Figuring out the "right" way to eat and exercise for your personal goals can feel daunting. The Health and Fitness Industry is kind of like a Gossip Magazine. Sweeping conclusions are publicized without legit scientific research and there's always new trendy miracle supplements, diets, or workouts that claim to be better than the last.

Even as a personal trainer, I too can get sucked into the latest fitness trends. This is why it's so important to find influencers you trust! I hope to be one of them for you :).

Well, for one, I not only had to find the time to film but also make myself look decent (yes, I washed my hair and put on makeup for this video! #killinit). As a blogger, I'm more comfortable with my writing voice, and my writing, um, uniform? It's easy to write anytime when the inspiration strikes knowing that if I'm sporting a wet, post-workout bun and bleach stained sweatpants it won't be seen by anyone. However, I'm always wanting to help all of you with your health journeys in the best way possible. A Q&A blog
I remember biting into my first protein bar. It was chocolaty, sugary, and... What's that?? "Healthy?!" I was hooked. Okay, so maybe I don't remember the exact first time, but I do remember having a major teenage addiction to the convenience of grabbing a sweet Balance or Clif bar when hunger stroke. What I didn't realize was, although it was healthier than reaching for a candy bar, it was by no means a viable meal replacement. Okay, so here's the scoop.

I'm breaking down the good, the bad, and the tasty for picking the best protein bars.
