View Full Version : Please Help!! Diarreha Problems

05-06-2002, 11:25 PM
Can any one help me on this.....I've been taking some protein shakes (prolab N-Large2 to be exact) and I've been getting diarreha everytime i drink it. Could this be bad for me? Could I have problems if i drink to much of this? I take one scoop and I get diarreha with in an hour or a little over an hour. But if I take half scoop I'm alright. Was wondering if too much protein shakes are bad???? Please help thanks!:help:

any probs for you with milk?

05-07-2002, 08:54 AM
yeah i'm guessing lactose intolerance.

05-07-2002, 12:28 PM
no im not lactose intolerant. I never have problems with milk. its only whats in the shake i think. I've heard about people getting diarreha when they take a protein shake. so i was wondering if too much is bad for you? and is it bad for the liver or kidneys???

Maybe stress. Overtraining. Or, try a different brand.

05-07-2002, 01:09 PM
ouch. Hate to hear that and I myself would definitely try a different brand and hope that helps.

That particular one has 89 grams of carbs but only 4 grams of dietary fiber, maybe that's part of it (dietary fiber helps in digestion and stool consistency).

yeh i heard certain brands give u the runs too..

Cut the milk out with it. Drink it with water...Still problems, switch brands. Even though you say you are not lactose intolerant, you will be suprised how much more you are on da toilet with milk and protein.

yeah the diarreha is bad already but i mean what harm could it do to me enternally??? but anyways thanks for everyones help, oh and i do drink it with water. Never with milk, just water. anyhow i just wasted 80 bucks on a ten pound tub of protein.

what kind of shake were are you drinking, i jumped into the hardcore BBer one in the proteinfactory thinking it was only bad tasting, but that stuff gave me diahrrhea too, only that one kind, the hardcore BBEr shakes, no other kind. O yeah, i added something extra to the hardcoree BBEr shake to make it even more hardcore. LOL, man the taste was horrible, but JESUS, it wrecked my digestion too, now i just stick to the stuff i get for discount at Sports Authority, I got Employee Discount.

Take some digestive enzymes with your meal or drink.

$80 for 10 pounds? ouch. I'd see if you can return it. From the price it sounds like you got it at GNC.

ya you got ripped, i get mine for 40 bones for the 10 lb bucket.jus look at online sources since youre majorly getting robbed.

Man - don't drink it with milk - MAJOR calorie overload, not many people can absorb all those carbs and protein in one go.

I am fairly Lactose Intolerant - Don't SCREW the shake by mixing it with milk.

Thats really odd, you can take digestive enzymes with your food? Hmm, doesn't that mean i could eat as much food as i want as long as i put digestive enzymes down with them? Where do iget these digestive enzymes and for how much?

1 serving of nlarge2 is 4 scoops, so take 2 scoops and if it continues take 1... just keep taking it and it should go away within a week, if not i'd get some new protein.. keep in mind nlarge2 is like eating a meal, it has a lot of calories and a lot of fat... make sure you haven't eaten for at least 2 hours before you drink it, and dont eat for 1 hour after you drink the shake
