Anyone taking Whey Protein?

I know for some people Whey Protein shakes make them breakout; but is there anyone that has acne and is taking whey shakes?

Not sure on this ... but I was taking whey, creatine, glutamine, vitamins for working out. I stopped taking everything all together about 8 months ago and while I was on accutane, I was still breaking out. So I am not sure if any of those supplements broke me out or maybe it was still in my system. Not sure.

I work out with weights about 3x a week. After I lift I drink a shake with about 1 scoop. I really dont think that this really affects me. Of course if I drank it every day would I stress my body a little.. I think so, and stress doesnt exactly help acne...

Well, I took 2 shakes yesterday and it looks like I brokeout maybe a little. Not like the old days where i would get plenty. It is so minor I'd rather keep taking the shake. Also i am seening good gains.

What brand are you taking? I take Isopure (Dutch Chocolate) and that didnt break me out and it was very good.

Re: Anyone taking Whey Protein?

I break out when taking whey protein based on the amount I have. 1 scoop a day is not a problem. However, when I take 2-3 scoops/day, I do notice more acne.

Re: Anyone taking Whey Protein?

Breakouts have been known to happen with both whey and soy. Only way you can know for sure, is to try it, and if it breaks you out, now you know.

I find that my body is more important, than letting acne control me. I control me, not my face or acne...The acne will go away, and when it does, ill be cut and buff...ready to face the world with the knowledge ive gained from having acne, and the build to match.
