Protein supplement supplement

Posted in: Sport

One of the problems with protein supplements is quite often they taste foul. In a store in Ireland I was limited to a selection of basically one type, Body Fortress, and it's so grim I can barely drink it. In a desperate attempt to make it more palatable I ended up mixing it with various juices, apple, cranberry, and about anything else I could get my hands on in the Google fridge. The best I can say happened was "taking the edge off it". The worst however, in the case of fresh squeezed orange juice, was some bizarre fermentation process that made me feel queasy for about six hours.

America, being the Land of Plenty and far better skilled retails sales people, provided me the chance to sample a few protein products before I made my purchase. I ended up with Max Muscle's vanilla caramel swirl Gourmet Protein. I love the hubris of "gourmet". But anyway, it actually tastes fine and I have no immediate drive to mask its taste with household drain cleaner.

In preparing to hit the town tonight however, I discovered something that really fleshes out its bouquet and depth: two scoops protein, one scoop Jack Daniels. That Tennesse magic put to the task of building a better body. Mmm, delicious!

Amused by the comments re nutrition in the states etc. Guess you feel like I do, that the whole nutrition game is about who you want to believe this week. My theory this week is that if I increase protein intaje to 1.8g per kilo of weight (65kg) I may finally put on some weight. But nothing dissaudes me from thinking that I am simply 'thinking' too nuch. Common complaint
