I bought GNC Elite Mega Mass. 600 Calories (plus the OJ), 51G of Protein, 5g of Fat (i think like 3 is saturated though)

When is the best to take this? WHen should I NOT take it

Anything better out there?

Take it before/during/after you workout.

i don't know what it is but if it is just a protein shake, search google and i'm sure you can find something similar for much cheaper. if it is a weight gainer, you can make your own or again search the internet and find something cheaper. in my experience GNC has been comparitively expensive

Yeah, why? It says milk, juice or water. I prefer the taste of strawberry shake with OJ

No reason. I just find the taste of flavoured whey and orange juice revolting.

Hi Meister
Maybe its just me, but 51g of protien isnt very much.
In Japan the no1 protien shake (SAVAS XX) has over 90g.
You say mega mass, (sorry I havent checked it out on google) so are you bulking? As bulking shakes and normal protein shakes protein content varies greatly.
If bulking then it sounds fine, if you are not I would suggest going for a MUCH higher protein content.

I gotta say, whey (vanilla) and orange juice really does taste delicious. I cant explain why, it doesnt seem like it would. but it does. It tastes better hand mixed and thiner (not as thick as a milkshake) when w/ oj
