Hi bit of my history. I am celiac, I thought I was getting better but lately been incredibly sick. I have not been toilet for six days and today vomited and my whole body aches. I have just found out I have an allergy to eggs which was a major source of protein for me. I eat fish but not meat don't enjoy the taste, can't stomach it and don't feel good on it. The only thing I can handle at the moment is a shake which I put pumpkin, avocado, cinnamon and protein powder. I know people are going to say I should be eating real food but when I do I feel really sick. What I want to know is until I get my gut well what other source of protein can I use to put in my shakes? I am not enjoying food as it makes me sick. Love any suggestions for protein shakes please. Thank you.

just eat fresh plain meat, fat, water. no more allergies. zero carb diet will resolve your problems. no need for protein shakes.

For what it's worth, I thought I had an egg intolerance and turned out to be mistaken.

Here's what happened for me:

  • Knew I was somewhat lactose-intolerant

  • Consumed a large amount of lactose inadvertently

  • Got nausea, diarrhea

  • Stopped consuming all lactose, yet the nausea and diarrhea continued for 2 weeks.

  • Stopped consuming eggs and the nausea and diarrhea went away.

At that point I concluded that I had somehow developed an egg intolerance. However, I just went back to eggs (gradually) and have had no nausea or diarrhea from them. I believe the lactose jacked up my system, and the eggs acted as some kind of catalyst for further pain and indigestion. Just saying.. you may not actually be egg intolerant. I spent about 2 months with no eggs and that worked fine for me. So I don't know how you determined you have an egg allergy, but I'd be careful about that..

I've had many times in the past few years where the thought of eating any food disgusts me. just swallowing has been difficult for me and gagging/throwing up every day is the norm after consuming anything. at these times, the only thing that helps is eating ANYTHING that appeals to me. I know it's not the answer you are looking for, but you need calories just to function on a daily basis.

trying to follow a certain diet when you are very ill is not a good idea to me. after my ulcerative colitis diagnosis, I had been following a raw fruitarian 80/10/10 diet and tried to force myself to eat fruit. I would constantly throw it up and just thinking of sweet foods made me sick. I ended up losing over 40 lbs during that time because I was eating only 300-400 calories a day- some days less than that.

if you need to drink 3 or 4 of those shakes a day until you feel better, then do that. you could try broth- chicken or beef- which might be calming for your belly. the only thing I warn is that since you do have an egg allergy, you could also be sensitive to chicken. I found that out at my last doctor's appointment since the eggs are coming from chickens.

also, try adding coconut oil/butter to your shakes to add more calories.

There are meat-based protein powders/liquids. They're a bit more expensive, but if your aversion to meat isn't ethical then they'd probably be your best bet.

If your aversion is ethical as well, I have seen some sweet potato PWO powders around that might be a good workaround, but they may contain egg whites.
