Yon Bons Protein Endurance Bites are macro balanced at 50% carbohydrate, 25% protein, and 25% healthy fat. This balance provides sustained energy and fast recovery in every nutritious bite!
As an endurance athlete, training and competing for 35 years, I tried almost every energy bar on the market intended for sustained energy and recovery. I was never truly satisfied with what I ate and experienced, and in 2018 was inspired to create a real food snack that I could trust. I needed a snack that would fuel my workouts, provide fast recovery, and provide healthy nutrition for my family. Through my experiences training and racing, I knew that eating balanced meals of 50% carbohydrate, 25% protein, and 25% healthy fat was the optimal way to sustain energy and speed recovery throughout the day. With the help of my family and after many hours in the kitchen, we created the perfect 50-25-25 bite sized snack and accomplished our mission. We created “Yon Bons” using only healthy ingredients, with no preservatives, artificial sweeteners, or added sugars. As the coach of TRiYon Performance I began to share Yon Bons with my athletes and the response was overwhelming. Their testimonies quickly made us realize that we had a product we needed to share with many. With the help of a local Charlotte bakery we were able to increase our production and take Yon Bons to the market. We continue to work hard creating new flavors using only all natural and organic ingredients that promote healthy lifestyles and enhance athletic performance. As an athlete, coach, and father of 5 you quickly realize how important healthy nutrition is for maintaining an active lifestyle!

The Perfect Macro Balanced Fuel
50-25-25 How Does It Work?
Carbohydrates are essential for quick fueling energy and to avoid the afternoon energy crash. By eating 50% of your calories from carbohydrate you will simultaneously fuel your body while teaching it to burn body fat for additional energy. The process will help you increase lean muscle tissue, lower body fat percentage, and improve your endurance.
Protein is a necessity for peak performance. Without enough protein your body is susceptible to injury, illness, and muscular breakdown. As an athlete or active person, you should eat 25% of your calories from protein. Specifically design each meal and snack throughout the day with 25% protein and you will reach your protein goal for the day.
Healthy Fats are essential for optimal health. They accelerate base metabolism, fight free radicals, and help transport vitamins and minerals for a healthy body. Keep fat intake to 25% of your calories and give your body the ideal amount for improved health without the harmful effects of keto diets.
