Pea & Rice Protein
« on: December 12, 2017, 10:41:11 pm »

I'm off all cows milk at the moment mainly due to skin issues that it causes which includes any form of whey. I do get sinus issues a bit more when I have a lot of dairy too but it's more the milk that's the issue. Anyway, just got an order of Pea and Rice protein from Bulk Nutrients called Earth Protein. It's chocolate flavour and aside from tasting like the earth itself it seems to be doing the goods. I've had egg white protein before which was super eggy, have looked at beef protein and some other non whey options but this is my first time trying it out.

Anyone else gone away from whey?

Yeah idk. It seems to be pretty much any dairy based protein which would include wpi. I haven't had straight up wpi for a while but do know that when I did the first week of that whole 30 diet my skin cleared up and I felt amazing. I was only taking egg white protein then.

yup I have as well (cut out all dairy), for the last 2 months or so.

my 5k PR came the week I ditched all dairy, seemed like I got a nice boost in how good I felt shortly after ditching it (or just coincidence).

i've substituted almond milk, makes my stomach/body feel pretty amazing.. really agrees with me it seems. It's not a real substitute from a protein pov though, just from something milky to drink pov. Settles my stomach nicely. For protein, just eating more chicken now.

interesting though about dairy and your skin issues.. just doesn't seem worth ingesting something that is causing "adverse reactions", seems like you made the right move.

Exactly. I've gone off dairy a few times before and have had a great time off it, feel like a million dollars but find it soooo hard to stay off. I love cheese and greek yoghurt too which sucks. Having said that I have some King Island Blue Stilton cheese lined up for today.

Agreed on Almond milk. I have no interest in the nutritional benefits or lack thereof but it tastes ok and mixes well in protein shakes.

Yeah I am 100% away from whey right now with just brown rice and pea protein.

It is the organic brand and i dunno what to think of it. My calorie has been high anyway so i don't see any kind of a difference from recovery. Might change when i cut though.

Might want to eat something with the protein shake cause it digests too fast i think and might not get absorbed properly.....

After using it for a week I would caution anyone to dive headfirst into this type of protein. 1 serve a day works ok but more than that may cause digestive issues. I've never had protein farts...till now. Not good at all. I'm almost prepared to take the negative consequences of whey over this and am now running both while I acclimatize. Might go with just the pea protein next time as I know brown rice doesn't sit well with me anyway so not sure if that's the culprit. Also, it mixes like mud so that's not idea either.
