    Help, cant digest protien

    Well i have been consuming about 150 grams of protien through drinks for the last year. I have been off steriods for 2 weeks now. Yesterday i had to go to the doctor because i thought i had ahernia. After the doctor took x rays of my stomach she said i had bowles stuck all throughout my stomach. This is wierd because i go like twice a day. She asked if i have been taking in alot of protien and if i eat fruits and veggies. I do not really eat veggies but i am starting now. My question is now that i am off cycle should i lower my protien intake, and is there something i should take to help digest the protien.
    I have never had so much pain.

    1-Always stay with the rule of thumb 1.5-2 grams of protein per pound of weight in order to build/maintain muscle...1g/lb would be the lowest i would go

    2-Add a granola bar to your diet and take a fiber supplement like metamucil or other brands

    3-increase water intake greatly, drink water every chance u get

    4-U might want to change your protein drink, there are other proteins out there that are almost lactose free and are very tolerable even to the most sensetive of digestive systems. I recommend Isopure protein or another great one that tastes great and is cheap is Solid Whey wich is an excellent bang for the buck.

    Some people can't take the Whey. Maybe try Egg Protein powder or soy is another alternative. One good rule of thumb though is: never drink 2 shakes back to back! Always have a solid (REAL) meal between them.
