Several factors!: I recommend those with the lowest carbs, highest fiber, and highest protein. Other factors are cost. I do not recommend the Special K bars. The atkins bars are good, as are others.

Health and Diet: None. There is no special health benefits in protein bars. They are food. The health comes from a diet high in protein and low in sugars. Healthy eating is low calorie, low carbohydrate and high in protein. Thus including protein bars that are low in carbs increases one's total protein calories and thus is part of a healthy daily calorie consumption.

Constipation: Constipation is a common side effect of a high protein diet ... That's why, like most things in life, moderation is key. As well, you should be increasing your fiber intake to match the demand from the added protein. Hope that helps!
