What is everyone's thoughts on the Premier Protein drinks. 30 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar. You can get them in chocolate and vanilla. You can buy them at Costco

They are my go-to protein drink. I like the vanilla and use it as creamer for my coffee

I had a craving for sugar and it took away the craving and made me feel full at the same time.

Are you LCHF? If so just make sure you balance out all that protein with your fat and you should be good. I’ve never used that kind before. I have used a protein powder and mixed it will heavy cream to make pudding a couple of times.

I was before until family kept offering food. This time I am not telling anyone. Some of my family members are very opinionated and food would be the main topic of convo if they knew I was back on it. So today is me first day....again. I will have to try that pudding combo. And I have to do more research with regards to ratios.

I tried them, they arent bad, but because there is so much protein, I had to find a way to add more fat. If you are just low carb it should be fine, but for Keto or LCHF there is too much protein.

Thinking about doing this about a week before an "unpleasant procedure"... cause I'm at that age. Thoughts?

So perhaps drink just half if LCHF. Again i definately need to research ratios

there are a lot of sites that have keto calculators, you put in your numbers and your body fat ratio and it gives you a basic guideline, then you adjust as needed for your needs. what do you need liquid protein for?? normally you can get plenty of quality protein from your diet. I tend to avoid artificial foods.

How it started today was through sugar craving and I knew protein fills u up. Not doing it for workouts or anything like that. Will definitely look up one of those sites. And From371to184 if u don't get a response to your question here, do a journal entry with that question; I wouldn't want it lost in this one :)

I bought the AdvantEDGE. 100calories, 0g sugar, 17g proetin(34%) 2.5g Fat (3%) 3 total carbs, but less than 1g Fiber. I didn't think about the low fat in these and they need more fiber. I can make that happen. I was doing LC before but trying Keto now, so I'll have to make adjustments.

What kind of sugar and what else is in it, 
09 Jul 18 by member: mrsdave1
It is sucralose. 160 cal, 1 gram of sugar, 30 g of protein. I might try the AdvantEDGE after these. Oh and also there are a whole bunch of chemicals that would make ur hair stand on end lol. But in the meantime, I will finish off this case first :)

I'm a big fan of these though Peaches and Cream is my favorite!

Protein without fat metabolize in an unfavourable way. Under my disipline, these things are banned. Natures protein sources are not.
