    I'm going to Miami for a week, and want to know which brand of protein bars are good for substitutes of my daily protein shakes...

    (I don't wanna get in trouble for bringing protein powder through the airports.)

    :ugh: i wouldnt worry that much, protein bars are usually a much shittier source of protein than say a burger or steak etc.

    ok. should i look more into those meal replacement bars? I don't like the idea of staying hungry in a hotel room at 2am.

    no you should look more into the readily available, more nutritious and cheap alternative of real food.

    I liked the opitmum protein diet bars. 20g of protein and like 180 calories. Though now I've been eating the grow protein bars from biotest:)greddy: , I know but they do taste good). Like others have said you shouldn't completely rely on it, but use them when you need some quick protein, when it is not readily avaliable.

    When I travel I pack a couple protein bars and then some protein powder in a tupperware container.

    The protein bars work great for afternoon snacks. I found one I really like and it is Smores flavored but for hte life of me I can't remember. I also will by the Designer Whey ones like U-turn, One Way, etc.

    dieting on vacation = lose

    forget the protein, enjoy yourself.

    I don't usually "diet" while on vacation, but I still prefer to get a decent amount of protein.

    yea, buy some beef jerkey instead of protein bars. just as portable and convenient, much healthier.
