you guys think its the lactose in certain PP's thats giving me bloat?
any you guys experience bloat with a certain powder an then NOT with another???????
what powders do you guys recommend ?
I bloat real bad with chep powders, but if I switch back to Pro complex or something of that sort I dont have any issues with it.
whos pro complex???????
whos pro complex???????
Its made by optimum nutrion, its pretty good stuff too. Its 55g of protein per serving, and its got all you bcaa and 8 grams of glutamine per serving. I think its a pretty good deal.
i usually bloat real bad if the protein is not really mixable. EAS has a real good protein that i started taking. 6LBS for like 30. it mixes better than ON 100% and tastes good. give that a try in my opinion.
Optimum Nutrition also puts a digestive aide in their product. I always assumed that this aide helped to breakdown the protein even as it passes into the colon.

yeah ON's protein is really good as well i wasn't trying to say it caused any bloat if that's what it seemed like. both are two of the best economy proteins i have had.
I mostly use ON, because I can buy it cheap locally. EAS products are always good and they actually have pretty reasonable prices on their whey. Yeah, I know it's a 'ditto' post.

I always used ON and still had bloat. It was the whey that did it and I had to switch to egg which cured the problem.
here are a few things to consider in regards to protein powders and bloating:
1. this might sound a bit trivial, silly even, but do you chew or just swallow your shakes? sure, a protein shake is "liquid", but it is also "food". you want to chew each mouthful as if you were eating a meal. this starts the digestive process. again, it sounds silly, but it does actually work (assuming gulping down the shake is the only problem with the selected PP).
2. since you mentioned lactose, i'm going to just assume you are referring to whey protein. of course it could be casein you are using, or even unseparated milk protein. either way, your body can build a "sensitivity" to PP's that is similar to a low-grade food allergy. consider rotating your protein powders every 10-15 days. this will prevent developing sensitivities. in general, i have 5 i rotate my clients between- a whey based PP, a rice PP, pea PP, goats milk PP, and an egg-based PP.
3. do you have a healthy digestive tract? sometimes it's worth checking out to be sure you are digesting properly. some things that could be used to repair a GI tract are probiotics, glutamine, detoxification of various digestive organs, etc. which of these you should do depends on what you may or may not have going on... talk to a qualified practitioner
