Look at each product and ask yourself why am I taking this? What is the benefit?

Get your diet in order and chances are you don't need a weight gainer (home made is far superior and I wouldn't count it as a supplement if home made).

Bcaa? Do I really need them if I am already eating 200g of protein as plenty of cals? Is it a waste of money to add 20 g bcaa? Yes IMO

ZMA total waste I think

Liver tabs unless on aas again I don't see the point.


aas?

Steroids.

You may need liver support if on a harsh oral AAS e.g dianabol or superdrol etc. If not then its a waste of cash!

What kind of stack should I do when bulking....
I'm taking creatine, Protein, Weight gainer, Bcaa, Multi Vit and Omega 3....
Should that be enough or should I add Zma or dessicated liver ??


Bought a tub of Dessicated liver powder once. Very cost effective compared to the tabs, but my god the most foul smelling and tasting substance on the planet! I couldnt find anything to mask its taste!

If you really want to add something for sleep, try ordinary Zinc tablets instead of splashing out on ZMA, take about 40-50mg. a lot cheaper and nice dreams.

Have you ever tasted pure Calcium Ascorbate Crystals (100%pure Vit C) literally the worst thing i can think of!! Horrible stuff altogether but a great diuretic when taken with dandelion root!

Mmmm.... cottage cheese with a scoop of protein and some mixed berries blended is gooood!

Haha funny you should say that i had a tin of mackerel the other day and loved it after skipping it for years!

My new favourite last meal is:
3 TBSP coconut milk
2 TBSP flaxseed meal
1 cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
½ scoop whey
½ cup fresh raspberries
and a few drops of vanilla essence

works out around 340 cals and the taste is incredible ha! High fat, high protein, low carb! You cannot go wrong coming up to summer!

I'm making an order off bulkpowders but am looking to cut costs, so i want to buy unflavoured whey but what does it taste like? As long as its drinkable i don't care.


Personally I'd pay the extra few quid and get flavoured. The unflavoured tastes like sour milk and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

The money you save on unflavoured, you will probably need to spend on chewing gum or mints anyway!

I buy unflavoured and buy MP liquid flavourings - you can then change it up regularly, cheaply and you can also use them in a multitude of other things.
As we speak I am eating a pot of cottage cheese with toffee flavouring as my dessert - its kinds like angel delight ( I've never actually tasted angel delight so take this with a pinch of salt )

BTW - I bought some PW Jaffa Cake stuff as a replacement for some chocolate etc the wife ( and I ) might eat in the eves and I cannot seem to get rid - it's just vile no matter what you mix it with.

Just checked their prices and its a joke. Even with that offer they only end up roughly on par with most supplement shops. €39.95 for AmiN.O. Energy and €68.95 for a tub of whey... farcical. They're decent on the singular bars and sample sachets though. CGT-10 isn't a bad price either if you get it for half price.
