PHD Pharma Gain 2 x 2.27KG for £45.99 from Monstersupplement

Found 16th Jan 2014
I know many people have new years resolutions to get fit and all..this is an amazing deal since Pharma Gain on its own is usually around £30 - £35, you get 2 of them for £45 plus a battery charger which is very weird considering its a health site. Free delivery too, I know its the "old formula" but for the price I can happily use the the old formula.

(Not sure but I think new customers can get £5 discount too)

Note: it is a weight gainer so not for people who want to lose weight, high content of carbs.

7.5% Quidco cashback available too brining it down to £42.54

Brought one of these from MyMemory in Dec. for about £4. t's OK, but not worth £20.

actually quidco is 7.5% code and 10% cash back

There is another code I got by text 'QUICK12', which gives 12% off everything - not sure if it is still valid though?

PHD (pretty huge dick) pharma gain...???

Is there any evidence (other than anecdotal) that this sort of stuff is any better than - say - pasta and bacon?

This kind of thing is usually a supplement to help your diet and nutrition along.
I've taken part in some training programs which require you to eat double or triple the daily calorie intake in order to benefit from the training and/or not completely kill/drain yourself.
This kind of thing is very useful.
At the moment however i'm looking more along the lines of lean muscle mass and using standard whey protein with some other supplements to try and tone up and lose weight after a long abscence due to injury.

Personally I prefer using the PHD HT+ as a general supplement and the PHD Synergy ISO 7 Pre and Post Workout. Excellent Deal so voted hot but a shame its not suitable for myself

Too high in carbs for me, I'll stick with 100% whey protein.

Hot for a brand name

OOS at the moment but body building warehouse is pretty good comes in free paint bucket.

bodybuildingwarehouse.co.uk/bod…5kg

I'll stick with grass fed whey protein.

If one wants to maintain his current wegith but only manage to eat 1500 calories per day. Assuming he needs 2500 calories per day maintain his current weight, would taking this supplement to fulfil the rest of that 1000 calories but a good idea?

Do you guys know PHD got done a few years ago for misleading their consumers. Apparently one or more of their protein products did not meet label claim. It was 60% pure protein and phd claimed it was 80%, it had more carbs and sugars than what they stated on their label as well. They re branded it and reformulated by putting HT.

Weight gain powders are ridiculous.

Eat potatoes, they're cheaper and more... err, fun.

If you need 2500 calories to maintain your weight but can only manage to eat 1500 calories, I'd doubt 2500 is your maintenance level.

Furthermore, look into micronutrients. No.

£42.54 for 44 servings (recommended serving) is a bit crap. Buy some isolate whey protein (non-denatured), powdered oats, chuck in some bannanas with some semi skimmed milk/ a bit of yoghurt in a blender and sorted. A cheap alternative to overpriced premade weight gainers.

Monstersupplements is owned by the same company that make PHD supplements, which is why it is an amazing coincidence that the PHD products always win the best products in each category every year Monster have their awards.

First up, this is a good deal and for newbies to protein - the phd stuff tastes really good so if you're not keen on typical cheap protein shakes I'd recommend this one - with milk it actually tastes like a milkshake. However, as Xerophere just said...much better to buy a good protein powder and add your own carbs - oats and extras - bananas, berries etc. Much better for you and should taste just as nice without any unnecessary sugars!

seeing as you've read it what are the details, just to save everyone else reading it...

Essentially the study claims that the protein powder (or at least the one they tested) doesn't actually stand up to all claims on the box.

However, should note the following:

"On the basis of the data presented, the Panel concludes that a cause and effect relationship has not been established between the consumption of whey protein and growth or maintenance of muscle mass over and above the well established role of protein on the claimed effect."

In other words, the whey protein doesn't do anymore than what protein is supposed to do in regard to growth or maintenance of muscle mass. It doesn't say in this case though that it doesn't have an effect - just no more of an effect than it should.

you seem to be in total agreement then , that a cause and effect relationship was not found,, in any of the listed areas, although i would agree that some of these companies exagerate what whey protein is actually capable of doing.

what we are reading though is a conclusion based on data we cannot see

so it's more directed at the claims of some of these companies who continue to give supplements super powers, instead of just basic nutritional benefits when exercising .

its a good thing i suppose that these company get kept in check about there wild claims, it is truely a mind field , the temptation when trying to train and to try and get the most out of what your doing is to possibly give in to these claims in a hope they will help, instead of trying to stick with the basics and trusted techniques i suppose,

There seems to be some anecdotal evidence that eating 1g per pound bodyweight of protein is optimum (not scientifically proven, though I tend to trust what the big boys doing the >400kg deadlifts say, rather than what some stick insect benching 10kg dumbells said they read in a journal (and probably didn't understand)), an 80kg person would have to eat around 180g of protein a day. In bacon and pasta, assuming a 1 to 3 ratio of bacon and pasta, which gives 19g of protein per 100g, you'd need to eat just under a kilo of pasta and bacon a day. Or supplement your normal diet with 2 or 3 protein shakes a day. I know which one I find easier. Plus with pasta and bacon, you'd be putting away over 100g of fat a day... up to you!

Yes that is easier said than done though, with my routine of 8 hours of work (shift patterns) and then gym after that u dont expect me to carry all those ingredients with me do you? Its the ease of use that you pay for, in an Ideal world I could be eating handful of nuts 1 portion of steamed fish at lunch then 1 portion of roasted chicken between lunch and dinners etc but I know thats not gonna happen.
