Creatine @ £60 !!! What the ....
All Creatine Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Would much rather buy protein cookies from my protein, these bars taste awful! Got four boxes lying around just can't get to eat them!
Ordered 2 packs and got free delivery (y)
Agree about the taste. They are awful.
They are 2 for a pound in poundworld. Search for deal on here. However, i agree they are hideous on taste.
Chocolate Raspberry is vile, I bought a box and struggled through them.. plenty of water helped!
Insulin regulates blood sugar levels. To much sugar, it stores it to lower it. If it is low it pushes stored glucose into the bloodstream. If your body doesn't require the energy from carbs It is stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles first any excess after that is turned into fat. So if you body is doing that what will it do with ingested fat. Store it.
I am pretty sure the insulin command is to turn sugar in blood to fat ~ Not store injested fat ~ Other wise the high amounts of blood sugar would not drop.The very reason for the insulin command in the first place
Processing oats will cause more of a insulin response then if eating whole, as they are digested quicker. This isn't a bad thing as a insulin is a storage hormone so if you spike your insulin after a work out the protein is easier for the muscle to uptake. Bare in mind when insulin is high you will store ingested fat so around insulin spikes avoid long chain fats. I also use banana and mct powder to add calories shakes mct is a medium chained fat that is metabolized by the liver for energy and your body doesn't store this.
Any idea what carbohydrate is better for a mass builder shake (can't get enough cals from healthy eating)? Currently pair 30g whey isolate with 80g of instant oats for a mass builder shake at around 450cals. Do you know of a long-chain powdered carb that can be used in shakes, or is it the case that the fact it is processed into flour makes any of these carbs rapidly metabolised? Cheers.
May be best price atm, but it's reasonably often available for £4 per 5kg (instant oats). You have to wait until they run a 40% 'sale' on the headline price and then use one of the uniquitous discount codes. Usually they control discounts so protein never falls below a certain price, but the other products can become very cheap. Bought 20kg at the start of the month.
Good tips, thanks. I laughed when I saw on the Boots page "only 21g of protein". Clearly the marketing person didn't realise they were meant to talk that number up, not down ;)
Best Before End – 31/1/18 They're cheap because they go out of date next week.
Confirmed at multiple stores. I've tried those, really chewy and and easy to eat. Pfffft. Riot! (devil)
If it's taste you want then checkout the Nutramino Peanut & Caramel bar. By far the best tasting protein bar I've ever tried. I have a box of Grenade Carb Killas (Peanut) from Amazon and they taste very similar to a Snickers but still have nothing on the Nutamino bar. I would choose that bar over most actual regular chocolate bars for taste alone. (excited) I would also recommend you checkout the SCI-MX Nutrition Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (y) So I just checked my receipt and it turns out I got 2 for £1 too! Trust me to buy 5! (:I That's not the first multi-buy deal I've come across that's not advertised on the shelf in there! (flirt)

30g bars. Shipping weight says 1.1kg. So it must be correct description just price error.
except really, you will get one.....description error
...aaaand now because everybody orders about 20 boxes, we all get nothing. What a fun game.
Another day on HUKD, another creatine
Ahh I did buy that sample pack. Didn't know about the promotional credit. I'll expire the deal then.
Doesn't work for me
I thought creatine was one of the few supplements with a body of scientific study confirming it's benefits in sport.
Unleash the uncredited health benefits. .. For your money
Creatine is so cheap nowadays there's no harm doing so.
Don't bother with a loading phase, no need
Creatine can be taken several ways, once you've gone through the 'loading' phase then it doesn't really matter as long as your body gets the recommended 5g per day.
Label states to take 3 before and 3 after daily workout
you need to take 7 of these to get the daily recommended 5g of Creatine, I fond it easier to use powder just added to my recovery shake after a workout.
yes! you're welcome to check my liver.
I think it should be a general rule now, you talk like that you state the source, simple
Do you bros even lift?:(
Do you actually have some evidence for that?
Waste of time.
Received mine and they are dated 07/17.
I hope not as I have ordered 3!
Could it be due to short dated stock? Great find if the item as a long BBE date.
Perfect timing thanks pal
Can I use this in my infants formula?
Pretty sure its much cheaper (per gram) to buy a 1kg tub of USN micronized creatine at Home Bargains. Just a 'heads up' for anyone who's after this stuff but not in a rush, as haven't checked my local HB for it in a while, 1kg lasts me some time!
The only time I have a shake is post workout. It's easier, quicker and cheaper for me to do so. However I don't have it any other time, as a shake can't replace proper food.
Wholefoods > All powders. I really do think powders are a waste of money and actually pretty unhealthy when you could just eat a good meal! Unless you don't get the opportunity to do so cos of other committments. They're good for on the go, but some people are brainwashed into getting shake in within 30 mins of every workout. Totally unnecessary.
Any good ?
The problem is that they got so much products it is so hard to pick one. For gains [muscle and fat/size] they got one called extreme gains i believe. Personally I am waiting for a good offer on the impact whey and the isolate protein. But as this is 50% off pills, I thought I might as well buy some now, and start the year healthier.
As in high calorie protein and carb based products? If so, then yes they do. Although you could just use the standard whey etc or even just eat more food products getting the right % of protein, carbs and fats for an increased calorie intake for your requirements.
