What kind do you use? I keep seeing most of you talk about drinking protein shakes and it kinda got me curious to what all kinds there are. I know there is literally an endless variety of them but which do you find to be the most effective and/or have the best contents? The one I am using right now I think is made by EAS and is available in several different flavors. The only thing I don't really like about it is that shit is more like pudding than a shake which makes it kinda hard to get down right after a hard workout.

i use the designer protein, i think you get what you pay for when it comes to this stuff....
he heh.......... I already add enough water to it that it is somewhat "watered down" and it is still thick like whipped cream and tastes like shit. On top of it tasting like shit, there is twice as much to put down when you add water to get it thinned down.
Is designer protein the brand name of what you use? Where can you get it and how much is it?
I use designer as well. Unless you are drinking a meal replacement with allowances for carbs (sugar), you aren't gonna find a protien shake that tastes "good". Some are more tolerable than others though.

The one I have is actually decent tasting until I thin it down enough that I can actually drink it, and then it is like drinking un-sweetened koolaide with two times the water as you are supposed to have.
I use the Optimum Nutrition brand Whey protein powder in the Vanilla Ice Cream flavor. Yummy! I mix it with skim milk and that helps the taste so much that you would not believe it! I used to take it in water and have to choke it down, with thee milk I drink it like it was a damn treat or something.
I read somewhere about whey protein powder that they are all pretty close and to just find one that you seem to trust. I gues a little like creatine monohydrate. Lots of makers but it is all fairly close stuff form what I gather. Of course I could be wrong.
Drink one after your workout and then one before bet too. I have one with meals if the meals are not high enough in protein bu offer the carbs and calories that I am looking for. I packed one today and got rooked into eating at sonic for lunch - so I tried to eat fair and had the shake with it.

I know what you mean. I've used the Myoplex Plus Deluxe before and that stuff is just too thick unless you add a ton of water...then there's just entirely too much to drink. If you're not on a strict budget, you might wanna try some of the Myoplex Ready To Drink shakes. They're a little more expensive, but supposed to be like a regular drink from what I've heard.
The Weider Mega Mass 4000 is the best tasting supplement I have ever had. It tastes like a real milkshake not like crap. Mix with milk, I like the chocolate flavor. Best supplement if you are looking to put on some pounds. It is loaded with carbs so only use it if you are working out really hard. I gained almost 20 lbs over a year with the stuff. Another great thing is it is loaded with vitamins. Don't worry it has more than enough protein in it!
