    Unhappy Whey shake makes me urinate at night!!

    Take 3 shakes a day

    Have no probs with the breakfast and pre workout.

    In the pwo shake I increase the dosage to 30g whey (rather than 20 on the others). I take it around 7pm and I wake up during the night at least 1-2 times to pee (urine is clear, no foam, etc).

    It's not a coincidence cause when I don't workout and only have 2 shakes it doesn't happen. I've searched on the web and in a forum someone said:

    "the body is trying to achieve nitrogen balance, when your taking in excess or extra protein your body breaks it down to Urea, then that is broken down to Urine and then removed from your body"

    http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/vchembo...ureacycle.html

    Does this mean I am consuming too much protein and my body is getting rid of it through urine? Shall I decrease the whey intake then?

    I'm 1.70m and 80kg around 25%bf and I'm taking around 100g protein a day average.

    By the way I have no diabetes (had test recently)

    Any help from you biology experts out there??

    Thats what i thought.

    100g of protein is by no way too much mate. The fact your weeing at night isnt because of you having a whey shake, it would be the same if you was having any other drink.

    I have no probs with solid foods, just that pwo shake in the evening, everytime I take it it happens. And taking into account I drink it at around 7pm and go to bed at around 12am, I think it's plenty of time for any drink to get out by then

    Why not have your final meal as a solid meal then and a shake couple of hours before this??

    That's not the point mate. I reckon my body doesn't absorb more that 20g whey at a time which is digested much faster than solid food, but again, pwo my body should be crying for protein, right? I'm bloody confused

    you can always add some teaspoon of oil to your shake to slow the digestion.

    Why do you reckon your body can't absorb more than 20grams at a time?!

    100g a day is nothing mate and it's nothing to do with you waking at night, I do all the time usually around 5am and I have around 350-400g ED
