    Re: To Whey or not to Whey?

    So glad for you. Having constipation is the worst. A WLS friend just went to the hospital because of it. Had to say something in case you didn't know that it could be a problem. All the best!

    Re: To Whey or not to Whey?

    Something not mentioned - constipation from too much protein consumed at one time without sufficient fiber! I had this problem during the protein shake and soft food/protein shake days. Beware!
