What You Should Know
The Penny Protein Plan is advertised by the No Crave Diet. It is a line of protein and healthy treats that promote satiety. The dieter who feels hungry is the dieter who gains weight. The treats are created by a naturopathic doctor with a specialty in natural medicine. The product line for the Penny Protein Plan contains only one product at this time – the Chocolate Chip Oat Square, but there are plans to add new flavors in the future.

Each bar on the Penny Protein Plan contains 280 calories. The bar is extremely small, so we were a bit surprised by the calorie totals. Looking at the ingredient list we have no idea how this bar is considered a weight loss product. The first ingredient is butter with sugar, molasses and semi-sweet chocolate also appearing on the list. These are ingredients used in a traditional chocolate chip cookie, not a weight loss product.
The product description claims there are 18 grams of protein per serving, which is correct, but it fails to note the 37 grams of carbohydrates and 21 grams of sugar. Dieters do not need to consume high amounts of sugar as it can cause a rise and fall in blood glucose, which leads to hunger and cravings for more sugar.
The bars are sold in stores at this time. We could not find a place to order the Penny Protein Plan bars so we have no idea how much each bar costs. The dieter could spend less eating healthy foods low in sugar and high in fiber.
- The Penny Protein Plan supports healthy protein and fiber.
- The bars are part of the No Crave Diet.
- Dieters may not feel any less hungry after eating 21 grams of sugar.
- We could not find the Penny Protein Plan bar for sale online.
- There is only one flavor.
The Penny Protein Plan has everything figured out in terms of selling bars and the idea of losing weight with a high protein, high fiber meal replacement bar, but the company only has one flavor. This is not ideal because some dieters may not like the taste of chocolate. There are 21 grams of sugar in each bar. This is much more than any dieter should consume during a meal packed with butter and flour. The total carbohydrates are 37.
