I love working out. Yes, I enjoy my exercise. I have been regularly exercising for a decade and a half. I actually miss it on the days I don’t workout. I do a mix of brisk walking/jogging, strength training and Yoga. I also love to cook and eat nutritious food. We all know that nutrition, exercise and health go hand in hand. Often, we miss out on a very crucial element of exercise which is pre-exercise and post-exercise nutrition. Our body needs protein and carbohydrates to prevent muscle damage and to replenish the body after a strenuous workout. We also need water and electrolytes to replace the fluids lost during the workout.
I normally take a banana and a protein shake after my workout. When I got an opportunity to try RiteBite Max Protein Bars, I grabbed it. This is a perfect bar for a post-workout meal. It is also a great substitute for those times when you just have to skip a meal or have no access to healthy food. I was never a fan of samosa, kachori or burger for a meal or a chocolate bar for that matter.
RiteBite Max Protein Bars come in 3 flavors: Choco Slim, Choco Fudge and Honey Lemon. No prizes for guessing that chocolate is my favorite flavor. Let me take you through each bar:
I do love Chocolate Fudge as a dessert, so I picked this one first to try it. It has a great chocolate taste as well as loads of nuts. I felt it was a little less sweet for my taste. It had a slightly chalky aftertaste which I didn’t like. I had this bar after one of my workouts. It filled me up nicely. It also took care of my protein, carbohydrate, fiber and vitamin needs.
This bar has no added sugar and a really nice chocolate taste. It was my favorite of the lot. It had lots of nuts too which I personally like. In terms of nutrition it is similar to the other two bars.
This bar has a strong lemon flavor and the sweetness of honey. It was different as in it didn’t have chocolate. 🙂 But the lemon was a bit too strong for my liking. Overall, it is a reasonably good tasting bar.
I can see myself consuming all these bars in the future too.
When can you eat RiteBite Max Protein Bars?
Breakfast replacement: I see them as a great way to get some good stuff in the morning when your body really needs it especially if you are the kind who skips breakfasts.
Meal replacement: I know of a lot of people who skip meals especially in the Corporate world. If you have these bars close at hand, you can have them even on the go. That way you give your body something nutritious and filling, and it hardly takes any time to eat.
After workouts: Please do pay special attention to your diet after workout. You must have water, carbohydrates and proteins within 45 minutes after your workout. Many of us don’t have access to this nutrition post nutrition; have this bar as a great way to replenish your body. It is substantial and offers everything your body needs after exercise.
