I have been eating powerbars thinking that it would be a meal replacement but instead of the scale going down it went up. Now I did lift weight this week and didnt do any cardio. But my question is should I eat a energy bar to replace dinner of is it okay to eat late. I work out after my kids go to bed. So I will be working out at least 4 time a week. Any advice will help.
I've read from more than one source that studies have show the "don't eat after xx:xx" to be a myth. The total number of calories per day is what counts.
Personally, I like to eat food. I suppose if you're late for work or something a powerbar would be OK--better than skipping breakfast anyway. Otherwise, I'd pass on them.
In any case, if you do your exercise, log your food intake and stick with it, I know you'll succeed!
