77. UMORO SHAKER BOTTLE
The Umoro shaker bottle is an ingenious product.
It has a compartment in the lid in which you can store your protein powder (or other supplement). Up to 50g can be stored.
The powder is then deployed into the bottle with the push of a button. This means that you can store your protein while you use the shaker as a water bottle. When you are ready for a hit of protein post workout, simply push the button to release the contents of the compartment.
With the Umoro two-in-one shaker bottle, you will only ever need to take one bottle to the gym!

80. Zint Xylitol: All-Natural Sweetener and Sugar Substitute (5 lbs)
If you are trying to avoid or minimize your consumption of sugar, xylitol could be the answer to your prayers.
It looks and tastes tastes just like sugar. But it has 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbs, making it a much healthier alternative.
A study in laboratory rats that compared xylitol to other artificial sweeteners found that xylitol had fewer or no side effects. It was also found to have fewer calories than sucrose (table sugar).

81. Infuser Water Bottle
Anyone interested in fitness knows how important it is to drink a lot of water and keep hydrated.
There are loads of benefits. Water increases your metabolism, promotes proper organ funcitoning and even helps you fill more full so you eat less.
However, drinking water all day can, frankly, get a bit boring. Thankfully, an infuser bottle solves this problem. It allows you to add your choice of fruit (or whatever else you want to add) into the infuser sleeve within the bottle. The flavours then seep into the water, producing a delicious drink. This will ensure you will enjoy drinking water throughout the day.
The infuser bottle we have chosen has a flip top spout, making it perfect for use at the gym or during sports.
82. GU Original Sports Nutrition Energy Gel, Salted Caramel
Energy gels offer a concentrated source of energy. This makes them ideal for replacing lost energy whilst exercising and racing. Most Energy Gels are based on maltodextrin. This provides glucose directly to your bloodstream and also provides an easily absorb-able form of carbohydrate.
As energy gels are effectively concentrated energy drinks, they need to be taken with water.
GU Energy Gel is one of the most well known and reputable brands selling energy gels. Each packet of Gu gel contains 450mg of amino acids, 100 calories, and at least 21g of carbs. Please bear in mind that some of the flavours sold by GU include caffeine.
GU Energy states that the branched-chain amino acids contained in the gel limit muscle fibre damage and increase the speed of recovery. In addition, the electrolytes help to maintain water balance.
If you train intensely for long periods, then GU Energy gels could well be a game changer for your performance!
83. Quest Nutrition Protein Bar (12 bars)
You can never have enough protein, which is why these Quest bars will always go down well.
Protein bars are a great snack as they are usually low in sugar and have a high protein content. I personally find them much more convenient than making a protein shake. You can take them with you to the office or the gym and can keep them in your gym bag or desk until needed.
Packed with 21 grams of protein in each bar, these are great for helping to build muscle. They also have 4g of net carbs and are 190cal.
84. Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter, 16-Ounce Jars (Pack of 3)
Peanut butter is a favorite of athletes and bodybuilders due to its high protein content. However, few people seem to know about almond butter, which frankly is a better alternative (at least on a strictly nutritional basis). It is also an absolute treat for those with peanut allergies.
Barney Butter seem to have mastered the art of making almond butter. Their product does not need to be stirred or refrigerated. It is gluten free, and does not contain any trans fats or hydrogenated oils. If that wasn’t enough, it has only half the saturated fat of peanut butter making it a treat that is both delicious and healthy.
The main downside to almond butter is usually its price; however, you can get 3 x 16 ounce jars for only $32.85 on Amazon. At that price, there is no excuse not to try it.
85. Brooklyn Biltong (16oz)
Biltong is the South African version of beef jerky. It tends to be more tender than traditional jerky and has a pure beef flavor.
If you are looking for a protein rich, savory snack to pick at during the day, then you would struggle to do better than biltong.
Brooklyn Biltong is made from grass fed beef and contains approx. 12 grams of protein per 1 oz (28.3 gram) serving. It is healthier than many store bought beef jerky brands as it doesn’t contain nitrates, unnatural preservatives or added sugar.
86. The Ultimate Protein Powder Cookbook: Think Outside the Shake

Armed with this, you will never need to worry about finding dishes that meet your protein content requirements.
