    All you olive oil freaks...

    What kind do you take and how?

    I just downed an amazing tasting protein shake combo of Nitrean/Muscle milk. Then I had 2 TBSP of olive oil and like 10 oz of water. Now all I can taste is the nasty olive oil. I'm trying to gain weight here and I need this stuff to taste better. Will I get used to it or is there better types or methods. Thanks.

    2 L?? WTF you buying that at the price club? Why don't I just get a 55 gallon drum, lol.


    I think I got some cheap store brand crap. Any suggestion on brand names?

    Because the drums are 45gal...

    I'm not familiar with american brands sorry chris, but there is an Australian one called Jingilly which kicks ass. Aim for oils that come from fairly wet/seasonal areas, Italy, spain, Western Australia.

    Macadamia nut oil taste a whole lot better than olive oil anyway, just a bit dearer again.

    i use olive oil for cooking but when taking straight shots i use flax oil

    spectum has cinnamon and lemon flavors i prefer the cinnimon
    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"

    Unripe flaxseeds contain a natural form of cyanide, I'm not a huge fan of flax anyway.

    chris, just look for extra virgin when shopping for olive oil, especially since it sounds like your gonna be taking shots/drinking it. Really any brand should suffice so long as it is extra virgin.

    I put a tablespoon in my shakes all the time to get my fats up.

    Tastes great. And it keeps your shaker clean too! Just don't get any on your clothes...

    Hmm, interesting.. I thought hot water and maybe detergent was a more appropriate way of washing things..

    We grow and make our own olives and olive oil.

    man, i could drink that stuff.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I got a huge jug of organic EVOO from costco for cheap. Good stuff. 1TBPS in a large shake makes it smooth and makes the texture much better, and you can't taste it.

    You could always use a different oil, such as coconut oil or macadaimian nut oil. Both will be much more expensive though.

    I put about 2 tbsp's of olive oil in my shakes and it doesn't change the flavor at all. I can't even tell it's there. Can't you sacrifice one of your "sweet shakes" and just try it?

    Damn, I love the taste of Olive Oil + Nitrean + Milk. Maybe you'll get used to it.

    I've used both flax and olive oil. I just pour them into my shakes. I actually enjoy my shake more when it is in there. The flax tastes a little better with less aftertaste. I use original chocolate myoplex, BTW

    Chase it with some raw eggs, that will kill the taste.
