I've been using Bluebonnet or Jay Robb whey protein isolate for years. I've consistently experienced bad stomach bloating and have been searching for the cause for months now. I was selected to log MAN Sports' PF3 and dropped the protein powder for this. In 2 weeks I'm noticing the stomach bloat is decreasing and I feel much better. So, it seems that I may have an issue taking whey isolate (I know I have a lactose intolerance). Decided from here out to only use BCAAs and real food protein.

sounds like you might be lactose intolerant. try finding a protein which has little or no lactose and you will feel much better. some of the better products use probiotics and such as part of the formula.

No matter how much protein I eat I don't get gassy or bloated. Most of my bloat always comes from carbohydrate sources.
Proteins with fiber sol-2. Cause me the most discomfort.
Other proteins with the same ingredient panel and no fiber sol-2 cause no issue
I'd highly recommend looking into your fat and carb sources first
09-08-2013, 12:29 PM
I'd 1) Assess if you may be eating too much protein 2) Determine if maybe you have an intolerance to something in your current intake.
I pretty much always use a probiotic (Gut Health) and have had some success with NOWs Digestive Enzymes (can't remember the exact product).
How much protein and from what sources do you normal get it from?

Just out of curiosity what is everyone's opinion on an "ok" amount of daily whey incase I do grab some chicken breast to substitute for it?
09-08-2013, 02:48 PM
But I'm dieting and have no problem hitting my protein plus I like to chew my calories. Keeps me much fuller
Plus most proteins are garbage now and loaded with stupid ****
If you go protein I think oxy elite is a great one. I also happen to like trutein and pro complex. Vitamin shoppe pro 24 ain't bad either
But try trader joes they have a cooked 4 pack of chicken/turkey sausage that's like 40g fat and 84 protein per pack and they come cooked and not to expensive

I'll have to say, the less I have supplement shakes for protein and eat whole foods instead, I can notice a big difference in body comp. I wasn't a believer in this before but I've changed my Outlook. Anything with a digestive enzyme complex built in would be a good start but experimenting with different types ie whey, casein, egg could possibly reveal an intolerance you have with a particular source.

Another thing regarding the whey vs whole foods, it would just be easier on the stomach, like less protein farts and GI issues compared to the whey. Whey would still be effective for hitting my protein goals correct? I would still consider it food no?
09-08-2013, 05:52 PM
Whey at the end of the day is a supplement. Whole foods should be your primary focus. Make it happen. Prepare the night before or on any day off and make your meals in bulk so they are ready for when you need them. Preparation is key!
One can't overlook all the micro-nutrients in whole foods. Marco's are definitely important to hit, but micro-nutrients are just as important. Most protein powders won't provide the micro-nutrient benefits that a whole meal would.
So eat eat eat! and then where you can't hit your macro goals, supplement.... Not supplement, supplement, supplement and then eat.
just my two cents

generally every fresh meat you cook is good for 5 to seven days in the fridge. When your real busy and you get a couple free hours light a grill, cook a bunch of shizzle and eat it for days. steaks and chicken all week. Use the broiler for even quicker cook time if you want.

You would of course count it as food in your macros, but whole food will leave you way more fufilled.
4 oz boneless skinless ckic breast
Roughly similar to a scoop of wpc, depending on what brand you use. Double that and you have a 2 scoop protein shake, but your stomach is way more full with roughly the same macros. At least for me, whey does nothing to fill my belly.
