Did anyone else out there experience this? Please do share? I’m intrigued!
So yeah I had been reading about protein pancakes and I decided to make some to try them out for myself especially when I go running lots, thought they would be a good thing to eat. THINK AGAIN! So off I went to Holland and Barrett to purchase a tub of Whey protein on Monday night. I also bought Meridian Smooth Almond butter which is so DIVINE, I can’t stop spooning it from the jar.
But after I ate the protein pancakes, (2 and a half) I felt so stuffed, like abnormally stuffed. like Christmas day stuffed but 10 times worse, just to put it into perspective here!! Then I actually was SO BLOATED like I was six months preggers and in actual pain. Then I googled the side effects that you can get from whey protein and it was bloating and pain around the stomach area especially if you’re lactose intolerant. I mean mother of God, that was the most uncomfortable experience ever! It took me about 24 hours (of discomfort) and 3 litres of water for my stomach to return to normal capacity!
Is anyone lactose intolerant? I think I might look into that a bit more. I’m not a doctor but I know when my body is not loving something!! I was reading some symptoms on the NHS website. Gladly the bloating is the only thing I experienced!
Apparently you can get whey protein that’s ‘isolated’ or Sun Warrior something and that one is not meant to have much dairy so that might be more advisable. All in all, I think I’ll just stick to a dozen eggs!
It’s good to experiment with new things but that’s one that I’ll never be trying again!
