Dried Egg white powder vs Whey for bloating
So I find a 5 lb jug of "dried egg white powder" from some farm company (on BB) that is the same price as the ON whey 5 lber....I was wondering if the egg would make a major difference as far as bloating and all those negative digestive effects whey seems to have. For the same price, I figure why not use something that is less of a pain during digestion. Or perhaps use the whey ONLY PWO, and the egg white powder every other occasion. haven't NOT used why in AGES....so figure some of you might have seen the difference between whey and egg recently.

You should use pure whey protein mainly pre and post workout. Eggwhite is good source of protein. It has less Leucine than whey, but it should not make big difference. I don't know how Eggwhites taste since I have not tried pure eggwhite protein. Your bloating is probably due to the lactose in the whey concentrate. You can try whey isolate, or take something for the lactose.

they have a "propeptide" protein at BB at 5lbs for 10 bucks more than 5lb whey or egg whites.....and the "peptopro" is on clearance, and is only 1 lb... they may be similar?

Some local stores sell protein in single packets to try out. you could try isolates and egg whites before you buy if you like. I know Trutein sells samples as well on their site and they have both blends and isolates. Blends are better option though out the day, but egg whites will do fine as well if milk based products give you problems.
Which protein are you using now?

For your interest in one of the best protein supplements available. ProPeptide is concentrated protein with a composition specifically engineered to provide all of the amino acids, protein fractions, and peptides that your body needs to grow lean, healthy, and muscular.*
Probiotic Organisms. ProPeptide contains probiotic organisms that promote a healthy gut and better protein digestion.*
Gums. ProPeptide does not contain added gums. Studies have surmised that fibers (gums) can interfere with protein absorption into the body, resulting in lower protein utilization efficiency. Check out your favorite protein drink mix. Odds are it contains added gums.
We use only Micellar casein, no caseinate. Micellar casein is the natural form of casein in milk. Micellar casein forms the ideal "Time Release" complex in the stomach and intestines.* Micellar casein costs more than the caseinates some of our competitors use, but we know it is worth the expense.
The proteins used in ProPeptide have been screened to ensure that they provide high quantities of fractions, such as lactoferrin, as well as important peptides.
10 grams of glutamine peptide per serving to help reduce muscle tissue breakdown and promote good health.*

OP, you could try a 100% isolate in the off-chance that you bloating is due to lactose intolerance from the lactase (carbs). Keep in mind that lactose intolerance has varying degrees of severity, and simple bloating is an indication of mild LI.

Yeah thanks guys.....I got a 2 lb of the dried egg whites and 2 lb of the propeptide complex instead of a 5 lb of either. I'll just use one then the other, or maybe mix them together for 50 grams each. I'll still take the whey PWO.....I usually get a high quality pure isolate for PWO, but since I was taking it PWO and throughout the day.....I went with the basic cheaper ON whey lately. Once that runs out for PWO I'll get back on the isolate for PWO only. I think I just bloat and that is how it is....

For post training shake buy a Whey Isolate only. Buy one in bulk from somewhere if money is a concern, just make sure with the supplier it's lactose free, and contains only 1 type of Whey - Whey Isolate, for your post workout shake.
