    are protein shakes a good meal replacement or alright in general if one is on a low carb diet?

    Cytosport whey has 0%, Iron-Tek has 1%, so I'm assuming all whey protein is VERY low in carbs.

    BSN Syntha-6 is the best tasting protein imo, but it is not all whey it is a meal replacement shake and it has 5% per serving.

    Pretty ideal for low carb diets. I have two a day with plenty of fats added. But i also have 4 other solid meals.

    try a casein/whey blend... it'll keep you fuller longer than straight whey...

    damn, syntha 6 is fucking tasty. depends on the flavor though, the mochachino one is delicious, but the cookies n cream sucks.
