View Full Version : Raw Crunch Bars (Fitness bars)
11-05-2006, 02:04 PM
Hi, I wasn't sure were to post this thread, but it was more about fitness so I thought this fitness board would be the best place to post it!
I'm looking for more energy because I think I'm not eating enough and I'm eating every bit that I can eat! So I did a search on raw fitness model. I got one about Kathy Feldman and she makes raw cruch bars and they sound good! I was wondering if anyone here has tried them and if so, how much did they help you? Does anyone know what's in them? Plus I thought they would be great because you could always keep some on hand if your on the go or can't get to the healthy foods when your hungry! Here where I live your luck to find a salad, it's just mostly meat, cheese & fried foods! Which I don't want!
I'm wanting to get a really fit and toned body and I'm finding out that maybe I just need some more nuts & seeds & dried fruits in my diet because actually I don't eat, but a little seeds in my salad. Plus how it gives you lost more nutrients that you need for building a good toned body and she also talks how those boost her energy and that's sure what I need! www.kathyfeldman.com/store.html
Can anyone give me any info? Thanks in advance and have a great raw day!

I'm sorry I didn't realize that Alissa sales those bars! I know now what's in them, but I would still like to know how good they taste and are for fitness! They sound really good, but I still would like to hear that from someone that's tried them! I hope they are that good for energy because I sure need it so I can start working harder to reach my goal and not loose it!
Thanks again in advance!

They're okay. SAD people like them a lot. I don't like them because they have honey in them and are very light/non-filling, which defeats the purpose of using bars for me. It's definitely a great bar to help transition for many. There are better choices like Think Organic & Pure, among others. Or you can make your own.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking of doing, is making my own. That's why I was wanting to know what was in them. Now since I know what's in them I can make them and stick to pretty much the way I'm eating now, but just add a bar or two and see if that helps me! I do want to order some so I can compare the taste and how much they help me! That is some of the foods that been low in my raw diet is the raw nuts & seeds! I eat alot of greens & bananas & fruit vegetables like cucumbers, tomatoes! So maybe this will be my answer!
Thanks again both of you for your help!

I have ordered them and they are very good. I also make my own. Kathy dehydrates them and I don't have a dehydrator so my are more chewie. I also follow her Raw Crunch Diet. I think she is a wonderful inspiration.

Thanks that incourages me even more! I would follow the raw crunch diet, but normally alot of vegetables & nuts tend to make me too tired and sleepy through the day! I can have like one nut bar along with my fruits, greens and a sald. More then that then I won't want to get out of bed, I guess because it takes more energy to digest them then it does green smoothies and fruit vegetables like tomatos & cucumbers, that's normally what I have on my salad besides onion & low fat salad dressing!
Anyway I might me wrong, I'm not sure yet. I've just tried one day of it, so I don't know for sure if it was the nut bar that made me so tired that I didn't want to get out of bed or if it was just from all the extra excercise I've done this week. This was the first day in a long time that I woke up this tired though!
Anyways, thanks again and have a great raw day!

Yes I agree about there possibly being too much fat in the diet. I have cut down to 1 bar. She also recommends a whole avocado in the lunch time salad which I cut out too. I am currently trying to get my dinner of choice straight. Right now I eat a non raw dinner, which sometimes leads to cravings & binges, but would like to eventually transition to a raw dinner.

I know what you mean too! Dinner is the hardest time for me because of smelling the cooked food my parents eat and I still miss those potatoes. I find it easier to eat dinner at a different time then my family does!
I think when I make my bars, I'm going to add more dried fruits and one type of seed and everytime I make more bars I'll use a different seed that time! So the bars won't make me as tired, I'll know I'm not going too high on my fats and so I can maybe have a couple of them without any worry!
Anyways thanks for your help! Have a great raw day!

Do you think the nuts and seeds are soaked first?

No. It would say sprouted if they were.

I just got a box of bars from Alissa's web site becaues I'm concerned about all the long distance cycling we do in the summer. I thought the one I've tried tasted pretty good! Gilmore Girl, what is that "Think Organic and Pure" that you mentioned? A different kind of bar?? Also, you folks that are making your own, are you making a recipe from Alissa's book?
