  • Nauseous from protein shakes and/or coconut milk

    I've seen this addressed before. Is it possible that this is from the air incorporated into the shakes?

    I think so. My shakes have that bubbly, whipped appearance. I belch a lot after ingestion and get really nauseous after having one.

    Yeah that is the same with me. I'm now trying it with coconut flakes and water instead of coconut milk and it isn't as thick.

      I'll have to try that. Also, I think I just jumped in and was using entirely too much coconut milk at one time. My system isn't used to it.

        Same problems here...let them sit for a minute or two before drinking...a lot of the air bubbles dissipate.

          I don't know what the cause is/was, but when I started with morning smoothies - whey protein, fruit, greens - they were really slow to digest at first. The slowest was one with coconut as well - a few sips sat like concrete in my stomach for hours and hours. Ugh.

          Fast forward a month or so - no problems any more. I even added creamed coconut this morning; still no problems. Maybe start slow/ small and with water rather than coconut anything?

          I do drink them slowly, and chew any bits of green that aren't quite blended, so I probably don't swallow as much air as if I gulped the whole thing down at once.

            It takes time for some people to tolerate coconut oil or milk. It's a different type of saturated fat, medium-chain fatty acid, that our bodies metabolize in a totally different way. Just go slow with it.
