So I started to workout again in order to feel better and not feel as tired as I was before. When I was really dedicated to the gym I went from a skinny 150lbs to a very lean and muscular 175lbs by hitting the gym and taking protein supplements. I use to drink Isopure because it doesn't have any carbs and I could drink it at night. My question is, has anyone continued to drink isopure or muscle milk after being diagnosed with CD? Is there a specific type of protein I should avoid?

I quite often supplement my workouts with whey protein, I don't seem to have any adverse effects from it. I heard that soy and soya protein aren't good for Crohn's though as people without stomach complaints often get stomach side-effects from them.

I tried a whey protein shake myself... but my stomach tends to get upset whenever I drink it... So, I'm guessing you're going to have to find this out for yourself... Trial and error...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
