    Depends on your goals :o Personally, I think they're over-processed crap, lots of high-fructose corn syrup, etc.

    But if you're bulking/maintenance, you can probably get by with them.

    to answer your question, yeah a lot of people slam some whey after a workout. I drink two scoops of ON in the car on the ride home.

    If you eat it with a meal then sure they would be fine.

    Depends on his caloric needs. Balance bars are based on a 40/30/30 ratio of macronutrients also..if you're low-carbing/low-fat or anything like that, you probably don't want them.

    ALWAYS read the label. And not just the nutrition facts, the ingredients too. Is it high in fat? High in carbs? High in both? If it has a good amount of protein, what *kind* of protein are they using?
