Palpitations from protein drink?



Recommended Posts

I actually am embracing the Protein drinks...I have found that I can switch up the flavors by adding either Peanut Butter powder, or a drop in Water flavor packet and that has really broadened the horizons.

I'm doing this now pre-surgery twice a day at least three times a week.

I've noticed that about 10 minutes after I finish my shake my heart feels fluttery for about a minute then it goes back to normal.

Anyone else experience this?

Nope. Unless you are just excited about drinking them? There's nothing in them that would produce that effect. Carb shock, as in abruptly stopping eating carbs, may produce them though.

Are you staying hydrated? Sometimes dehydration (even a just a little) that causes palpitations and it could just be a coincidence that your heart races after drinking a Protein Shake.< /p>

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
