    Exclamation Allergic to WHEY, help!


    For some strange reason I am highly allergic to whey protein as I will vomit within half hour of ingestion.

    I am currently looking to bulk up, is there any other safe alternatives out there?



    and yes I eat my chicken!

    You don't "need" whey but it's cheaper and convenient.

    Egg protein is your best bet.

    Are you lactose intolerant?

    That could be part of the problem, but as listed above there are a ton of different type of protein instead of just Whey and they are all reasonably similar.

    Whey Isolate is lactose free, I would look into LGs new Gemma Protein.

    You could get some isolate samples from all the whey and see if that is the problem

    I would go after the soy protein. High in arginine! But i dont think the lactose is the problem. ALmost all of your products are lactose free. And since your trying to bulk up i would go after the buffalo, beef, Alot more. Not so much the lean meat. You would be getting alot more fat this way. Make sure your up on your carbs and dont forget the lovely fishoil. Get good stuff not the cheap 1000 pills for 2 bucks!!!

    if your not lactose intolerant and milk doesnt affect you negatively then it would surprise me, since the protein composition of milk protein is 80% casein and 20% whey. soy, and egg protein is great, like everyone else said. in addition, add some casein to take b4 bed; it digests at a much slower rate, so you wont be catabolic.

    I like a protein powder called NitroFusion. It has more BCAAs and glutamine than whey and it contains no dairy, no soy, and no animal protein. Its a blend of brown rice protein concentrate, pea protein isolate, and artichoke protein to make a complete protein with an amino acid profile similar to human mother's milk. The taste takes some getting used to, but it is definitely hypoallergenic! Its also all natural without the artificial sweeteners or colors or flavors.

    as far as the above statements, your both right and wrong.

    your right because your diet will provide you with protein,

    but your wrong because the protein is inferior to wheys bioavailability.

    i would do half and half between shakes and whole food.

    you dont neccesarily need a protein supplement but i personally feel like i do for atleast 2 meals of the day due to the better bioavailability.

    "hydrolyzed" whey could definitely be yak-worthy - if it's in what you've been using, stop.

    egg protein powder as mentioned before is probably your best bet, highly bioavailable, and used to be the standard for which protein was judged. The GEMMA protein (pea) also looks promising, but it's still a veggie and lacks the "oomph" of a dairy or animal source... i have no evidence for my reasoning, just a gut feeling. Wheat Protein is now carried by some reputable companies, but that also has the veggie issue, and gluten intolerance is very common so you may want to be careful with that.

    As far as speed is concerned, I would go with some EAAs or BCAAs and add some Glutamine or Glutamine Peptides to go with that. If you can get a good amount of that pre, during, post-workout then you are covering your most important protein requirements of the day IMO, since speed is of the essence during that critical time. If you have the $, go ahead and use that first thing in the morning with a quicker digesting carb too.

    aside from workout times, and morning, going with the other protein sources should be perfectly fine, including whole food sources, which are the best IMO.

    I am always a fan of WPI, and I am lactose intolerant. I say hit up some ATW WPI and it should be helpful. If that doesnt work, I have heard some interesting things about Gemma protein

    I do feel alittle bloated after ingesting whey, but thats the only side effect I get. Does Now make egg protein in larger amounts then just 1lb per container?
