Fullbar is a diet supplement created by Dr. Snyder, a general surgeon who has performed more than 1500 bariatric surgeries according to the Fullbar website. After working with many patients with significant weight issues Dr. Snyder decided he wanted to do something for those who wanted to lose weight without surgical procedures. The Fullbar program parallels surgery in that it fills up the stomach so that dieters eat less at meals. According to Dr. Snyder, “When you feel full, you eat less. When you eat less, you lose weight”.

The Fullbar is a snack bar that is designed to be eaten 30 minutes before meals twice a day. The bars consist of basic food ingredient and do not include any effective appetite suppressants or fat burners. Flavors include Cranberry Almond, Cocoa Chip, Caramel Apple Crisp, Peanut Butter Crunch, Fresh Berry Bliss, and Zesty Lemon Lime. While the product website includes testimonials from satisfied customers there are other diet blogs that include customers who did not see positive results from this product.

List of Ingredients

All of the Fullbar products contain wheat, soy, and an assortment of other food ingredients based on the flavor. They are not recommended for those with peanut allergies since they are manufactured in a plant that processes peanuts and peanut products. Some of the bars are dairy-free for those on special dietary restrictions. The bars contain a significant amount of fiber and carbohydrates but do not include sufficient nutrients to substitute them for a meal. Calories for the bars range from 150 to 180.

Product Features

We are pleased to see that Fullbar offers a 30-day money back guarantee on purchases. There are also discounts for bulk purchases and a two-week free trial available. Customers who choose to sign up for the auto ship program will receive a discount on purchases. The product itself is quite expensive, running $100 or more for a monthly supply at the time of this review.

Advantages

  • The products come with a money back guarantee.
  • There are a variety of flavors to choose from.
  • Discounts are available on purchases.

Disadvantages

  • Fullbar does not contain any proven diet ingredients.
  • The products are expensive.
  • Some of the feedback on this product has been negative.

Conclusion

While we like the fact that this company provides a refund policy and discounts on products we are not convinced that this is the best path to weigh loss. We recommend that consumers look for weight loss supplements that contain proven ingredients for appetite suppression and fat burning for best results.

    I did try fullbar in the morning and had two glasses of water…I’m sitting here and still hungry. Frankly I need to go back to eating an apple and drink a glass of water…that really makes me feel full … and cheaper. That’s great if it works for some people–so I’m not knocking it. What works for some may not work for others.

    first of all this is supposed to be a site for people to comment on full bar, so all of you who are just here to bash people who might not be able to lose weight by exercise and eating changes alone -GET LOST! It would be nice to come on here to see how well the product works. And to the reviewers that have been helpful with all of my questions and concerns-Thank You !!! I have gained weight from not being able to exercise and being stuck on medications due to a severe car accident i was in. It is nice to see that there might be something that is all natural that might be able to help me !!

    I bought two fullbars at the store just to try them. I did just what the package said to do with the first bar I me hash browns and 1 or 2 eggs…I never got full. So I did the same with the second bar but drunk two cups of water and ate a more food to see if I get full,and still nothing…People said I dnt eat that much so that probly why there didnt work for me.

    I had a full bar 15 min b4 dinner around 5pm. I ate 1/3 less than I ate of the same identical dinner yesterday without the full bar. Plus, it’s 10pm, and I have not eaten another thing all evening. Kept me full. I will keep buying this product for sure.

    I bought 3 boxes of Full bars hoping that they would help me lose weight. They only made me hungrier and I had to fight off even more temptations to eat between meals. I paid $8.50 for each box of 12 bars, total of $25.50. Is there any way to get some or all of my money back?
    I’m pre-diabetic and my A1c level went up while eating these bars, probably because they made me so hungry. I really want to lose weight but these definitely did not help.
    Thank you for any help or money you can refund.

    well to start, i weigh about 300lbs and have barely started eating fullbars and let me tell you they work! i cant say i expect to lose all 150+lbs on just the fullbar method but i can say that they will definitely help. if you use it as it states it defintely works. they have less carbs than a cup of fruited yogurt and the sodium is within the lowsodium guidlines. (ive researched) anyway i feel full after my meal and eat significantly less. the best part is that i didnt need to snack in between like with the slimfast diet..i recommend this to everyone! i will repost in a cpl weeks to update my weightloss! after 1 week its now 5lbs lost..lets see how many more come off!

    Ive been using the full bars for a few months now as well as another diet. I use the full bars when I feel like snacking instead of thirty minutes before meals. It stops my cravings and keeps me full. Ive been losing weight. The fullbars shouldnt be used as the single variable in a weight loss regime. I recommend it to people in order to stop snacking and craving.

    You can also eat 2 apples and that will give 10 gm of fiber at 100 calories (vs. 170 fullbar) it will curb your appetite just as much.
    Now having said that I use fullbar for occasional breakfast replacement.

    I just tried the Full Bar while shopping at Walgreens to get me through till lunch. I ate it and thought, ‘This won’t fill me up’ because I was hungry! I also drank about half a bottle of water with it. I was all set to go to lunch a half hour later, and I wasn’t hungry for regular food! It worked! I felt completely full. I got a small hardboiled egg for nutrition and a coffee. So, I think this actually works. Of course people need to use their nutritional sense with it too.

    So today I went to the doctor, and they told me I was pre-diabetic. I’m pretty much desperate to lose weight.

    The only problem that I have is that I’m only seventeen. I also play sports, and that helps, but I have a problem with eating too much. So I’m just wondering, is it still safe for me to try? Please, give me any advice/feedback.

    The bar makes me feel full and I take it with 16 – 20 oz. of water but it constipates me so bad… it feels like concrete in my intestines and I drink a lot of water during he day. I find it also dehydrates my skin really bad–it seems to pull the water out of the rest of my body and my facial skin looks much older and crinkly, especially around the eyes. It isn’t worth it and I didn’t lose any weight.

    I am overweight & I have a serious heart condition. I just got diagnosed with diabetes recently. I have been modifying my diet (cutting carbs & junk my body does not need)and walking daily. Except with the cutback in food, I do tend to feel “snacky” after dinner & I don’t want to trash the good day I put in with succumbing to an attack of the munchies.

    So I decided to try Full Bar. Mainly because it is all natural & it comes from the mind of a real doctor. I bought the bars from WalMart. I got 4 bars for $5.83. Yes, for almost $1.50 per bar it is a little pricey. However, I just had my first Full Bar with over 16 oz of water…halfway through eating the bar & drinking the water, I started to get full. By the time I finished the bar & reached for the rest of my water, I was fuller yet. It’s now just 20 minutes past eating the bar & drinking a bunch of water and I seriously do not know how I could eat a meal let alone another small snack!

    I think they work differently for everyone. I read all the comments here & people need to realize that everyone’s body works differently. For those that it works for, congrats and keep on fighting.

    Glad I read everyone’s reviews first. Thanks! Thought this was going to be the equivalent of a (healthy) meal replacement bar. Heck, I eat Kashi Bars: much healthier (the first ingredients are whole grains, not a sugar subst. like br. rice syrup!), but otherwise similar: 140 kcals, 4 g fiber, 7g protein, 19 g carbs (fiber 4g, sugars 5g), and a much healthier 5 g of fat (more filling.) Natural & taste good. I like PB and the Berry Nut Bar(?). Cost: ~$4 ($3.75 on sale) for 6. I keep them in my backpack in case I don’t have food handy, and eat 2-3 if I need to for a meal replacement:( I skip meals a lot :( (( Very unhealthy hold-over diet habit. I have “dieted up” from 120 to 313 lbs. :( over 33 years. I finally stopped gaining ~5 years ago when I stopped skipping both breakfast & lunch (now on good days I only skip one of those, then eat too much for dinner and afterward.) However, what I eat at night now is mostly meal foods, whereas when I skipped both breakf. & lunch, I’d be so low-blood sugar I’d be inhaling choc. bars & ice cream late into the night :(
    Now I am not as starved and eat cereal & soymilk, or leftovers, sandwiches, etc.

    Re: Fullbar, here’s my concern, after the heads up from so many on here. 140 kcals is not meaningful for those of us who skip, undereat breakfast, or delay meals, as a meal replacement, or to reduce calorie intake.

    If they were 550 -700 kcals, yes, they could be a meal replacement and help grab something healthy instead of McD’s, choc, etc. Moderately active women need ~2200 kcals/day. Sedentary women, ~1600 kcals/day (but I aim for 2200/day, or 700 per meal 3x/day, and use that extra energy to boost me to feel like exercising or being more active!)

    The Fullbar inventor/surgeon says these work on the same principle as lap-band surgery. Well, there’s one fatal flaw in that plan: gastric bypass and lap-bands do not work long-term! Eventually the weight returns for most (or the client dies of complications: check out the many, many horror stories on the Yahoo group about this, espec. bypass.) That is because the body cannot tolerate undereating! It is not healthy. The surgeon is well-intended but absolutely wrong: undereating does NOT cause sustained weight loss (or for some of us, any wt. loss.) The body rebels and begins STORING weight more easily, as fat, dips into very low-blood sugar states between low-cal meals, and becomes FAMISHED for high-cal sugars and fats: so we will EAT enough, rapidly, for survival. This is make-up eating, typically late in the day, after dieting (undereating) for breakfast and lunch. No high-fiber, low-cal eating will fool our bodies into needing fewer kcals, starches & fats. We need enough kcals, folks. ~2200/day for women, ~2500/day for men. One can’t just arbitrarily cut out 500 kcals/day as the docs recommend to lose an arbitrary (and super-*unhealthy*(!) 1 lb./week): it plays havoc with all sorts of systems in the body: blood sugar, pancreas, adrenals, cortisol, hormones, mood, etc. Sedentary (but ambulatory) women need at least 1400 kcals/day just to maintain normal function of the brain and other organs. No wonder our bodies scream for food when we cut back even a small amount: long before we get so low our brains don’t function properly! I think the most intelligent advice on the web is from Jean Antonello, RN and nutritionist (and no, I don’t work for her!). Read all the articles on her site to understand how undereating (dieting) CAUSES weight gain. And why eating ENOUGH, of normal meal foods (not diet foods), according to hunger cues, is necessary to maintain or lose weight. It’s the complete opposite of what the docs & CDC tell us. And to read it, it makes total sense. I finally stopped gaining when I started eating more: not enough more, but somewhat more. I cannot attest for her claim that one will LOSE weight eating as she advises: eating regular meal foods at the first sign of hunger, until truly full, all day every day (her books have her lists of “Real” foods: order her books from the library, first:) . The food lists are just normal meal foods: grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy, butter, pb, fruits, vegs, etc. Sugary sweets ~1-2x/month, after one has filled up on regular meal foods first. This helped me to shift to getting my calorie and sweeet fix from regular meals (I now eat lots of sandwiches, cereals, lean stews, chick & br. rice, etc.) Eating when hungry til truly full, of meal foods, greatly reduces or eliminates cravings for sweets & high-fat, low-nutrition “junk” foods. (If someone is craving junk or sugar, it is a sign of undereating.) Eating enough meal foods all day ends the undereat/overeat cycle, or starve/binge cycle, and reduces mood swings, depression, anxiety, and night-eating.

    Now if Fullbar started making a healthy meal-replacement bar at 700 kcals/bar, with ~25 g of healthy fats/bar(ahem w/o sugar subst. as one of the top half-dozen ingredients), I would gladly buy those to ensure I eat healthily–and ENOUGH per meal–on the go. Preferably w/dried fruit & vegs in the bar, which I’d supplement w/ a piece of fruit and a carrot or grab & go salad.

    How ’bout it, Fullbar inventor?! (Pls. read all the articles at Jean’s site!)

    Thanks.

    I disagree, My mother had gastric bypass back in 2004 she had an enlarged heart and only had a year or two to live. Her surgery has been successful, her heart is fine and she doesn’t eat very much but yet again she isn’t aloud to drink carbonated beverages, on that note she drinks tea and lots of water, makes little snack packs but its all a mental thing you have to have the will power to do something, I skip meals all the time its not bad for you, I fast 3 days a week and drink mainly smoothies and high protein foods. I feel great im healthy i work out and i have 2 children. I like the more natural root, people need to cut out all the sugars, processed food, and carbonated drinks(which make your stomach expand), then you feel great you skin will look great and you will live lighter. I do and people are different because they say they are different god made us all the same its how we interpret or go about our lives that make it difficult. Its all about will power and motivation.

    Just had my first full bar yesterday. I was immediately nauseated, stomach making all kinds of noises and eating anything else was the last thing I wanted to do. I think the taste is terrible no matter the flavor, like stale puffed sticky wheat. I’m diabetic, heart disease, asthma, etc. etc, and just hit 394 pounds at 5’1″. This may work, I don’t know. I’ve got lifetime memberships with Jenny Craig, weight watchers, been on TV with Richard Simmons more than once,NutriSystem, 6 week body make-over, slim fast, cabbage diet, etc., and NOTHING has stopped me from stuffing my face. But this has made my stomach so upset that I can’t think about eating. Don’t know if you’d call that a pro or con. I just know that as 49 1/2 and as a former nurse, I’ve decided I want to live. I do not want to have gastric by-pass. And yes, I grew up being raped and molested and chained to the kitchen table to sleep at night so I’m sure that is a big factor as up until I was 5 you could see through my hand I was so thin. Not trying to make excuses, I’ve been the therapy route for decades. It is my responsibily to take care of myself and stop blaming others. I pray that this works.

    I starting my 1st bar tomorrow..I decided that starting on a Monday is too tough! Everytime Ive started a diet on a Monday I have failed. I have also tried many different diet (Never the Rich Simmons thou) was and I had a rough childhood that has manifested itself into my adulthood and I so want to take charge of my life once and for all. I bought 12 bars for the local grocer and decided that I will follow the plan to the hilt this week and see where I am by next tuesday. I wish much luck DJ and I will be rooting for you.

    Hi DJ,
    I wish you lots of luck. Surely ANY diet product or any change of eating habit or system might be felt as a change to your metabolism. Maybe we have EXTRA gas, or extra bloating, or extra “badness” to clean out or get rid of. I think we might feel nausea and hear more stomach activity due to our extra size. And that feeling alone makes me think that something is defenitely working. Oh well, it’s a different feeling, but a cleansing one. Good luck.

    I bought a box of fullbars today at Costco (15 for $15.97)Not a bad price in my book. Anyway, I have never tried them but will begin tomorrow. If it works great! If not then, I’ll know not to purchase this product again. I tried other weight loss plans (such as Nutri System, 6 week body makeover, Slim-Fast, weight loss supplements)and nothing worked.It’s a chance I am willing to take.

    I’m starting my second week of using the Full Bars,& I’ve lost 7 lbs.However,I have altered the steps to suit my needs.I eat one bar at lunch & drink 20oz of water with it.I have been full enough off of that to not need to eat more of a meal.I do not use the Full Bar at supper, but just try to eat sensibly.I do believe the Full Bars work wonders as I’ve battled with my weight my whole life.9 yrs ago,I lost 105 lbs over a three yr span just by incresing my movement & cutting way back on calories.The problem is, I was ALWAYS starving,& very irritable as a result.The Full Bar has helped me cut down on calories, without having that always hungry feeling.

    ive been on the fullbar diet supplement and it works inredibley. the reason it works(im pretty sure but this might not be the case) is because it contains ingredients that will expand in your stomache like Puffed Wheat. the reason that it expands only in your stomache is simple; it absorbs the water and other fluid in your stomache like a sponge.(sorry to be gross but its the truth) its the same reason your cereal expands in milk if you leave it out to long.thats why the website recomends drinking 16oz of water or aquafull with it.

    So I tried my first full bar this morning, and all I could think about bite after bite was what can I do to make it taste better. blahhhh I was tempted to whip up some frosting to give it some flavor. I don’t think this will work for me, I might feel full, but I don’t think I can eat this twice a day without smothering it in something not healthy.

    By all means, it’s no miracle. And YES, you can just eat an apple or cereal or something with fiber and water and get the same result. But for me, it really helped with the cravings as well as being a little fuller. I got the Cocoa Chip & thought it tasted pretty good -after eating one of these, I don’t feel like I need to eat cookies, which saves calories and fat (although it is high in carbs, but so is the junk that we eat)! After an apple, I might still crave cookies though (even if not that hungry). So, I’d say give them a try and see what it does for you -every person is different.

    This is a great way to hold you over. I use the full bites as a snack and like that they only have 150 calories with 8g protein and 5g fiber. It’s hard to get that much protein in fiber in a snack that gives me the crunch I’m looking for. I totally recommend it.

    I found the full bars on sale at Walgreens buy one get one half off. So thought I would try them. Had one for lunch with water, about 2 hours later had extreme gas, bloating, then diarrhea horrible. I am talking for the next 12 hours living in the bathroom. Missed a day of work, next day felt horrible, stomache very weak. I am going to take these back to Walgreens and try to get my money back. I was miserable! Exercise is much easier!!

    I just bought a fullbar to examine and try. I am not a diet-er but was just intigued with the idea. I drink much water, I love fruits and veggies and seem to have found that eatting a lovely salad with each meal helps to curb my apitite for the main portion of my meal AND the salad that is ussually made with the rainbow of vegs. fills me up better than the full bar. Interesting product. I would suggest eatting a nice salad and drinking a glass of water before your main meal.

    I just started using fullbars about a week ago. Like a lot of posters, I didnt feel any different the first time I ate a bar, but the next day and every day after that, the bars have been making me full. I guess something about the bars doesnt work on the very first day you use it? All I know is that they work now–I’m sitting here full as a tick after a fullbar, 8oz Boost shake and a few sips of water.

    I started eating the bars 4 days ago. i am one of those people who eat even when they’re not hungry. But the fullbars have helped me cut the cravings. the dr who made this did not say it was a miracle drug. it is something to help you consume less calories. If people are honest with themselves, the true way to way loss is lifestyle change, and that’s what the bars do, help you consume less. but you have to control you’re cravings. people are not always HUNGRY, some people eat out of habit.

    Doesn’t work for me. Won’t work if you are the type of person who can eat past full. Hmmmmm…..most overeaters! Cost way too much for what you get. Also the product is inconsistent in size from bar to bar. You’d be better off buying a bar with more nutrition or having puffed cereal and milk 20 minutes before your 2 largest meals.

    I tried the Fullbar in an attempt to ease my way out of large portions and late night eating. Last evening was the first time eating the bar and it was successful for me insofar as I did eat less for dinner and had a full feeling in the late pm, when I am usually tempted to eat. I was able to walk away from the usual pattern of late night eating, so just with that I am happy.
    So far the product works for me with no after effects like some people have mentioned.

    My sister and I started eating the Fullbars about a month ago. A bazaar side effect occurred for both of us. A week ago during her period my sister experienced severe pain in her buttock and stretching into the back of her leg (to the back of the knee). Sounds like sciatica or piriformis we both thought. It lasted for about 3 days. Then this week the exact same thing happened to me-also during my period. Niether of us had ever suffered from this. It was/is extremely debilitating, and the symptoms were the same for each of us. we began trying to figure out what we ate because our gut instinct was that it was bowel/food related. We are both generally healthy eaters & regular but low impact exercisers. What are the chances that we both would experience such a severe set of symptoms out of the blue?(we spent several days comparing activities / foods/etc before figuring out what it had to be.) There is no doubt it had to be the fullbars! Nothing else was different, and neither of us had anything else that matched up. Watch out ladies… this stuff may not be the ‘zero side effect’ product it claims to be. My neighbour, who is a nurse, suggested that since Fullbar is so dependent on being combined with water (and piriformis can result from dehydration issues) that people should be warned – it can drain your system. It is probably prudent to consider that you will need much more than the recommended amounts of water for this product… if you want to chance it. (I drink a lot of water every day.)

    i tried fullbar. i thought the money back guarantee was great, no loss, except the cost of shipping. i was excited wheni got it, pictured myself think and hoped it would work for me. it didn’t. and i agree, it is no more than puffed wheat.
    i called to return it, got the return number, and within 2 days, sent it back. it cost $27 to return it! i kept checking for my refund, and today, 28 days after sending it back, called. they said my package was refused because of the date they received it. i was beside myself! the person on the phone said no problem, i would get a refund. so this is a warning, if you try it, and i does not work, and you send it back, check for your refund or you won’t get it!

    really no point in buying this bar – I believe you can have the same effect of “feeling full” by eating an apple and drinking a glass of water .30mins before a meal. The science has proven that it takes .30mins for your stomach to tell your brain “I’m full” or “I’m hungry”. There is nothing about this bar that makes it special. For most to loose weight they have to increase activity, decrease calories and maintain healthy eating habits.

    I have been using Full Bar for a week now and I don’t think it works. I believe it’s all in your mind. They are very costly and there are other things out there to eat and loose weigh without wasting so much money!

    OK, I just ate my first Full Bar and a large glass of water. I waited 30 minutes and then ate my usual portion of one cup of pasta and 2 cups stir fried veggies. I do not feel ANY different then usual, after eating the meal. As a matter of fact, I’m ready for seconds…but know better! Should I try again tomorrow?

    If you really want to lose weight then you might have to try many different diets. I have been eating Fullbars for about two weeks. I do feel full most of the time. I am trying to follow all the instructions that are on the website. It’s not just eating the bar and drinking water. It’s about changing your way of thinking about food. How much do you really need to eat to be satisfied with a meal? Eat the Bar or Bites and drink the water, wait. Put less food on your plate and then stop. Are you still hungry? Change the mind and the body will change too.

    Just a thought.

    I agree with you, Cathie. My mother and father are 500 and 375lbs, respectively and I was headed down a dangerous path thinking that I had zero control because of my DNA.
    One day, I was looking over a lap-band site and considering the procedure and something just clicked. I quit eating crap all the time, reduced my calorie intake to 1200/day (perfectly healthy, by each of my doctor’s standards) and got off of my butt. I was 265 pounds when my son was born and I wanted to be a healthy, active mom who set the right example for him. He’s 4 now and I’m 160lbs and still losing.
    I bought one of these bars today to try it out because I had heard so many great things about them and hopped on here to read the reviews. The ugly responses to yours really got to me.
    As someone who has personally struggled with weight problems and poor exampled with regard to eating habits and relationships with food my ENTIRE life, I can say that you are EXACTLY right!
    We all need to stop dieting and change our lifestyles. I’ve stopped buying pre-packaged foods, stopped dieting and started eating right and being active. The more I workout and eat right, the less my body wants or thinks it “needs” the crap that I was putting into it before.

    Here’s why full bar is a waste of money. Full bar ranges from 150-180 calories–that’s the equivalent of a full serving (1/2 cup) of oatmeal or a bowl of cereal with milk. If someone said that you would eat less by having a bowl of cereal 30 minutes before dinner (and then chugging a glass of water), of course you’d believe them! Full bar won’t trick you into consuming less calories, especially if you are the type of person who eats when they aren’t hungry! At best, you may consume less calories from your designated “meal.” Ultimately you are likely to consume the same amount of food you normally eat.

    A truly effective weight loss plan requires exercise and a change of diet. You have to learn to eat the right kinds of things (in the right kinds of quantities) so that you have hunger satisfaction longer. At $2 a bar, full bar is nothing more than expensive filler. We need to stop looking for easy weight-loss solutions and realize that it takes work!

    [Reply]

    FNP

    I disagree that a truly effective weight loss plan requires exercise. While exercise is HIGHLY recommended and necessary for overall health, WEIGHT LOSS is not hinged it by any means. I have plenty of patients who are far too obese to exert themselves exercising, yet lose MANY MANY pounds of fat by simply going on calorie restricted diets. Bariatric surgery (gastric banding) works off of that SOLE principle. SO, even if you can’t find the time or energy to initially incorporate more exercise, SIMPLY EATING LESS still works and always will.

    As I mentioned above, Fullbar IS worth the money if it helps you, as an individual, reduce the number of calories you consume in a day.

    I appreciate the fact that you mentioned that not all people are able to do much exercise. I have a bad back that hurts terribly when simply sweeping the floor. That, and after years of un-medicated depression (lack of money to get my script for Pristiq) I have been very immobile. I’m afraid to do cardio or take off walking for an hour. I know I need to start slow, but if I could loose about 20-30 lbs, I’d feel safer exercising. Many people look at it as just being too lazy. As you said, it’s not always an option. I have heart pains at times of exersion and pounding heart beat. I also can’t get mediaid (in AR) to be checked for heart problems. Thank you for the understanding comment. Cheryl

    Lack of health care in this country for so many low income people and the low cost of crap food are such a big reason for the obesity problems. When PE classes are being droped from schools on top of it, this country has no chance of stopping this epidemic.

    I agree that the full bar does not work for everyone.They did work for me because I overeat whether I am hungry or not. In fact I liked the taste of the bars so much that I ate an entire box in a day and I did not reduce my normal food consumption.

    No. Because it does not have all the nutrients your body needs. And the directions instruct you to eat one 30 min before meals… Its to help you eat less not fill you up as a meal replacement

    aim2bhealthy

    I would add a piece of fresh fruit and a multivitamin to a full bar and call it a meal, though the protien ration would be a little low it’s still a lot more nutrition than most students get. I remember college and trying to eat healthy and avoid the freshman 15. It’s a challenge but totally possible. The upside is this mini meal would pack at least 6 grams of fiber no matter what fruit you choose, and that should help you feel satisfied for a good amount of time. Also, it would only come out to about 300 calories all together depending on the full bar and fruit (ie, med banana=110cal, large apple=110cal, large orange=85cal). Good luck, and don’t skip meals.

    [Reply]

    FNP

    I think the Fullbar can definitely have its place in a weight-loss endeavor. However you must keep in mind that the end goal is that you eat fewer calories in a day. Period. Regardless of exercise, regardless of WHAT you eat, if you are not consuming fewer calories each day, then you will not lose weight. There’s no magic pill or workout plan. SO, whatever tool helps you accomplish this goal of consuming fewer calories is a KEEPER!

    The goal is not just to eat fewer calories but to burn more calories than you consume. And excercise definitely makes a difference Just eating fewer calories and not paying attention to needed nutrients and getting enough excercise can help you lose weight and be very unhealthy. If you just want to lose weight why don’t you just become anorexic.

    It would depend on the amount of fiber you intake on a daily basis.. an average adult should consume 25-35 grams a day. So 4 g should not be enough.. unless you are sensitive to another ingredient

    [Reply]

    aim2bhealthy

    If you don’t often consume much fiber the 8 grams gained from 2 full bars might loosen you up so to speak. But, on average that’s really not much fiber. Perhaps something else in the bars got to you, or maybe you ate something else that didn’t set right…

    This product is “safe,” yes, but I would recommend starting with half a bar and a full glass of water and waiting to see how that makes you feel. I am at a normal healthy weight but “tested” the bars before recommending them to my patients, and I find that an entire bar made me feel FAR TOO FULL to even imagine eating, even an hour later! The contents definitely take up space!

    I think you need to re-read FNPs original post.

    Anyway – I found them at an outlet store yesterday, and took one of each flavor home to see how they taste and work.
    Let me tell you, I’ve had one “on the go” at around 10AM with about 16oz of water (and some more later). It’s now 1:30PM and I am still full. I can’t see eating anything after consuming one of these bars.
    So for me, they are definitely great as I am a notorious “graser”. I could lose about 30 pounds.
    This will help me provide a nice kick start + exercise. It should be alright.
    Having that said. I read somewhere that they charge you $50 for a box of 24??
    I found them sold individually for .79 and they will give you a 10% discount if you buy a whole box.
    Flavor – neh nothing I’d write home about, but also not horrible.
    Good luck everyone!

    can a diabetic use fullbar?

    [Reply]

    FNP

    Fullbar is not a low-sugar product. The Peanut Butter Crunch, for example, contains 27g of carbs and 9g of sugar in the form of brown rice syrup and agave. However, this can be factored into your diet like any other food with the same content. If you are on insulin, you would simply make the necessary adjustments to your dosage according to your physician’s sliding scale orders. If you are only on oral hypoglycemics, make a note of the sugar content and place it wisely in your overall calculations for your daily glycemic intake.

    Fullbar is just puffed wheat . You can buy puffed wheat in your local food store, it’s a cereal . I took a part of the fullbar and put it into a cup of water . It has not changed . It has been in the water for a few hours now and still no change . Puffed wheat will not puff up any more , it is already puffed to the max . It’s a big rip off .

    I’m at a loss as to what Debbie’s point is. The manufacturer doesn’t claim that fullbars puff up in your stomach, so how is it a ripoff? The claim is simply that they give you a full feeling, presumably because of the high fiber content.

    I bought full Bars from the web site and when I got them they were out of date. when I called customer service about them I was told that they were just clearing out some of their old stock. They said I could send them back on my $ but would most likely get the same ones back.
    I will never buy anything from this company again. They did not even offer to discount the price. I
    paid full price for something that a food bank would not except because it is out of date. So if you want to buy FullBar
    DON’T BUY FROM THE WEB SITE, ONLY BUY FROM A STORE WHERE YOU CAN READ THE “USE BY DATE.”
    Better yet save your money. A company who operates like this should not be in business anyway.

    I am type2 diabetic, though the bars do have sugar, it is a natural suager, the glycemic inpact of the “bars” is the same as a med apple. Today was my first day trying the full bars, when I tested my bld 2hrs after a meal my bld sugar level was in line where it should be. As for making me feel full, it DID make me feel full. I ate about 60 to 70% the amount of food at dinner that I would of normally eaten. So, at the end of day one I give it 2 thumbs up, I will repost in a week to update my feelings of this product.
