    bad to eat powerbars/snickers marathon bars almost exclusively?

    i ordered about 120 snickers marathon energy bars on ebay and i was wondering if its bad to eat them almost exclusively? right now my diet is pretty bad since im at school all day a few days out of the week. i only have 5 min free time between class to eat (8am-8pm) and ive been eating junk from the vending machine previously due to time constriants.

    A diet without variety isn't healthy. Variety and moderation.

    This is a joke, right? if not I'm sorry, but you just bought a big load of candy bars witha bit of protein powder in them. Enjoy the sugar rush.

    Poverty / lack of time must be measured against the necessity of a balanced diet. If it were up to me, in terms of time and cost, I would eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all day. But lack of variety isn't good.

    If you want, you can send some of the candy bars my way.

    Mix in some gummy bears and you've got a balanced meal!

    You need to have a balanced diet, and what you describe is about as far from it as you can get. Fruits and vegtables can be carried to school.

    When I was just starting my business I ate nothing but PB & J on Orowheat Wheatberry bread for months. All I needed was three ingredients, one square foot of counter space, a knife, and $35/month. I once met a guy in Ouzazat in Morocco who claimed he never ate anything except bread and dates. Now I eat a fabulous balanced diet with 14 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Or something like that. You do what you have to do. The body's adaptability never ceases to amaze me.

    The Snickers sound better than vending machine junk.

    You know you can pack fruits/veggies in baggies, and take them to class? I don't imagine a carrot/bannana takes any more time to eat than a candy bar. You could pack a balanced lunch into your backpack, and eat one item between each class. I take my lunch everyday to class (ahh, just like elementary school). My regular items are Pb&J, lunch meat sandwiches, yogurt, applesauce, grapes, apples, and granola bars. I have enough of a break that I can eat everything I pack in one sitting. That doesn't mean that you can't segment out the meal time though.

    After many thousands of dollars of dental bills I mildly regret many of the sugary energy bars I have eaten. If your budget and cooing skills are like mine stuck with a good multi-grain bread. Alternate PB&J with thin sliced meats. With a little more $$ try throwing in a can or 3 of Ensure each day. With cost no object try a true total meal replacement like RAAM riders sometimes use. One with the odd name of Spiz is good but would cost.
