    No because the concept of "clean" food sources is dumb from the start.

    so are you saying a surplus lets say of 350-500 calories of crap is just as good as a surplus of healthy food choices and excess calories get stored as fat regardless?

    I consider them to be food, like everything else we eat. Clean and dirty are arbitrary terms with no place in a dietary setting.

    Yes they will be 'clean'. The parent company is Simply Good Food and I imagine their portfolio of businesses are inspected continuously for food standards so rest assure the mice droppings will be minimal.

    If you think of food as "clean" and "dirty", you're already setting yourself up for a miserable diet full of guilt and tasteless meals

    Majority like due to convenience, macros, and the "sweet" taste. The high sugar alcohols and high fiber don't sit well with me. They have some interesting flavors though.

    Try the Costco branded ones. Same macros but they sit well with people for some reason. I had a few of the Quests when they first came out years ago but I don't like their texture or the fact you have to heat them up a little for them to be edible. Otherwise you're sitting there gnawing at a near hard as rock bar like a rabid dog making ape like noises and people treat you like you're messed up in the head.

    A surplus is a surplus. Obviously there are slight differences with things such as TEF but at the end of the day you are going to gain fat if you eat in a surplus regardless if it is from grilled chicken or pop tarts.
