I think my protein drink is giving me bad diarrhea... there, I said it. (Totally a TMI topic)
I'm considering dropping my protein supplement for a week to see if it cures the diarrhea. If that does then at least I have it nailed down. If I find that it is the protein drink then I guess I will have to change to another form of protein supplement???? I've done some research on-line and it seems that there is a percentage of people that have problems with whey protein.
Has anyone had to switch protein supplements because of diarrhea and have you had better luck with another type?
I have to admit that I kind of hope it's not the protein drink I am using now because I like the flavor, but I am going to guess that it is with everything that I have been reading about some people having issues with whey protein.
I'm just not sure if it is the whey, too much protein, or something else. So for me it's time to troubleshoot the problem.
No harm is experimenting and switching proteins. We are lucky to have so many types readily available to us. Just don't stop.

Coupled with lactose intolerance early out, protein drinks were impossible. I tried soy proteins, and they just taste horrific, and/or the texture was repulsive.
