I thought it might be nice to try to make a few people laugh, with some of my horrible supplement experiences. So here it goes. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, back when I was a newbie, I was searching for a post workout shake. I eventually invested in Twinlab Opti-Fuel 2. I remember the 1st time I tried it. Smelled like vanilla. Mixed it in skim milk. Still smelled like vanilla. Then I tasted it…and proceeded to gag. Talk about the most VILE, FILTHY, DISGUSTING, PUTRID, FOUL tasting concoction ever devised; Yet somehow, I managed to force myself to down it, since I didn’t want to waste the $40-$50 I had spent buying this crap. Sadly, I only managed to get it down one more time. By the 3rd Opti-Fuel shake, I just couldn’t force anymore down and threw away the rest.
2nd silly story: The worst tasting supplement award goes to Opti-Fuel 2. The worst gas-inducing award goes to Larry Scott's 'Hyper Growth Formula' (I know, I know...hey, I was a newbie at the time, and brainwashed by the Larry Scott ads in the muscle mags). Now, I'm a bit on the lactose intolerant side, but I can have some milk everyday and be fine. But the amount of lactose found in Larry's fine protein powder must be unreal. Because never before had I been so gassy. I was the epitome of chemical warfare. Howard Stern's alter ego, Fartman, would have lost to me. My stomach was bloated, churning like a blender all day long. The toxic fumes that came out of me nauseated even ME!
So…anyone else with any funny supplement horror stories?
