    Protein Farts

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    ~2 months ago I increased my protein to ~250g a day, and along with the calorie increase, I've had some amazing gains. Best I've ever had. BUT (butt)....the protein farts man. I don't always get them, but it happens often enough. They're SO bad, almost like hot rotten moldy food mixed with hot rotten moldy poop. And it lingers too.

    Is there some way to avoid this or minimize it? I'm assuming it's the protein intake, as this is the highest I've ever consistently had.

    You can take Kreon, which is actually exogenous pancreatic enzyme combination. That will help with the digestion.
    Your small intestines can’t completely digest all the protein so some of it passes to your colons, not digested. There the bacteria digests it, and this digestion cause some gas buildup there. Thats pretty normal if you had a big leap in terms of protein intake. Your intestines will adapt that. Meanwhile, you can support your GI tract with exogenous protease.
    Also, if you eat too many eggs, the sulphur in the eggs will cause some nasty farts..

    It could be the type of food being eaten, incorrect amount of fibre, or not enough micronutrtion to assist digestion.

    It’s not the protein it’s the carbs

    I’m eating pretty much only meat and eggs and literally have zero gas

    Try adding a little plain FF Chobani yogurt...if plain is.too boring, try adding a.small.handful of berries.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    This. Actually, for me, the way the eggs are cooked makes a big difference. I can eat 3-4 scrambled and not have too much of a problem. But if I have 2 or sometimes even 1 hard boiled, it's bad. I mean real bad. Like the difference between 'smell THAT, you wankers!' and 'oh sh!t, I just unleashed a WMD. This is how I am going to die? Killed by my own gas?' bad.

    Duude my coworkers are just used to it by now... it stays in my cubicle and it's my gas so I don't mind it much regardless of how foul they could be. But I'm literally ripping ass several times per hour all daaay...

    Hard boiled do the same to me. My gas is so bad it peels the wall paper off the wall.

    Well sir. Obs has. I message his gf often, and when she comes home from work, she needs to open all the windows because Obs has been there all day. She says Obs got IBS and she cant tell if IBS causes the rotten smell or if it comes from Obs ownproduced fish/whey powdermix which he uses 4 times a day.
