Celebrity Secret To Snacking

Effective dieting is about the whole package, including exercise, vitamins and especially snacking. With so many programs demanding several small meals a day, it pays to have a convenient and healthy snack on hand.

Recently launched by celebrity fitness and nutrition expert, Harley Pasternak, responsible for some of the best-looking bodies in Hollywood (like Lady Gaga, Halle Berry and Megan Fox), the 5-Factor Snack Bar easily answers the snack riddle. Specifically designed to go with his 5-Factor program, which requires eating five times a day and five short workouts a week, the snack bars easily fit into a healthy lifestyle with at least 10 grams of protein and five grams of fiber. It comes in three flavors: very berry, apple cinnamon and peanut butter crisp-all of which are less than 200 calories each. I had one stashed in my desk drawer in case of a late afternoon slump and when I needed it, it definitely gave me the energy to finish the workday. Plus, I'm convinced the very berry bar was made with me in mind because it tastes like Berry Berry Kix, which I loved as a kid.
