Too many of these low carb gap fillers are loaded with sweeteners, which just prolongs the sugar cravings. If you're a Costco shopper looking for a low carb savoury snack, check out KP Dry Roast Peanuts for around £6 a resealable kilo bag. Only 7.2% carbs. The ultimate low carb snack is of course pork scratchings but they're a bit pricey and I can't quite bring myself to order a kilo bag from eBay - who knows where they could have come from?
These are used to supplement protein intake rather than as low carb gap fillers

Suggest you actually research a product before slating it. It’s aimed at the fitness market for people who use it as a quick on the go high protein meal
Replacement. And sugars aren’t instant fat. If you follow a calorie deficit diet you will lose weight end of.

I don't think you understand the product category
People on keto diets are necking back low carb high protein products previously aimed at body builders because they believe it will satisfy hunger, yet limit blood glucose spikes. This shake is called Carb Killa, not Protein Boosta or Body Builda.

With a name like 'Carb Killa' it's aimed at anybody on a keto plan.

Yeah you really don't know much about the brand and your getting yourself worked up on it. Grenade is a sports confectionery and entry level supplement brand, the carb killa name isn't meant to be implied to be for a keto diet as these well and Truly predate the popularity of the fad.

The name is simply the name it is because of this concept called marketing, branding and wanting to build a brand identity believe it or not?

The shakes are marketed as a alternative to their popular protein bars range which again are sold as a protein intake supplement, the bars they make originally were successful because the product category was high callorie and bad taste if you wanted anything over 20G's.

This is just a RTD protein shake which has macros not too far off making a shake yourself.
Carb killa: 198 cals, P:24 C:8.9 f:2.2
Generic protein: 100 cals P:20 C:1.6 f:1.1. + 150ml of milk + 150ml water

So please calm down screaming against keto when not one brought it up, the brand is aimed that bodybuilders / strength athletes and the average Joe because who wants to limit there target audience

When was I 'screaming against keto'? I was simply suggesting cheaper, savoury, low carb alternatives to people feeling the need to snack when on a carb restricted diet, for whatever reason. But you have to agree with me that most people are on low carb to reduce body fat.

Looking through Grenade's inventory, it's clear to see that they have a large range of products marketed towards people operating a low carb ketogenic diet to reduce body fat, not building muscle mass. I think have a reasonable understanding of nutrition and can see that this shake, whilst containing around 8% protein, is intentionally restricted in carbs (none of which are complex) which are needed as a fuel source to prevent muscle loss resulting from exercise. It wouldn't be much use for a bodybuilder. Grenade DO have A LOT of products which are geared towards building muscle mass, this shake is not one of them.

So yes, I agree that the Grenade brand is generally aimed at bodybuilders, but disagree that THIS Carb Killa product is for building muscle mass just because it has the word 'protein' in its description.

As I pointed out, if you desire protein in conjunction with low carbs, you'd be better of with a handful of dry roasted peanuts which are 30% protein, have 8% fibre and at least some complex carbs AND these are available at the same store for a very reasonable price. If you're thirsty, drink some water.

39 peanuts, contains 170 calories, 7 grams of protein, 6 grams of carbohydrates. Grenade shake has 20g for 200 callories. And actually if your in prep for a show you'd keep carbs really low and protein high which this shake can aid with as long as you get your other 3-6 meals in.

This is just a RTD Protein shake with 20g which is a standard amount in the product category.

I feel your nutrition understanding is not the best, you'd probably say creatine is bad for you.

Take 2.2g of velositol to make the 20g work like 35g.

Jordan, stalking is pathetic. Looking around for other posts I've made just to argue with me is pathetic in the extreme.

I didn't say 'peanuts' I specifically stated KP Dry Roast Peanuts for which you can read the nutritional information here:

Per 100g: Energy 2642kJ / 594kcal Fat 47g of which Saturates 7.8g Carbohydrate 7.2g of which Sugars 5.1g Fibre 8.6g Protein 30g Salt 2.0g

Yes, plenty of calories from fat, but most of those calories would be passed through undigested (as we all know) because they are less easily converted into blood glucose compared to the other macro nutrients present.

In any case, you at least appear to have accepted that Grenade do have a selection of products aimed at ketogenic dieters and this shake is part of that range. Keto dieters and bodybuilders have entirely different lifestyles and objectives, which you seem to fail to grasp, or at least consider in your pointless argument.

I'm not allowed to comment on other posts? Shock horror

In that case all ready to drink protein shakes are created for the keto diet specifically? All whey iso powders are too? You do understand if your in show prep you restrict carbs as much as possible? The grenade carb killa products predate any large spike in popularity of keto and this backed from Google trends data.

If your macros are 200g a day, 4 meals at 40g then a bar and a shake would bring you to your target, its just a protein supplement and a alternate to their bars. Your reading too far into the brand.

I suggest you speak to Mike Simmons from grenade.
If you really want to argue then drop me a DM but i know you won't
Jordan, your opinions and posts in this thread are obviously heavily influenced by your bodybuilding obsession, and I get that. You still fail to grasp that there is crossover marketing going on here. Who can blame Grenade for wanting to widen their market appeal?

I made an initial comment aimed at helping keto dieters. You and a few other people responded from a bodybuilding perspective without considering that there are people in the world consuming these products for different reasons to your own. There is no disagreement here. I'm sure these are okay for bodybuilders as part of a tightly controlled multi-meal mission to develop their ideal body shape. You obviously have a detailed understanding of nutrition, are you not able to accept that there are cheaper alternatives to non-bodybuilders on a weight reducing keto plan who need a low blood sugar impact snack occasionally? And also that keto dieters are likely to be big sugar addicts who might fall off the wagon too easily if they consume artificially sweetened products such as this shake?

I think we're finally on the same ground or near enough, it definitely is aimed at active people from every press release i can find, I'm not a bodybuilder, strength boyo.

End of the day keto is a fad and we all know how callories effect weight gain and loss

Unlikely, as people on a Keto diet generally stay clear of milk.
