As title says Whey Protein and GNC Lean Shake 25 have been causing me to break out.
I KNOW many will answer with “Whey does not cause acne” but I do suffer form an acne problem, went to dermatologist gave me prescription etc. and told me not to take supplements after I mentioned that I did. After a few months I waited for acne to clear thanks to prescription and began taking whey protein to see if this was the cause and after a week acne was back, again I stopped it cleared up and did the process again… same results. Tried with GNC lean shake 25 and same results.
Its hard to meet protein daily intake without a supplement as well as expensive, so those of you that had the same problem which supplements did you take? Maybe non whey/creatine ones? I have seen a few that are like that
Thank you in advance[/quote]
Might be a blessing in disguise. Real food > protein powder/gainer shakes.
Force yourself to eat more and eventually you’ll become accustom to eating more.
I don’t mind eating more but the problem is that a supplement with 30 servings of 25 g of protein is way cheaper than buying 30 servings of anything that will contain the same amount of protein. Also its faster, simpler to make and dont contain much fat for a high amout of protein. I know fat is good but I already meet my fat intake[/quote]
Some people have reported that cutting out powders and eating more food instead has improved their body composition overall and they can get away with eating more.
Sure on paper you’ll be taking in more fat and carbs alongside your protein… but it may actually yield better results.
