Peanut butter has long been the emperor of the nut butter world.
In recent years, however, its monopoly has been lifted by a host of other nut butter spreads which have risen in popularity.
Cashew, almond, walnut, macadamia, hazelnut and Braz [...]
It's 2pm Monday, the first day of your new healthy eating regime.
That spinach and avocado chicken salad you had for lunch was nice enough but it didn't quite hit the spot, and after hearing Linda from HR refer to her stupid fucking children as he [...]
Here at Gymtalk we've tried a number of hit-or-miss protein foods recently, ranging from the good, the bad, to the frankly ridiculous.
In fact, some recent protein creations (garlic protein grasshoppers?) sound as if they were commissioned by a t [...]
Everyone has a weakness.
For Achilles it was his gammy heel, for Superman it was Kryptonite, and for Michael Jackson it was a drunk Macaulay Culkin passed out on a bed shaped like a formula one car.
For me, like many others trying to maintain [...]
There is a battle raging.
In the shadows, in the darkness, right under humanity's nose.
It is a bitter war fought between supplement companies as they try to turn the most mundane of everyday snacks into protein-enriched gains tools.
The l [...]
Like 'Gary Glitter' - 'innocent', 'Ed Miliband' - 'win', 'female comedian' - 'funny', 'protein supplement' and 'luxury' are words that are rarely associated.
However, when a flash sale popped up on my Facebook feed from The Protein Works for a lux [...]
Crisps (as these will henceforth be referred to for SEO purposes).
Alongside the dog, low quality lesbian porn, and YouTube videos about how to properly bleed a radiator, they truly are a man's best friend.
The perfect accompaniment to sandwiches, [...]
There are many things containing soy that I dislike:
Soy milk, Soy sauce, the Spanish, Soy Chubby Brown.
So when The Protein Works released one of their regular Facebook communiques informing me that they were releasing a soy free whey protein [...]
Mum always said, "Eat your veg - you’ll get big and strong!"
Well, Mum, you were wrong.
It’s protein that makes you big and strong you bloody idiot, do you even lift?
Jokes aside, it’s often this very reason why guys who lift skip out on a c [...]
I love pre-workout supplements but recently I’ve had trouble finding something I like that isn’t either really expensive or just plain terrible.
So I decided to try Raze by The Protein Works.
I'd also been off caffeine for a few weeks before I [...]
I'm a big fan of all-in-one supplements.
Unlike fellow Gymtalk writer Charlie, I just don't have the time/can't be arsed to measure out the specific quantities of creatine or glutamine needed for each serving.
Like a 69oz Mixed Grill, with all-in-o [...]
Everyone has their staple supplements.
Whey protein, creatine, pre-workout, maybe a casein-protein mix.
And if you’re anything like me you have some ancillary supplements that you keep on the bench to give yourself a little boost or maybe eve [...]
Although protein shakes are by far and away the most popular protein supplements, there are a number of alternatives on the market.
Do you own a hat with corks hanging from the brim and a two foot long knife?
Why not try an ostrich egg.
Do y [...]
Writing for Gymtalk has taught me a few things:
1. You can shoehorn a knob gag into pretty much any genre of writing;
2. Having a basic understanding of meta-tags and H1 tags can elevate your position in Google's rankings considerably;
3. Most imp [...]
I was so ruddy impressed with The Protein Works Whey Protein 80 that I decided to try another one of their products.
Being a bit fed up with my usual diet of fish, eggs and tuna – as well as protein shakes so sweet they tasted like Gok Wan’s b [...]
The Protein Works made quite the stir when they opened for business back in 2012.
Founded by three ex-directors of MyProtein, the company soon set about shaking up the sports supplement industry by combining premium quality, great value-for-money [...]
