What Is Keto Feast?
Keto Feast Is a Meal Replacement Powder or MRP for short. As the name proposes, MRPs are intended to be consumed when you don’t have the opportunity or time to prepare a full meal, yet at the same time need to give your body all the supplements it needs to remain solid and invigorated. Think protein shake….just a Keto friendly one.
MRPs typically contain protein, carbs, and fats. While this is fine for those individuals on normal eating regimens, the high carb content implies that most MRPs are not appropriate for keto .
On keto, you need to limit your carb consumption to 20-30 grams per day. By limiting carbs, your body begins to burn fat for fuel….imagine that, turning you body into a fat burning machine! Wish it were that easy….your body can’t burn fat for fuel, and it needs to change fat that you eat and fat that you’ve accumulated into ketones, which is processed thru the liver… this the body can burn for energy. The process burns up energy too…like a 2fer sale! When you get your body burning ketones for energy rather than carbohydrates you are in ketosis, which is where the Keto Diet gets it’s name
Keto Feast is made by US-based Ancient Nutrition and is Keto friendly…just in case you didn’t get that from the name. It’s low in carbs, high in fat, and contains a moderate measure of protein. This matches the macronutrient proportions of the keto diet precisely. Just as being keto diet-accommodating, Keto Feast additionally contains a few ingredients that are useful for your general health & well being.
Keto Feast is both keto and paleo diet friendly and comes in three flavors – vanilla, maple syrup, and chocolate….I am reviewing the chocolate flavored one now…though Maple Syrup might be next on the wish list!
So how do I use this in my Keto diet?
My first inclination is ALWAYS to eat whole foods…lean meats, green leafy vegetables, healthy fats….hands down…that’s the plan every day. However, life happens and sometimes I’m on the run and can’t prepare a meal…Keto Friendly protein powders like Keto Feast are a tool I will use to add to a morning coffee or when I’m making fat bombs…love fat bombs…that’s a story for another day.
While I typically add some to my coffee in the morning (way less than the huge measuring cup that it comes with), I have followed their instructions and
taken a full cup and added it to almond milk, blended it up in my Ninja blender (love that thing)…then hit the road and felt comfortable until dinner. I’ve dabbled with intermittent fasting so I’ve become accustomed to waiting 16 hours or so between meals…Keto Feast shakes or coffees will definitely break a fast and are for non-fasting days.

WHAT IS BONE BROTH OIL?
In traditional bone broth, the golden fat that rises to the top of the smoldering pot is rich in bone broth oil.
Organic bone broth oil is non-rendered, virgin quality organic bone broth oil—not schmaltz, which is the rendered chicken fat powering traditional Jewish cuisine. The rendering process is a food processing technique which dries the material and separates fat from the bone and protein, which yields a concentrated fatty substance.
However, organic bone broth oil comes from a traditional bone broth process. When ready, the bones are strained out, while the remaining golden liquid is transferred and the oil gently separated.
Keto PROTEIN also features MCTs from coconut. While there are four primary MCTs contained in coconut, Keto PROTEIN focuses on caprylic acid, also known as C8.
Additionally, Keto PROTEIN features specially selected herbs and spices, collagen peptides and Organic Coffee Cherry Extract.
Among the herbs and spices in Keto PROTEIN are organic ashwagandha, ginger, black pepper and long pepper. Ashwagandha, for example, is an adaptogen that has a long history of use. Likewise, the combination of ginger, black pepper, long pepper has been consumed for thousands of years in traditional Ayurveda.
Collagen is also important, and KetoPROTEIN offers collagen peptides.
Additionally, Keto PROTEIN has Organic Coffee Cherry Extract.
All in all . . .Keto PROTEIN is an ideal protein solution for the ketogenic dieter, weekend warrior, busy executive, student, gamer or anyone looking to boost mind and muscle power.
Providing high-quality proteins and fats from chicken bone broth and coconut MCT’s caprylic acid plus energizing antioxidant and adaptogenic herbs, Keto PROTEIN is designed to take your performance to the next level!
I certainly could have paraphrased this…but I think they did a good job of describing the nutrition and ingredients…like features & specs, the most important part is to get it accurate…I’ll add my assessment towards the end.
How To Use Keto Feast Properly?
Keto Feast suggested use is…
Mix one heaping scoop from the huge measuring cup, and blend in with 12 to 16 oz of water, almond milk, or coconut milk. It’s recommended that you drink one shake per day accompanied with one or two meals…at nearly 450 calories when you factor in 16 oz of almond milk…you can see that this is to be used in moderation and in place of a meal, not in addition to a meal.
So what are my thoughts?
This is certainly not a product that I use every day nor do I recommend it. This is a tool to use when I’m on the run and I want to make sure that I’m not starving half-way thru the day because I don’t have time for a proper meal. The flavor is pretty good….a 7.5 out of 10 for me, the chocolate flavor is a little too sweet sometimes. It works really well when I use a few teaspoons to give my fat bombs that chocolate flavor I crave. Ancient Nutrition is one of those companies that makes a bunch of products that help me along my Keto/weight loss…this is one that I recommend as a tool in the tool box.
Last thing is price….typically lists for $60 plus dollars for the 25.2 oz container…but I’ve found it on Amazon for $37 including free shipping
