It's a roundabout way to convert the amino acids of protein into the glucose we use as energy as extra steps are needed, and ammonia is produced as a byproduct.
It's really the body's least favorite source of energy, and protein will not be converted to energy if carbs and fats are available, it's only as a last resort.
If you need quick energy go for simple carbs, as in dextrose or a piece of sweet fruit, don't skimp out on the protein though, it's really important for other reasons, but not for energy.

I've tried fruit and it only makes me hungrier (apples, oranges, and bananas)
I need a quick boost of energy which a protein bar provides. Not saying that's the case for everyone, but it's been doing well for me so far.
My diet otherwise is good, just very scarce.
Thanks for the tips, though

The bar probably has added sugars.
Could also be the combination of the satiation of the sensation of hunger plus some sort of psychological placebo or respondent conditioning where the mind will temporarily feel better again after eating.
Might also be for other reasons, I don't know.
However, protein itself can not be quickly be digested and converted to energy.
The process itself, gluconeogenesis, happens mainly in the liver and to a lesser extent in the kidney, and all these extra steps it has to take is after the digestion (of breaking up the protein into amino acids).

Both my liver and kidneys are fucked (taking daily infusions to treat them)
The psychological element isn't there since I've tried other things prior to protein bars (as stated previously, experimented with fruit; chocolate seems to work fairly well but doesn't last long enough to get me up and make a proper meal)
Maybe because my hepatic system is failing, protein bars work adequately?
