    Could you guys recommend me any protein shake type/brands that wont give me an upset stomach or cause me to run to the bathroom after 30mins?

    I generally have a sensitive stomach that's not fond of rich food, but Im fine with dairy products though.

    I've always taken USN protein shakes, but have recently been told not to bother with them.

    I've been happy with Optimum Nutrition.

    Also, I would stay away from any ready to drink style protein shakes. Read the ingredients. It's all vegetable oil. Yuck.

    Just stick with the powders and use a shaker bottle or blender. It's also more economical.

    Raw/Vegan protein from Garden of life.

    Love it. Tastes pretty good, but really - we're trying to be healthy. If the taste is what's important to you, sit back down on the couch.

    Yeah, any 100% Isolate brand...keeps the farts down too.
    I toss a scoop in everything--recent love is red grape fruit and Greek yogurt smoothy.
    Something on the go??
    Ensure (muscle health) in moderation.

    I use Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard. I don't taste anything in my shakes, and apparently this brand doesn't have all those nasty metals some use.

    You'll probably become really gassy until your body adjusts to the protein intake.

    This stuff solved all of my stomach issues. Also made me more cut but still gaining muscle. Maybe it's just in my head but I feel like I'm gaining MORE muscle on this than any other protein shake I've used. Plus it's all organic!

    I use Isoflex.

    Whey protein isolate made a tremendous difference to me, very benefitial.
