    Too Sweet!

    I can't stand a whiner and never want to come off as one, but there has to be something better. I am trying to lay down a good foundation so when I get some gear I am good to go. I am trying to improve the quantity and quality of my diet. One small part was adding a whey protein shake for post work out. I don't drink soda and use only small amounts of sugar. I picked up a 6lb bag of whey at costco and whipped up a two scoop shake after after an intense work out. WTF! the sweetness was so over the top it was nauseating. I read the package and it comes from sucralose. I pounded it down but it was like drinking straight Nutra sweet with a dash of vanilla. Maybe straight whey tastes like wallpaper paste but I would greatly prefer that. Can someone point me in the right direction? Who makes a Product without added sweetener at a good price?

    ^ this. I also found a site you can build your own protien. Protienfactory.com. Has a ton of choices on sweetner and can have no sweetner. Protien with no sweetner tastes and smells like spoiled baby formula just to warn you.

    There is another website I can't quite remember that also has no name brand bulk powders in everything at great prices - ie creatine, glutamine. Can anyone help with the name of this website? Bulk???????.com ?

    Thanks for the advice guys! I'll dilute and suffer through this batch and do my research on a better product. I am trying to go with whole foods for most of my diet and use the protein shake for post work out. Are BCAAs a better alternative? More to learn.

    I use the shit from sams club. If u dont want something sweet try this shit.... It tastes like Doom. Remmber when u just get out of the gym, shit tastes different. Like for me, even water tastes sweet righ after a hard workout session.
