Hey guys, im a 16 year old student with a problem. Recently i got into weight lifting and i do take protein powder (specifically ON's 100% Whey).

I dont know wether or not my gas cramps (they hurt), and diarrhea are because of the protein but i am experiencing it DURING SCHOOL!

This is what i have for breakfast:

3/4 cup of oatmeal
a banana
milk
yogurt cup
multivitamin


So yeah it is pretty healthy. I just really want these gas cramps to stop! its ruining my school days as i am constantly hoping for the end of class instead of listening to the teacher.

If you guys want a similar situation of what im experiencing please refer to this video:

I DO get a bubbly feeling in my stomach, followed by some gas pains.

I am often afraid to pass gas because it is foul smelling and quite loud.

After having gone to the washroom, what is found in the toilet is sort of a light brown/yellow'ish liquid.

Thank you and please reply!

Try soy protein instead of whey and try something instead of cow's milk to mix it with....perhaps a lactose free mild or goat's milk or juice or water. That's probably the source of your gas.
