King of Protein?

With 30 gm of protein and only 1 gm of sugar, Premier Protein shakes are a delicious, low carb, protein rich snack or part of a breakfast on the go.  Atkins has recently come out with their version of a 30 gm protein shake, but, in spite of the many excellent Atkins products on the market,  we prefer the flavor of Premier over Atkins if you want to try an extra  high protein shake.

Miss the crunch of chips?

If you are on a low carb diet for weight loss and you miss the "crunch" of Dorito's and potato chips, try these protein chips by Quest.  With 21 grams of protein and only 3 grams net carbs per each 130 cal bag, these chips are a great, low carb snack alternative!  They are available on Amazon and have been spotted locally at Walmart, The Vitamin Shoppe, and bed, Bath, and Beyond.

I'm on a low carb diet, so pass the...cookies?

image15

Following a low carb diet is certainly not as hard as it used to be.  You can even indulge in cookies without falling off of your program.  These chocolate chip cookies by Quest are high in protein, low in sugar and net carbs, and grade high in flavor and consistency.  We purchased these at Target and highly recommend them for those who are trying to lose weight by going low carb.  Just be sure to hide them from your kids!
