    Keto and Whey...

    I am just about ready to start keto, have been doing a few weeks of research. I was just curious, you guys say to avoid whey cept for PW, is that bc whey has a lot of sugar? i have about 6lbs of whey tech - which has 1g of sugar per serving and 3 carbs with a gram of fiber mixed in. is that ok? or should i stay away from it?

    You can use it in a pinch if you miss a meal, but all in all whole food is best.

    If you must have a shake (other than PW) I feel it is best to add some flax or olive oil to it. This will slow down the absorbtion rate and limit the possible insulin realease.

    A little preperation goes a long way. Take a small cooler to work (I do no matter what diet I am on).

    Again I feel shakes are okay as meal, but only when in a pinch.

    I agree with fitnessman (of course! would be retarded not too ) all i'd add is if you REALLY need a shake a blended protein (egg, casein) may be better than straight whey.

    Actually, grilling up a plethora of chicken breasts on the weekend and tossing one in cooler is a lot less trouble than trying to mix up a protein shake. You just have to get in the habit.

    Try it and find out.

    I drink protein shakes with coconut oil, but only to get my protein up and because coconut oil is so nasty, it's easier to drink it in a shake.

    But in your case where you just need the food/calories, you could just swallow 3tbsp of flaxseed oil for a 300calorie "meal"..
    Or eat nuts.. small enough to take to work..

    I find even when I add fats to my whey, the insulin reponse is still quite significant! As chimp said blended is a better option with food being the best option!
