ENERGY AND “NUTRITION” BARS ARE JUNK

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:04pm

By Ray Salomone, Personal Trainer and Wellness Activist

This we already knew or you should’ve known. Compressed crap with slick marketing. MSNBC contributor writer Diane Mapes now details how these bars are also bad for your teeth.  (And please don’t consider this a minor issue, many diseases begin after bacteria enters the blood stream from the gums)

  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32765018/ns/health-diet_and_nutrition/

 But my favorite line of the article, in fact one of my favorite lines this year, comes from a 49 year old woman who was interviewed for the article. When she was told by her dentist that these bars were giving her cavities, she was quite dismayed and said,

 “…what am I going to eat now?”

   HOW ABOUTFOOD?  

Has real food become so far removed from our line of thinking that it isn’t a first option? Sadly, yes it has. So many of us are still searching for a shortcut, even a miracle. There are no short cuts. Never will be.

Eat real, unprocessed food that nourishes the body instead of decomposing it. Cut up vegetables, put them in a container and now you have a snack that is infinitely better for you  than a bar that promises to help you complete the Iron Man challenge.
