The title pretty much explains it. I have used both water and milk and get the same results. I'm using GNC 100% Whey, chocolate. When this one is up I will switch to AtLarge but for now any suggestions?

how much water do you take with it?
and how large is your serving size?
IMHO stick with water and increase your water intake until you no longer have gas.
This did it for me.
I drink roughly 40oz with my shakes. My shakes are 1.5 cups of powder (pro/carbs)

I've heard that Whey Protein Concentrate causes gas, and that Whey Protein Isolate is easy on the digestive system. I can't remember where I saw this information, but it might be worth looking into.

Yeah - Eat, fart, and be merry.

What's the big deal about gas? I don't get it.

LOL, over the past month ive noticed the same thing, but ive been taking protein WAY longer than that. I have started eating Tuna over the past month, so I think that is whats doing it, or maybe its a combination of something...
