PhD Diet Whey Powder is marketed as a premium high protein blend that is low in fat, salt and sugar. It comes from PhD Nutrition and is available in many flavours. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a low calorie diet and exercise. It is not like other dietary supplements for weight loss that claim to function as appetite suppressants, fat burners or fat blockers.

According to the official product site, at the time this review was written, Diet Whey is suitable for men and women who are following a weight management nutritional plan, gym enthusiasts who want to lose body fat and control their intake of calories, anyone who wants to replace a meal with a low sugar or high-protein shake, and those seeking a high protein dietary supplement.

While the ingredients of each flavor of the PhD Diet Whey Powder differ slightly, they all typically contain similar ingredients. For example, the following are the ingredients found within the Belgian Chocolate flavour (according to the official product site): PhD premium protein blend: (Whey* Protein Concentrate, Milk Protein Concentrate {Of which 80% is Micellar Casein}, Soya Protein Isolate), Fat reduced Cocoa Powder, Waxy Barley Flour, Golden Brown Flaxseed Powder, Thickeners (Acacia Gum, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum), Flavouring, Conjugated Linoleic Acid Powder (Contains Milk Protein, Soya Lecithin, Vitamin E), Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Green Tea Extract, Sodium Chloride, Sweetener (Sucralose).

To prepare a single serving (25 grams), users are instructed to add 1 scoop of powder to 175ml of ice cold water and shake or blend for 10 seconds. For a “super serving”, they are to add 2 scoops of powder to 350ml of ice cold water and blend or shake for 10 seconds. It can be taken at any time of the day, up to 3 servings daily, to help users obtain adequate protein.

Pros

PhD Diet Whey Powder is available in several flavors including: Belgian Chocolate, Chocolate Orange, Strawberry Delight, Vanilla Crème, White Chocolate Deluxe, Cherry Bakewell, Chocolate Peanut, Chocolate Mint, and Banana.

It contains only 91 calories per 25g serving and, since it is a powder, it is easy for anyone to take, especially those who have trouble swallowing pills.

Cons

For starters, it is important to point out that nothing in this supplement will cause weight loss. However, to be fair to the manufacturer, they don’t make the claim that it does.

Although this product does have many flavors, some customers have complained about the taste of this product. Furthermore, while it might be low in calories, this product does contain salt, sweeteners, and flavoring ingredients, which are not exactly healthy.

Furthermore, the product information on the official PhD Nutrition site does not provide any safety information or warnings. However, some customers have complained of gastrointestinal upset. Therefore, potential side effects of which you should be aware include, but are not necessarily limited to: abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, fatigue, headache, and thirst.

Another concern regarding PhD Diet Whey Powder is that it could lead to yo-yo weight gain. The reason is that if it is not used correctly in conjunction with a low-calorie diet, it could result in more fat gain because you’ll only end up adding more calories to your diet. Additionally, once a user is no longer taking the product, there is a good chance that the weight that they lost will return. The reason is that they didn’t make any permanent lifestyle changes to their diet; they only replaced food with the drink.

Prior to taking any product to replace a meal, you should first run this intention by your doctor to make sure it is a safe solution for you.
