Reaction to Tropical Shakeology
I have a customer currently drinking Tropical Shakeology daily. A month ago his wife decided she also wanted to start her weight loss journey. The first time she drank Tropical Shakeology she developed a stomach act about a half hour after drinking it. The second time she drank it she ended up in the ER with severe stomach pain immediately after drinking it. I suspect she has a food intolerance to one of the ingredients. I asked what she was mixing it with, soy milk, and has never had a reaction to soy milk. Can someone shed some light on possible side affects to Tropical. I drink Tropical & Vegan Chocolate because of a whey protein intolerance. I also have a gluten intolerance. I thought possibly it was gluten issue for her since they are to be gluten free but manufactured in a plant that processes gluten. If she is sensitive to gluten it may be possible that she is extremely sensitive. Anyone?

As far as being alergic to an ingredient, that definately sounds like the case. I'd leave it up to her doctor to figure that out, but I'd make sure she stopped trying all the different flavors for now.

Sounds like Lactose Intolerance - does Shakeology have lactose?

She was drinking Tropical Vegan with soy milk added. So, no lactose that I'm aware of. I questioned what she added to the Tropical, thinking the same thing.

How is her diet aside from the new introduction?How is her water intake daily? Has she had any other adverse reactions to other foods? While soy is a great dairy alternative, it is "possible" this was the key issue. When clients have issues with food( whether it's immediate or chronic) we have to look at the diet as a whole. Sometimes it is food combinations, not just one thing. ~Beth

I did question if she had used soy before, she said yes. I suggested she get some food intolerance panels done. Thank you!
