About Diet Whey Matrix Protein Powder
We discovered that this protein shake is high in sugar, which is not ideal for those who are already overweight, as they tend to have impaired insulin sensitivity. However, if you’re working out with some resistance exercise, this product would be perfect for replenishing glycogen stores as a post-workout shake.
Alternatives with less sugar and higher protein content include PhD Diet Whey. While PhD Diet Whey is more expensive it has higher protein and fewer calories per serving.
We also recommend checking out our Best Protein Powders guide, which is updated annually to reflect the best products we’ve found.
Matrix Diet Whey Protein Powder Ingredients and Macros
- 178 calories per serving
- 22.6 grams of protein

- Green Tea & Acai Berry Extract (commonly found in fat burners)
- Taurine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, CLA, 5-HTP

It’s certainly worth noting that this is a lot of sugar for a diet protein shake (12.6 grams per serving). This is more like a meal replacement or a post-workout shake rather than a diet product. If you’re exercising, this product would be suitable to have after working out.
