Bars are a convenient way of meeting your daily protein and carbohydrate requirements. Due to their active lifestyle, athletes have higher protein and carbohydrate needs compared to sedentary people. Intense workouts must be followed by a solid nutrition plan in order to sustain muscle gains.

 

Protein bars

 

Exercise induces microtraumas to the muscle fibers. They need an adequate supply of protein in order to recover properly. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, bodybuilders should aim to consume between 1,2 g to 1,4 g of protein per kg of body weight (*1). 

The body's protein demands rise a little bit for endurance athletes. If this is your case, you should have between 1,4 g to 1,7 g of protein per kg of body weight. 

 

Energy bars

 

Maintaining proper energy levels is key to athletic performance.Athletes need appropriate carbohydrate consumption throughout the day to fill muscle glycogen stores as glycogen is the body's main energy source and will be used to sustain physical activity. 

Informed athletes always travel with portable high-carbohydrate food sources to have anytime on-the-go. Energy bars are one of the most portable energy sources consumed by athletes all over the world as they contain a hefty dose of the best fast-acting carbohydrates available.

The main carbohydrate sources generally found on energy bars are fructose, maltodextrin, dextrose and medium-chain triglycerides.
