Dr. Allott's Favorite Protein Sources

I like protein bars to have about a 2:1 ratio of total carb to protein, real ingredients (meaning I can pronounce and recognize all of them), no artificial sweeteners (manitol, stevia, aspartame), and no gluten.

  • Stinger Protein Bar - Protein 10 grams, Total carbs 18 grams,  Less than 2:1 Total carbs/protein ratio, Gluten free, Nut free, Real food ingredients, Has chocolate!
  • Zing Bar - Protein 12-15 grams, Total carbs 21-24 grams, Less than 2:1 Total carbs/protein ratio, Gluten free, Real food ingredients, Has chocolate!
  • Square Bar - Protein 12 grams, Total carbs 23 grams, Less than 2:1 Total carbs/protein ratio, Gluten free,  Soy free, Vegan, Real food ingredients, Has chocolate!
  •  Krave Jerky - Protein 8 grams, Total carbs 12 grams, Less than 2:1 Total carbs/protein ratio in a serving, Gluten free,  Soy Real food ingredients.
  • Trader Joes Nut Packs- Protein to Carb ratio will vary. Getting the individual pack will limit the sugar grazing and prevent eating a pound of nuts -- which can be done in a day.
