “This bar is a winner for the individual who needs a high-cal, whole-foods-based bar,” says Alspaugh. PowerBar Good for: The PowerBar Harvest Energy Bar is ideal for consumption before moderate intensity exercise, our expert says. Pitfalls: At 240 calories, 42 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of protein, and 1 gram of saturated fat, this may be a bit heavy for an office snack. Final verdict: PowerBars are nicely balanced, but save them for when you need a quick fuel boost before a workout.
