One of the current dietary conversations is about a Keto Diet
Here’s response to the often-asked question: Can I use Shaklee Products while I’m following these keto-friendly protocols? The answer is YES.
Here’s a summary of the NEW Shaklee Life Shakes: “Yes we are so excited that they are keto friendly! A net 8 to 10 g of carb for an entire meal is excellent! So if you’re on the Shaklee 180 plan and do two of these a day you’re still only at 20 g of carb for having had 2 complete better-than-organic meals! We are SO happy about this. They contain a little bit of sugar which has Nothing to do with whether or not it is a keto food. Keto has to do with net grams of carbs and how the food impacts your blood glucose level. The new SHAKLEE shakes are keto friendly and low glycemic. Let’s shout it from the rooftops.”
Here’s another Question: “Why doesn’t Shaklee specifically label these products Keto-friendly?” Here’s a helpful PS from an experienced consumer. :
“I cannot imagine Shaklee ever having a shake that is specifically branded toward a certain nutrition trend/fad. However, for someone who is Keto they most certainly consume MANY foods that are not specifically Keto branded. No such thing as KetoBacon, KetoVeggies, KetoMeat…but they still consume all those things. Shaklee’s Shakes, with an exception of just a couple that are designed for specific athletic recovery such as Physique/Build+/BioBuild, can fit very well into our customer’s nutrition plans who follow Keto guidelines. The main concern of Keto is keeping carbs/sugars minimum to none. The Build Whey protein and the Lifeshake both meet the standard for many Keto folks I know as the carbs are 3g and 8-10g respectively. And many who are looking for quality protein powder are willing to use their limited daily carbs toward a protein shake.”
Here’s official reply from the Shaklee Blog:
Note the last sentence in the blog: “If you do decide to try the keto diet, one good thing is you can continue to use Shaklee while you’re on it. Our no-added-sugar Life Shake™ can be used as a keto-friendly meal.”
