  • Alternate Pre & Post work out Drink/Food instead of WHEY!!


    Have been Primal for 2 years and everything is going great on my journey so far. I have almost cut out dairy.

    I still love cheeses and Yoghurt.

    A problem I encounted recently was WHEY Protein?!!!!

    Years ago I successfully used it as part of my bulking plan and it worked a treat! Now .. WOW.. I've been taking 20g before and after workouts and my digestion system has told me in no uncertain term that if I continue It's going to make me explode from the insides out!!!!

    Feelings of lethargy, bloated, hives and the most foul smelling gas and stools. At the moment I am writing this I have been constipated for 4 days.

    Google has revealed it could be Lactose intolerance !

    Can anyone give me any alternative substitutes for my pre & post workout window?

    Thanks in advance

      I'm thinking more quick digesting for pre & post work out?

        I used to think I needed to digest something quick after workouts.

        I now take enjoyment in taking my time after my workout to prepare and eat real food but aim to eat within 45-60 mins after.

        it makes the workout worth it!
