Protein World is a well known British company that came to public attention by coining the Beach Body Ready advertising slogan. The company provides a range of protein shakes and supplements aimed at making you look and feel great by weight loss, muscle building, and more. Protein World supplements are available worldwide.
Protein World Carb Blocker is advertised as a strong and powerful carb blocker, that provides a way to enjoy a cheat meal without worrying about gaining weight. According to the advertising, it is an award-winning fat burner, even though it is not actually a fat burner so it is hard to see why Men’s Health came to this conclusion.
That said this supplement contains a blend of white kidney bean extract and garcinia cambogia in high quantities, both of which contain substances that block the digestion of certain carbohydrates. However, it is important to know that regardless of strength this supplement will not block all carbohydrates or any other fattening substances such as fat and sugars (simple carbohydrates) so you will need to keep that in mind if you want to lose weight.
Each bottle contains 90 capsules, or 45 servings, and you are advised to use before a “cheat meal” rather than as part of your daily routine.
Potential side effects may include gas, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, dizziness, headaches, nausea, mild allergy symptoms such as a skin rash or runny nose, and changes to blood sugar levels.
Protein World Carb Blocker is not expensive. Buy from the official Protein World website and one bottle of 90 capsules (45 servings) costs £14.99. UK standard delivery is £2.99.
The same sized bottle costs $20.99 to US customers. Standard US shipping costs $10.00. All products are shipped from the UK with estimated delivery time between 5 to 9 days.
UK customers can also buy Protein World Carb Blocker from a range of outlets on the High Street as well as online.
1 x bottle of Carb Blocker costs £14.99 from Holland and Barrett, but £21.46 if you buy via Amazon UK.
If overdoing the pasta, potatoes, and rice is your specific weight gain issue, you may find that Protein World Carb Blocker helps weight loss. However, the truth is that it will not block all carbs, only the healthier ones, such as those present in starchy foods such as potatoes, pasta, vegetables, and whole grains.
Carb Blocker will not block simple carbs such as sugars, breakfast cereals, cakes, dairy products, pastries, and convenience food with high sugar content. Neither will it have any effect upon dietary fats or alcohol, so it is not really going to have much effect upon the consequences of a “treat meal” unless your idea of a treat meal is a big bowl of potatoes!
In our opinion, this supplement may work for some users but although the Carb Blocker name is appealing it is all a bit misleading and unlikely to be as effective as described.
We know you will hate us for suggesting this, but the obvious way to cut down on carbs is to cut down on carbs!
Overall, we do not recommend Protein Carb Blocker to the Watchdog readers.

If you struggle with overeating carbs, Protein Carb Blocker looks to offer a solution that will enable you to still eat fattening carbs without adding to your weight!
The supplement contains white kidney bean extract and garcinia cambogia extract which naturally contain compounds called amalyse inhibitors. These prevent digestive enzymes in your body called Amalyses from breaking down carbohydrates into smaller unit sizes so that they can be stored by your body as fat and energy. When this digestive function is prevented from working, the carbs are too big to be absorbed and are simply left undigested and expelled from your body as waste.
Carb blockers do not block ALL carbs and do not work on other dietary components such as fat. Amalyse inhibitors only block complex carbs such as pasta, rice, starchy vegetables, and legumes, all foodstuffs which do have some health benefits. However, your carb blocker will not block simple carbs like those present in sugar, dairy products, and some fruits, because these molecules are already broken down so can be easily digested. This means that refined foods such as cakes and pastries, most breakfast cereals or anything high in sugar will not be blocked by the carb blocker.
The final ingredient in this formula is chromium, a trace mineral that helps the body regulate glucose by improving insulin function.
Protein World is a well known British company that specialises in supplements to make you look your best! According to the company information, Protein World is,
A brand for all who want to step up, put in the work, and enjoy the rewards. Everyone hates walking in to a clique-y fitness class, or waiting in line outside of the club all night. Our Pure, GMO free products are designed to help everyone capture the motivation and spark of being at the top of their game.
You can also find a wide range of weight loss supplements such as appetite suppressant Protein World Hunger Buster.
Protein World has become well-known thanks to an iconic advertising campaign that featured a drop dead gorgeous model in a yellow bikini asking the question, “are you beach body ready?”. This attracted a lot of negative attention but as always in advertising, the attention of any kind is good and it turned the “Beach Body Ready” slogan into a catchphrase.
Although this was a few years ago and Protein World has since toned down the body shaming angle, this one campaign brought the brand to a wider audience.
Protein World supplements are available from a wide range of outlets including Holland and Barrett, Boots, Amazon, and outlets across the world. You can also buy directly from the Protein World website.
According to the advertising, Protein World Carb Blocker is an award-winning supplement.
It is described as a,
Revolutionary unique Carb Blocker formula using only natural Ingredients to provide double the strength of normal carb blockers.
Garcinia Cambogia and high levels of chromium contribute to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
The award is named as Men’s Health ‘Fastest Fat Burner 2017’ award, voted for by readers. This is a bit strange because technically, Protein World Carb Blocker is not actually a fat burning supplement! Source
If you are trying to lose weight but struggle with the occasional blowout, Carb Blocker may help minimise the damage. However, this supplement will not block all carbs. It only blocks complex carbs such as those present in wholegrains, rice, pasta, potatoes, vegetables, and legumes.
By contrast, it will not block simple carbs such as sugar, syrups, sodas, or overly refined food with high sugar content.
So you do run the risk of blocking foods which are healthy in favour of high sugar carbs which are not.
The advice is that this supplement will help you “cheat” on special occasions is a bit misleading. Most fattening meals are high in fats and sugar so unless your idea of a treat meal is a bowl of potatoes, it probably will not offer much help. In addition, it will not block the sugars present in fizzy drinks, wine, or beer.
The best way to reduce the fattening impact of carbs is to not eat so many carbs and to change your habits to something you can live with long term. Changing your diet to include more fibre and complex carbs such as whole grains and simply reducing portion sizes of carbs is always going to be the best policy.
There is nothing in Protein World Carb Blocker that makes it any better than countless other carb blockers on the market. In addition, the fact that it won best fat burner 2017 is a mystery when this supplement does not even work in this way.
But if carbs are your particular issue, rather than fat or any other dietary issue such as alcohol or sodas, you may find it helps occasionally.
Serving size is equal to 2 capsules.
Carb Blocker may cause some side effects.
White Kidney bean extract is known to cause mild gastrointestinal issues such as,
Garcinia Cambogia is known for side effects including,
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking prescription medication.
