  1. Are Chris & Heidi still promoting the Vemma products? I used their products in the past but know they had legal issues. It didn’t leave such an aftertaste like other powders and was wondering if you can suggest a similar protein powder.

  2. Is this protein powder still available? I can’t find it on the vemma site. Just a meal replacement shake which is not low carb.

    1. Hi Teresa: You can contact Vemma for the availability of this protein powder: In general for protein powders, Chris and Heidi recommend low-fat, low-carb powders with around 20 grams of protein per serving. This would serve as the protein portion for any meal. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi,
    Hope I’m not a bother but What is considered low fat and low carb with 20 gram protein? How many grams for fat and carbs is low?

    1. Hi Pam: Chris and Heidi recommend low-fat, low-carb powders with around 20 grams of protein per serving. πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Heidi and Chris,
    Thank you both for your answer. Now I know what to look for in the stores who sell this kind of products. Have a nice week!

  5. Hi Heidi and Chris,
    I live in the Netherlands and I was asking myself if you know a good protein shake/powder, which I can buy in the Netherlands. I can’t find the Chris and Heidi Powell shake in any store in the Netherlands and I am not sure which other brand is good to use. I hope you have some advise for me. With kind regards, Mari?lle

    1. Hi Marielle: In general, look for low-fat, low-carb protein powders with around 20 grams of protein per serving, and this can serve as the protein portion for any meal. Hope that helps!

  6. Are net carbs in protein shakes the same as “actual” carbs? I have a plant based protein shake that has 15 carbs, but only 3 net carbs, is this considered low carb or would this be one I should use on high carb days? Thank you.

  7. Heidi did you drink a protein shake while pregnant? If so which one or ones did you drink? Everyone one I’ve looked at so far have said not to drink if pregnant or expecting to be.

    1. Hi Britney: It’s best to discuss any dietary supplements with your healthcare team while you’re pregnant, and then follow their recommendations. And congratulations!

  8. Any way of posting the carb counts. I’m diabetic, on the Powell bode program and on insulin…. Only on for two weeks and have adjusted my insulin intake down by 50, yes 50 units a day. Of course the HC days are a bit more but this is fabulous! I personally need to know the fiber and carb count so I can properly adjust my insulin… Thanks!
