I really like Isopure on Amazon. Great protein/calorie ratio and affordable. I like the unflavored, but I think they have flavored too.
I also had cellulite ALL. OVER. my upper thighs and bum, and it took about 3-4 months of lifting (4 leg/booty days per week) before my cellulite became no longer visible. You got this!
Also might I recommend this protein powder? It legit has 0 taste so I add it to anything, including spaghetti, soups, macaroni & cheese, oatmeal, etc. basically anything with a little liquid can be mixed with it without it tasting bad lol. Got tired of the flavored stuff because what you can add it to was so limited (basically all smoothies).
I'm getting the hang of putting some unflavored isopure into other things to boost my protien#s [link]
Tried it in my version of BPC this morning (1T buter, 1 T coconut oil, 2 T half & half + ezsweetz) and it was pretty good. It was a little thicker but no weird flavor.
If you're at all a coffee (or tea/chai) drinker then BPC is one way to get some calories & protein in even if you're not interested in solid food.
Hang in there - you can do it!
One is labeled keto because the word keto and the image it conjures in people's minds sells products. The marketing team has a meme understanding of keto, upping the fat and using other buzzwords like MCT oil and CLA. Protein is the only goal, not fat. Fat just adds calories. If I had to buy one of these protein powders, I'd buy the one with the most protein. When I use protein powder this is the one I choose.
I use isopure unflavored for mixing into foods. I recommend warming up the food first and then adding the power. Otherwise the powder tends to cook and changes the consistency of the food.
When I first read the post, it stood out to me because I get a similar feeling. I often eat snacks/unhealthy meals because I feel starved but it’s actually my body telling me I’m dehydrated. I’d recommend buying a large water botter (plastic is cheap) and make a habit of chugging it when you wake up, chugging before a meal, chugging before bed. Eventually teach yourself better reminders such as drink some every 30mins but as an immediate action just start chugging water at important times. You’re body is roughly 60% water, if you train hard you desperately need to replenish the water used.
I’m confident that there is protein powder for cheap somewhere. I go to Trader Joe’s and can get some for roughly 20$. If you really exhausted 100% of all options nearby, and online for example:
This is only 15$
Then you need to create your own high protein meals. The best high protein options to eat are:
2) peanuts / peanut butter
6) cottage cheese
7) Greek yogurt
11) lean beef
I like isopure but I think 1 lb bags are the smallest I’ve seen. I haven’t looked in store though- my friend gets hers from GNC. I order from amazon. I wouldn’t just put it in a glass of water, but i can add it to anything and not tell it’s in there.
Isopure Zero Carb Unflavored 25g Protein, 100% Whey Protein Isolate, Keto Friendly Protein Powder, No Added Colors/Flavors/Sweeteners, GMO Free, 1 Pound (Packaging May Vary) [link]
It is unflavored protein powder
GNC and vitamin Shoppe sell a ton of protein powders and I think they have good return polices
Protein powder? I use this kind because it truly is flavorless, so I can add it to pretty much anything, be it sweet or savory, without affecting the taste of the food at all IMO.
I sub part of the almond flour with Oat fiber (not oat flour) and/or isopure powder [link]. The oat fiber and isopure have a fluffier consistancy. BUT, oat fiber dilutes flavor in my opinion.
I have been drinking this: [link]
No Sugar, No Carbs.
Isopure Whey Protein Isolate, Unflavored
Not super awesome tasting, but if you drink it while eating food it goes down well.
Unflavored whey protein isolate is the bomb in fried recipes. It's pretty bland on its own so you may want to increase the spices.
Pillowy soft on the inside, delicious all the way through. Mmm....buns.....
Ninja edit: these are meant to be burger/sandwich buns, but if you want dinner rolls, feel free to cut them into 8 or 10 pieces instead. Also, if you prefer seeded buns, brush the tops with an egg wash right before baking and then sprinkle the seeds on top.
14 g whey protein isolate (source)
57g carbalose (source) Also, this is the lowest carb version available. Do NOT use carbquick))
118g resistant wheat starch (source)
42g vital wheat gluten (source)
.5 tsp xanthan gum (source)
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces, at room temperature
3 tbsp sour cream, at room temperature
.5c warm water
.5 tsp syrup (corn syrup, maple syrup, or honey will do)
2tsp instant yeast
Note: if you are new to keto breads, a high carb syrup is used to feed the yeast. Don’t panic! It gets eaten by the yeast and turned into tasty yeast farts. None of it remains.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl, except the yeast.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or other bowl), combine the water, syrup, and yeast. Use the paddle attachment, but keep the dough hook around, you’ll need it later. Turn on the mixer for a few seconds to dissolve the syrup, but don’t worry if there’s clumps in the yeast. Add in the eggs and sour cream, and turn on the mixer again to combine. Don’t worry again about clumps of yeast, clumps gonna clump.
Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl, then turn on the mixer again, medium speed. After about a minute things should be coming together. At this point, start adding in the butter, a piece at a time, letting each piece get mostly incorporated before adding the next (10-30 seconds between each addition). This goes much quicker when the butter is soft, so it’s important to not skip that step.
Let the mixer run for about a minute after the last bit of buttery goodness, then scrape down the sides. Switch to the hook, and run the mixer for about 6 minutes. The dough should be soft and not particularly sticky (it may stick to your hands, but will come free with little effort). If it’s too sticky, try kneading it with the hook for a bit longer before you try adding more flour.
Once the kneading has been done, place the dough into an oiled bowl, turning it to coat, cover the bowl, and let it rise until it’s nearly double. It happens quickly – for me it’s usually about 20-30 minutes. Dump the dough out on a work surface and divide into 6 portions. Shape those portions into flattish balls, tucking and pinching the dough on the bottom if needed.
Place the dough balls on a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment, setting them about ½” apart. Let them rise again until nearly double, again about 20-ish minutes for me (YMMV). Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375, and when they’re ready bake them for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool before cutting them open. Then do cut them open and stuff them with deliciousness!
Nutrition per bun: 212 cal/7.2g fat/14.5g protein/21.4g carbs/17.4g fiber/4g net carbs
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup Isopure Zero Carb Whey Protein Isolate
2 Tbsp Flax/Chai Seed Ground Mix
A non-measured amount of (to taste) :
Chicken Bouillon, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder
Preheat oven to 325F
I melted the mozzarella in the microwave, mixed in all other ingredients with a spatula. I put 'dough' in-between 2 pieces of parchment paper (see, I learned my lesson from the pizza dough). I rolled it out as thin as I could with a wine bottle (because I could not find my rolling pin...... don't judge me). I cut dough into triangle shapes and placed cut outs on a parchment lined sheet tray. I put them in the oven for about 8-10 mins, turning half way.
I ended up making 2 batches. The first was too thick, and tasted very powdery for my liking.. so my mom took those. The thinner the better they are. I ate them with some guacamole from Whole Foods. They were pretty good, but I can't wait to find my rolling pin to try to get them a bit thinner.
With the ingredients I used, the only real carbs are from the mozzarella cheese.Everything else was <1 carb.
The recipe I was going off of is from Sugar Free Londoner (I changed the recipe to use the things I had in my kitchen rather than buying something new. We all know keto can be expensive at time.)
Edit : Words.
Edit 2 : This is the Protein Powder I used, and I purchased it through amazon.
This is the Fried Chicken Recipe I originally purchased it for.; I used it to make chicken cutlets for chicken parm, which was absolutely delicious and my non-keto SO did not know the difference.
this one actually but I'm sure any 100% whey protein isolate should work. I really, really like how fine this one is though. Same dry, fine texture as flour (and 0g carbs)
I'm the same way. Sucralose give me a headache. I use 100% Whey protein:
I use the Isopure Zero Carb. Amazon has many flavors and several sizes. Their "Subscribe and Save" prices are the lowest I've found.
Last time I posted a link to a product people bitched because ugh, marketing even though I had deleted the /ref= tag from the amazon url.
A simple "What kind did you use, brands can vary in consistency quite a bit?" probably would have been more constructive than "it's useless to people," but whatever.
I figure if we're doing this, I might as well make the links easy to click, ya know? Enjoy these exciting products. You're welcome. Glad to have helped.
That'll probably work for your recipe, but it seems like an unusual choice, given that you were price-focused in your post.
Whole Foods has the Tera's Whey listed at $33.99 for 12oz.
Isopure Zero Carb Whey Isolate is $13.99 for 16oz on Amazon.

I use isopure protein powder, unflavored, which you can get at Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Isopure-Protein-Friendly-Unflavored-Packaging/dp/B00SCO8AA8/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-drs1_0?crid=2IH0SNC45MB9W&cv_ct_cx=protein+powder+unflavored&dchild=1&keywords=protein+powder+unflavored&pd_rd_i=B00SCO8AA8&pd_rd_r=937d8432-78f6-4737-88f2-01c2e8b3b6fe&pd_rd_w=7rO5u&pd_rd_wg=KC4sS&pf_rd_p=c33e4373-edb9-47f9-a7e6-5d3d6a7a4ad0&pf_rd_r=VSTWA0K24TWMAFRN7ZRP&psc=1&qid=1607271551&sprefix=protein+powder%2Caps%2C218&sr=1-1-5e875a02-02b1-4426-9916-8a5c26cd5a14
This has helped my husband, but he is at the point where he doesn't drink much anyway. I know you can add it to EVERYTHING, (potatos, gravy, etc) to up the protein received
I have tried this from amazon and it has almost zero flavor
Amazon has it, as well.
This is the protein powder I used, and I purchased it through amazon.
