    What brand are you using?

    My shakes don't taste too bad...although I used to hate the taste so I've probably just gotten used to it. As far as side effects go I don't get any. The only thing that gives me wind is when i cook up a huge put of chilli and eat it every day after my workouts!

    Are you drinking the protein straight or adding carbs/creatine/anything else?

    I reckon most protein shakes taste rubbish by themselves. Even if you add one scoop of carbs they taste better. Or you can add milk, crushed ice, oats, fruit and blend it. I do that every now and then.

    I know mine is pretty nasty itself. i usually use fresh strawberries a bananna big spoonful of peanut butter and some blueberries and blend em. when i dont have access to a blender i just mix my creatine with it and it is not too bad.

    yea the brand im using is Healthy N Fit

    I can take it no problem but I taste powder
    and then when I see the bottom of the glass there is chunks of powder which grooses me out

    afterwords i burp a lot and I can taste it

    I should try mixing with a blender and I guess ill try adding something to it

    lets say if i wanted to add icecream would I still put water in? or just like some ice cream , maybe some milk and the powdER?

    I get some gas with mine when I get over 60 grams - don't mix with ice cream, kinda defeats the purpose of eating right and getting the protein.
    Milk is okay.

    Try a little fruit if you like and try a couple different flavors just to see what suits your taste buds best.
    I know some people that swear by Vanilla - bit I could never stomache it.

    If you use a blender, you can make a larger batch and split it up to take over a few days.

    yea the one im taking is 61 grams of protien including 10 grams of 100%something creatine

    o and its ok to make a lot and just store it in a big jug in the fridge?
    cuz i rather do that than have to mix every time

    Read the label, it should tell you. My protein bucket says you must drink it within 5mins of mixing it up so storing it wouldnt work

    My label didn't say anything about drinking right after mixing
    Is that safe to say I can store?

    Hi All !

    I notice quite a few people are saying about having 'wind' and 'farting' after taking protein drinks

    Is it after taking the protein drink with milk..??

    Sometimes the 'gas' you get after protein shakes has more to do with the lactose, fillers and artifical crap that the supplement comanies do not have to disclose on the label...

    no side effects for me not even a bad taste. only thing is you could take massive hard dumps if you've never had that much protein everyday.

    I mix mine in the blender and leave the blender pitcher in the fride it stays ok leave the top on though!!! lol and you don't have to clean it as much either. I know you a few of you were talking about the taste the BSN protien strawberry is really good, but i don't usually buy it cause it's over priced.

    Try (if you use chocolate) mixing it with chocolate soy milk, it tastes way better regular milk or chocolate milk (in a protien shake anyway) it's usually the same price as milk plus gives you an added couple of grams of protien!
    nothing comes easy or quick, hard work is the only way you can get your perfect body so if you're looking for the easy path this isn't for you.
