    Could be the volume that you are putting away at that time (if you have a small stomach).
     
    Or you could be lactose intolarant.
     
    First reduce volume going down at one time..
     
    Then look towards a isolate version of whey.

    Is it causing a rise in your surrounding air temperature? (Sorry, was trying not to be rude! )

    What protein shake are you talking about - is it just protein or are there carbs in too? Also what is the serving size?

    thanks all, its phd pharma whey, almost 2g carbs per 25g serv. i take it with water, 1 scoop usually sometimes 2 after weights. ive just finished the tub today and have mp isolate and mp impact whey now to use so will keep an eye to see if the isolate doesnt cause bloat. also i allways drink the shake in one go
     
    bulkwhey lol! nope
    thanks again

    You should be fine with the isolate. I've heard some sweetners can also cause bloating. Only have unflavoured isolate myself so don't really know for sure.

    I got bloated after using this product as well, I put it down to the thickening agents in the product in my case.
     
    If you're not lactose intolerant try any whey with no thickeners in the ingredients like xanthan gum, guar gum, carboxy methyl cellulose and you should be fine.

    Both these products don't contain any thickeners, try the Impact whey (concentrate) first so you can rule out any possible lactose issues if you get on fine with that.

    I'd agree with that

    just noticed, im using up a bag of phd diet whey and it has guar gum and xanthan gum. i'll try replacing this with a double scoop of impact whey for a few days and see if there is any difference
    thanks again
