You read correctly.

I've been eating chicken for 6 days per week following my gym workouts because I need the protein. But I've noticed a distinct change in the frequency and smellyness of my farts. They are now SO BAD that they burn the insides of the nostrils of anyone within a six foot radius!

Also, I get frequent stomach pains. The only food item that has changed in my diet is the chicken. But I need the protein it provides.

What should I do?

its obviously making you sick.. dont sacrifice your health for the gym. Get protein from other places.. eggs maybe, or at least vary it a bit.

Stay away from chicken, clearly. There are plenty of other sources of protein available other than chicken including eggs, cheese, beans, lentils, yogurt, nuts...

Thank you for your advice. But...

eggs = constipation
cheese = fattening :eek:
beans = which kind?
lentils = what?
yoghurt = much lower in protein than chicken
nuts = fattening :eek:

Nuts and cheese are only fattening in large quantities. Mix it up a bit. Use any kind of beans-chickpeas, kidney beans, black eye beans....

And lentils: http://www.channel4.com/entertainmen...e/lentils.html

Aim for variety!!

Its always better to get protein from food sources than supplements. As for why, I don't know. Maybe its to do with the fact that you have it so often. Give it a miss for a week or two and then reintroduce but only have it a few days a week, not everyday.

Do you eat the chicken with anything else or on its own?

In the "You Are What You Eat" book there's something about food combining and how if food is combined wrongly it causes gas because your body can't digest it properly.

Soy stuff has lots of protein. And peanut butter. Maybe you should try some fake chicken? I can hardly tell the difference.

When I know I need protein I chow down a tin of tuna. Low fat, healthy, cheap.

Are you taking any protein shakes, creatine, supplements etc? Often these can be the source of the dodgy tummy and smelly farts.

I cant do that on a regular basis though because I will get mercury poisoning, and I need regular protein.
