I have had a problem these last few months. Each time after drinking my whey protein shake, I get diarrhea within 4-6 hours. Like I said, I've had his problem since end of October. When I don't drink my protein shake I'm fine. I have never been lactose intolerant in the past, but then again, I don't like milk so haven't drank much. Do you have anything on this? And if this is the case, do I have any options for an alternate protein supplement? Thanks for your help!

gemma protein is a non dairy protein with 90-95% absorbtion and lots of aminos. i believe its derived from peas. theres also rice, hemp and both egg and egg white protein. is there anything new your adding to your protein shakes???

You could try taking digestive enzymes with it... However if they are going to be of any use they are going to have to be enteric coated, otherwise they won't survive the acidity of the stomach

One solution and it works. Buy some probiotics. I like using Jarrodophillus, t.hey come in a yellow box, find thme online or most decent health food stores sell them. They are very healthy for you..lol...3 year olds can take them.

Egg protein tends to have less cholesterol anyways...
Healthy N Fit Nutritionals egg protein is what I used for a while.

Long story short ON whey isolates was killing my digestion, leaving me bloated and with the ability to poop through a screen door. I thought for a while that I might be lactose intolerant, but I had my doubts (especially after my wife had a similar experience with my protein).
I finally decided to give whey protein another try and went with All the Whey this time, and have had no problems. So my issue with my ON protein had to be something other than lactose intolerance.
My advice would be to try a different protein company. Just order a 2.5lb container, or ask for a sample.
If it turns out that you are actually lactose intolerant, egg protein may be a good alternative for you.

I found that switching from a Whey Concentrate to a Whey Isolate solved a similar problem I had.

I get the lactose free milk, or whatever the hell it is. I cant drink reg milk without the spray dumps either....sucks. I also carry the lactose tab things in my gym bag, u take 1 like 15 mins before ingesting dairy type stuff.

Maybe an angry ON employee decided to dump a few hundred pounds of laxative in the last batch of their protein.
I literally could only use half of a scoop of the ON at a time, and even this would leave me bloated and feeling bad. I have been using two scoops of All The Whey (approx 44 grams protein) and havent even had the slightest bit of bloating or explosive sh!ts. So the problem was definately the ON whey.
I hope the MM treats you better, if not give All The Whey a try, I freaking love that stuff.

My protein of choice right now is ON 100% Casein and Whey. Maybe I need to switch up brands. I have 5lbs of ATW coming. Maybe that will do me some good.
