Product Studied: Project B Naked Meal
We at Project B emphasize on being bare and transparent of our product ingredient and formulation. We have an extensive product development stage, carefully engineer every product to ensure they work. As a part of our groundwork, we reach out to a number of independent professionals for a blind test to compare the nutritional information and ingredients of our formula with the available brands in the market.
Under this review, we reached out to independent dietician to compare the nutritional information and ingredients of meal replacement products from two other brands: Herbalife, Soluxe and Project B, to see if there was any way to improve it. This was a blind test, that Herbalife's, Soluxe's and Project B's names are never disclosed during the creation of the reviews. The dietician was not paid or given anything to endorse any of these products.
This product has been studied and fine-tuned for over 30 months before the formulation is confirmed. We took another 6 months to test its efficacy profile on over 33 individuals before it is being delivered to you. This part of the report reviews the product formulation, where we have another part of the report displays the results of the efficacy profile.
The results in brief
Rank 1: Project B Naked Meal
Rank 2: Herbalife Formula 1 Nutrition
Rank 3: Soluxe Original Pea Protein
Who are the formulators
We work closely with Ms Isla during the study and selection of the meal replacement ingredients. Ms Isla works professionally full time as a nutrition and diet consultant for around 8 years servicing one of the hospitals in the United Kingdom.
Here, we took over 30 months to finalize the product formula, where ingredients are ensured at their optimum effective dose, complement with its product efficacy profile and portfolio.
Who have we approached
We wanted to carry out a fair review of our product, so we have invited Ms. Lexi, an independent dietician with 4 years of working experience in the private consultant firm. We believe Lexi has the capability in sounding a credible opinion in view of her profession. We look forward to gaining some insights from the review generated.

The information we provided for review
Below shows the information the dietician was provided:
It was a totally blind test. The dietician was paid for her time producing the reviews, but not to endorse or favour any product. The reviews below aren't perfect, and we are the first to admit such. However, Lexi is expert in her field, highly professional and have provided some great insights to highlight between the three products.
The following review produced have not been edited or altered in any sense, it is the original piece that the independent dietician has provided. This review is conducted based on 3 brands: Soluxe Original Pea Protein (Product A), Herbalife Formula 1 Nutrition (Product B), Project B Naked Meal (Product C)
Dietician: Lexi (Ms)
Meal Replacement is defined as the primary intended purpose of providing the consumer with several of the main constituents in a normal diet, such as carbohydrates, fats, protein and vitamins and minerals, with controlled quantities of calories. In this review, I will be theorectically dissecting the macro- and micronutrients based on the ingredient formula provided.
Product A: Has only protein constituent, lacking the carbohydrate and fat component to make up a normal diet.
Product B: Has the longest list of ingredients, with the inclusion of some flavors and additives ingredients for better user compliance and mouthfeel. For the purpose of this review, we will only look into key ingredients for a competitive comparision in terms of nutritional profile.
Product C: Does not contain any additives or fillers. Briefly, the ingredient profile looks well balanced.
For an easier overview in comparison of each brand's nutritional profile, I have compiled a breakdown the parts of Protein : Carbohydrates : Good Fats for this review,
The winner is clear and the table above supported my opinion. Product C has the best nutritional profile, followed by Product B, then Product A as the least favourable. Product C outcompete the other two products and satisfy the definition of meal replacement with all aspect of protein, essential fats, carbs and vitamin & minerals. Other than completing the profile with a good proportion of protein, carbohydrates and good fats, Product C has also incorporated with a powerful antioxidants, Astaxanthin; and a great functional extract, Tremella Extract; whichdefinitely are some plus points.
Author's Note: We had no contact with Lexi before the test was conducted, and she had never heard of Project B until after the results were gathered. These results were entirely independent and blind on her behalf.
