Diarrhea from Shakeology?
1/25/12 7:22 AM
I've been using Shakeology for about a week and a half (first the 7 day sample package and then I bought the 30 day package. The first week, I had no issues. But the last two days I've been having diarrhea that I think is from the Shakeology (my stomach starts to feel funny about 30 minutes after drinking it).

Anyone know why this is? How come it didn't happen the first week but it's happening now? Changes I've made to my diet recently are eating the Activit multivitamin, oatmeal and a banana for breakfast (I used to not eat breakfast) and a lot of fruit + Shakeology to replace my normal lunch which was usually random thing I bought from a restaurant. Is it possible that my diarrhea is being caused by a combination of the multivitamin and Shakeology?

Is this normal to not have any reaction at first and then start having diarrhea from Shakeology?

This may not be right--but it could be the Shakeology cleaning out all of the toxins out of your system. The process of ridding food from your body can take anywhere from 24 hours to several days. Your body may have been getting used to the Shakeology during the first week and now the Shakeology is kicking in and flushing out all the bad stuff from your system. I would keep up with it another week or so and see if you are having the same effects with it.

DrunkPanda-

It could very well be an excess of some nutrient, maybe the magnesium. I'd stop the vitamin and cut Shakeology down to half a serving. If that works, go up to 3/4 serving, then a full serving, then add the vitamin back. I'd wait 3-4 days between each jump.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Yesterday I cut out the multivitamin and cut the Shakeology to a half serving and I felt a lot better. I'm pretty sure the culprit was mixing the multivitamin with the Shakeology since the first week I was fine drinking it and that was when I was not taking the multivitamin at the same time.

I'm thinking about just not taking a multivitamin at all, I feel like between the Shakeology and all of the fruit I eat (banana, apple, orange, strawberries), there really isn't much point in taking a multivitamin. Do you guys agree or would you recommend I still take the multivitamin? One of the main reasons I started taking multivitamins in the first place is because I hate vegetables and I wanted to avoid eating them while staying healthy but it sounds like Shakeology has most of the vegetable portion of the diet covered.

You said that you were eating a lot of fruit. That's possibly it. Bananas have a lot of potassium and fiber and that causes diarrhea. Just a suggestion.

I know that too much vitamin c can give you diarrhea but I don't think that cutting out fruit is the best option. I don't think you really need a multivitamin with all of the nutrients you're getting. I started shakeology recently and have noticed an increase in gas but I'm sure it just takes a while to adjust so I'm going to stick with it. Good luck!

I've had it from day 1 with the Shakeology. I'm going to take the other guy's advice and cut it down to half and then slowly go back up to a full scoop. Doesn't matter what I put in there or eat the rest of the day, I spend most of my time on the toity. emoticon

I have been drinking the Shake-O for 4 weeks now and it does not agree with me! I love it and don't want to stop drinking it. I am also going to cut the serving in half and see if that helps. Last week it was on the 'toity' so much that I had to leave work early. So embarrasing - we only have one ladies room for 6 of us to share.

I know this convoy was over a year ago, but I've had the same issue. I drank chocolate shakeology for about 3 weeks and then my stomach started to not like it. My stomach hurt so bad from the time a drank it for breakfast til 3 in the afternoon. So I stopped, cuz I have 3 kiddos at home and I'm not much good if I can hardly move off the couch. Talked to my coach and she said same thing, it could me cleaning all the toxins and junk from my stomach. I don't have any food allergies, I tried the vegan and it did the same thing. So now, I have been drinking just 1/4 serving this week. Its giving me gas and the runs (sorry if tmi, just being honest here). I'm going to continue that for a week at least, see if the diarrhea stops before I move to a 1/2 serving. But I plan on gradually increase the serving before going to a full one. Hoping that works. Being a coach and hearing how many people love Shakeology and the success stories on it, I really hate that I have these issues and don't feel like I can share much about it. :-(

I tried the choc kind and was eating well and it gives me the runs too much! I don't use it can't be on the toilet all day! I've tried other protein shakes with whey, without whey, without soy, with Pea protein always the same result I think its just too much vitamins and fiber in one shot my body doesn't like it so sticking to juices fruits veggies that I juice myself and eating lean protein and just working out!

Ang,
Can you update us on this. Did you end up getting used to it. I am having the exact same issue with one of my coachs at this time. A quick reply or PM would be great.

Thanks.
Chad

I'm having the same issue after drinking it for 2 weeks the 3rd week I started being sick 30 minutes to an hour after drinking it and not feeling well for the rest of the day. I'm waiting for the vegan chocolate to arrive so I can try it to see if it will agree with my stomach.

Kinda glad to see that others have had problems. I know this is an old post. I have been having bad gas lately and I haven't even done this even a week. I have the packets at the moment. Should I try just half a packet? There really isn't a lot in the packets to start with. I hope it clears up soon.
