    I gotta do SOMETHING though. Now that fall is here I'm hoping to get back out and do some fast walking. I refuse to walk in this humidity though. What kind of protein bars are good? They say fruit is just too much sugar, but man, it's got to be better than a Snickers....
    Know what you mean by wanting to just SLEEP.
    Does anybody nod off at work, you who work nights in home care?

    I was looking for something with 10-15 gm protein and <6gm fat. I was also looking for something that was <200 calories. The ones I like best are from I also like Muscle Milk Light bars.

    Be careful. Some of these protein bars are very fattening.

    At one time, Vitamin Shoppe had the Muscle Milk Light on sale for $15.99 for a small case of 20 bars or so. If there isn't a Vitamin Shoppe in your home town, I suppose you could order online from them. There are tons of these protein bars at these places but the majority of them are high in fat and calories because they contain upwards of 30 gm protein. Atkins makes a protein bar too. There are only a few that fall into the category that I like, but I can't remember what they are off the top of my head. I don't normally buy from them.

    Hmmm, my favorite. I like the strawberry cheesecake, the brownie one, and believe it or not, the peanut butter and jelly has been one of our favorites. I do like those Muscle Milk bars too.

    You must get off the sugar merry go round.
    Fresh fruit and veggies, eggs, cheese, fish, meat, nuts, dark chocolate, whole grains (not wheat!!)

    Once you've got the drug, I mean sugar out of your system, you won't have such terrible

    If you don't have time to pack a lunch, which you really should do most days, then order burgers, etc
