Are you a slurper, a gulper or a sipper?


#1

Yeah, I know it was something Boost Juice Bars had on an ad a couple years back, but I’m curious. I drink gulp mine either all in one or in three or four stages throughout half an hour…


#2

Gulp down as quickly as possible

Don’t know if this is wrong or right … but it works for me !!


#3

I’m probably more of a glug, it’s hard to sip or gulp at the thickness I make it at (195g + 30g whey to 750ml water)


#4

As quickly as humanly possible. If I could swallow it as a balloon I would.


#5

I sip and enjoy the taste. Chew the flaxseed too. But usually finish in 3-5 minutes.


#6

Wow! I think I’d burst if I drank it as quickly as that. I sip it over about 30 minutes. (100g in a full shaker of water). It makes me feel so full.


#7

Gulper here!

Sippers welcome, but I’d ban slurpers from my presence!


#8

I usually plan on making it last an hour or two but in reality, I smash it in about 5 mins because, well, it tastes good.

If it’s a larger serving like 120 grams, I’ll spread it out over a longer time so the extra protein actually gets used.

That’s a hilariously ironic username based on that comment!


#10

Haha, that did cross my mind. I should really change the username…

It’s my understanding that we only really use 20-30g protein in one go for muscle synthesis – anything over just gets processed by other means.

I’ve read this too, so try to adhere to it.

Tricky if you go out for a monster steak though! :smiley:

It takes me forever to drink it, I’m for sure a sipper, just because it’s so thick. But I take my time with most drinks so this is no different. I think the longest was over an hour and a half. The lunch one only takes maybe 30-40 minutes but my breakfast one takes a lot longer.


#13

I think that’s why steak makes you piss foam :smile:


#14

Hm I dunno about that guys… I mean it kind of makes sense but I’m not convinced.


#15

sipper AND chewer…


#16

Only recently have I started to down it as quickly as possible, it’s much more tolerable than sipping at it. Even if I use just three scoops, I have to fill the shaker to the brim, use a mixer ball and shake it like crazy for a minute, otherwise it’s just a thick sludge.


#17

none of the above – I eat it with a spoon like drinking soup and it takes me 20-30min so I’m probably an anomaly :stuck_out_tongue:

anyone else eats it with a spoon? heh


#18

I drink it as fast as I can because im no fan of lent taste


#19

Thick, cold & fruity, that’s me.


#20

Neither - I’m a sucker :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
