Tell us about the science....

Whey Protein Concentrate satiates your appetite better than carbs or fat. Studies show that milk proteins such as whey may satiate your appetite better than some other protein sources.[1] However, having a high enough protein intake in general is the most important thing. Eat plenty of dietary protein from food sources like meat, eggs, and fish, and supplement with whey protein to max out your protein intake. Protein is even more filling when paired with fiber. Make a meal replacement shake with whey protein powder, fruit, and some leafy greens to fill up on minimal calories.

In a placebo-controlled study on whey protein and dieting, one group of dieters was given a whey protein supplement, and the other group was given a placebo. The whey protein group lost more fat than the control group, and kept more muscle mass.[2] It’s tough to diet for weight loss while keeping your hard-earned muscle mass but the amino acids in whey protein support muscle protein synthesis. This can help you retain a larger muscle mass even when dieting. As muscles burn calories for energy this can in turn help with weight toss. Casein is very similar but the difference is that Casein releases protein over several hours rather than immediately like Whey.

The simplest, yet most effective version of a product created naturally by the body. Backed by hundreds of scientific studies, creatine is proven to help build lean muscle, which in turn burns more fat. Thus, it is seen as an indirect contributor for weight loss.

Apart from many other health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and anti-oxidative properties, Taurine is an excellent fat burner that boosts your metabolism and energy production. Human studies show that 3 grams per day of taurine for 7 weeks reduced body weight significantly in a group of overweight or obese (but not-yet-diabetic) adults.[3] Subjects saw significant declines in their serum triglycerides and “atherogenic index,” a ratio of multiple cholesterol components that predicts atherosclerosis risk.

Lysine indirectly supports lowering of bad cholesterol, burns fat, and directly encourages production of collagen for healthy skin, muscles, and joints. Collagen can build cartilage, connective tissue, and bone. Lysine aids in this formation and at the same time can stop the breakdown and excretion of collagen. Lysine also naturally creates carnitine, which breaks down fatty acids and LDL cholesterol.[4]

Natural anti-inflammatory and helps keep skin healthy and smooth. Glycine increases adiponectin (a protein hormone), which can help with weight loss.[5] Adiponectin enhances glucose utilization and fatty-acid combustion in the liver and muscle.

A precursor for muscle growth. Glutamine combats fat storage and minimises the breakdown of muscle. For more information, see our Oblivion information page.

CLA is a naturally occurring product in the human body. By supplementing the natural levels, CLA aids fat loss by breaking down fat deposits. CLA helps reduce the negative effects of unhealthy eating by inhibiting the absorption of additional fats. Basically, CLA is a special type of fat that reduces our absorption of other, unhealthy fats.[6][7]

Research shows acai berries are high in antioxidants and may possibly fight against disease.[11] This ingredient provides a more holistic weight loss approach with secondary health benefits and has been added for its healthy fat properties.

Many studies show that green tea increases the rate of fat burning to help you lose weight. The caffeine and catechin content are shown to help stimulate activeness and boost weight loss. The polyphenols found in green tea are the answer. These incredible polyphenols are more commonly known in the scientific community as flavanols or catechins. Green tea has been shown to activate the body’s thermogenic fat-burning activity.[8] In one study, an optimal amount of catechins (690 mg) ingested for 12 weeks significantly reduced the subjects’ total fat area, waist circumference, skin fold thickness, and subcutaneous fat area. It has also been shown that there is a synergistic interaction between the caffeine in green tea and the catechins (more specifically EGCG) in green tea, which increases the body’s use of calories as energy.[9] Moreover, the combination of caffeine and EGCG found in green tea was further shown in the British Journal of Nutrition to significantly increase the resting metabolic rate.[10]

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between Diet Plus and a normal whey protein?

Diet Plus has been designed exclusively for females and with the female body in mind. It contains protein for recovery, muscle building and drinking it can help you reach your daily protein macro requirement. Diet Plus also contains added ingredients (see “tell us about the science . . .) that help boost metabolism, keep skin healthy and, with a calorie deficit, can help you burn excess body fat. 

Why is Diet Plus better for women?

Diet Plus is fundamentally better for women because of the added ingredients. These ingredients together (see “tell us about the science . . .) and in the perfect amounts can help women in a calorific deficit lose fat, in a calorie surplus build muscle, improve skin health and boost metabolism and energy levels.

What makes Diet Plus better than other female whey products?

Diet Plus has more positive benefits than other female whey products as we have included not only Whey Protein but also other tried and tested metabolism boosting ingredients such as Green Tea extract, CLA and Glutamine. To make the product even better, we have also added Taurine and Creatine to boost energy. With these ingredients and more working synergistically, Diet Plus is more than just female Whey product. Its the best Female Whey Protein product.

Is it suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

Diet Plus is suitable for vegetarians, but as it contains whey and milk proteins, is not suitable for vegans, unfortunately.

How often can I drink Diet Plus?

You can drink diet plus as often as you wish. For breakfast as a smoothy, after a workout for muscle repair, or to hit your protein macros during the day.

We recommend between 1.6g – 2.2g of protein per kg of body weight for the average fitness enthusiast.

Will I get big drinking Diet Plus?

Women have significantly less testosterone than men, so it’s unlikely women will get ‘big’ from using Diet Plus. Diet Plus has been carefully engineered to help build lean muscle mass. It is not meant for bulking.

Can I drink Diet Plus if I am pregnant?

Yes, diet plus is perfectly safe to drink during and after pregnancy.
