Hi all, I just registered here and forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong place.
I'm a female, 5'6" and currently weigh about 100 pounds. According to the BMI calculator, I should be around 115 pounds to be at a healthy weight.
I've searched around the forum for dairy free weight gainers but haven't seen any posts with a situation similar to mine.
I was about 95 pounds a few months ago and gained about 7 pounds making me 102, the heaviest I've been. I was eating lots of dairy products everyday and was excited to be gaining weight. However, I started to notice my skin was getting really bad and was getting breakouts.
I decided to stop dairy to see if maybe that was what was causing the breakout, and sure enough, my breakouts did stop and my skin was great again, so I'm sure the dairy was the problem. I didn't have any stomach issues though that many people experience with dairy. Skin was the only problem.
However, now that I've stopped dairy, I lost 2 pounds and it's depressing to see the scale going down every day.
I went to the vitamin shop and asked the sales person for any dairy free weight gainer, and he said the only thing he could think of was Isopure. He said it had dairy in it, but it was, I think isolate dairy?? Not sure.
Has anyone tried Isopure? And would you recommend it in my situation?
It seems there are no dairy free weight gainers, but if any of know of any, please share. I'm desperate!
And if you have any other tips, please let me know, I'd appreciate it.
P.S. I don't think lactose free is any good. It has to be dairy free.
