    I've been taking Muscle milk protein shake for 5 months now, but I get sick of the sweet yucky test. If anyone can recommend any protein tablet (amino acid tablet) that I could substitute the yucky protein shake and/or get a good result for my muscles? Thanksicon_twisted.gif

    Unfortunitly, there is no "protein pill" you can take to substitute protein powder with. There are BCAA pills, but that's not gonna be the same thing. You need Whey (or Casin) protein in your system in order to build and/or maintain lean muscle tissue.

    What I suggest doing is changing from Muscle Milk to BSN's Syntha 6 protein powder. Much high quality product and even costs less. icon_wink.gif

    If you are not a vegetarian then you could get all your protein requirements from animal protein (meat, fish, chicken) and beans and legumes.

    However, instead of guzzling the overly sweet muscle milk-with the yuck aftertaste, consider making your own protein shake at home with a good quality whey protein and milk (soy or cow based). The taste is totally better and different from Muscle Milk or any of the Ready To Drinks (RTDs).

    I add ice, a banana with peanut butter, or banana and strawberries and then drink up. Good Stuff!

    Ps. I'm not aware of a protein pill unless you are referring to an Amino Acid tablet.

    When you make a protein shake, look at how big that scoop is. Now, imagine trying to condense that mass into a pill form while still making it digestible. You would either have a horse pill or a dozen small ones, both having the problems, so common in supplements, of trying to fit a lot of mass into a tiny volume.

    If you are sick of the flavor, get a less sweet powder option. If you are drinking the pre-mixed stuff they sell in stores, consider buying a giant tub of powder, throwing a dry scoop into an empty plastic shaker, and taking that with you to the gym. It will taste better than muscle milk and consume fewer plastic bottles.

    take a look for unflavored whey protein isolate, you may find that easier to combine with other things or even drink plain.

    Not sure if I can post any stores on here but if you look online you will find everything from Pina Colada to Cinnabun flavors. There is a multitude of flavors out there and not just crappy vanilla, chocloate and strawberry. If you want some stores that have a bunch of flavors, email me.

    I just started mixing my own vanilla protein powder, a cup of 1% milk and a cup of frozen blueberries. Tastes great! Morning drink and one after my workout.

    I never mind the taste of mine. I always just mix a scoop or two with frozen berries and a little water, mix it up with a blender, and it always tastes really good.

    Also add a scoop in with my milk when I eat my cereal in the morning. Good way to get it and I actually enjoy the added flavor to the cereal.

    I add the frozen Nature's 3 Berry Mix (blueberries, rasberries, and marionberries) to my chocolate protein shake and it's great! You can buy a big bag at Costco for about 9.50. Comes out thicker and more like a smoothie.
