I saw this infomercial on tv about the “Full Bar.” It supposedly acts just like gastirc bypass. By eating the Full Bar 30 minutes before your meal it fills you up and prevents you from over eating. It was made by a gastric bypass doctor. Is this bar really the break through the doctor is talking about or a gimmick that could cost you hundreds of dollars?? Here are the reviews… brace yourself.
Here is what the Doctor had to say about his own product
FullBar was invented by a surgeon who claims it can trick your brain into thinking your full, therfore resulting in weight loss. The instructions are: “Simply eat FullBar with an 8-ounce glass of water 30 minutes before your 2 biggest meals of the day. The upper part of your stomach is stretched out and tells your brain: Stop! I’m full!”
This would be a great theory, if it worked. If eating FullBars doesn’t significantly reduce your food intake you will have consumed an extra 360 calories for the day, this could actually cause you to gain weight (source).

As a consumer, I would definately steer you away from this bar. I think the main downfall with this “fiber bar,” is that it may not decrease your calorie intake. More and more people these days suffer from a supressedmetabolism due to low calorie diets, and loss of muscle mass. Therefore, the true solution to weight loss is healthy, frequent eating, supplemented with weight training and a cardio routine.
