Kellogs fiber plus bars vs Fiber One Bars

Which ones is better and better for you? I know both have sugar in them and not really low carb, but my husband who does not have a weight problem is borderline diabetic and I'm helping him change his eating habbits, I know he would not care for the atkin bars or advantage bars.

I have tried them both and honestly if I were to suggest any higher carb bar I would suggest Kashi bars at least they are all natural and the carb count isn't bad. HTH

Not to be a 'debbie downer' but if your hubby is border line diabetic, he really needs to do some research of his own and then decide if he wants to continue to eat sugar - in whatever form.

There is a ton of information available on the net or in book form. Personally, I have a family history of type 2 diabetes and therefore, I am eating like I have it in order to avoid it.

I agree with Cathy. I eat like a diabetic because my two sisters have type2, and I'm trying to avoid it. And my endo agrees that my low carb WOE is what's probably keeping me from developing diabetes.

Your husband doesn't need to have a weight problem to avoid starch and sugar! Just check out Dr. Richard Bernstein's website, and you'll see that starch and sugar are poison for diabetics (or the pre-diabetic).

If you and your husband want to control his blood sugar, you need to get informed because the advice you'll get from most doctors and nutritionists will have him on meds in no time!

Yeah, I'm sorry Debbie Downer 3 here.....with that type of bar, he really is eating himself to a full blown diagnosis.

This is his "sign" weight problem or not.

You might try the Quest Bars though!

It is only a little better (sugar wise) than a candy bar.

The Kashi trail mix is super yummy! The fiber one dark chocolate is as well.

They are candy in my book. I don't see how it could be healthy. Its like a chewy candy bar and way sweet.

Not diabetic friendly and not low-carb. If your husband is borderline diabetic, eating these bars will most likely push him over that thin line.

I used to eat all these bars myself. Not saying this is why I am now diabetic but I am sure it did contribute to it.

Here's a homemade recipe I got from a friend...

2 cups of oats
1 cup ground nuts of choice. (I like cashews and almonds)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds.
1/2cup of honey.
2tbsp melted butter.

Mix the dried ingredients into a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients into a bowl. Mix dried with wet, then spread onto a greased sheet. Cook at 300° for 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

I don't know how honey would affect a borderline diabetic, but maybe use a natural, sugar-free peanut butter instead...
