The Hidden Truth About 'Nutrition' Bars

Most of us would choose a nutrition bar over a candy bar if we're trying to be healthy. We accept that nutrition bars are better for us without giving it a second thought or even reading the label. In a recent study by Germany's Munich Technical University, groups of people were given two snacks which had the exact same nutritional value and were told to eat them over a course of a few weeks. One was labeled 'healthy' and for 'fitness', while the other was made to look more like a candy bar. The people who ate the healthy fitness bar actually began exercising less as they related consuming this bar to the equivalent of working out. protein-bars1 The scary reality about the food industry is that there are no regulations on how to properly label and advertise nutrition bars, so companies can pump any ingredients they want into one and call it 'good for you'. Most 'sports' supplements and foods are very high in carbs and sugars, and not very effective at making you a better athlete. As the study above revealed, these products can actually be dangerous to someone's health as they cause an increase in eating and a decrease in physical activity. What are your thoughts?
