Ok, I had my first protein shake today. Strawberry flavor, 35g protein. Didn't taste that bad, it's workable, heh.

However, about an hour or two after I drank it, I sat on the toilet and erupted, like something wasn't sitting right inside me. Is this coincidence or likely due to the shake?

Should I get myself adjusted to the shakes more slowly? I don't plan on having more than a few a week, they are very expensive.

Give it a few days, that reaction will go away.

You should buy some Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey. Its probably the cheapest you'll find around and it tastes great with 22g of protien per scoop.

I got a 5lb tub of it for about $45 Canadian, if you live in the US you'll probably find it for about $25. If you want more it also comes in like 10lb bags.

I recommend the vanilla because it tastes good in just water, awesome in milk and is good for mixing with other things like bananas.

P.S. No ass explosions from it either :D

I should also note. I'm a small guy, 134 pounds, so maybe that entire shake was too much for my system to handle. I had it about 2.5 hours after a workout last night. I'll try having another after my next workout and see what happens.

I'm only about 140lbs and I drink 44g protien shakes with no problems. I don't know, might just be the way you are though. Doesn't hurt to try again. :)

I would drink the protein shake immediately after training along with some simple carbs. If the problem persists I would recommend a different brand of protein.

I like protein shakes. Never had a problem, prefer chocalate. Theres nothing special about them my guess is it coincidence or just making a big deal out of it. Its not a magic powder.
As far as price goes it acutally cheaper sometimes then food. Optimum whey 5lbs cost about $32-35. 72 22g servings. Your not gonna get 72 chicken breast for $35.

I remember Fuel Plex MRPs gave me some god awful rank gas.

So try Optimum's 100% whey.

Fuel Plex is the product of the bowel-devil so if that's what you're taking, buy something else fo shizzle next time. It gave me some bouts of explosive diarreah, that's for sure. :eek:

Also, ditch any berry flavored anything when it comes to bodybuilding. In most instances, primarily with MRP's and protein powders, chocolate is generally the most palatable.

You might also want to try taking a smaller dose and working up to something larger. Your system might not be used to 30 grams of protein in such a quick dose (ie a shake versus a slowly eaten steak).

I also recommend Optimum Whey, ...chocolate and choc. mint taste great.

I am not afraid to poop. But I kind of think we're over reacting here. I

LOL @ Berserker

I can't say that I ever got the squirtsees from whey. Try Optimum like the others said.
