Low carb meal replacements, as the name suggests contain low carbohydrate content. The carb content of these low carb meal replacements range from 0 carbs to only 3.5g of carbs per serving, with the exception of Labrada Lean Body carb watchers with 12g of carbs.

Low Carbohydrate Meal Replacement for Low Carb Diets

Finally, the third category consists of the "Low Carb Meal Replacement Shakes". There are 4 meal replacements compared here. The protein content in these MRPs range anywhere from 20g up to 42g per serving; however, the key selling point of these meal replacements is their low carb content - these typically range anywhere from 0g carbs to a little over 10g of carbohydrates per serving. Meal replacements in this category are best suited for individuals carefully watching their daily carb intake, or is on a low carb diet.

Although these are low carb carb meal replacements, their calorie per serving are typically lower compared to high protein and lite meal replacements; however, being low carb meal replacements does not restrict their protein content. Take Labrada Lean Body Carb Watcher MRP for instance, it contains 12g of carbs, and a whopping 42g of protein per serving, and its total calorie per serving is 230.

Compare this to something like EAS Myoplex Carb Sense, which contains a more moderate 25g of protein, 5 grams of carbs, and only 150 calories per serving.

Take a look at the comparison table below of Low Carb meal replacements:

Low Carbohydrate Meal Replacement Powders Cost # of
Fat (g)
Biochem Ultimate Lo Carb $13.95 15
0 80 $0.93 $0.0465
Labrada Carb Watcher LB $76.95 42pk
1.5 230 $1.83 $0.0436
Myoplex Carb Sense MRP $39.95 20pk
3.5 140 $2.00 $0.0799
Myoplex Carb Sense RTD $8.49 4pk
0.5 150 $2.12 $0.0849

Low Carb MRP

Looking at the chart above, Biochem's Ultimate Lo Carb ranks first with only $0.93CPS, Labrada Lean Body Carb Watcher is second with $1.83CPS, and EAS Myoplex Carb Sense and Carb Sense RTD comes in 3rd and 4th with $2.00CPS and $2.12CPS respectively.

At first glance, the Biochem ultimate low carb may seem like a steal, but if you look closely, its serving size is also smaller compared to the other three low carb meal replacements. While the Labrada Carb Watcher MRP is almost double in CPS, but it actually has a lower CPGP due to its high protein content. On the down side, the Labrada Low Carb meal replacement also has the highest carbohydrate content of the bunch.

Both EAS Myoplex Carb Sense and Myoplex Carb Sense ready-to-drink comes in 3rd and 4th with the highest CPS and CPGP, with the Carb Sense RTD coming in last with a slightly higher cost compared to the original Myoplex carb sense. Again, there is a higher cost associated with the convenience of ready-to-drink packs.

So which low carb meal replacement is best for you? Only you can decide. But with the above comparison chart, you have a more objective comparison of these low carb meal replacements. You can easily compare their protein, carb, and fat content per serving to see which one best meets your low carb needs, and choose the one that best fits with your diet.
