ECKK!!!!!!!! I just had some chocolate whey protein and it's so ****in' nasty.. I could hardly finish that stuff, UGH!! and it smells too... does anyone know how to make this crap taste better. When I had mine, the first time I had it with low fat milk and the second time with water... and I almost threw up drinking this crap...
dude....there are plenty of protein out there that taste good. You got to tell us what brand you got. Change it up or if you stuck on drinking the one you have, add something to it (PB, banana, whatever)

BTW... would it be ok if I ate the protein powder raw instead of drinking it...?

no dont eat it raw. it needs to be in liquid form if you are taking it post workout, so it can be absobed quicker. you can mix it in some oatmeal in the morning..but whey is usually only for post workout. it doesn't taste that bad. mix it with a banana in a blender with some milk.

.. i gotta buy a blender :P
naw i drink the stuff, just with juice...
apple, orange, anything.. it always masks the taste
no....dont add a banana with your postworkout drink. You dont want fructose. Add dextrose and/or malt, that should actually sweeten up your drink for post. So maybe you can chug it without feeling ill. But ya, any other time of the day, throw in that banana. shiddd...throw in two.

Just add a couple packs of splenda or equal. Whey protien should only really be taken after a workout so sweetners are ideal. I blend mine with skim milk, a bannana, and equal. YUMMY! I actually look forward to my post workout shake.
Whey is generally one of the best tasting proteins. If you have a weak stomach stay away from the hydrolized whey's. If you want to enhance your protein then add some maltodextrin and dextrose to the mix. Besides, it will only help to add in some carbs to your post workout shake.
sugar free pudding mix tastes really good w/ vanilla whey

Whey was considered a waste product for years by farmers. It is still used to "slop" hogs.
It has only been within the last decade or so, we realized the nutritional value for humans.

Uh, Hippocrates (that would be the Greek dude known as the father of medicine) used whey to treat a variety of illnesses. There are two ancient Italian proverbs that generally say drinking whey will keep you healthy.
I just love it when someone thinks only what popular society knows is the whole truth. It's like saying the internet has only been around for ten years.

1 scoop Optimum 100% Whey - Vanilla Ice Cream flavor
1/2 Tbsp Metamucil for every scoop of protein.
MMMMM....tastes like Orange Cream bars, and keeps ya regular too! :D
Can't take credit for that recipe. I read it here I believe. :)
Also...I don't recommend any flavor other than the Vanilla. You can always add things to Vanilla to change the flavor. Not so easy with the others. Oh...and avoid the Pina Colada at all costs. That shiat made me puke. :)
