The Biggest Loser Designer Whey Chocolate Deluxe: Only 50 Calories!

Pros:Great taste, all natural, low in calories.

Cons:Small container/small scoop, lower in protein than other powders.

The Bottom Line:

I recommend Designer Whey only for those who are inactive to moderately active, and not for serious body builders.


Recently I came across a magazine article expounding on the weight loss benefits of whey protein powder, and of course I wanted to try it. I probably spent a good hour going through all the different brands before deciding to go with Designer Whey. I chose it for two reasons. One, it only has 50 calories per serving. Two, it has natural chocolate flavoring.

The Nitty Gritty

Designer Whey Chocolate Deluxe comes in a ten ounce canister, scoop included; 16 servings per container; is all natural (sweetened with stevia); has 6g of protein, 6g fiber, and 1g fat.

Also...
% Daily Value
Vitamin C 120%
Vitamin E 2%
Riboflavin 30%
Pantothenic Acid 30%
Calcium 7%
Thiamin 30%
Vitamin B6 30%

For those of you that don't like chocolate (can't imagine!), Designer Whey is also available in Red Raspberry and Vanilla Bean.

Suggested blending methods: Blender, Shaker Bottle, and Stir with Spoon.

Retail price is generally around $16.00, but I found it for $10.34.


My Experience

When this product first arrived in the mail, I was surprised by how small the container was, and it was only 2/3's full. The scoop is about half the size of the scoop in the soy based brand I was previously using. So technically, if I doubled the scoop, I would end up with the same amount of calories. The good news is, you won't have to double the scoop to make a great tasting shake.

I use the blender method, because it's the only method that doesn't leave clumps in the shake. Instructions tell you to use 1 scoop per 5 fluid oz. of water or milk and blend with 1-2 ice cubes. This is not a lot of liquid, less than 1 cup, and is thin in consistency. Using this method alone leaves me hungry, so I add 1/2 frozen banana, 5 fluid oz of almond milk, and one scoop Designer Whey. This shake is deliciously filling. I drank a shake this morning at 7 a.m., and four hours later, I am just beginning to feel the pangs of hunger. Not bad at all for 5 fluid oz.

As far as the protein goes, Designer Whey has less than half the protein that I'm used to getting from a protein powder. Six grams is really a paltry amount. The whole point of a protein drink is to help build muscle, keep you satisfied, and speed up metabolism. I'm not sure that 6g, 12% daily value, will make a significant difference. The 6g of fiber, on the other hand, gives you 24% daily value, and that is pretty nice.

When it comes to Designer Whey, there is the good (great taste!), there is the bad (only 5 fluid oz.!), and there is the ugly (6 measly grams of protein!). If you are an active athlete, this powder is probably not for you. However, if you are a moderately active or inactive individual, The Biggest Loser Designer Whey Chocolate Deluxe may be more to your liking.
