All I seem to do is poo and fart since taking them! (Milkshakes). At least double the previous rate for poop 🤪 Is this normal?

I do eat them occasionally, every few days. I mean shakes for the most part

I find the brand really matters, for me PHD is terrible farting, bloating the lot, gold standard is ok but reflex instant whey gives me hardly any problems. So i'd suggest trying a few different ones

I've never had any problems but I know some people do.  Have they got any creatine in?  I know a few people get the shits when they take that.

I wouldn't recommend going over about 150g of protein per day. Your body can only create a certain amount of protease...

I'm doing about double maintenance levels for my muscle mass, it appears to be working for mass increase but I am not much stronger.

 

I'm looking considerably leaner though 👍🏻

Whose view of maintenance levels? The medical establishment recommends far too little protein..

I see 150-200g as a hard limit, anything above is wasted unless on vitamin S...

Nope, pre-work out has but I rarely use it. Only every few weeks if I do a friend's CrossFit session. Doesn't appear to be an issue.

Maintenance for me is around 80g apparently, so 160g seems good. I'm 15.5 stone with over 12.5 of muscle. I'm currently 18% body fat, down from nearly 30 😬

Who cares about strength.  Go for hypertrophy.

Let's not go all bodybuilding forums on here :Beer:

So long as you're training hard, that's 99% of the battle won. The little details don't matter

Why bother at all then, just go to a cosmetic surgeon. 
If it’s looks then who’s it for as women don’t go for the ‘I spend my life at the gym and drinking protein shakes’ look, it’s trying too hard. The only people you’ll impress is other similar minded gym obsessed blokes.

I had C8 with coffee first thing in the morning, then creatine mixed with water during workout. Had to leave early as the mix wasn't agreeing with me and was trying to escape (at least it was from the right end).

Keep telling yourself that. I've mentioned before my mate who is a serious lifter, total beast, when we go out he has so much fanny pestering him it's embarrassing. Alas, he couldn't resist temptation and it cost him his marriage.

Doesn’t seem to be working for Andi Peters he’s turned himself into the Michelin man and still hasn’t found Miss Right.

Try peppermint oil, it's really helped my digestion settle down. I take one of these a day, two if I've been on spicy food :)

beware that until you get used to them, they do repeat on you a bit, and some people complain of heartburn. The recommendation is to take one before eating, but I normally take one without food every morning.

Off the top of my head think most the research points to even less than that, 120g is a upper limit for most people unless you're on the gear. Protein supplements are a scam unless you really can't eat proper meals for certain reasons. Eggs, yogurt, chicken, steak, nuts, fish job done.

Y'see, if this were reversed, the husband would be getting the blame.  So let's just say, did it cost him his marriage, or did his wife's complacency cost her her marriage?
