    Hey guys

    So the GN people have emailed me to tell me that the points for taking second place in the TSR new year transformation contest have been added to my account. They've also asked to write a full review once I've received and used the products.

    How can I make the most of this 50 pound? What would you get?

    Goals are same as always - to feel strong and energetic, build muscle, lose fat. My exercise consists of running, weightlifting and martial art classes on a Wed and Thur.

    I'm big on the basics: good diet + protein and you're sorted for most things! GN does some great protein (whey protein 80 is what I get - don't think the 90 is worth the extra few quid - something like 2g more protein per scoop for an extra £3). Also, if you need a shaker, they do really cheap ones, and I'm very happy with the one I got from them!

    Also get a free 250g sample if it's your first order (good for giving flavours a try) and you use a mate's referral code. Free to have mine if you want.

    Only one I've tried is triple chocolate - really liked it. Just finished off my first kilo, and just ordered another 4.5 kilos.

    Also seen black forest gateaux, key lime pie, and strawberries and cream well-reviewed by other folks on TSR. Each have their criticisms, though, it's not all wholly positive reviews!

    I prefer triple choc. Black forest gateau tasted a bit synthetic to me - the fruitiness was very obviously an artificial flavouring which I wasn't that keen on. Not tried the lime/strawberry ones but have heard the same re sweetness/artificialness. Depends if you mind that sort of thing or not.

    All flavours are decent. Having had a sample pack, the sweets and pancake one are quite sweet

    Strawberry and chocolate flavours are very tasty indeed

    Having had 2kg of key lime pie.. You get sick of it quite quick

    So...the summer was incredibly busy with work placement etc and didn't want to buy the products when I wouldn't have been able to trial them properly. Back at uni now, tonnes of spare time, ready to get back into a routine. I'm not sure if what I have in my basket even makes sense :erm: someone tell me if this is a bizarre mix of stuff? :lol:

    1kg triple chocolate diet whey
    1kg chocolate orange whey
    60 pure conjugated linoleic acid capsules
    90 thermogenic fat burner capsules

    Hi!

    I choose the products I listed above!

    I think I messed it up though, I think I spent 50 rather than using the points because I didn't click redeem or anything. whoops.

    I entered someone's referral code too so added the blender cup :ahee: so looking forward to this!

    Edit: ALSO, there was ANOTHER promotion in my emails so I added that code and another 6 pound came off! Happy days.
