So I am fairly new to the working out scene and have started taking some protein. I have tried a couple of my friend's stuff and my stomach keeps hurting and I feel bloated after I drink it. Is this just because my body isn't used to the protein? Should I just push through it? Are there any recommendations for which protein will be best for me to try?
Thanks in advance
my question is what was your daily intake of food looking like prior to adding in protein?
i have trouble with protein also....but for me its the issue of i never really eat anything that has much protein. id live the rest of my life off fresh fruits and veggies and never eat meats again and be satisfied....but when i got serious about losing weight and gaining muscle, i made the necessary changes, the biggest being adding protein into my life....i started super small, just small scoops of protein (think like 1/3 a scoop at first).......before when i tried to just go straight into using protein, regardless of how great the quality the protein was, i got so sick to my stomach. severe cramps. it was awful.
this is not the solution for everyone, but perhaps you just need to start out slowly.
