Everytime I drink a powdered shake I get a headache. I've tried GNC and another one that I can't think of the name right now. (my doctor recommended it and you buy it at Walmart)

I get migraines when I eat aspartame, splenda, nutra sweet etc. Any fake sugar product really messes with me. Sometimes I even get diarrea. After surgery I just forced myself to drink the Protein. But yes I feel the effects of the fake sugar. Good luck! chrissie

i definitely feel the wrath of all of the artificial stuff they put in Protein drinks - i'm fairly headache-prone and any foods with lots of preservatives/sweeteners/msg/etc. almost always do me in. maybe you could try the GNC pure whey protein? the only ingredient is whey protein and it's supposedly unflavored so you can put it into anything you want (smoothies, juice, Soup, etc.)
