    well, Im trying to gain at least 20 pounds this year, I'm drinking those whey protein shakes after I lift and all, but it tastes like pure shit, it says like chocolate or somethin and I usually mix it with milk, but it tastes like chocolate shit, haha...is there any shakes that you guys know of that dont taste like shit, or am I just gonna have to keep choking this shit down?....

    www.bodybuildingforyou.com has a lot of good reviews on protein shakes. They talk about taste, too, since that seems to be a big deal for you.

    Try REFLEX Instant Whey in Vanilla or Banana with Milk (skimmed) acutally very drinkable. Chocolate and Strawberry always taste like sh*t. I've even managed to get my brother to drink this stuff in vanilla and he's sooooo picky about taste!

    I'm on either one or two a day and I actually look forward to it. Especially the one I have just before bed! From what I've heard it's a great time to take a lump of Protein, as most of the repair goes on while you're asleep. One after training, one before bed is what works for me.

    ya, i take whey also and i always feel like throwing up when i drink it. i always brush my teeth right after too cuz the after taste is nasty.
     
  10. I remember one time I chugged some whey right after working out. I usually close my nasal passage when I drink it so I don't taste it, but I choked a little bit and then took a big breath in through my nose, tasting the nastiness in all of its nasty glory.

    I puked strawberry whey all over the sink. I couldn't bring myself to fix another. Luckily no one saw that.

    My two closest friends had a rgeat deal of difficulty taking down supps, too. It was like a mile run for Chris to ingest his NO-Xplode.

    Me, I looked forward to it every day. I had to abstain from drinking it at night, I loved it so much. I can also down 9 pills at once (Chris got that Universal MV stack with something like 11 pills per package...what a waste).

    Supps are easy for me. I feel bad for you, man, really. That's gotta suck.

    If you re going for fast results try some mass builder instead of just whey. I take it that you live in the US, so I'd guide you towards ON, has a decent list, you can take a look. They are different to whey because they pack many carbohydrates and calories instead of just protein. Give it a shot for quick results. Otherwise you could try some Colostrum-enriched Whey protein with IgF-1.
    PM me if you want more details on it.

    I've had the same problem a couple of times (without puking though-but I was close!). As a student that can't even cook an egg, I started sipping whey instead of making something to eat, until one day I went for whey first thing in the morning. Bad idea... I couldn't even smell vanilla whey for a good month after that.
    It can be fixed if you switch tastes regularly-even if the container is not finished yet, you can finish it later. It worked for me.

    vanilla whey can sometimes be compared to fecal dust.
