Bars V Shakes - thoughts?

Just wondering people’s preferences? I started in August using shakes to break my fast (I follow and intermittent fasting diet) - then I started to replace lunch with shakes as well. Now over the last few weeks this has shifted in favour of bars to the point where I could now replace all meals, a few days a week, with bars - just having the odd shake.
Just wondering what other people do? Do you think it makes any difference?

I like and use both! Sometimes I drink a shake, sometimes I eat a bar. Just depends on what my mood is for the day

Personally, my favorites are the Plenny Drink & Plenny Pot. The sheer convenience is unparalleled! (although I might be somewhat biased, of course😉)

Shakes only, as I have an allergy against nuts and prefer sweet flavours.

Look at the nutritional facts
Powders are way healthier, bars are really sugar rich

Sure the bars have more sugar, but with less than 7 grams per 100 grams I wouldn’t say they are ‘rich’ in sugar!


I combine the two. Usually for meals I eat the shakes, can be found in my kitchen but whenever I feel like a snack, I grab a few bites of a plenny bar.

The bars I keep next to an arcade console in my game room so they are always at hand. I really like the shopping display style box the bars ship in and they just scream eat-me whilst playing Pacman or Galaga. :joystick:

In my opinion both are healthy, much better than munching on crisps or a mars bar so shakes for meals, bars for snacking.

In general I prefer the shake but I think bars are easier to take with me when I’m going somewhere (like on a hike).
