Supplements

A lot people have been asking me what supplements I take or recommend. I have tested and tried a lot of different stuff to see what works (for me) and so I can hang my hat on it a truly recommend it. So here goes..

General

  • A good multi vitamin
  • Omega 3 oil
  • Glucosamine

Protein

For me its all about My Protein True Whey it tastes great, mixes well and most importantly costs about 36p per serving (for 20g of high quality protein I don’t think it can be beaten)

other than this I have tried and very much like Kinetica Whey Protein, I purchased this from Cardiff Sports Nutrition, they are fantastic and SUPER knowledgable, if you need anything I highly recommend you give them a call.

For Night time Casein protein I’m still researching what I like, so stay posted.

Creatine

There are many different ones out there but I just go for cheap and cheerful Creatine Monohydrate I got mine from MyProtein again but any will do. I just add it to my post workout drink.

Carbohydrates

These I only recommend for people wanting to add real size and muscle and again I have to go with My Protein Instant oats. These should be taken immediately post workout mixed with your protein shake.

Pre-Workout

For me the jury is still out on these as such I dont feel confident to recommend any at the minute. However this may change in the near future.

I  do not make any money from and am in no way affiliated to MyProtein I just love their products and especially their prices. If you do choose to buy from them however please use my Referal Code to get 5% off and yes I get some extra loyalty points its : MP536822

I am also not linked to CSN I just use them and love their amazing service and fast delivery.

So how to take them you ask??

Weight Loss

3 Whey Protein shakes a day, 1 post workout (within 20mins of finishing) and 2 as snacks at around 10am and 3pm

Creatine in your post-workout shake

and omega 3, Multi-Vit and Glucosamine in the morning with breakfast

Weight/Muscle Gain

All the same except add the instant oats (not suitable for paleo diet, have to eat sweet potatoes in this case) into you post-workout shake for that added Kcals and replenishment of muscle glycogen.
