Disappointment of the Year
This year I have reviewed many incredible products! Some incredible products that didn’t win, but still need to be mentioned: The Shred Belt, Youfresh Naturals, The Powerball, The footballer, the beastie ball, SFH So3d3, Deer Antler Velvet and many many others! Check out all the reviews here on this site!
And now on to the awards!
Bonus Supplement of the Year: What is the bonus of the year? Well; it’s the supplement that makes a world of difference that doesn’t quite fit in any of the categories! And the award goes to: Wheatgrass
There’s too many great things to say about wheatgrass! You have to check out my post here on this site!
Best Tasting Supplement of the Year: many can enter but only one can win! I truly enjoyed all the nut butters and coconut butter this year but one was slightly above all! And the award goes to: PB Crave
This stuff tastes amazing! Every flavor is rich and delectable! Try them all! Hey PB Crave how about a cinnamon raisin?
Stack of the year: This years Stack of the Year challenge was a Fat Burner coupled with a Test Booster to try and stop muscle loss when going on an extreme low carb diet. The results were amazing! And the award goes to: Shredz Fat Burner and Testosterone formally: Shredz and Diezel
BCAA of the Year: And the award goes to: BPI Sports Best BCAAs
Protein of the Year: And the award goes to: Bio-gro although its not quite protein, its Colestrum it’s made from milk and therefore qualifies! Bio-gro has added value to my protein shakes! Try it!
Best Grass Fed All Natural Whey Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Body Logix Natural Isolate All Natural Whey
Best Alternative Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Rice Protein by Growing Naturals I believe that adding multiple sources of protein equals greater uptake in the body. Rice Protein probably absorbs slower than Whey Isolate making my shake a time released protein shake! That’s awesome!
Best Vegan Recipe of the Year: and the award goes to: Avocado Chocolate Pudding although this is a vegan recipe I love to add 2 scoops of protein to make it a healthy and enjoyable high protein snack!
Fat Burner of the Year: And the award goes to: Shredz
Teatox Challenge Teatox of the Year: and the award goes to: Mate Fit

Disappointment of the Year: There is only one hands down winner here!
This one even beat last years loser: the fitbody wrap – the fitbody wrap didn’t hurt me!
The loser is: SARMS!
Do not take SARMS! Stay away! What is supposed to have no side effects poisoned me and 6 other people I know! All of us had the same side effects: high blood pressure and high cholesterol plus weight gain! I would like to sue the manufacturer so if there’s a health care attorney that’s reading this, I have a case for you!

It’s a new year and there’s a lot in the works! Many new supplement reviews from new supplement companies! New product reviews! More tips and recipes! And much more! Teaser: Product Review: Monkii Bars
Nuts ‘N More was founded by fitness and nutrition experts who were looking for fortified, high protein butters and other healthy sources of protein for themselves and their clients. All natural butters can be chunky and hard to spread. Nuts-’N-More created a unique recipe for our fortified butters, and a natural process that simply involves crushing the nuts and blending the ingredients in a way that achieves the finest texture of all natural butters.
The result is the products being brought to market now – spreadable and incredibly delicious, all-natural, high protein peanut butters and almond butters that have 14 grams per serving, without any extra calories or fat. Simple and all natural! Nuts ’N More quickly expanded from fortified, high protein peanut butters and almond butters to other varieties such as Cinnamon Almond Raisin – all of which are all natural and fortified with whey protein and flaxseed. …Nuts ‘N More, the original high protein peanut butters and almond butters!
Check them out on Shark Tank:
So far I have tried the Chocolate Peanut Butter, the Chocolate Almond Butter and the Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter.
I’m not sure how I like it. It’s really grainy! I think it’s the Xylitol! Not crazy about the first 2 flavors. However; the Cinnamon Raisin is good and loaded with Raisins! If you like Cinnamon Raisin, you will like it! It does have 14g of protein per 2tbsp that’s double normal Peanut Butter and Almond Butter. It also has superfood: Flax Seed which is high in Omegas! With all the positives, a little grainy can be overlooked!
However; I will personally stay away from the Chocolate nuts butters! If I have Chocolate Nutbutter, I want it to be freakin delicious! So far the Cinnamon Raisin is a winner! Stay tuned for the other flavors.
What I am super disappointed about, is I don’t have the Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter! I bet that’s the best of them all! Yes; you have the grainy Chocolate Almond Butter, but I bet the awesomeness of the Coconut, offsets it and makes it delicious! I wish I had a jar!!!!!
But I do have the rest, so stay tuned!
Stay tuned for the rest!

Ok first let me start by saying I’m not a fan of Caramel or Toffee! I don’t like anything that gets stuck in my teeth! That being said, I like the flavor of Toffee, but not Toffee. I wasn’t looking forward to the Toffee Peanut Butter, but I have to say it is the absolute best so far!! A tad bit better than the Cinnamon Raisin! They still have the grainy xylitol texture! I would like them to cut the amount they put in! You guys really don’t need that much! The flavors rock and don’t need the extra xylitol! I would try cutting it in thirds and then in half and see how much you really need! I bet it’s a lot less than what you are using and it will save on food cost!
**Update** June 4th 2014
I just had the plain Peanut Butter and I have to say its one of the best! The xylitol content is less as it should be and it’s still a little grainy, but not like the first 2 flavors!
**Update** June 22th 2014
I had the plain Almond Butter and it was evenly as good as the Peanut Butter the same comments as above.
I like the cinnamon raisin the best with the exception of the higher xylitol content. If they lower it and tweak the recipe just a little they will be one of the best companies around!
