I went to Costco today and found Premier Protein shakes. I bought a pack of 18 for $19.99 because it was low in carbs and fat. However, it has a lot of protein and more calories than typical unrestricted IP products. Each shake contains 160 calories, 3 g fat, 5g carbs (3 of which are finer), 30 g protein. Would this be okay for an unrestricted serving?
Alternatively, I could measure out 225 ml from 325 ml each shake in order to get 104 calories per serving.
Thanks for your input!
That is a lot of protein. IP products have approximately 15 g.
If you drank half, you'd have 15 g and 80 cals, which is more like an IP product.
This is why I choose to use the items from Nashua Nutrition. They fit the IP protocol better.
