Hey guys, im a newbie here. Great forum. When i take in a lot of protein i get wind, not good. Just wondering if there is anything you can do to combat this, other than cutting protein out. Cheers.

Just try to standing in crowds and start blaming the guy next to you, I always try to blame my wife..............

Seriously there's not much you can do about it, high protein = farts, and bad ones at that. On the other hand I'd rather have stinky farts than the horible breath that come with ketosis

It just takes a little time for your system to adjust. I still get it from time to time, but never like I did when I first started to increase my protein intake.

Try taking ginger root.

I take 4 capsules a day and it really helps keep things under control.

Try to wait and only do it when it's really funny or inappropriate. :thumbup:

mines are nasty too..........i noticed that is worst when using any flavored proteins with milk......Try buying unflavored protein, doens't taste like anything sweet but wont give you much gas...actually it's cheaper......hope chris is not hearing this....

I take a lot more than that, but yeah, the stuff definitely works.

Only time I mind farting is when I workout. Every single time I squat or deadlift I cut the cheese, and theres nothing I can do about it.

I'm gonna have to try me some ginger root....my wife can barely come near the exercise room when I'm in there passing protein...lol

Hate those days when their worse than others...can barely stand it myself....it gets downright horrid in that little room sometimes. :fart:

Not sure why some people get this and not others, I'm eating 1.5x my BW in protein every day and I don't notice my farts being worse or occuring more often than any normal person.

not really sure, I got 4 cases for cheap before it got discontinued at one store...the only other places I've seen it it's quite pricey. $12 for 180 caps or something. Doesn't seem like much, but when you use 20 caps/day...

between me and some of the guys i work out with is that if u fart during a heavy rep or a pr attempt, u have to finish the rep no matter what. now if u shart on the other hand, drop the weight and run.

I try to leave them in strategic locations, like elevators, in between double doors/fire doors, enclosed stairways, narrow hallways, revolving doors, etc. It's pretty funny when you're 3 rooms away, or 75 feet down a hall, and from way behind you some woman screams "Oh MY GOD!!!".

Bigjon

when i worked as a bike messsenger, before i would exit a elevator, i would let one go! Then just sit back and wait for the screams. Entertaining i must say. Small things....

Unfortunatly I work in a larg'ish open planned office with about 15 people all around. I'd have to be getting up and leaving the room every 20 minutes which would start looking weird.

I kind of have to lift my leg and squeeze them out slowly hoping not to make a noise. It's a pain because really if there was no one about I would just launch that protein-gas outta there like a bomb.

Best day is Friday when the cleaning comes, while she is hovering up I can walk around and let fly to my heart's content for an hour.

** On a serious note though, sometimes because I can't let fly I get internal farts. When you try and keep them in. Does this cause internal problems?

Holding them in will make you spontaneously combust. ;)

My bro-in-law is so rank that a few minutes after he lets one rip, a chopper hovers over the house, men in bio-hazard suits rappel down from it and seal the premises in plastic just to contain it so it doesnt kill the native wildlife within a square mile....ok, a little far fetched i know but, OMG, he's gotta be up there with the best of 'em.

Problem could be that your digestive system cant digest the increased protein properly, Like mine.....
I fart soooo much, all day, every day, and it reeks, like pickled eggs, even before I added all this protein to my diet I had excessive gas, the only thing that seemed to help alittle was I SLOWLY increased my fiber consumption.. :thumbup:
