    need a solution for protein shake diarrhea

    taking optimum nutrition double chocolate flavor protein shakes with whole milk (im not lactose intolerant) and will more times than not crap it all out in about 2 hours. i did some searching and have come across suggestions that say to reduce the amount youre taking which i did from 1.5 scoops to 1 scoop per serving,,drinking it slowly which i do by taking little sips over the course of about 20-30 minutes,,but to no avail.
    has anyone who has experienced this come up with a solution? i feel like this is hindering my gains

    Banana Myofusion does that to me, but the chocolate doesn't. Maybe try another ON flavor?

    How long have you been taking it? If it hasnt been to long then this may cause diarhea. You may unknowlingy be lactose intollerent because whey is isolated protein from milk. It could be the brand you are using and id just try another brand if I were you. You can also try mixing it with water,.

    Some people can develop lactose intolerance over time, FYI, but I would try digestive enzymes/probiotics. Probably would give an edge to probiotics, personally.

    bacteria to aid in digestion, like l-acidophilus... you can try those, or you can just try an isolate... id try an isolate first, since if that turns out to not be the culprit, you still at least have a lot of usable protein.

    you can search on bodybuilding.com for protein protein containing digestive enzymes in the formula, or protein products that are lactose intolerant friendly. This may help solve your problem.

    A very respectable brand of protein to look at would be Scivation Whey, comes in 2,5 and 10lb containers and can be pricematched for as cheap as 56$ for the 10lb container.

    All of the flavors were recently reformulated,and we came out with 5lb containers with the limited edition "Strawberry flavor" which individuals have raved about as Strawberry Nesquick.

    The owner Marc Lobliner is lactose intolerant, and because of that made his whey protein this way. It settles easy and mixes on the thicker side, as well as containing a great macro profile of 1g of fat/carb and 22g of protein.

    I second the use of probiotics and digestive enzymes.

    I use a probiotic as my last supp of the day, right before sleep. The idea is it helps clear out all the bad bacteria in your guts and florish it with good bacteria.

    The digestive enzyme I use is Bromelain. It is derived from pineapple. It is a protein specific digestive enzyme. Take right before taking protein.

    Thanks a lot for the info.

    I have the same problem as the OP, I'm not lactose intolerant, but most protein powders tend to cause upset stomach if I do much more than 20 grams a stretch. I thought I was just getting old but I have been wondering if it's just not digesting properly.

    I have not had this problem taking ON Hydrowhey or with Progenex. Good to know Scivation may have an answer also. Thanks again.
    Big Jim, may you rest well and know that you will NEVER be forgotten my friend.

    Some people are semi-lactose intolerant. They can tolerate a bit of lactose. Maybe the reason you can tolerate milk when eating cereal is because you're only consuming small amount of milk. Now that you've increased your dairy consumption, your body can't handle all that lactose.

    - try drinking the whey without the milk and see if it's ok
    - try drinking the whey with skim milk
    - try switching flavors
    - if all fails, try whey isolate

    I can drink ten protein shakes a day and never have any digestion problems but if I drink half a shake with milk I sh*t the bed and I dont have any lactose problems whatsoever eat cheese yogurt whatever. Switch to water it usually fixes the problem.
