What is Whey Protein?
Whey protein is the primary source of protein in dairy. It’s a great source of amino acids which is essential for the body to function. If you have trouble getting enough protein in a day, a shake made with whey protein is a low carb and delicious way to increase it.
Is Coconut Keto?
Yes! Unlike many other fruits that are high in carbs, coconuts are mostly fiber and fat. Even better, the fat found in coconuts is MCT (medium-chain-triglycerides), which promotes a feeling of fullness and has been linked to other healthy benefits. For an one tablespoon serving size, there is only 1 net carb.
