Finibar vs Metabolic Drive Bars


#1

Would one be better than the other for meal replacements or snacks? Also are the carbs in Finibars the same type of “thermic” carbs that are found in Plazma & MAG-10?

Thanks for your help.

You can read the labels and ingredients for both in the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/"target=“new”>Biotest Store.

Generally speaking, <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/finibar-competition-bar"target=“new”>Finibars are for pre-workout and competitions while <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/metabolic-drive-bars"target=“new”>Metabolic Drive Bars are any-time snacks or meal replacements, though many people eat Finibars for meals too.

Thanks. I have read the ingredients and both seem to have normal good complete proteins. Metabolic Drive seems to have normal simple carbs, but I’m not sure about the carbs in Finbars. Are they the “thermic” type carbs found in Plazma & MAG-10? Finbars have 16 more grams of carbs than Metabolic Drive, so I’m trying to figure out which would be best for meal replacements or snacks when fat loss is the primary goal.

They share some of the same carb sources. Speaking for myself, I simply can’t get fat on Finibars regardless of the higher carbs. I eat 4 per day on average (and remember I’m a former carbo-phobe!) Tim Patterson, founder of Biotest, told me that’s it’s nearly impossible to get fat on Finibars, so dammit, I had to try it. He was right, as usual!

Finibars is where it’s at!
