Does SlimFast Make A Keto Shake?
The answer is a big YES! Recently SlimFast introduced a brand new line of premium products dedicated to the ketogenic diet. Among these are the SlimFast Keto Meal Shakes to Go which are a pre-made shake ready to drink.
What Is A SlimFast Keto Shake?
The SlimFast Keto Shake is ready to drink shake made of creamy chocolate milk with zero added sugar. The fat comes from pure MCT oil, so it is very good for your keto diet. It is also gluten free and lactose free for those that are intolerant to gluten and lactose respectively.

How Many Calories Are In A SlimFast Keto Shake?
One pack contains 4 bottles of SlimFast Keto Shakes or servings. And each serving or bottle contains a total of 180 calories.
If you are on 2,000 calories a day diet, that means that one SlimFast Keto Shake bottle contains precisely 9 percent of your daily calories count. So one bottle is pretty damned packed with calories. Keep in mind that these calories are keto-friendly as they mainly come from fat and proteins and as such one bottle of SlimFast Keto Shake is a true low-carb beverage.
How Many SlimFast Keto Shakes A Day Can You Drink?
Since one SlimFast Keto Shake bottle contains 180 calories which represent 9 percent of a 2,000 calories a day diet, it is possible to drink multiple bottles a day. Depending on your meal schedule and when you want to drink the keto shakes you can drink up to 3 bottles per day.
For example you can drink one as a snack in the middle of the morning 2 hours before having lunch if you feel hungry. You could drink a second one during the afternoon around 3 pm. And you might even drink a last and third one either to replace your dinner or as a keto nutritional complement.
How Many Carbs Are In A SlimFast Keto Shake Bottle?
From the nutritional composition above we can see that a SlimFast Keto Shake bottle contains 7 grams of carbohydrates.
It is important to note that this is the raw amount of carbs. Indeed among these 7 grams of carbs there are 5 grams of dietary fibers. Dietary fibers are the part of a plant your body can’t digest. That means these 5 grams won’t be metabolized by your organism and should not be counted toward your daily carb count.
There are also less than 1 gram of sugars so we don’t need to take them into account. In the end we calculate the carbs that are counted toward your daily carb count like that: 7 grams total carbs – 5 grams dietary fibers = 2 grams net carbs. This is this the number, 2 grams, that should be counted towards your daily carb count as this is the net amount of carbs that your organism will metabolize and transform in glucose to source the energy it needs to operate normally and in a healthy way.
Do SlimFast Keto Shakes Give You Diarrhea?
Consuming too much regular keto shakes can lead to digestive problems, among them are diarrhea or the opposite, constipation. In fact constipation is far more likely to occur than diarrhea. That comes from the fact that keto shakes do not contain a sufficient amount of nutritional fibers to ensure a proper and healthy digestion. And an insufficient intake of fibers can lead to constipation.
On the other hand a keto shake might cause diarrhea only for certain persons with medical predispositions. People who suffer from lactose intolerance might be subject to diarrhea: indeed when the milk contained in a shake reaches their intestine tract it can not be properly processed and your body might reject it causing an episode of diarrhea. People who can’t digest gluten might also experience diarrhea: as their body is faced with gluten to digest and it is not able to do it, again the gluten might be readily rejected in the form of an episode of diarrhea.
However it is important to note the the SlimFast Keto Shakes are gluten-free and lactose-free. So the diarrhea risks mentioned above do not apply to you if you consume exclusively the SlimFast Keto Shakes, but they might apply if you consume a regular keto shake made with milk and gluten.
Please keep in mind that the constipation risks still apply though. Indeed your daily intake of dietary fibers needs to be sufficient for your intestine tract to properly manage bowel movements. If that happens to you we recommend to look at these 3 awesome recipes of keto shakes to fight constipation.
