    How about; Classic Whey - Double Rich Chocolate. For me, most whey products also upset my stomach and in high quantaties so does this one BUT it seems to do it the least.
    I think it was also a matter of finding a flavor that did not make you nauseated. This flavor + skim milk seems to be OK for me. I only use between 3-4 scoops / day - all at once. If you find a decent product but it still bothers your stomach, maybe you might need to take smaller increments.

    I"ve given up on protien powders/bars. The agony of bloat is just not worth it.

    Turkey/chicken and fish are my better options now.

    Some protein powders, like, say, ISO-Pure, mentioned above, have loads of sodium. Other powders, like, say, Nectar, have very low sodium.

    Whenever bloat is a concern, you'll want to drink plenty of water, ingest low sodium stuff, and stay away from creatine.

    Throw in some coffee, or green tea, and that well have you stay a bit drier, too.

    That's exactly what I had yesterday...cottage cheese(Low Sodium) mixed with yogurt(low fat), 3 handfuls of raw almonds, 4 egg whites mixed with lentils(YUM), 1 banana, and 1 cucumber.
    I think I might be EGG-Intolerant...I was bloated after eating the egg whites. Or was it the lentils??
