What Is The Difference?
PhD have dominated the Weight Management scene for a long while with the very popular PhD Diet Whey. This has been a staple in many people’s weight loss plans, with many people using it as a meal replacement. Whilst PhD’s Diet Whey still boasts a larger range of flavours, PhD Diet Whey Lean MRP will feel very familiar, introducing the following 4 flavours to the new range– Double Chocolate, Vanilla, Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel.
So how does Diet Whey Lean MRP differ?
Diet Whey Lean Meal Replacement strips back the ingredient list, having less emphasis on Flaxseed and CLA whilst maintaining the Protein Blend of Milk Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk) and Soya Protein Isolate. The addition of Wholegrain Oats, Vitamins and Minerals to this shake is where the main difference lies, along with the inclusion of Matcha Tea and L-Carnitine to aid with weight loss goals.
By adding the Low GI Carbs (wholegrain oats) alongside various vitamins and minerals you create a much more nutritionally balanced shake, with less emphasis on keeping calories low and protein high. This shake contains 17.7g carbs compared to the 3g found in PhD’s Diet whey. This push’s the total calorie content to 210kcals per shake, over twice that of one serving of Diet Whey. Sugars are kept low by avoiding the use of Maltodextrin or Fructose as a carbohydrate source, with only 0.8g sugar per serving which again is lower than that of Diet Whey.
Whilst the protein percentage is slightly lower than Diet Whey at only 50% protein, the idea as stated, is to create a nutritionally balanced meal as opposed to a lean muscle building powder. That isn’t to say it doesn’t contain adequate protein at 26g Protein per 55g serving, around 7g more than PhD’s Diet Whey in a single serving.
So which product is best for you?
Diet Whey Lean MRP is perfect for anyone looking to consume a balanced meal on a tight schedule, where time does not allow for a full cooked meal. It will help to keep you fuller for longer and aid in the weight loss journey you may be undergoing. PhD’s Diet Whey on the other hand is aimed more towards gaining or maintaining muscle mass during a weight loss plan.
With that being said, why not gain the benefit of both? There is nothing wrong with using PhD’s Diet Whey Lean MRP as one meal during the day whilst using PhD’s Diet Whey as a post workout shake.
To conclude, if you are looking to shed some fat for the summer by including a Meal Replacement in your routine and diet plan then this is the perfect product for you.
