July 01, 2010Reviewer: Pat in Kentucky* Have only tried the Cocoa Chip flavor. I ate the bar, drank 8 oz. of water just like the directions said. Waited 30 minutes to eat meal....and I was so full I could not eat even a bite of the meal. Two hours afterward, still cannnot eat a bite. This is unreal for me. When hunger strikes ME, even two sandwiches doesn't touch it. I used to try the protein bars...so many different ones...in between meals to help 'curb' my appetite...but they just were a teaser...made me want to eat more and nothing has ever before made me feel actually full unless I could eat a huge meal. It looks like puffed wheat covered in chocolate and very chewy and the bar is very large. You would think a rice cake would do the same thing, but it does not work. This really, really works. I can't believe it actually makes ME, of all people, too FULL to eat a bite of anything. A very strange and rare thing....I am known for sitting around eating an entire pie at once. So...for this to make me full is some kind of miracle. Whenever I get hungry, i am just going to eat one of these...but beware...you won't be able to eat a meal...so I am thinking...maybe eat breakfast and lunch and supper and if the hungrys attack you....this is a sure thing to stop them. I can't eat a bite of anything even if i HAD to. So very unusual.
