View Full Version : Is the body less able to digest during physical activity?

05-21-2007, 02:45 PM
So I have a problem with protein shakes. Mainly, they upset my stomach and give me the s****. But it's strange, and almost conditional. I've been taking papaya extract to help digest them, and it seems to help IF I don't do anything after I have my shake. If I just sit and watch tv or something, everything's fine. But I had one today and then went to work where I'm moving constantly (waiter) and my stomach felt awful; cramping and gurgling. Would being active lessen my body's ability to absorb the shake? I would've thought the opposite that being active meant my body would want to absorb faster.

Which brand of protein are you using?Have you tried switching around to find one you like?

Are you mixing protein with water or milk?
