PhD Diet Whey is a protein powder that has 90 calories and 17g of protein per serving. Pretty good macros. I’ve been around the block with diet protein powders. I’ve tried my fair few and I know what I like (smooth and tasty) and what I don’t (glupey, slime like textures).
I like to have a protein shake when I get back from a run or workout and I always add a scoop to my morning bowl of porridge. I also use protein powder in baking and no-bake treats. For me, protein powder has to work as a shake and an ingredient.
As I was in the market for a new protein powder that I’d give it a try. Here is my PhD Diet Whey review.
PhD Diet Whey review as a shake
I mixed my PhD Diet Whey Protein powder with 100ml of milk and topped up the rest of the shaker with water. I never like a full watery shake, but of course, you can use 100% water.
The shake mixed up really well using my hand shaker. I usually like a thicker consistency so I often blend my protein shakes in the Nutribullet. But this was actually fine mixed by hand.
It was easy to get down and didn’t have a slimy or powdery texture. Really smooth.
Sometimes I add a few extras to my shake, especially if I am having it in place of breakfast. I add things like blueberries, oats, nut butter, cinnamon and banana. This also boosts the calories a little if you are someone who is looking to wants to bulk up a little.
PhD Diet Whey review in porridge
I added half a scoop to my cooked porridge. It is best to add your powder to cooked porridge. It does make your oats really thick, so depending on the consistency you like your porridge, you may want to add more water/milk. I like mine so thick that you could probably lay a patio with it.
I have this every morning for breakfast, whether I’ve worked out or not. It helps make porridge that little more filling to help me last until lunch… ish.

Final verdict – my PhD Diet Whey Review
For 90 calories and 17g of protein I would definitely recommend this protein powder. Smooth, easy to drink and tastes great.
I’ve also used PhD Diet Whey in baked and no-bake treats. It’s always worked really well. One particular recipe I love is healthy Millionaire Shortbread. These are so easy and perfect post-workout snack.
I found a pretty reasonable price for PhD Diet Whey was on Amazon.
