Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.

According to a Gallup Study, 16% of men use hairspray. If you're one of those guys (we're not ashamed to say that we occasionally partake), ditch the Aqua Net for good and get yourself a can of the Redken For Men Hold Still styling spray ($11; Salons only in Sept.). We've been testing it for a week or so and can tell you that it's a fast-drying spray that provides super firm hold all day long. In addition to keeping your hair in place, it also protects and keeps its healthy with pro vitamin B5 and vitamin E.
