  • Primal Fuel??

    Does anyone else have stomach porblems after consuming Primal Fuel? I have been noticing lately after having 2 scoops of primal fuel in a smoothie with rasberries, blue berries, strawberries, a banana and whipping cream that I get a very bloated uncomfortable feeling for about an hour. I made a smoothie without the primal fuel and did not get this feeling.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    It is pretty heavy on the coconut. Could you possibly be having a reaction to that or are you usually OK with it?

      I haven't tried primal fuel, but I get that same effect from several other protein shakes I tried a few years ago.
      Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

        Hi
        To be honest, speaking strictly as a Chef, it's probably the creamy fruity addition to the mix that's giving you the bloating. The banana and whipping cream are pretty heavy in respect of specific gravity of liquids, and the added acidity of the berry fruits could be reacting with the alkaline cream, causing a bit of a pH imbalance in your stomach. I would suggest the primal fuel on its own, and a fruit smoothie separate, see how that affects you.

          I just don't understand why someone would pay $80 for it. That's a crap ton of money for some powder. I wish he had some sample sizes so I could possibly fathom why it would be worth so much.

            Yeah, 80 bucks is a lot, but I buy it to have on hand when I would like a quick meal replacement or to have as part of recovery drink. It mixes great with water or full fat milk/coconut milk and tastes damn good in my opinion. I really look forward to it at times.

            I figure if you do the math, it's cheaper per serving than a lot of the food/drinks people buy each day. Example number 1: Starbucks.

              if I take it first thing in the morning, it wrecks my stomach. pre work out though and I seem to do fine. A coworker that is also primal did remark that it gave he and his wife trouble sometimes.

                It is some tasty stuff (I've only had it at Primalcon) but I agree that that is too pricy for what it is, basically whey and coconut. I also put on four pounds over Priamlcon weekend slurping that stuff down.

                  I find that most types of whey upset my stomach, especially whey isolates. I'm not quite sure why. I've had protein bars/drinks made with whey protein concentrate and it seems to go over better. Still, though, I actually respond best to plant-based protein powders, especially sprouted brown rice protein. I can eat meat and eggs with no issue, but when it comes to protein supplements, plant-based works best for me.

                  This may or may not be of help to you!

                    Good point, tarek. The whey could be the Op's issue also.

                      MPM: Most protein shakes give me gastric problems. I'm allergic to the whey protein. It didn't happen immediately but after a while (a shake a-day, not continually but maybe for 2 weeks, a 2 week break, and then another week or 2), Then I had diarrheamost days. It took a while to work out the connection. I stopped the shakes and quickly recovered.
                      Many recipes for sweet things (pancakes, cakes, cookies) use whey protein and they do the same thing. I've never lost the problem. My immune system remembers!
