OK SO I too was into these bars for a little while. I had a Quest bar stint if you will. If you tolerate whey isolate, the bars are (in my opinion) a harmless and satisfyingly chewy way to get a punch of protein when you don't have a steak dinner... (more)

You supposed to take them both, since they compliment each other. I have problems with fish oil so I am going to buy them separately, even though it will cost more. If I react to cod liver oil, then I will just take butter oil for vitamin K. I... (more)

Ditch the scale, it's only causing you stress. Take pictures and measurements and stop worrying about a number that is completely meaningless.

Your blood sugar goes so high because you wait so long to eat and adrenalin/cortisol goes high to break down your glycogen or muscle tissue(if glycogen is low). Eat more frequently and you should have more stable numbers.
