Many people are looking to replace La Weight Loss bars with another brand of bar or a meal replacement. There are many popular substitute bars such as Luna, Balance Bar Trail Mix, Power Bar, Honey Stinger, CLIF Nectar, LaraBara and Bumble Bar, Pria and Go Lean. The cost of LAWL bars seems to be the main factor, but that can easily be overcome by buying your bars on eBay. But there is also a need for some variety and some people just can’t find a bar to their liking. So if you’re looking for a substitute, here are some alternatives. Just remember, by not eating the required 2 La Weight Loss Bars a day, you void the La Weight Loss Centers Money Back Guarantee.

If you feel you don’t need the bars, you can swap 2 equivalent bars for 1/2 protein, 1 vegetable, 1 fruit and 1 starch. Stay focused on increasing your vegetable intake while reducing processed flours and sugars.

If you’re looking for a bar replacement, look for a bar that has between 160 and 180 calories, 17 grams of carbohydrates, at least 8 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fat.

Luna bars are reported to be the closest to real LAWL bars in nutrition. Luna bars are considered by many to be a direct replacement for LA bars. So you eat two a day like you normally would with La Weight Loss bars. Luna bars in particular (unlike other protein/diet bar brands) are a good substitute because they are similar in calories (about 180) and protein (8-10 grams). Any bar that meets those two basic guidelines can be used.

There are many articles, threads, and posts about energy bars, but they all seem to be about snacking or how terrible energy bars are. It would seem that someone should be able to manufacture the equivalent of a healthy balanced meal replacement bar that tastes great. But, if you just want to take your mind off things, eat this twice-daily meal replacement that you don’t have to worry about, and lose weight, then it would be easier to buy La Weight Loss bars on eBay. The prices on eBay are as good or better than the cost of other bars and you’ll still be eligible for the money back guarantee offered by La Weight Loss Centers.
