    Does anyone else have skin irritation from protein powder? Should I switch to plant based protein or stick to lean meats or other alternatives? Protein powder is quick and easy and nice to have on the go though.. Can anyone suggest or help with this situation.

    Thanks ;)

    If it's causing you problems, you should stop drinking it. The first rule, do no harm.

    what kind of protein are you using?
    is it all brand or all?

    Do you do ok with dairy like cottage cheese, greek yogurt or cheese?

    you dont have to use a powder but like you said, its convenient.

    Body Nutrition has a vegan type protein powder "Gardenia". You can buy samples from them pretty cheaply.

    It's actually my husband having issues. He's had issues in the past with protein so never used it but now he's a CWT client and has issues with powder, again. He's taking Harmonized Protein from Progression, suppose to be very clean. He has no issues with any other type of dairy.

    I'm having issues with nausea after drinking Trutein mixed with almond milk. Anybody else have these issues? Any suggestions?

    No, but I drink it mixed with water. Have you tried it with just water?

    Are you new to Trutein or using almond milk?

    no issues here with or without almond milk.

    I've used almond milk for a couple of years but I am new to Trutein. I really want to find a solution because oh my goodness it tastes soooo good!
