this stuff is starting to get to my stomach whenever I have a shake. It's not the milk as that doesn't bother me during the day. I guess my only other alternatives are soy and egg. Out of these two, would you suggest one over the other and why?

Thanks,
Jerry

I use egg whites.

Why?

Soy is evil. That's why.

Really, go with egg whites. Can't go wrong.

How many grams of protein is in your shake? I went form gnc's 40g's to optiumum nutrition's 100% natural whey 22g and never had problems again. No more stinky gas or stomach pains :)

Optimum is a better choice, but if you think amount is your problem...it can be resolved easily by not using the whole serving. You are allowed to use however much you want.

ditto...try varying the serving size. whey is considered the most anabolic protein

OK, I'll try and vary the serving. I have been using two servings(40g pro) and 8oz. milk in my shakes. I'll drop it down to one and see what happens.

Thanks,

That has to be one of the most uneducated statements I've ever seen.

It was tongue-in-cheek, my friend. If it did not come across as such, I apologize; I had thought that such excessive condemnation would not be taken seriously.

I hear soy puts razor blades inside of candy apples at Halloween time.

Now, is this a question of an alternative to whey- as in casein, etc? I'd definitely agree with egg protein. Casien is too slow to replace whey, and soy abuses animals.

Egg protein has a very high BV...soy is ok, but egg is far superior imo.

I agree.

For me, it's not really an option; I'm fatally allergic to whey. Ergo: I use egg whites.

no prob, man. I'm just sick of people dissing soy. I believe it has it's place in the supplement world.

Yes it is.
Anyone seen the GNC Protein 95 ad?
"There is another whey"
And they are right.
Soy one of them.
Been on Protein 95 for a while now and great results.

That just looks cheap and tatty.

Have you tried a different brand?


Anyhoo, i thought he was getting bad stomach from whey?

why not try a milk and egg protein?

i prefer the taste of it, myself, and i've got issues with whey too.

I agree with Tryska and the TCD, and by the way have you tried using a different brand of whey protien?

milk protein (milk isolates) are a combination of whey and caesin

Each egg white is approx 3-3.5 grams of protien(depending on the size of the egg). What about some milk postworkout? Would be easier to stomach IMO, unless you are lactose intolerant.

Egg protein actually builds houses for Habitat for Humanity, and I hear that Soy just got indicted for spousal abuse.

I bought some Optimum whey and that seems to be ok. I wonder why the other was bothering me? Oh well the optimum tastes better anyways.

over time you may grow out of the allergy. I used to be allergic to aspirin bigtime, I almost took the dirt nap one time.

now I use it all the time when I take ECA's and I have no problems

I know. I found out I had the allergy in '82 and that was the last time I took aspirin until about 6 months ago when I tried an ECA stack.
