Quest bars

Hi guys,

Any thoughts on quest bars? Do you use them? Have they had any negative effects for you? Any feedback would be much appreciated!

I have a few on hand as emergency meal replacements. They have too many total carbs for me to eat them recreationally. The last time I ate one was early August.

Thanks misti, yeah i was thinking that too, i don't tend to be convinced by the net carb thing in food i haven't cooked myself. Even before NK i tend to cook from scratch so a little. It suspicious. I just checked on amazon and some people say quest bars elevate their blood sugar. Something to be wary of methinks.

I'm not too crazy about them either, but someone mentioned that they melt them a bit in the microwave bad said they were really good this way. I need to try it.

Yes, they do taste much better microwaved for about 10 seconds.

Funny, same topic came up on another forum I was visiting:

this is what I said

I actually did an experiment with Quest protein bars checking my blood sugars periodically afterwards... and was surprised that it actually bumped me to the 140-150 range. This was pretty consistent across all flavors. When I brought it up to their customer service they gave me a refund.

Something to keep in mind. It's not consistent across everyone, but there are enough people out there with this effect that if you google it, you'll find some results.

Bff i had a look yesterday and you're right, loads of people had problems with it, some don't experience difficulty, i'm not a diabetic but its making me think i should go see my doc!!

I tried it in the microwave but i blasted it for 20 secs lol, never mind tried it at least and i bought two so not such a waste, they are $3.5 dollars each where i live! I'll test the other one on my husband, see what happens to him!
