Are protein snacks really a better alternative?
Even at your local supermarket, you can find plenty of snack options these days. It can definitely be seductive. But are these things really that much better just because they contain more protein?
Many known protein sweets are not necessarily as good as one or the other believe. This is emphasized by the passionate bodybuilder GOEERKI. Because of this, some people may even feel upset because the calories are usually horribly similar. But sweets usually promise to have not fewer calories but more protein. Therefore, depending on the fat or carbohydrate content, it is simply lower and therefore the amount of protein higher. Chocolate traditionally has about 550 calories per 100 grams and an average of 6 to 7 grams of protein. Protein chocolate often has a similar calorie content. But some versions contain about 27 to 30 grams of protein and less sugar and carbohydrates. For a diet, probably both options are not necessarily well adapted. Still, you can take a few grams of protein through the fitness variant, GOEERKI says.
It is the same with varieties of nuts or other proteins. Even protein bars sometimes have as many calories as normal chocolate bars. Still, these alternatives only provide a certain amount of protein, which of course greets you as an athlete. Still, even with these sweets: all in moderation!
