Months now - since I've switched to the stereotypical weightlifter's diet - I have been plagued with a constant barrage of stinky farts. I feel silly asking about it, but really, it's past being amusing. To give an example of my diet, I'll show you today's.

WTH is causing this? It lasts ALL DAY, and they STINK

FYI, if you notice the low calories, it's cause I'm only 147 lbs and cutting for another pound or two - I'm short. :)

Im not really sure exactly what causes it but here is what i have found...
I used to eat VERY small amounts of fat, heaps of protein, and average carbs. I also constantly let nukes rip, and wasnt popular for it... I found that eating youghurt with live cultures helped for a bit.
I changed my diet to include much more fats, and similar carb protein percentages, aswell as plenty of water. This did the trick for me, but im not sure of the science behind it..
Maybe someone else might be able to give you something more credible...

Also had this problem. Went to a more balanced diet and it went away.

It was funny for the entire time though... Cant tell you how many killer laughs i got because of it.

Was going to ask this same question. Honestly these so called "protein farts" are the most disgusting thing. My intake of protein has gone up since I started lifting seriously. And along with this came the deadliest gas. The smell lingers so bad.

lol great topic....... anyways, have you considered the egg to be the culprit of your stench? I remember eating tons of egg whites and man did they **** me up.

I think protein powder, meat, eggs and milk conribute to these. So basically, you're screwed ;)

Any major change in your diet is going to cause GI problems at first. Combined with the fact that you're eating more protein is going to make it worse. After a while the gas and other distress should go down a bit. Have you tried Beano? It might help.

Bwhahaha, thanks for that MariAnne :p.

I've been pretty good with gas, and I eat a fair bit. My carbs are generally alot higher than the average BB though, and I get about 30g of fibre too soooo.

Protein shakes are what's messing me up. Normally have a cup of milk, 1 scoop, and a Tbsp of peanut butter... few hours later I get crazy cramps and diarrhea it sucks.

I hate it when I let one go when Im trying to sleep and the covers hold it so it vents towards my head. They wake me everytime :) and they happen like every 15 minutes

Just lay on your side and leave your butt uncovered. Not only does it keep the fart out of the sheets, but it also directs it away from your nose. :cool:

It's been happening to me ever since I started pounding the protein. The worst is when I'm in the crowded gym on a Saturday (like yesterday) and I have no safe area to release in. I had to go into the stretching room in the middle of my dead lifts and let loose, all the while praying somebody did'nt come in! lol

I don't know why, I'm the kind of person that I never fart, or rarely fart! I'm serious, and no one believes me, on top of that, if I fart, it doesn't even smell bad, same thing, when I take a dump, it doesn't even smell at all. I must admit, I take digestive enzymes daily, don't believe in eating a ton of food a day or eating tons of protein, and I eat foods that don't cause gas. Also, I'm very regular, I do number 2 about 3-4 times a day, and I don't even eat that much.

Someone had mentioned yogurt had helped them out, a similar effect can be had by supplementing acidophilus into your diet. Lactobacillus acidophilus is a lactic acid producing bacteria thought to have beneficial effects on digestion and overall health. This seems, for me atleast, to curb the ill-effects of a higher protein life style. I use a combination of Papaya Enzyme and acidophilus, which seems to do the overall trick.

A few quick notes about it:

** When cycling up the acidophilus, you will let em' rip for a few days while the flora is replenished in your gut.
** You need to cycle off every 1-2 months, to shock you system back into its old fart creating ways. Acidophilus seems to lose its power after this period, so you need to start the cycle over again.
** I take about 1 - 2 tabs per day, 800 million active cultures I believe, and supplement in the papaya around meal time.

I just think it's funny becuase who is going to insult a freaking huge weightlifter if he lets one loose. I mean honeslty half of the people on this board could walk into any room rip and wouldn't even be snickered at lol. So in the end I wouldn't try to get rid of the gas I'd just lift more and get bigger lol.

Man, I love Nitrean but it makes me rip so much ass. At work, I need to set outside every 10-20 minutes just cause the fumes are so overwhelming. Plus, Nitrean makes me have to drop the kids off by the pool up to 4 times a day.

Funny thing is, I get really gassy when I'm cutting or on a lean diet. Once I start eating like an animal, the farts go away... very strange how that works out. if i eat healthy, i fart. if i eat fastfood and chili cheese fries, i get nothing.

Hilarious thread :D

I think it's the eggs for me - I can actually smell them in my farts. I think the 10 fish oils I take per day also help. It's gets even worse on Sunday's when I've been drinking beer all day - my wife wakes me up in the middle of night saying "you're farting again!!!!". LOL.

[My response, as inspired by my teenaged kids who are right behind me and who completely control my life.]

I'm shocked!

You guys [and gals] talk about this gas business as if it were a bad thing.

I say, sit back, enjoy it, make some use of it, and smile.

How many of you have kids, or at least young neices and nephews? C'mon, you know you've been wanting to play the "pull my finger" game since your grandpa did it to you years ago. Now's your chance. And you can do it all day long. And now you can actually light their hair on fire while you're at it, and really make it exciting.

Or, you can let 'em slip silently in your cubicles at work, or in a crowded college classroom. Think about the possibilities. 372 students trying their best to stay awake during a dry lecture in an auditorium sized Chemistry 101 classroom. What better way to introduce students to the chemical components of methane gas and it's effects on human respiration?

Or walking around the mall. Go into Abercrappie and Schittz and let one fly while you try on some of the latest fashions.

The possibilities are as intriguing as they are endless.

Just use your imaginations, people. :idea:

Honestly, whey and dairy are the only things that give me lots of gas.

I stopped using pure whey (Nitrean) and the gas is nearly nonexistent, and I consume 200 or so grams of protein a day.

i hear ya guys, been wondering about all this myself.... Ive always had some pretty brutal farts but they were pretty much containable. After I started lifting in high school i told my girlfriend tough like you gotta deal with it cause I was tired of running out of the room and hiding it, she was fine with it, but now after dealing with my farts for 5years she is getting tired of them lol. I just started using ATLs Max Mass stack and holy crap are my farts brutal, cant hold them in at all just gotta let em go and I know its from the new protein and stuff because its a different smell then before. Best part about the Maxiums and Opticen is it has made me pretty damn regular, i always have to clean the pipes every morning and night. Worst part is my stomach always feels all gassey and crappy all day, but whatever it is what it is.

i swear mine can melt faces. ive let some so bad i drove myself out of the room. letting them under the sheets is god awful. but i had that problem before i changed my diet and i still have it.
i must have some putrid rotting fecal matter in my intestines causing it.

I was wondering recently why the hot girls these days are going for the skinny heroine looking guys. Well; this thread pretty much explains it, hahaha.

Check this out though; get a juicer and a head of cabbage. Cut everything off and juice the root (the hard brick at the bottom of the cabbage). Choke it down. I wouldn't actually recomend doing this unless you're th worlds biggest jerk! Eszekial might try it, lol. Anyhow; I'm going to desribe to you what will happen.

I just got into using a juicer at the time ( about 4 years ago). I was out of apples and stuff, and I was feeling brave with some garlic. Juiced garlic is horrendous stuff, never assault your taste buds with that; they will never forgive you! Anyhow; I love purple cabbage, it's delicious. So I figured I'd juice the left over root/stem dealy. It produced a pretty decent amount of liguid. Well; I took a tiny sip and it was AWEFUL! But I wanted to chug it, so I pinched my nose and went for it. I immediaty lost controll of my legs and hit the floor hard. I was in an egg position clutching my stomach shaking for about five minutes. This happened ''Immediately''. I crawled on my stomach to my room and climbed up onto my bed and almost lost consciousness from the pain. Well; the only things that happened for the next hour was pain, god aweful horrifying pain like you could never believe. Then came the smell of brimstone and the intestinal hatred of satan himself. I've never heard a human being fart so loud. My mom thought a motorcycle had started in our driveway! The relief felt like morphine. But slowly over the course of a minute the pain came back to full level hell. And BOOOOM, then morphine all over again. You guys think your farts stink? You are WRONG! Until you try this; you will never know what hell smells like! It was like an elephant was in my room!!! I had my pillow over my face and I could still smell it. So I went outside. It was a very windy day, and I started walking into the wind. I was very embarassed to be outside, but I lived in the boonies at the time by a river. I wouldn't doubt that people thought a helicopter was flying low, lol. I was walking into a strong wind; and I couldn't ecape the farts!

Long story short; kids do stupid things. I will never do that again. However; if you're adventurous and owe your friends a good prank; try it. And for the love of God; put it on youtube! Put the whole stinky adventure online from the cutting of the cabbage to the last fart, haha. You'll get ten million veiws I'm sure. BUT, *Caution* *Warning*: This is emergency room type of pain. This is broken femure in a vat of acid pain. If you can't handle pain, especially stomach pain, never attempt this. I doubt it could kill anyone to do this. But your farts may suffocate a rhinoceros.

I really didn't think while I was reading this thread that I could top everyone elses grossness. Then I remembered the time I juiced a cabbage root. Uggggghhh.

Etcarl - that was a crackup!
It's the extra protein that does it. Top if off with beans, cabbage, eggs, crab cakes and wash it down with beer and you've got yourself one helluva fart mixture built.
Two things I've used in the past - Beano, it really works; and extra BCAAs. Now, I just deal with it.....and so does my wife and others.:nod:
I've had it bad enough that in a car with no heater and it's snowing outside (about 25 degrees), we had the windows down for fresh air......and it took about an hour for it to dissipate.
If you're worried about it in the gym, learn to do drive-bys. Walk past some one else and let loose quietly. Everyone will think they did it.

I've got a large list of fart-situations, I'm a true fartologist.

Your protein intake seems about right. Try cutting your carb intake in half for a few days and see if that helps. I used to have this problem as well and I'm still a little gassy but they don't stink and its far less frequent now.
