"Get down into that Warrior2 Mr. Haas, this is YOGAX Ma-Brotha" -Tony Horton- YogaX
I talked before about my morning diet switching from Egg-whites to Power-bars. Well, a lot of people have been asking "How can you eat those things? They're gross!" Or at least something to that nature. I thought I'd give you my interpretation...
1. Powerbars are not CANDY bars. That means, you shouldn't expect them to taste like Snickers or 3Musketeers or Almond Joys. They are a nutritional supplement and should be compared to things like Protein Shakes, Slim-Fast, and other Nutritional Bars (luna, harvest, etc.). So once you understand that, yes, you'll likely accept that they aren't a dessert you'd find on a restaurant menu.
2. They come in many different flavors and most flavors are okay - but there are some stinkers out there. Because I have tried them all, let me give you a quick rundown of the choices and then I will rate them by taste(T -how does it taste in my mouth?) and repeatability(R -can you eat it day after day?) and perhaps an explanation of why they were rated that way. (10=best, 1=worst)
Honey Roast (6/10)- One of the better tasting bars, but too sweet to eat daily
Chocolate Brownie (5/10)- Has these strange brown crunches in it very dry needs water
Cookies'n'cream (3.5/10)- One of the worst tasting bars and most easily melted
Peanutbutter (8/10)- Most probably the best OVERALL taste is good and can eat it repeatedly
Oatmeal Raisin (7.5/10)- Delicious! Tastes like and oatmeal cookie but like the honey, its too sweet
Vanilla Crisp (5.5/10)- Decent taste, but it's the kind of flavor you can't have too much of
Berries (2.5/10)- By far the worst power bar invention to date. Stay away! You've been warned
Caramel Cookie (5/10)- Very sweet, but it's different enough that you could have it a couple times a week
Chocolate/Peanutbutter (7.5/10)- Take what's good from the peanut butter and add some chocolate, it's a safe bet.
Today is legs and back w/a backpack! YogaX was fine last night. I wasn't as excited about YogaX today as I was last week. Probably because I was just not into it. I'm getting better and stronger in the half-moon section of the moving part (first part). Gonna really dig deep this afternoon for legs + back.
