17. Energy bars
The majority of energy, protein, and granola bars are just candy bars by a different name. Many are loaded with sugar, and a surprising number contain more than 200 or 300 calories—with some up to 500! They also don’t quite satisfy hunger like a lean chicken dish or a hearty salad would for the same amount of calories. If you do like to grab a bar on the go, look for higher fiber and protein contents, 200 or fewer calories and less than 10 grams of sugar (less than five when possible!).
