Protein and Digestion Issues

I had a question relating to protein. It seems with any protein powder that I drink I’ll shit like a horse. The thing I’m concerned about is that I’m not absorbing enough nutrients from the protein because it’s usually like diarrhea. I’m NOT peeing out of my ass (sorry for the graphic description). It holds a shape but it’s wet.

I hope you enjoyed me describing my shit to you but I had heard that if you’re experiencing diarrhea it is because you’re not absorbing the nutrients correctly. I know it’s nothing serious because stopping protein shakes stops the wet shit.

are you lactose intolerant? Is this Biotest powder?

The two proteins I usually consume are Biotest Metabolic Drive and GNC’s 100% Whey Protein.

I almost possitive I’m not lactose and tolerant. I used to drink 2-3 cups of milk a day and I never had any effects.

My brother, for example, is L and T. He consumes the same types of proteins as me and is fine.

Try each one by itself and see if it’s one or the other or both.

I have tried them seperate and it’s the same.
