    okok!
    I dont have a pound sign here so a pound is a #

    I think I've calculated the amounts ok:

    whey 60g day = 1.8kg a month at approx #10 per kg
    glutamine 10g day = 300g a month at approx #10 per kg
    vit c 1 a day = 30 a month at #10 for 90 days
    multimin 1 a day= 30 a month at #10 for 90 days
    b comples 1 a day = 30 a month at #10 for 90 days
    joint care (msm/glucosamine etc) 6 a day = one tub a month at #30 a pot
    ala 6 a day - one tub lasts a month at #50 approx
    amino load (maltodext etc BCAAs) 40g a day, 1200g a month at #10 per kg
    creatine 5g a day= 150g month at #10 per kg
    Udos oil at 12 per bottle, 2 bottles per month

    = something around #150 per month

    GULP!

    Did i get my maths wrong? Add into that daily petrol cost of getting to gym (it adds up), gym clothes, gyms that i pay at (average #6 a week, maybe I should only use the free gym huh!) intermittant physio bills (#100 this month! average 3 months a year) personal trainer travel and fees at #40-#80 a month depending on how often I go to B'ham.....

    No wonder I need a new JOB OR A SPONSOR - HINT GUYS!!! DONATIONS WELCOME c/o GYMBABE FITNESS FUND

    Lucky i dont have any other life isnt it!

    I should add to that that this has been spending for sept - dec. Come January when I will be cutting we can add Lipoderm, leptigen and thermos into the package! So thats gonna be more expensive but luckily I stocked up when I got my new credit card a couple of months ago ;)

    dificult to say exactly because I tend to take what I need from the stock in the gym,lately I've only really been using glucosamine creatine and pro-peptide on a regular basis. Probably around £70/£80 per month.

    You're doing research for your doctor?!

    Um!

    About £3 on multi vits (Got the half price 180 for a fiver from H&B)
    About the same on Multi Flex capsules (Those fish oil things)

    That's it now! Tried other bits and pieces but never felt any benefit

    yep...he is carrying out various studies in his own time on athletes and supplementation, including steroid use. I offered to help him, as I am a helpful type of guy..!!
