    I had this issue when I was on the protein powders, it was totally, utterly obnoxious, never known such a stench.
    It really seemed to come into it's own when I was jogging on the treadmill or on the elliptical. Smell of rotten eggs, basically. I was also having a lot of fish, cottage cheese and eggs at that time, and the issue has not been there since I cut the protein powder and some of the fish I was having. I don't think loads of protein is necessarily a good thing if the body cannot deal with processing it all.

    Are the protein powders from whey? Un-predigested milk proteins (ie not from hard cheeses or yogourts) do it to me every time. I don't have a problem with other sources of protein such as beans, eggs, etc.

    LOL...have to respond to this!!

    Yesterday evening I did my usual 65 minutes of cardio on an elliptical then took a break to drink my usual whey protein shake. My intention was to go back and get another 30 minutes or so. I mounted the machine for the next round; however, after drinking my healthy mix the ole butt trumpet started blasting notes! If the wellness center would have been full of guys, I would not have cared. But with it being full of girls I decided to get off and go shower instead.

    I am laughing so hard I have tears! I see butt trumpet blasting notes as a new phrase for me. Mine happen when I am cycling. So when I am tired and heading uphill I get a blast and its like rocket thrust! .

    If you eat a lot of protein, odds are you know what I'm talking about. That disgusting, foul smell that can clear out a five mile radius caused by a high protein diet. At first I thought it was the dairy (whey protein) but then I went vegan and switched to a vegan protein powder, yet the problem persists.

    Does anyone know how to reduce the potency of this legendary gas?

    Hasn't happened to me.

    When you make a smoothie, you're incorporating a lot of air when you blend it. Air you swallow is going to come out one end or the other!:laugh:

    Hazard of a high protein diet. My boyfriend is like, OMG STOP! But then I tell him that's how I show my affection and not to resist my methane cuddles. Then I give him a romantic dutch oven and slap him on the *kitten*.

    Same same- I keep us warm at night with my methane cuddles. Cheaper than PSE and G.
