suck it up, get small, or eat crap, your choice

Thats the Problem..
I want to stay athletic and not get fat!:)
If I eat more meats and less "Junk Food" would it be better?
Like Instead of eating Chips with my Burger(Cooked on the Foreman grill) I should eat 3 burgers instead of 2 with chip?

3 burgers? Unless you're special, thats no way to stay athletic.

Chicken breasts are better and more economical than ground beef, and chickens are far stupider than cows. Also they are arguably better for you.

how about this- two chicken breasts on what buns with a baked potato on the side...or 3 sandwiches, if you are that big an eater.

PS, about the protein shakes, they suck. Get used to them and you will be bigger than you could have possibly dreamed.

Put it this way...I used to hate tuna. Now I cant even taste it anymore.
Or something.

Do you use milk? They taste better in milk. Also it is definatly an aquired taste. Nasty at first and then after a few weeks you may acully like em. :)

I like Optimum in milk and Met-RX Original in water (lots of it!).

04-18-2002, 10:17 AM
Designer, Gourmet and ISOPURE are all decent tasteing...

jesus, shakes taste awesome, they're not like real milk shakes, but they're really good.

I've had Optimum 100% Whey Protein and am now using Met-Rx Protein Plus (both chocolate flavors). I must say that they are one of my most satisfying meals of the day...tastes just like a chocolate shake.

Designer whey is the best!

04-19-2002, 02:26 AM
Optimum Whey is great with milk....nasty with water.

05-04-2002, 08:11 PM
yeah man, with water all protein is nasty. plus with milk you get the extra protein from that too

Penta pro or a whey blend from proteinfactory.com. vanilla with spleda. chocolate is good too. it tastes good, i hardly ever mix anything with it, sometimes peanut butter or a banana. taste good mixed with water too. about eight bucks a pound.
