View Full Version : protein shakes give anyone else the sh*ts

04-17-2006, 08:26 PM
Just wondering if anyone else has very smooth bowl movements after drinking a yummy protein shake.

I had
1 cup of 1%milk
3 scoops of nitrean
1 tablespoon of np
1 tablespoon olive oil

= ****s for me

somedays they do me in.. some days not

Definatly the days i have 2 cups of milk. It comes out like 2 cups of milk.

I bought some Dairy Digestive Supplements to see if they help out. But i'm pretty sure i'm not lactose intolerant. Never had problems with milk before. Just protein shakes.

Anyone else relate?

Make sure you eat enough fiber through out the day.

I'm great with it. The only time my bowl movements fail to be normal is when I eat ****ty food.

It gives me pretty bad gas, and If i have TOO much protein in one shake, i may get some odd effects. i have found that eating carrots counter acts the deadly bowl movements or methane venting at odd times.

I heard that they give you the ****s too. I had one today........so I'm guessing I will find out!

overdosing on creatine(taking to much) gives you gas.

Certain brands destroy my digestive system.

I know its coming because i get abnormaly deadly gas.

Happened again today although i had my shake at around noon today and its almost 11 this evening. Not sure how the sh*t cycle works but that seems a little long to digest.

if it's on the days you have 2 cups of milk, it sounds the milk is the one that's causing it.. not the protein powder. you could be lactose-intolerant.....
