and now I amnot constipated any more or have hemroids. I think all the protein shakes were backing me up when ever I keep whey shakes in me I end up constipated and that leads to hemroids for me at least. Well now im going back onmy diet and getting more protein again any advice

You might want to try easing into a higher protein diet. Making a drastic change can cause your digestive system some distress, as it sounds like you have experience with.
Try gradually working more protein into your diet and letting your body adjust slowly. Also, make sure you are eating enough fiber!
Probably a fiber thing like Ice said.

Too much fiber will have the same affect as not enough. Aim for between 25-35 grams daily. Under 15 will likely cause problems as will 45-50.

The most important thing for healthy digestion, especially with the high amounts of protein we all take in, is lots of water. I drink at least a gallon a day....:)
