I recognize the dedication that you needed to develop the best protein bar in the world. It’s similar commitment to excellence that I needed to win three world championships and the gold medal in the decathlon in 1996.
I eat at least one Jim’s Permalean Protein Bar every day. It’s the healthiest, natural, high protein, low sugar meal I have seen. I highly recommend the bars and the protein shakes.

These bars are perfection! I never would have thought a well balanced, all natural protein bar that actually tastes great could exist…but it does. Thank you Jim! They get me through those long tours…out on the road, performances and just my everyday life. My daughter loves them and I with these ingredients you can’t go wrong! Well done!

I’d like to tell you how your product has impacted my life:
I purchased my vanilla powder from a surgeon who does bariatric surgery because my protein was so low. I’ll be honest…I bought it over a year ago and it sat untouched in my cabinet. I had gastric bypass surgery in 1998 (a year and a half before Carnie Wilson made it so popular.) Anyway, I have a lot of complications and extreme malabsorption/malnutrition is the primary cause secondary to the surgery. I have no stomach remnant, and anything I eat passes right through my esophagus into my intestines.
There is absolutely no time spent in the stomach, and absolutely no absorption. Two months ago I had a spontaneous fracture of my knee. I fractured two bones, and when the doctor went into do surgery, he said he had never seen anything like the total degeneration of my knee. He said it looked like it had just rotted away. We know that my poor nutritional status contributed to this. I have had a lot of healing problems in the past, and I decided I needed to take charge of my health. I started drinking protein shakes using your Vigorously Vain Vanilla. I drank one in the morning and one in the evening daily. In addition to having a rapid recovery with my knee, I have also found I have more energy, and my hair and skin look better. I am only 41, so I expect to have many years left in me, and I know that your product will contribute to it. I have tried other protein supplements in the past (even in my thin/pre-surgery days, and I could not tolerate the stomach upset, taste, or the big one for me…the smell of the products! (And they gave me stomach cramps and diarrhea!)
I use 6oz of unsweetened pineapple juice (not from concentrate), a little bit of Splenda, and a scoop of protein powder. I blend them, and I then add frozen strawberries until thick and smooth. (Sometimes I use fresh strawberries and ice cubes, because I know fresh strawberries are a little healthier for me, but I like the consistency better when I use frozen ones.) I love it!!! Prior to this smoothie, I could not tolerate ice cream, or any kind of frozen treats or smoothies. This serves as a delicious treat as well as a nutritious meal. I was not eating enough fruit prior to these smoothies, and your product has allowed me to incorporate more fruit into my deficient diet. Now, some people could say that I could just make a fruit smoothie without the protein, but I tried that, and I do not like the taste or consistency. See, it really is your product that makes the difference!!!
Well, this got a little long winded, but it is not often that I actually feel a product is all that it claims to be. As a registered nurse, and a mental health nurse, I know how important diet is, not only to your physical body, but also to your mental health. Let me sum this note up like this…I feel better since I started using your protein supplements than I have in the past eight years.
By the way...my next purchase will be right from you

Hi! I am a 47 year old mother of three and wife who grew up in a family where exercise was not an option. I have always been healthy and petite except during my pregnancies and a few rough spots during Dad’s 10 year battle with cancer.
Although I am a self motivator, losing weight was a huge challenge after my father’s death because I stayed on the road, ate fast food, and in addition, not only love to cook, I love to eat. I was introduced to Permalean through a friend in Baltimore and can’t live without the product. Everywhere I go (Starbucks, the lacrosse games, the soccer field, the beach), people ask me what I am eating. My response, “it is the best bar on the market.”
This is truly one of the most amazing products on the market and I can’t live without it.
The bars are everything a person could ask for. It is healthy, has phenomenally low sugar and carb gram counts, no preservatives, and they taste like candy. Giving up popcorn at the movies was the hardest of all, but now I have replaced movie popcorn with a Starbucks and bar. The powder is also completely amazing. There is nothing like it out there on the market…I use a vitamix and make a mocha frapp with ice, protein powder and 1/3 cup of decaff. It is unbelievable and unlike the thick gooey powder that makes a drink taste like a thawed out milkshake which is completely nasty.
I have lost 32 pounds since December 31st with this supplement and exercise. I feel the best I have in years and feel sad for those who don’t know the product exists. The bars are a daily staple in my busy life as a mother of three. Again, I am really not sure what I would do without this amazing product in my life.

Just wanted to drop you a short note to let you know how much we love your Permalean products. Of all the protein bars and shakes we sell (as you know we carry only the top bars and shake mixes in the market) yours are by far the most popular and best selling.
We are constantly hearing from our clients how great the bars taste and how much better your protein powder is than other brands we sell. As the top Medical Fitness Center, we scrutinize the contents of what we sell. Our diabetic and weight loss clientele are especially grateful for your bars…not only do they help to maintain balanced blood sugar levels, but then get to eat what they are calling a “candy bar.”
From a strictly business perspective we really appreciate the opportunity to offer a real “hot” product line that isn’t found everywhere yet. It helps to stay on the leading edge.
Keep us the great work,
Jimmy Page, Director

Last year I tried your PermaLean Gourmet Protein Power on the recommendation of my personal trainer. At the time I had been using another drink that contained aspartame, which caused me to have migraine headaches. Also, I was having difficulty losing weight.
It was a pleasant surprise to discover the delicious flavor of PermaLean's products, and since it doesn't contain aspartame my headaches are gone. I have made Gourmet protein power a regular supplement to my eating plan.
The best result has been that once I started using your product my weight started dropping. To this date, I've lost fifty-four
pounds and I feel very energetic!

Here's my before and after pictures. I've lost a total of 35 pounds going from 237 pounds to 202 and I'm feeling great. My waist went from 42 to 36 as well and my blood pressure is down from 168/95 to 125/76 to boot.
I use the Gourmet Protein Powershakes in the morning and believe it or not I sometimes mix in a scoop of Metamucil to add a little extra fiber. Being 50 the extra fiber helps. I have the Gourmet Protein Crunch bars as a supplement before lunch which often includes an orange, banana and some lean chicken.
I particularly like the Stark RavingPeanutz bars. I also use the MetaBoost product before my workouts which consists of 1/2 hour on the treadmill and 1/2 hour on the exercise bike every other day. I walk a lot more now since I have so much more energy. I'm in upper level management at a major Fortune 500 company and I truly believe that my healthier appearance is partly the cause for a recent promotion. Just one more note. I'm Lactose intolerant so your product is really the only product I've been able to use that doesn't cause me any problems.

Here are my before and after pics. Still have a ways to go, but you can definitely see the difference in the before and after pics. (Total weight loss is about 55 pounds since December ) Slow but sure and not hard at all, especially with the use of the PermaLean Protein Power shakes (Chocoholic Chocolate is my favorite), and the Protein Crunch bars.
I am not much of a breakfast eater, and starting off the day with a double shot (2 scoops) of the Protein Powder gives me a delicious shake, and I mean DELICIOUS, and provides 40 grams of protein and only 208 calories, and gives me so much energy to start my day in the right way. In addition, the Protein Powder or a Protein Crunch bar comes in very handy in the late afternoon when I am starving and tempted to go to the candy machine, or at night when I just have to have a midnight snack. The PermaLean products are always there for me when I need something good to eat, and since they taste like something "sinful", they really satisfy that urge to binge. I am so thankful that I found the PermaLean Weight Loss Center, Dr. Sheldon Milner, and the PermaLean Products. Truly, these products are correctly marketed as "The lowest glycemic, best tasting protein meal in the universe!" I LOVE THIS STUFF.

In 1993 my wife got pregnant - and I got pregnant right along with her. I think we gained the same amount! I was eating less - only two meals a day but continuing to gain weight. As a former high school athlete, I was used to being fit. Now I was struggling with workouts - low energy, low intensity. I had no motivation and working out was not enjoyable at all. I just couldn't "get it back."
Being a natural researcher, I began to study nutrition. I read everything I could get my hands on and spoke with numerous professionals including chemists, nutriceutical manufacturers, and Bariatric physicians - doctors who specialize in the treatment of obesity. I enlisted the help of my own personal trainer. He created a nutrition and fitness regimen for me and kept me motivated. My personal experience and success revealed the secrets to a permanently lean body:
1) Eating less meant gaining more weight.
2) Drinking more water meant losing more water weight.
3) Certain vitamin/mineral combinations and herbs promote lean muscle and reduce fat.
4) Staying motivated is the secret ingredient.
The PermaLean System and my second child were born just about the time. It's a true state-of-the-art support system of wellness professionals with nutritional supplements developed by the best analytical chemists, manufacturers and medical minds. PermaLean is the first complete fat loss and weight management program to integrate nutritionally complete supplements, regular food and professionally prescribed exercise programs for every athletic level with personal trainers - even if you've been sedentary all your life. It is a medically documented and affordable approach to the difficult problem of fat loss and weight management.

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your protein bars. I am truly addicted to them. I had bariatric surgery in January and been eating your protein bars since probably March. I just love them. It is a great snack in between meals and OH MY GOD, they taste great. I have tried many protein bars and your stark raving peanuts and chocolate chocolate are simply the best ever! Thanks for bringing these into my life!
A customer for life!
