"Not bad, but not amazing. I tried USN and Mutant afterwards, where the taste was better and may even have yielded slightly better results. "
"This makes a really nice shake. I use a blender and put 50ml of almond milk in with two ice cubes and 300ml of cold water. I’ve tried Chocolate Peanut, Mint Chocolate, Banana and Chocolate – all very nice, though it’s thicker than most other powders I’ve tried. It has definitely helped me with weight control."
"The Diet Whey mixes well, but take care not to overdo the quantity as it can go a bit thick and fluffy. Strawberry Delight is a good, natural flavour that doesn't taste too manufactured or ‘chemical’. It's good value from Tropicana as I got a free shaker too (can never have enough)!"
"I've tried a few different protein powders and this is the best chocolate flavoured one so far! A very, VERY good product. Plus, I bagged it for half the price compared with what it’s sold for on some other websites."
"This mixes really well (I tired Choc Peanut). Not overly nutty in flavour, but goes down really well, nonetheless.
This product doesn't seem to contain caffeine (it's not on the label), so it shouldn't be a problem. Although green tea polyphenols can have a stimulant effect, so if you are quite sensitive to stimulants you could still have a possible interruption in sleep.
Yes, just be aware that the Diet Whey has a small amount of caffeine in it (but not much), so you're getting caffeine from both products.
Two scoops would be better to utilise after a workout and we recommend having 2 scoops 1 hour before training too to keep a steady stream of amino's in the blood.
As you would any other protein product. Morning, pre/post-workout and before bed or/and in-between any meals..
Iso-7 is a moderate carb lean-gainer all-in-one product, so is decent when trying to get lean. Diet Whey will work very well if you take it before meals and then eat less at the meal or if you replace meals with it.
You could just use the V-max pre workout with the Diet Whey and have Diet Whey again post-workout if you would rather just stick to two products. Finish the IGF-1 and then go with the Diet Whey going forward.
It's difficult to build muscle and lose fat at the same time because you need extra calories to gain muscle and to cut calories to lose fat. So you should decide to either get lean or gain muscle. To get lean, the Diet Whey is excellent. For lean muscle gains, try Synergy Iso-7.
Hey Scott. you can use this product when ever you need to top up your protein intake. Take one hour prior to training and one serving immediately after.
Generally, this product is designed to help with weight loss and is used by people who are on a calorie-restricted diet. So unless you are new to training or getting back into it after a layoff, it's doubtfull you can gain any significant muscle mass on a low calorie intake - you need lots of calories to gain muscle. The quality protein in this product will help you to retain more muscle whilst dieting though.
Yes, as long as you maintain a high in take of protein and gradually drop the carbs and unhealthy fats then you are on the right track. This would be a great product to stack with one of our leading fat burners like :- Grenade Hydroxycut Animal Cuts Lipo 6 black.
Lean meats and vegetables are your best bet when combining healthy food with a diet shake like PhD Diet whey. Limit sugar intake and general carbohydrate intake overall.
Absolutely, this is done very commonly.
It depends upon how high in calories your meals are, your training, your body size, your metabolic rate, etc. Diet Whey is perfect for between meals to keep hunger at bay, increase metabolism and enhance muscle repair. If your meals are high protein and moderate carbs and your are exercising diligently, then you should have no trouble losing weight. Yes, no problem using carnitine with Diet Whey.
Green tea extract often contains naturally occurring caffeine which can range from 10-35 mg depending on the source. Caffeine however is a very useful tool for fat loss.
Diet Whey should be used in conjunction with a well balanced diet and exercise programme. Taking Diet whey would not be expected to cause any type of side effects. Each individual has a different ability to burn calories so you should aim to lose 1 - 2 kilos a week depending upon your body size. Obviously cutting excess fat and especially carbs from your diet and doing intense exercise will accelerate any results. Please refer to product label for full information and directions of use.
On the product it states it has a Low GI index because of the Waxy Barley starch. It doesn't however state a number, but what constitutes a low GI is something that has 55 or less.
Hi Zoey, I have checked the nutritional label for PhD Nutrition Diet Whey, and according to this, all flavours within this range are suitable for vegetarians.
PhD Nutrition diet whey has no caffeine in neither has the Maxitone sculptress protein shake (Size 700g), however the 21 serving Maxiton Sculptress capsules have a high amount of caffeine in (459mg). PhD Diet Whey is one of our biggest selling and most reviewed diet product, we've had tremendous feedback from customers and would highly recommend giving PhD Diet whey a try.
Yes. You can use Diet whey in the way you have set out and can also take 1 serving around 1hr before exercise.
Yeah definitely that is what its designed for. Ideally use in between meals according to your requirements and goals.
Firstly, you need to do heavy weights as it will burn more calories than light weights, and do cardio after the weight training. The fat loss tablets I would recommend are http://www.tropicanafitness.com/weight_loss/nutrex_lipo6_black_120ct.htm With regards to the protein shakes I would recommend PhD Diet whey, it has fat loss ingredients in it so it will help you lose weight, it s a meal replacement, however you do need to eat 5-7 meals a day
The Diet Whey is better as an MR, so stick with that and the HT+ is more versatile for use any time. So just stick with the Diet Whey at lunch or as a snack and then use the HT+ otherwise.
Weight loss of a healthy type would be between 1-2lbs per week. Having this twice daily could ensure you maintain more muscle tone whilst losing body fat. If you are gluten intolerant your food should consists of quality protein, meat, fish with vegetables and carb sources such as sweet potato or yams.
DIet whey would be perfect with your oats or breakfast in the morning just one scoop, and other than that, you could use it before bed or whenever you need a protein hit through out the day, as it has very low carbs it won't impact fat storage too much, and with added fat burning properties in there with CLA, L-carnitine and green tea extract it can only aid your fat loss.
Hi, Diet Whey is designed to be used as either a meal replacement, or inbetween meals as a high-protein supplement, to stabilise appetite and provide extra nutrients. It also contains ingredients which can aid weight loss, i.e. green tea extract and essential fatty acids in the form of flaxseeds. However, I advocate using Diet Whey as a supplement inbetween three healthy, balanced meals that are based around lean proteins, slow-release carbohydrates, healthy fats and of course, vegetables and fruit. It is recommendable that you take include one serving of Diet Whey post-workout. A sensible eating regime, coupled with regular exercise is the best method for weight loss; there is no 'quick fix' or 'magic bullet' I am afraid. Slowly but surely will prove to be the most efficient way to lose weight and maintain this loss. It is not necessary to go to the gym in order to exercise - what matters is consistency - doing some form of regular exercise will help you to achieve your fitness goals. Please bear in mind that you are more likely to stick to a diet/exercise regime that you enjoy. I the above information answers your query.
Hi, Eating smaller, regular meals throughout the day is absolutely ideal - this will provide your body (most notably, your muscles) with a steady supply of nutrients, and will help to stabilise blood glucose levels, and thus, appetite. It is important to establish a routine that you enjoy and that works for you, as this is a steadfast way of ensuring you will stick to it and can achieve your desired results. Allow me to suggest adding a small portion of protein to the fruit you are eating - some cottage cheese; a small handful of nuts/seeds - this will ensure a steady release of energy and will add additional, valuable nutrients. I hope the above information assists with your query.
Phd diet whey is designed to help fill the gaps between meals or supplement a meal that is lacking in high quality protein. You can use diet whey anytime you like day or night. Diet whey is extremely low in carbs so there will not be a large amount of energy present to fuel your workout. You may want to consider adding Phd V-max pump into your pre-workout nutrition as this will give you everything you need to see you all the way through your workout without giving you any unwanted carbs. Carbohydrates are essential post training as this speed up the rate of recovery as well as decrease muscle soreness for the following days.
Simply take exactly how is described on the side of the container by the manufacture for best results.
Phd do not list a direct caffeine source in Diet whey but it dose contain green tea extract which may or may not contain caffeine. You can try to contact the manufacturer (PhD) but it may be proprietary (so they may not disclose this information).
The same price. Diet products will not be receiving the VAT increase.
Take 1-3 servings daily of 1-2 scoops depending on how much you require. Diet whey can be used any time of the day or night and in-between meals.
From what you have said we recommend you simply keep doing what your doing. As long as your loosing 1-2lbs a week then your on the right track. 12 weeks is a realistic time frame to see a noticeable difference.
Yes, the two products mentioned would be an ideal stack and would even recommend adding in Phd Lean Degree to help increase your calorie burning rate.
You should fit the protein shake ideally with breakfast (1scoop) and then most definately post workout (2scoops). Any other times is up to your discretion, if you need a protein hit at any time have a scoop. Ideally you should be getting 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight to maintain lean muscle tissue.
The best combination to use would be a quality fat burner and a diet whey protein to really help with those stubborn areas. Grenade, Lipo6 black, Hydroxycut hardcore, Animal cuts are the best selling fat burners on the market and would compliment Diet whey nicely.
I would advise that you take approximately two servings daily; once within thirty minutes following exercise, and the other, to bridge any nutritional gaps during the day, e.g. mid-morning/afternoon. I hope this has addressed your query.
No waiting time required.
I would advise taking PhD Diet Whey twice daily - once in the morning and again following your work-out for the best results Good luck with your regime!
Yes, this is an excellent fat-burning protein formula - helps with recovery from exercise and supports muscle and keeps you feeling full and metabolism boosted.
We wouldn’t recommend mixing the two products directly together but it would be a good idea to take your diet whey around 60-90 minutes prior to your workout and your pre-workout supplement around 10-20 minutes prior to training. Please refer to product label for directions of use.
There are 40 servings in the 2kg.
Hello, Whilst that is a fairly healthy regime that you have outlined, please be careful that you do not under-eat. You may find that you will benefit more from eating a decent breakfast, with a moderate carbohydrate content included (from a good source, e.g. oats); a lunch based on protein, such as a chicken salad or omelette, and an evening meal of say, baked salmon with steamed vegetables. I would advise that you have your shake in the morning with breakfast (as opposed to instead of), and have a shake post-workout, with fruit. You could still eat the cottage cheese/yogurt late afternoon/early evening, or try peanut butter with veggie sticks, or a small handful of nuts. Generally, there are two occasions throughout the day when eating carbohydrates is advisable - especially when you are aiming to lose body fat and maintain muscle. This is in the morning, for breakfast, and post-exercise. Glycogen, which is glucose stored in the muscles, is depleted both after exercise and following substantial periods without food. If you eat carbohydrates (moderately) at these times, they will simply replenish glycogen stores, and not be converted to surplus fat. Carbohydrates are essential for fuelling the muscle; though it is tempting to cut carbohydrates in the belief that it will facilitate a more rapid weight loss, if your carbohydrate content is too low, this may actually hinder your performance. You may find that you tire more quickly, because there is simply not enough glucose available to power muscular contractions. It all comes down to clever timing of carbohydrate intake, and choosing the right sources (hence, oats in the morning and fruit following exercise). If you do eat something like porridge oats for breakfast you could always mix a scoop of Diet whey in with it (just a tip). Eating consistently will aid your fitness goals and help to regulate your appetite. Moreover, it does not really matter when you eat specific meals, so long as they are spaced out; you do not go for very long periods during the day without food, and your protein intake is adequate - this is especially important during a weight loss programme, to prevent loss of valuable muscle tissue. I hope you find the above information useful. If you have any further questions or require clarification on any matter, please voice these queries to: firstname.lastname@example.org Kind Regards, The Supplement Store
Yes this product is suitable as it acts like a low carb meal replacement with fat burning ingredients contained inside to help metabolise fat whilst following a good exercise and nutritional program.
Absolutely, Take the Diet Whey 1/2 hr before breakfast and/or lunch and/or dinner and take the 2:1 after training and otherwise keep lowering your sugars and starchy carbs until you start consistently dropping weight.
Yeah this protein is fine for vegetarians
It is advisable that you measure one-two level scoops of Diet Whey, and mix this with 175ml of water (per scoop) or more, until the desired consistency is reached. I would advise using this supplement inbetween three balanced meals, twice daily, with one of these servings (ideally) taken post-exercise. For example, you could eat breakfast; a Diet Whey shake mid-morning; lunch; a Diet Whey shake mid-afternoon (following exercise); evening meal and a light, pre-bed snack. If you use one scoop per serving, a 1kg container will last longer, yet still provide key nutritional benefits to aid your weight loss/toning goals. Used like this, Diet Whey will help to stabilise blood glucose levels and thus, appetite, as well as aiding fat loss due to the important ingredients it contains, and preventing the breakdown of vital muscle tissue. I hope this information has addressed your query.
Yes you can use this as a meal replacement providing your diet is sufficient in essential nutrients.
Yes, drink it before cardio as your breakfast. Then have it again 30 minutes before lunch. You may want to have a high-protein snack between breakfast and lunch. Both the Diet Whey and Mutant Whey have BCAAs (found naturally in high amuonts in Whey Protein). Then have a normal, healthy, high-protein dinner.
If this is your only protein supplement you are taking, then yes, first thing in the morning and after weight training and other intense exercise. Ensure you eat at least 2 grams of protein for every kilo of your body weight daily to maintain muscle.
PhD do not list a direct caffeine source in the ingredients list in this product, but it does contain Green Tea Extract which often contains naturally occuring caffeine.
Yes you certainly can, they will compliment each other.
Hi Paz, Yes, that's fine, as long as you are also having another meal or two at some point later in the day. Keep adjusting your intake so that you gain very slowly and this will help insure that you gain minimal fat along with your muscle gains (or even lose fat if you are training very hard and consistently).
Whey protein naturally contains calcium, so it doesn't have to be listed on the label in most circumstances. This product probably contains between 50 and 100mg of calcium per scoop.
In the range of about 200-400mg
Hi Liza Firstly, apologies for the late response. Protein has the dual role of reducing appetite and increasing your metabolic rate and improving recovery from exercise. So all of your meals should contain at least 20 grams of quality protein from meat, chicken, fish, eggs, dairy. Whey protien is particularly good, so add it to any meals that don't have enough quality protein and have it right after workouts too. This will keep you feeling fuller, increase metabolic rate/calorie burning and improve your results from exercise.
Yes, there are no animal-sourced ingredients in this product.
