    Gas issue after workout


    I have a problem with severe gas 2 hours after I workout. As soon as I finish a workout, I have a protein shake like I've always had in the past, with no problem. However, two hours later I now seem to have severe gas and it lasts for a good 3-5 hours, no matter what type of post workout shake I have (it can be whey isolate, slower proteins, fast or slow carbs, I still have the same gas issue). I don't know why it happens. Does anyone else have this problem? Or do you have any theory on why is this happening?

    This only happens after I workout, no matter what time of the day or what I eat. And I'm not lactose intolerant.

    I'd definitely try the additional water tactic ^^^^ before you try anymore supplements.

    I have really bad gas too. It becomes uncomfortable at times. It comes about 45mins into my workout then last for about 4-5hrs. I will try the excess water. Hopefully this helps.

    "no matter what type of post workout shake I have (it can be whey isolate, slower proteins, fast or slow carbs, I still have the same gas issue)"

    Is there something in common with all of your shakes, such as the presence of dairy?

    Other than that, bodybuilders generally have higher caloric intake than the rest of the population, a fact that leads to larger amounts of undigested food in the digestive tract and gas.

    There is something called slippery elm bark that helps calm down the GI tract better than just about anything else. It can be purchased in bulk and is very cheap. A teaspoon of that in hot water is very helpful. If you want to get creative, you can add some activated charcoal or turmeric extract to the mix.

    Good luck.

    I have this too. Water helps, but if Im going any where near a female, the amount of water I have to drink doesn't exactly boost my self of steam. I'm thinking about trying activated charcoal. I hear it works wonders, but we really don't know if it has any long term health effects. I'd hate to think it was killing healthy bacteria or blocking some nutrient etc...
