Lately, I started using a recovery shake after heavy workouts, from the brand Etixx.
8,6g whey proteine and 35,9g of carbs (maltodextrine, glucose, fructose) per 50g of powder. So that’s close to a 4:1 ratio?
I have a real difficult time digesting it, resulting in cramping, gas, bloating and now even nausea. Not really helpful. Normally I consume the shake immediately after workout, now there was almost one hour in between, and I’m almost feeling sick…
I think I’m having trouble digesting the protein, because I have this too when eating Skyr, also known to be a great source of protein.
Are there any tips for helping my body digesting this shake? What other things interfere with digesting protein?
Fiwiw, I’m a real ectomorph.
Thanks in advance!
