    high protein diet without the odor


    I'm switching from a 55C/25P/20F diet to a high-fat / high-protein diet, 25C/35P/40F. I have trouble with high-protein diets.. not only do they make me thirsty but the farts are really bad. Whey is a major culprit. I switched to NOW whey isolate, which has reduced the odorous problem compared to the cheaper 80% whey, but still the problem exists to some extent. (it's not a lactose problem btw.) Are there are any other convenient protein sources or brands of whey that don't cause horrific farts? I just can't get 270g of protein from chicken and tuna.

    My co-workers would appreciate a reply.

    You'll get used to it.. Don't worry. You learn to hold em and release where it's appropriate.

    NutraPlanet.com: 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard (10 lb) By Optimum Nutrition

    This has an added enzyme comple that drastically reduced the number of EPISODES that I have.The youll get used to it angle only sounds good as long youre the giver and not the receiver.Myself Id hate to be in the presence of someone who was unloading the kind of gas that I used to get.

    I cleared a whole room out at my job that would not allow people to enter for a good 10 minutes. It was horrible.

    I solved this problem by taking probiotics with my protein shakes. I use a product called PB8, made by NutritionNOw.com but I purchase it locally. It has 8 different types of live bacteria, does not need to be refridgerated.

    Today, most protein drinks use amino acids; they are already digested. Digestive enzymes at that time would be a waste of money. With solid, undigested foods, digestive enzymes would be helpful.

    Probiotics are the live bacteria that should be living in your digestive system. They also provide your main protection from candida (yeast) and other funguses, which produce a good portion of the gas in your intestines.

    I neither said nor inferred that the amino acids in protein powder acted as digestive enzymes.

    Im sure you know this but I believe what is TRYING to be said is since the proteins have already been broken down into their base form (amino acids) they are now bioavailable so no more breakdown needed or possible.

    well what i'm unsure of is whether that means its easily "digestable" ... because i know whey shakes give me gas ... i've read many people say that digestive enzymes stop this problem

    Well if theyre now in amino acid form (the building block for all tissue) then they dont need to be digested (broken down) so they can be taken as is into the blood stream.

    Whey gives me gas also but the probiotics Im taking along with the digestive enzymes in Optimium Nutritions whey cut it down to almost nothing.The only time I get gas now is if I make a protein shake with milk first thing in the AM on an empty stomach.

    So from experience:yes digestive enzymes and probiotics work.
