4 Ways To Avoid The Post-Protein-Shake Bloat
Protein shakes can be a good on-the-go meal or a reliable protein supplement that helps build lean muscle tissue. This is the most popular among bodybuilder but also consumed by people who want to maintain general fitness. Some people find that protein shakes leave them feeling bloated.
In This Blog , we will work and try to explain how to avoid this common side effect for some people .
- Go “sugar alcohol” free. Sugar alcohols are neither sugars nor alcohols. They are carbohydrates that the body does not completely absorb and metabolize, and for some people this can cause gas, bloating—even diarrhea.Your best bet is to skip protein shakes that contain ingredients such as: sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, maltitol syrup, lactitol, erythritol, isomalt and hydrogenated starch hydrolysates.
2.Adjust to fiber shakes. If you normally don’t get much fiber in your diet, drinking high-fiber protein shakes can initially cause some gas and bloating. That doesn’t mean you should avoid shakes containing fiber since fiber offers all kinds of health benefits and most of us need to get more in our diet. Instead, have a quarter serving of shake on the first day, have a half-serving the next day or so and gradually increase to a full shake serving in 5 to 7 days. By letting your body adjust the added fiber should not cause you any discomfort.
3. Not so frothy. The longer you blend your shake the more air you whip into it and the more air you’ll swallow. Make your shake super-smooth and you won’t walk around afterwards feeling bloated
4.Slow down. Quickly gulping down your shake can leave you uncomfortably gassy and bloated. The solution: Sip more slowly and you won’t swallow as much excess air.
