Sci-MX Diet Shake is designed as a high protein snack for between meals for those looking to lose fat. Each serving (50g) provides 20g protein, 19g carbohydrate and 3g fat and a total of 190kcal/795kJ. The protein provided is a blend of faster absorbing whey protein and slower absorbing milk and soy proteins for a sustained release of amino acids.
Diet Shake claims to aid fat loss and curb hunger between meals, however, the carbohydrate provided is predominantly maltodextrin and starch, high GI carbohydrates, therefore other sources such as fruit, veg and whole grain products would help curb hunger more effectively. Furthermore, when compared to slower digesting carbohydrate sources, high GI carbohydrates will also stimulate higher levels of hormones that are associated with fat storage, such as insulin.
This supplement contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which having been thoroughly researched and tested on humans appears to help promote the loss of body fat. Sci-MX also provides 60mg green tea which is known to have a significant antioxidant effect that may improve recovery from training and also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, but there is no evidence that green tea will help promote fat loss.
Diet Shake also contains Actilight® prebiotic fibre, which has various potential benefits on gut health, but unfortunately there is no evidence that it helps promote fat loss, reduce circulating insulin levels or help to curb feelings of hunger in humans. The blend of micro nutrients found in the Vit-MX-Trim found in this supplement are all involved with the metabolism of macro nutrients (proteins/carbs/fat), however there is no evidence that supplementation of these micro nutrients will help promote fat loss, increase metabolism or improve recovery from training.
- To provide a protein snack between meals, relatively low in carbohydrate and fat.
- Contains CLA which can help promote fat loss.
- 60mg of green tea may help reduce muscle breakdown after training.
- Vit-MX-Trim and Actilight® prebiotic fibre may both help promote gut health, although there is no evidence that they will aid fat loss or reduce hunger.
Who’s it for
Sci-MX Diet Shake is designed for those participating in regular training and whose goal is fat loss. It is primarily those for those who want an extra protein snack between meals or before bed, but is not ideal to be used as a pre/post workout shake.
