  • Whey consumption problem!

    Recently, anytime I have a shake my stomach starts to hurt 5 minutes later. I have been drinking shakes for years with zero problems now all of a sudden, half way through a 25 pounder from TN, I am starting to have major issues. I can't even have a shake without feeling like death.


    I took a week off from eating whey and then had a shake last night. Sure enough, I had the same problem still.

    Anyone have a similar problem, or know what could be causing this? It's really starting to effect how much protein I can get in a day. Any help would be awesome! :llama:

    Are you mixing anything with it? It's possible there is some sort of built up intolerance issue that is going on...

    I used to love bananas, but now anytime I eat one my stomach is aching like a deep dull ache for hours.

      I always just mix it with water.....Nothing has changed in my diet. Just one day the whey started killing my stomach. So I was hoping there might be something I could do about this to help handle the whey better.

          Stop eating whey. There are plenty of protein options out there.

            25 lbs. of whey? How'd you package it/store it? Might be a long shot but some creature might have gotten in there, hehe.

              Honestly sounds like an intolerance.

              I was having similar issues and Scott recommended I rotate my proteins every so often and since then my digestive issues have subsided significantly.

              Possibly try using various protein powders and food sources of proteins for a couple of weeks and see if things shape up for you.

              You can also try using some digestive enzymes or take protease enzymes.

                25 lbs? It sounds like you have one of the recession blends. If that's the case, don't those only come in the free food grade bag? The only reason I ask is that I always opted for protein with the plastic jug with scoop option available for concern of the bag tearing/sitting some place warm too long and becoming easily stale or denatured. That's just my speculation.

                  Yes, but protein powders really help and I don't want to throw out 200$ worth of good whey lol.

                  I keep it in the food grade bag with a clip in a sealed box.

                  This makes a lot of sense. I might have to do that....Sucks I need to order more protein though LOL.

                  Yes that's what I have, but I don't think the whey has become stale or denatured. I have only had it for a month and I keep it in a safe place.







                  I have no idea what this is, but it is so weird. I have never had a problem with whey and now out of no where, a two scoop shake brings me to my knees LOL.

                    I used to have that problem (and sometimes still do) if I had a whey shake with nothing else. I have gotten hypoglycemic more than once from downing a whey-only shake with no other food. Ever since I changed to whey + casein for MRP and always make sure to have other food with a whey-only mix, I've never had that problem.

                      As long as it's good and not contaminated, you can likely slowly mix small amounts of it back into another protein blend that you tolerate, e.g., add a half-scoop at a time and use 1.5 scoops of another blend or some other protein source that you tolerate.

                      (I'd also check out Sammy's info. and see if this still happens when taking the whey with fruit juice, for instance, in case it's a glycemia issue.)

                        Same here, as far as bananas in their natural state are concerned. The deep, dull ache felt like a soft punch in my stomach... If I cook or bake them, or eat them dry, I don't have any issues.

                          Hey scott. When you have people rotate protein sources to keep from building intolerances, how long do you have them use a protein before rotating it?? Also, do you have them completely change the protein source, such as going from whey to just egg or just casein, or could it be something as subtle as changing from cfm whey to a different form of whey, or even a blend of two different forms of whey and or protein??

                            Since I'm sure there are some people with digestive tracks lined with iron and never have any issues requiring rotating food sources (I have several friends like this...lucky them) I'll just comment on my particular case. For me, I had issues eating Greek yogurt every day in portions exceeding 8 oz.. We switched things in and out over a couple of weeks to narrow down the source and that was it. Once I reduced my Greek yogurt consumption digestion improved.

                            This also happened with eating too many sweet potatoes...strange right? And honestly, I can't remember the last time I ate them.

                            As for protein powders, Scott knows I love experimenting with new blends, and I always have several different kinds on hand so anymore it isn't a big problem. However, before building my protein stockpile, after using one blend for about 15 or so pounds worth, I started getting a little gassy from it and now I am sure to move from one kind to another after about 10-15 pounds. For me, the changes were as simple as using a different form of whey, not necessarily going from whey to casein or egg.

                              I'm curious, what carb sources have you found digest the best for you.

                              Definitely not strange at all. Everyone has different bacteria in their gut, different digestive capacities, etc.

                              So far I have found out I digest the quinoa flakes much better then oats, white potatoes and white rice are good, as is brown rice pasta without the bran. Most tropical fruits like banana, kiwi, pineapple, etc are great. I am going to pull out yams and see if doing more of the other stuff makes a differenc (peeling the skin off the yams alone made a difference).

                              Even small things like adding grated ginger root, or just ground ginger powder helps, and spice like cayenne, curry, etc seem to help as well in meals. (and of course beating hcl caps and enzymes).
