In today’s image-conscious society, it is now not enough just to be thin. One must think thin as well. thinkThin Protein Bar founder & CEO Lizanne (a one-name wonder like Cher or Madonna) describes the inspiration behind the bars on the packaging and the website as well: “I created the Think Thin bar for women like me. As a busy working mom committed to managing my weight*, I wanted truly delicious, high-protein foods without sugar or anything artificial.
