Some brands are loaded up with extra sugar, salt and fats to taste nicer. Also some varieties don’t have any fibre and too much protein can bind you up.

You can get bored eating the same flavour or type.

Is it OK to have 2 protein bars a day?

Yes, but make sure you eat a variety of healthy foods as well, like vegetables, lean protein, wholegrains, healthy fats, etc., as well.

One concern is for each time you have a protein bar, which means some other foods are missing out for an assorted diet.

 

Should I eat protein bar before or after workout?

Ideally get the protein in a few times throughout the day. As long as your total protein intake is enough and varied, it isn’t really an issue when you take it.

You don’t want a huge heavy high protein meal before you work out though, as it can make you feel sluggish.

 

Does protein burn belly fat?

Protein by itself doesn’t burn belly fat. It is the total calories consumed, versus the energy used (Exercise, activity, rest, sleep.) will dictate if you gain weight or lose weight.

If the calories eaten are less than the body needs, you will lose weight. The body will reduce the fat from around the body and depending on genetics, a certain amount of belly fat will also be reduced.

Protein can help maintain muscle on a calorie reduced diet. Protein is also filling, so that can make protein helpful on a diet.

The answer to this question is similar to the above question. If you eat more than your body needs, you will gain weight.
