Hello, I asked Dr. XXXXXXX about the symptoms I was
Hello again and thanks for follow up,
kindly answer this question-
How were your symptoms when you stopped having protein shakes for few days?
Was pain there at that time also?
How much fiber are you having every day?
What is the source of your fibers?
How much protein per day you are on?
How much protein were you taking before having shakes per day?
Do you pass gas?if yes does it smells like rotten egg?
Take hydrolysed protein.
Aside from the tightening in my abdomen over the weekend, that is completely gone-I think that you want to say that your stomach was relieved after you stopped taking shake.
See most of the protein shakes contain either raw protein or protein concentrate which is hard for the body to digest that too a single time ingestion of about 24 gram protein.Your powder contains isolate raw and egg protein all three are difficult to digest.
If you want to take shake i would suggest you to start with Optimum nutrition Hydolysed whey/or any hydrolysed form of protein.Its almost digested form of protein(and is therefore costly).
Take isabghul husk for fibers.10 mg thrice daily.Soak it in XXXXXXX warm water and after 15 minutes have it.
You have mentioned your sex as male and are on female shake so i would consider you as female.
Don'tr go on bro science unless you are building muscles all you need is the protein equivalent to your weight in kg.
For eg f your weight is 55kg you need to take 55kg of protein maximum.
Protein as such is hard for body to digest so give your body time.You can also divide scoob of powder in three parts and have it 8 hourly.Your body could easily cope up with that and at the end of the day total intake is same.
Life style modification etc is a way to live life so don't try to speed up things.Increase things slowly listen to your body.If you could not digest 24 gram take 12 gram or 6 gram and increase it slowly over weeks or months.
As of now stop taking this shake.Bring hydrolysed whey protein and take it as per the ability of your body to digest it.
Believe me 12 gram of well digested food would help you melt much more fat and gain many more muscles then 30 gram of food giving you gas and gross indigestion.
Thanks and get well soon.
