Lately I've experimented with a couple of different weight gainer shakes, usually yielding 600 - 700 kcal per serving. This week I bought the cheapest one I could find, costing me a bout 40 bucks for 20 shakes. Not bad, right?
In their "Proprietary Blend" of High and Low GI carbs, they neglect to mention what sources these come from. IE Lactose, or milk sugar. For those who aren't lactose intolerant, this may not be a problem. However, the "Average American" typically is.
My point is, whey protein is just that. Protein. But an unknown amount of maybe lactose in a shake? What the hell? I've been having two of these per day, and all of a sudden, WHAM!
Diarrhea, diarrhea, diarrhea everywhere.
Has anyone else had a problem with gainer shakes and digestion? If so, please tell me what kind so i know what NOT to buy.
