diarrhea... question lol
Ok... well after my workout today I had my second whey shake, then waited an hour... had some eggs, another hour and had my 3rd protein shake... about 10mins after that third protein shake my stomach went funny and i went to the toilet and pretty much let out a big load of watery stuff out the back
im wondering (if any of u guys here know anything about this topic and how the stomach / digestive system works) if in that toilet session, would any of it have been my protein shake from 10mins ago or the eggs from an hour before etc just going to waste?
im really paranoid about my protein intake cause lately ive been eating properly getting in the required amount and its working beautifully and my gains are unlike ever before, so im sitting here wondering, would that shake i had 10mins before just have gone straight through the piping and out the other end all to waste? i havent had any problems like this taking my whey i think its a once off i dont even know if thats what caused it?
ive had ppl tell me "when u go toilet u poo out whatever u ate the day before or 8 hours before etc" but if i eat bad crap food like a really cheezy pizza im on the toilet in 15mins anyway, same goes for yoghurts etc so i guess its the milk, but i take my whey with water
what are ur opinions lol, just wondering whether all the important proteins went out the back or if even that whey did cause a reaction in my stomach, would it all have been just food from 8+ hours ago going out the back? there is long long piping of large and small intestines which ur food travels through so im hoping it was just older food which has already been digested and absorbed which was just waiting near the rear door anyway?

If this doesn't happen a lot then you really don't have anything to worry about, but yeah it's probably the way doing it. You have a pretty high amount taken in a small span of time. Try doing post wo shake, solid meal(chicken/oatmeal etc,), then your second shake. Should help the digestion a little bit. As for going to waste, no doubt some protein was malabsorbed, but not enough to effect you if it's not a common occurrence.~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!

yeah i usually try and do something like 40 grams of protein an hour, i gotta pace myself coz im hungry all the time now that im working out
ill have a shake before going gym then i go gy mand come back in 90-120mins and have a 2nd shake, ill wait an hour coz apparently whey takes 60mins to be taken in, then ill have another shake after that or a meal of like 4 full egs 4 whites (thats 40g of protein), then ill give that say an hour to 90mins to get taken in then id take my third final shake if i didnt have it already before the eggs
then ill wait say another 90mins for dinner (usually would end up being about 5pm by now) where ill get maybe 500-600grams of steak or something which is about 100 or so gramso f protein... a lot for one serving so im starting to split that up, ill eat like 250g of meat then wait 2hours and eat the rest later, coz 250g of meat is about 60g of protein so hopefully it doenst go to waste even tho its kidna a lot
each of my meals still leaves me hungry so yea im pacing it even tho im eating 2x more than i was a few weeks ago, im just going by what my body wants

I get that same deal too when I eat lots of protein and even moreso when I have whey since it is milk based. I'm not sure if your digestion rate is like mine (slower) so I can go slightly longer without eating protein (I eat protein every 3 hrs), but try incorporating some type of vegatable every meal. (I never did this, but I do now and it helps out a bit).

if i take my pre workout shake then go gym, by the time i take my first post workout shake its usually 2hrs passed, so thats safe... how long should i wait for my 3rd and should i eat anything before it?

I eat whole foods before the gym so they break down slower, then have a shake afterwards (post workout). The problem is whey protein breaks down so fast which can be a good thing or bad thing. Its just about planning it out.

Yeah, its been shown that people eat by weight/bulk of food, rather than calories/macronutrients. Try eating a lot of vegetables with a moderate amount of meat.

Or add psyllium husks to the shakes, that will bulk them up like a mofo

I cant take whey shakes any more as a result of this, also powdered creatine is destructive to plumbing if I take it. Everything is in pill form for me
