Granola Bars – Are they a big scam?

Granola bars are very deceiving. They are made with whole oats, which are both nutritious and high in fiber, so you would think that by eating them you would lose weight.

Unfortunately, they stick the oats together with sugar, in the form of high-fructose corn syrup, honey, and barley malt. As with pretzels, this can raise your blood sugar, which can increase hunger, not curb it.
If you must eat a bar, go for ones that are high in protein, and low in net carbs to minimize the impact on blood sugar levels.
