Default Low Carb Protein powder

I'm starting low carb again today and wanted a protein powder. I bought what the label and reviews said was very low carb (3 grams per scoop) protein. The protein is a Whey protein (16 grams per scoop), and other protein is derived from vegetables and fruits, which I didn't realize until I received it. Well I tried it first thing this morning and it is very sweet and makes me feel like I've "messed" up before I've even started. Should I stop drinking it. I am very motivated and really want to do well. Help!

When I use protein powder drinks, I always think of it as a meal replacement. But they don't satisfy my hunger and I end up eating anyway. Now I stick with iced coffee with heavy cream.

I found it to be to much protein for me and stalled weight loss so I gave protein powder up until I am at goal and then might change my mind, that said, what I found was the protein drink helped me when i first got started on Atkins, sort of kick started me into controlling what I was eating but wasn't long and strictly went to real foods as everyone suggests here. I'm doing same as Chica iced coffee with unsweetened almond milk, davinci, cold brewed coffee and heavy cream. This keeps me full for many, many hours.
