"Excellent flavour (Strawberry Cream) and a cracking price for the large bag: £51. Super-fast delivery, too."
"I used to use this before switching to Extreme Whey. When I analysed it and saw it was well below the protein content they claimed, I felt ripped off. I can't believe people still trust PhD. "
"I have been using PhD Pharma Whey for over two years now; having tried others along the way, I always go back to PhD. Great tasting flavours – my current favourite is Chocolate Mint. Speedy delivery and good price. Will be buying again when I run out. "
"I started using this again after giving it a break for a while. Wish I hadn't. It caused a bad stomach upset and I didnt feel good for days. Don't know if I got a bad batch or something's changed in the ingredients but I won't be buying again."
"All of the PHD range is qaulity but this is the best whey product I've tried. Mixes well, doesn't taste like chemicals like some powders. I used USN IGF for years but not sure I'll be going back to it after tryig Pharma Whey HT."
Increasing your protein intake at the expense of sugar, starchy carbs and fat is the easiest way to lose fat, so yes this product will help. Probably the best product for this is Eat Smart by iSatori - it is high in protein and patented fibres that decrease hunger. When taken between meals or 15 - 30 min before meals it causes you to eat less.
Whey protein is just a protein derived from milk, which has been found to be the most effective protein for recovery from exercise and for muscle growth and repair. It is also absorbed the fastest and has many health benefits. So go ahead and use the whey 2 or 3 times per day regardless of your age (I assume you're over 4 years old?). Be sure to take it with a big whack of carbohydrates (maltodextrin, dextrose, sugar, waxy maize, etc) right after training.
Adding extra BCAA's would be ideal with this product because you would want a steady stream of amino acid's in the blood stream during the course of the day. So having your BCAA's 20 minutes before training would be ideal and having the Pharma Whey after training. Something to supplement with these would be creatine by PhD, as this is known for it's muscle building capabilities and effect on strength levels.
Feel free to use Phd Pharma whey whenever you need an extra boost in protein. Perfect for anytime of the day. Consume 1-3 servings per day every day.
You can use either 1 or 2 scoops and as many servings as you think are necessary depending upon your body size, how hard and often you're training, if you trained on that day and how much protein you've had from other sources that day. Use 200 to 250 ml water for every scoop. You could also mix with milk if you desire the extra protein and calories.
Both are very comparble with less than 2 grams of carbs or fat.
Take protein with meals if the meal is not high in protein or take it between meals if not. Most importantly, take it after your workouts with a big whack of carbs (about 75 grams - you can buy cheap carb powders that can be mixed in water to take with or after your protein shake). Take the creatine after workouts (at least 5 grams but not more than 10) and take it just before your biggest meal or with a protein shake on "off" days. Take the Hydroxycut according to label instructions - first thing in the morning and just before lunch.

It is perfect for losing fat without losing muscle. It is difficult to lose fat and gain muscle on ANY product because gaining muscle requires that you eat a lot of calories and losing fat requires restricted calories. If used as a meal replacement often, ensure that you are using a multivitamin or eating some fruit and veg. For maximum results, use 2 to 4 scoops per day - more on training days and more on days that you don't eat much protein. It is very similar to IGF-1 but is all whey protein, whereas IGF-1 is a combination of whey and other proteins.
Yes, and adding a good amount of carbs (50 to 100 grams of waxy maize or maltodextrin etc) will further help with creatine retention in the muscle and recovery from exercise. Click "Bodybuilding" in the top left of the website and then click "Carbohydrate Powders".
Increasing your intake of quality protein (whey is the highest-quality protein) will help you achieve your protein requirements, which are difficult to hit without supplementing. Increasing the percentage of protein in the diet will help you lean out a bit and support better muscle growth and recovery. This should result in significant improvements in your muscle definition.
It's best used with breakfast (unless you're getting several eggs or another high-quality protein with breakfast. After training (and with a big dose of carbs). With snacks between meals. You can stack it with any fat burner. Some of our best are Hydroxycut, Xendrine, Cuts, etc. Not sure why you would have been warned off Hydroxycut - it's the biggest-selling fat burner in the world. CLA works great for some but not for others, any reputable brand will be fine to use.
Higher protein diets help with fat loss, exercise recovery, bone strength (if you get plenty of calcium) and muscle growth. You can mix the shake early in the day and as long as you use a clean shaker and keep it refrigerated (as you would with milk), it won't have a negative effect on the protein (it may have some effect on the flavour but that would vary depending upon the product).
PhD Pharma Whey is our best-selling whey protein and is tasty, high-quality and low in carbs and fat, so excellent choice. This will allow you to hit your protein requirements for growth and recovery. If you aren't gaining weight, you will have to either eat more food or buy a weight gainer product to hit your calorie requirements. Also, creatine is a "no brainer" as a safe and effective way of gaining lean mass without any fat gain. If you have a fast metabolism, want maximum gains or have trouble gaining muscle, use a creatine product like Cell-Tech or Mutant Cre-X12.
The best fat burner-type products we sell currently are Xenadrine RFA-X and Animal Cuts. They contain green tea and other known fat burning ingredients. You are definitely right to keep your protein intake high. Creatine prevents muscle loss when dieting and can slightly improve your cutting results but that's about it. For the best diet to achieve maximum success, see The Can’t Fail Diet article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/95
Go with the Lean Body for Her. Other "best MRPs" for fat loss are Eat Smart by iSatori and Diet Whey by PhD.
With most guys, this is the last bit of stubborn fat that comes off the body when dieting down. All you can do is keep doing what you're doing but add a bit more or higher intensity exercise, increase the protein and cut the carbs a bit more (but don't forget to carb up or have a cheat meal every 4 or 5 days). It could be a bit of water but that can only be addressed by watching the sodium and a few other pre-contest tricks that time and space dont allow for.
It look's like you have a great variety of supplements and would recommend continuing with what you are doing. You can replace Nitrotech with PH pharma whey but just be aware that Pharma whey does not contain creatine like the nitro nor dose it contain as much protein per-serving.
Yes, Pharma Whey is very low in carbs and fat and high in protein. Teh best diet strategy is to keep the protein high and keep cutting the carbs and fat until you are losing about 1 kilo per week (more in the first few weeks or if you are very over-weight). You could also try a fat-burner like Animal Cuts, Xenadrine or Arson. To further minimize muscle loss, take a creatine product (and don't listen to any "experts" who may tell you that it makes you hold water). For the best advice on losing fat and maintaining maximum muscle, see the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/95
Yes, the tub states "Suitable for Vegetarians"
There is no limit to how much proteint the body can 'absorb' in a person with a healthy gut. The only limitation is on how much of that protein gets 'retained' in the muscle. Any excess beyond your requirements will be eliminated in the urine. Your requirement will depend upon how many calories and how much protein you have eaten and how recently and on when/how intensely you last trained, your body size and other factors. Your stomach upset sounds like it is something to do with the protein but it is impossible to tell for sure. Many of us here use the Pharma Whey with no such negative effects and we love the taste, quality and low cost. You can try it with more water and this will not affect the quality of the protein. You should also try sipping it very slowly. If this doesn't work, try another brand - Whey Maxx is good and EAS Myopro has a similar nutrition profile and quality and also tastes very good and is about the same price.
Waxy Vol is made of "low GI" carbs, so not best for post-workout. You can use any of the maltodextrin or dextrose products (click on "Bodybuilding" in the top left of the website and click on "Carbohydrate Powders"). One product we suggest is Waxy Maize Maxx.
Most of us agree that the strawberry is best tasting (if you like strawberry) - it's fantastic!
This product doesn't contain added vitamins or minerals. It is natually high in calcium and contains other vitamins and minerals naturally. whey protein is used by bodybuilders and sportsmen because it is the best source of protein and amino acids to assist in muscle building and repair and not because it contains other nutrients.
Yeah that would be fine, a slower digesting carbohydrate source other than fruit would be more suitable to take pre-workout to ensure you have steady blood sugar during your training, consider oats with the shake.
Unfortunately Phd do not list the cholesterol level on this product. We recommended contacting Phd direct for further information.
Pharma Whey HT does contain top quality whey which is absorbed fast upon ingestion and is low in carbs which is perfect to lose bodyfat. However when trying to encourage lean muscle growth, carbohydrates are a must. This product would be fine to use but do ensure you are taking some form of carbohydrates throughout the day as well as post workout (Maltodextrin post workout powder unflavoured for example) - Sweet potato during the day. Be sure to monitor your progress daily and weekly to ensure you are making the gains you are working so hard for.
Pharma whey will help you increase muscle mass as will Synergy even though there are differences between the products. Synergy has more carbs in, it also has added creatine, a test boosting stack and L-glutamine which are proven to help increase strength, recovery and increase muscle mass. Pharma whey is stacked with BCAA's which will keep your body in an anabolic state which promotes muscle growth. You do need to remember however that these products will supplement your diet and not replace it, so if your diet and supplementation is very good you will acheive results that you desire.
No feel free to stack the two together thats fine.
If you're just starting, you can gain muscle whilst losing fat at the same time but after a while you'll have to focus on doing one or the other. A better product for you would be Synergy Iso-7 as it has more calories and contains creatine. This will give you more rapid gains in strength and muscle mass. It is still fairly low in calories and carbs so should yield lean gains. Take it 1 or 2 times daily (and 1 serving always after training). Adjust the Synergy and your protein and calorie intake according to whether you are gaining muscle. If you start gaining too much fat cut back on the carbs a little.
To put on muscle mass, unless you're just starting out, you'll have to gain some fat along with the muscle because you need extra calories to gain. So stick with a weight gainer or eat lots of food and use the Pharma Whey. When it comes time to cut, just use a high protein diet (Pharma Whey) and gradually cut your carbs until you're losing 1 or 2 pounds per day. You should avoid fat burners at your age.
It is perfectly fine if you can consume some sort of carbs with it in the form of maltodextrin post workout for example. Your diet also would be the main thing ensuring you don't gain too much weight (unwanted body fat) so monitor that weekly to ensure you aren't over consuming calories or consuming less than you need.
Yes but maybe try Phd Diet way for better results and stack this with Phd CLA
We are unable to confirm this taste as you explain but if you find this to be an issue then please contact PHD direct for further information.
Hi, The product you are referring to is 2.2kg, though it also comes in a 908g size; both are listed under the 'Nutrition' section, so that you can easily access the information, plus available sizes. Pharma Whey does have a lactose content. Alternatively, CytoSport Muscle Milk is free from lactose.
If it is stored in a dry place that is a fairly constant moderate temperature and it is well sealed, it will last until the sell by date.
No, opt for a mass gainer like Reflex instant mass or PVL Mutant Mass.
Carbohydrates are the main transport system for nutrients. Even when looking to increase muscle mass or decrease body fat carbohydrates are still essential post-workout to help replenish glycogen levels and speed up recovery rate. The reason you are feeling sore could be the lack of carbohydrates post workout. Nitro-tech is fantastic post-workout but is better taken with a simple sugared carb source like maltodextrin as creatine uptake will also be increased. Synergy ISO-7 will also be great post-workout as this is an all-in-one product which contains all the essentials for post-workout recovery.
They are very similar in products contained however with the stack, you can ensure that you are reaching your adequate amount of protein, glutamine, creatine and BCAAs without overspilling on the carbohydrate content that is contain within the Synergy. On the other hand, synergy has a few little extras contained in there such as a test booster.
Yes, as the extra added fat burning ingredients will help speed up you metabolism. Also would be beneficial for you to stack it with a decent fat burner like Grenade.
This usually only happens with the strawberry flavour. It doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with the product, it's just the nature of that flavour in the flavouring system they use.
I'm not aware of a white lid being used on Pharma Whey but it's possible they changed it and didn't inform us. The ones in our warehouse seem to all have silver lids.
One stop extreme has the carbs that you will need to build muscle, Pharma Whey HT has very little carbs and for that reason you should go with the One stop. It also had added BCAA's, glutamine and creatine in there to enhance muscle recovery and keep your body in an anabolic state.
This is brilliant to help repair muscles after a workout and boosting metabolism however this product alone without a good nutritional programme would not give the desired effects, it will aid in acheiving those goals.
1 scoop is 25 grams
It seems to have up to 2g of lactose per serving. If you are looking for a lactose free whey then take a look at : AST VP2 Whey Isolate MuscleMeds Carnivor
The nutritional information provided is applicable to water - not milk. You would get a small amount of extra protein if you were to mix this with milk (approximately 3-4g per 100ml serving), but please be aware that 18.5g of protein is an adequate quantity for your body to utilise at any given time (any more than 20-30g, dependent on individual body composition is simply surplus to the body's requirements). Remember that whilst you may be adding protein, milk is also a source of lactose (which is a sugar) and fat (depending on which type of milk you choose), as well as other nutrients, which will affect the overall calorie content. I hope the above information assists with your query.
This product is designed to increase quality protein intake and is our best-selling product but if he has a fast metabolism and is skinny and only 16, he needs a weight gainer product to meet his calorie needs. Weight gainers are perfectly safe as all ingredients are foods designed to be a convenient, low-cost meal that is high in calories, high-quality protein (higher than anything you can buy at Tesco), with healthy fats and fibre added. He has to keep upping his calories until he begins to consistenly gain weight
An increased protein intake through out the day which would result in a steady release of aminos in the blood and protein for recovery after your workout.
Hi Patana, It has a clear plastic seal that fits tightly around the lid but most products don't have a further inner seal.
