I’ve been lurking for a few years now and have decided to take on the V-Diet. I tried it once before with products easily available in the UK but ballsed it up right royally, so this time I’ve decided to get my hands on the Biotest stuff, and do it right.
The issue I’ve been having is actually sourcing the stuff at comparable prices. If you buy from sellers in the UK you’re looking at faster shipping but a cost of Â£550+ ($905) from a potentially dodgy source that doesn’t stock all required products.
If you buy from here at T-Nation you’re looking at longer shipping time and having to pay an import duty of 12.8% on the value of the product AND shipping combined, making it only slightly cheaper at Â£503 ($830) and about 1.4 times pricier than if I were living in the US.
I know I’m whinging but I’m a student and when I’m eating solid food I spend on maximum Â£250 ($410) a month including supps (a pretty high food budget for a student over here).
Realistically I know its worth it for the body composition change but I was wondering if there was anybody who had some decent advice on the matter, or anyone from the UK who has actually bought from this site directly and knows about any possible issues. I’m aware of other threads regarding getting supps from sites operating from the UK but would be interested if anyone knows about the direct ordering from overseas.
