Protien shakes are much better when mixed with milk. Try ON 100% Whey Gold Standard. It comes in many different flavors.

He's gonna have to eat if he wants to get big. Tell him, that's all there is to it. There's no other way around it, at least none that I'm aware of.

When I first started drinking protein shakes, they made me feel pretty full pretty quick. I got used to it after a short time. Maybe start him off with a smaller protein shake. I think mixing with milk leaves an even fuller feeling IMO. I have issues with milk as it is so I just use water to mix and occasionally juice.

Then again I am a big guy who eats a bit. It's a suggestion anyway.

I use a GNC 100% Whey Gold Standard, Protein and its Chocolate flavor and although it isn't something to die for, I really don't mind it so much either. I mix the Protein with 250ml of Milk, and around 3/4 frozen Banana and it actually tastes alright.

sounds like lactose intollerance.. I believe I developed it from taking whey. I never had a problem in my life until then.

try some of the at large protein powders, they taste great and never give me any gas/bloating etc.
