After workout that’s a good choice b/c of the fats and carbs. Your muscle are hungry and they will absorb whatever you put on that stomach so I don’t think it is going to make any difference weather you are trying to loose body fat. But them I’m just another newbie wait for the answer from an knowledgeable person…

Mix it with water if possible. Dairy products are very hard for the stomach to process...therefore the protein will be broken down and absorbed faster if mixed with water rather than milk...
Man the problem with Nick is that last time he did it with just water he threw it up!!!
Wierd, I haven't thrown up from a protein drink once yet. However, the most discusting stuff I've ever had is soy protein, wether flavored or not you can't cover up the taste it seems, that stuff was freaking horrible. I DARE you try it, although since nobody prefers soy as a protein source, I guess that wont happen Maybe they've improved it since then.
MY GF and I were having a discussion on whipping creme and whipped creme. I've heard of it. I try to avoid dairy bc/ it makes me feel bloated temporarily. But you know, I'm going to give whipping creme a try and I 'll probably like it!

You better get use to it or else you're gonna get more miserable eating tuna, oatmeal and plain chicken breasts everyday when cutting. What brand of protein powder are you using? Most of them taste OK with water as long as it's finely blended. Just drink and you'll get use to it.
