Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Bars - Product Review

New to the Discount Supplements site we have the Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean range, consisting of the Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Whey Bars and the Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Meal Replacement Bars.

Each type of bar is slightly different, but both have their own benefits to offer.

Now let’s go into a little more detail about each bar and check out the benefits of each...

The Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Whey Bar

Opti Lean Whey Bar

The softer bar of the two, slightly smaller (53g compared to the 60g Meal Replacement Bar) lower in fibre, fat and carbohydrates yet both have the same protein content - 20g per bar.

Unlike the Meal Replacement Bar, the Lean Whey Bars have added CLA, L-Carnitine & Green Tea Extract making them very well suited for those on a weight loss or weight management plan.

In our opinion, these are the better tasting of the two, along with having a softer texture. If you’re after a decent tasting bar with a few added extras, this is the one for you.

Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Meal Replacement Bar

Opti Lean Meal Replacement Bars

Okay, so these bars are slightly different, they offer a more balanced nutritional profile along with a wide spectrum of vitamins & minerals, are higher in fibre, provide more calories and are the bigger of the two.

Because they have more ingredients (particularly due to the fibre), they are slightly more dense, however they are a meal replacement bar so it’s a fair trade. These are ideal for those who are looking for a convenient way to replace a meal in a ready to go bar form.

Main Benefits of the ON Opti Lean Meal Replacement Bars

  • High protein (20g)
  • Helps contribute to weight loss when used a meal replacement as part of an energy restricted diet
  • Contribute to growth and repair
  • Added vitamins and minerals
  • High fibre
  • Well balanced

Currently available in two flavours:

  • Chocolate Brownie
  • Salted Caramel

Which Bar Is Best For Me?

Are you looking for a meal replacement bar i.e. a slightly more balanced bar with a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals that’s intended to replace a meal rather than be used as a snack? Then go for the Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Meal Replacement Bars.

Looking for a slightly lower calorie bar that can be used around exercise or as a high protein, more indulgent snack with the benefits of CLA, L-Carnitine & Green Tea? Go for the Optimum Nutrition Opti Lean Whey Bars.

…and there you have it.

Two bars with slightly different benefits, both of which can assist in your weight loss journey, but by slightly different means.
