Got taken out to lunch by a friend after I baby-sat her 3month old whilst she went to a eye appointment.

Really wasn't necessary as I'm happy to play with the kid for half hour for free.

I've tried plenty of stuff over the years (hard gainer, whey protien etc) in the end I just stick with unflavoured stuff from myprotien.com. Tastes of nothing and is easy to digest.

I've considered a 500, bit concerned it might be *too* small (I'm 6ft tall). Need to actually try one out though.
