    Problems Digesting Protein?

    So I am wondering if I am the only frustrated lifter that cannot supplement protein. For some reason, I cannot take ANY protein powders. Within 20 mins, my stomach is bubbling, and even into the next day, things are not "normal".

    I am lactose intolerant, so since whey is derived from dairy products, it's a no-go. What is frustrating is that I have tried whey protein isolate (that GNC swore would be fine), same issue. I tried soy protein, egg white protein, and same upset stomach with them all. I have tried Muscle Milk which is supposed to be lactose free, but it is no better. I have to get all of my protein from food sources, so it's tough to get 200+ grams, so I REALLY WISH I could supplement with a shake here or there.

    Has anyone else had this issue? I even tried Carnivore brand protein that is supposed to be from beef, and still same issue. I can eat beef, chicken, eggs, etc without a problem, but when it comes to supplementing protein, its a bad situation! I feel like I may have a problem digesting the protein, but don't know of any other way to get my protein besides the food source.

    AGREED. However, It would be SOOOOO nice (and cheaper) to be able to down a protein shake to get 40g of protein. This week, I am going to add beef jerky to the diet. Low cal, high protein, but just so freaking expensive!!

    Try brown rice protein brah, easier on the guts.

    Edit: go easy on the beef jerky, tons of sodium and probably not the best thing if you have stomach issues.

    Well, just ordered some brown rice protein from bb.com tonight! I would be SOOOO happy if I could get another 20-40g of protein via shakes in my day!

    With bb.com's rediculously fast shipping, I'm sure I'll be able to update everyone on how it is by the weekend!

    Thanks for the suggestion, never knew it even existed.

    There's a chocolate brand out there - my pop uses it, says it tastes good.

    I haven't been able to supplement any sort of whey powdered protein in almost a year... year and a half now. I suddenly came down with some huge stomach issues and my body could not digest it. I don't want to get into details, but it was not pretty.

    lets see...you have choices..or rather options you can try..

    egg white protein try it again with the following...
    bromelain, protease, amylase, lipase, cellulase, ect ect (digestive enzymes)
    probiotics (healthy bacteria found in yogurt or supplements)
    prebiotics (FOS, inulin ect)
    lactase (breaks down lactose ie milk sugar)

    theres also a few lactose free wheys running around although I'm not a big fan of the ion-exchange filtration process as it denatures the protein (takes out naturally occuring growth factors and immune enhancing goodies)

    gl

    EDIT: theres also always free form aminos

    I have only tried the plain stuff (Source Naturals). Biochem has a decent looking vegetarian protein blend, though I haven't tried it.

    brown rice protein

    Well I just got my brown rice protein today. I just tried 1 tbs. w/4oz OJ....it is pretty brutal tasting..BUT if I can digest it w/out issue - it's not THAT bad, and I'll deal w/it!

    11g protein per tbs is pretty good!

    I got the Jarrow brand from bb.com

    I had a client who had the exact same problem. There were only a few proteins she could use.

    All of them were pure Isolates. I believe she could tolerate New Whey by IDS.

    As someone else already posted, I highly suggest you try adding digestive enzymes (especially protease) to all of your high protein meals.

    digestive enzymes, probiotics and multiple sources of fiber

    i dont have the worlds best digestive system, and using these supplements has done wonders.

    NOW brand products suffice for most instances, Genomyx will be putting out a probiotic product soon that should be good called gut health
