If you like having a protein shake after your workout but want to keep it low-carb, then this Raspberry Keto Protein Shake is for you. It has only 7g of net carbs per serve and is substantial enough to count as lunch or breakfast.

 

The Low Down On Protein Powder

I have used 1 scoop of protein powder to keep the protein levels low.

An important distinction to make with the Ketogenic Diet is that it’s a high-fat, low-carb and moderate protein diet. There is a common misconception that low-carb, high-fat diets (LCHF) mean eating astonishing amounts of protein. This couldn’t be further from a true ketogenic or low-carb diet.

It is actually important that protein in the diet is kept to moderate levels – 20% protein or less (by calorie) which is in the range of 90-150g per day.

Why is this so?

If you consume too much protein, any excess will be converted into glucose. This process is called gluconeogenesis. So just while you are trying to keep carbs/sugars to a minimum, eating excess protein creates more!

Then of course the glucose in your system kicks of hunger and cravings and you are back where you started. So eating too much protein can sabotage your efforts to stay in ketosis and lose weight.

If you are aiming to stay in ketosis and depending on what other protein you are consuming that day, keep the protein low.  Otherwise feel free to add a second scoop of protein powder, based on your protein requirements.

Look out for a low-carb protein powder – I am currently using the Isopure Zero Carb brand, which has a lot of great flavors. For this recipe though, use unflavored or vanilla protein powder. Enjoy!

  1. I have the collagen protein powder is that ok on the keto diet? I want a drink after my work out to replace my dinner?

    • Yes – the collagen protein powder would be great. As long as the one you are using doesn’t have any carbs or sugar.

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
