    do protein shakes bloat you up ? or makeyou retain water?

    i work out at 530 am and i notice when i have my 1 scoop of isopure and 1 scoop of vp2 it makes me feel bloated i have 3 scoops of isopure zero carb a day and 1 scoop of vp2 a day will these make me retain any water or make my face look puffy ?

    are you mixing with water?

    i used vp2 for a while but didnt feel bloated.
    I use optimum now and i love the cost and dont mind the small carbs

    I get about 300 grams of protein per day in the form of Zero Carb Isopure and Optimum 100% Whey and have noticed the same thing. It really dosent make a lot of sense, but they do seem to cause water retention for some reason.

    YES, most protiens have fair bit of sodium and generally make you bloated, something that helps a bit, is let the shake sit for a bit until all the bubbles go out, less air=less bloat. 300g of protien from shakes is way to much, eat real food, pretty easy to get 300g from real food, then just 1 or 2 shakes to top of intake, if dieting cut shakes out, and you'll find you look tighter.
