This is really bothering me,
Sinse the beginning of lifting weights which for me was 1 1/2 years ago I have been using whey protein. I could easily gussle down and dangit I loved it. This helped my progress alot!
However due to getting married and having a child within the year I had stoped lifting for that entire time a full year of not lifting :(..
Well recently I have been making some changes and had decided for sure I was determined to start lifting agian due to the fact of me losing all my Mussle mass. It put me in a depression almost!
1 month ago I started to get back into lifting slowly while taking my usual whey protein. Now for some reason after taking protein I started to get a stomach ache. I could not believe it.
the next day thinking it was just something else I took more and the stomach aches again, Its almost as if it gives me severe gas or something it just hurts! I also found that I cant drink milk like I use to as well that kind of hurts my stomach as well!
What is going on I thought!! Thinking it was just that brand of protein from GNC, I went to wal-mart to get there brand of protein thinking I probebly was some of the other stuff in the protein itself. The same thing happend.. my stomach hurt after taking the protein.
Now I need protein!! no doubt about that. I cant understand what is going on The milk hurts my stomach now and the protein, I thought I could just mix protein with water instead of milk same thing, stomach aches!!
Now the only 2 things I can come up with of why this is are the following
1:I was diagnosed with a "Hiatal Hernia" which means for me tend to have greater acid induced damage to the esophagus. Now I can only assume whey protein does have alot of acides etc.. so maybe thats whats hurting my stomach.
2: I have noticed Milk hurts my stomach as well as soy milk so maybe im going lactose intolerant?
Needless to say these both are problems for me..
How can I get my whey protein without this effect on my stomach ( And I dont mean more meats etc..)
are there differn't supplement forms besides powder I can try? What do think?
