Protien shakes make me nauseous



Recommended Posts

Every time I drink my Protein Shakes I feel like I’m going to throw up and it’s making it difficult to get my Protein in. I got my sleeve 9/17 and I’m stressing.

Anyone else have this issue?

I tried the clear protein shakes, readymade, and powder and I can’t find one that doesn’t upset my stomach. Is this normal for gastric sleeve?

Have you tried watering them down with Water or (for extra protein) Fairlife milk? That may help. I did better with Protein waters like Protein20. They're more like drinking Koolade. Keep trying, you'll find something that works for you.

I had this problem a lot in the past. I have switched over to mostly vegan Protein Shakes and don't have the problem at all anymore. I make all of my shakes with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and I also make them on the thinner side, I can't get down with drinking a thick shake everyday.

If you don't want to switch to plant based Protein shakes, drinking ones made from whey protein isolate instead of just whey protein may help since they filter out the lactose.

Hope something works for you soon!

I am 5 days out with bypass and had this same issue. I figured out that I am having issues with lactose. Switched to muscle milk (nasty but doesn't make me literally hurt!) I'm waiting for my lactaid drops to come in to use the shakes I actually like. Maybe discuss it with your physician or nutritionist to see if they can help narrow down what is happening.
