    I think the "low carb" bars are best avoided as they use sneaky tricks to try and say they are lower in carbs than they really are. Its so disappointing isn't it, we can't even trust the labels on our foods sometimes.

    Perhaps just use low carb bars in an emergency, like when you are on the run and that's all you can get. Or if you are really, really craving a sweet fix.

    This is a quote from the article

    Problem Ingredients in "Low-Carb" Packaged Foods

    Be wary of meal replacement bars, ice cream, and other "treats" labeled low-carb or sugar-free. They often contain ingredients such as maltitol (the worst offender) which are just as bad as sugar in a lot of bodies. In general, products that talk about their "net carbs" or "impact carbs" deserve close scrutiny of the ingredients, and careful experimentation.

    maltitol can cause lots of problems in your tummy (pains, wind, cramps etc)
    if you eat too much. Low carb bars usually have maltitol to replace the sugar but it is evil stuff (I speak from experience)

    I'd like to ask you guys a genuine question. Are you all doing low carb temporarily till you lose desired amount of weight or is it long term? if short term how will you maintain your weight once you introduce carbs again?

    We answered this already


    For me with the wls I've had i need to always eat protein first, vegetables next, carbs last (there really isnt room after that) so for me when i have gotten to goal, i will increase my carbohydrates slowly, through fruits and vegetables. I wont return to bread and pasta and chocolate etc.

    I had more luck calorie counting, portion size control and refraining from eating processed food than restricting carbs to be honest. However I think it is because I am fairly active. I tried the low carb as so many swore by it, but I don't feel as high energy as I did just calorie counting.
    I think it's a very effective way to lose weight, but you are right - it needs to be a lifestyle change not just a diet.
