Everyone on the board seems to be eating 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per lb. I have a very hard time even getting 1 gram per lb (I weigh 200 at about 12-13% BF). As you can tell, I do not have a stunning metabolism or anything. Even when I have quick digesting meals like Whey Isolate, low fat, and relatively simple carbs, my appetite is just killed. It is not lactose intolerance. Even when I try to very gradually introduce higher amounts of protein I eventually get very bloated. I try to have 6-8 small meals; no help. As I said, I avoid most fats to speed digestion but that only helps to a small degree. I have tried low carb, high fat, high protein but that is worse (although good for dieting). Now I would eat low fiber too, but then I run into problems…a person can’t just eat protein with simple carbs all day long. Anyone else have this problem? Most people seem to have a hard time preventing themselves from eating too much. I feel that I may be limiting gains because of this.
Here you go Chris. Here’s your opportunity to

Sounds like our digestion is less then optimal. Try digestive enzymes and see if it helps (best are plant based ones e.g. simulase by tyler)
