Protein powders are not a good idea for anyone that has any degree of fungal candida/bad bacteria. Protein powders can create too much ammonia too fast. My ammonia levels went through the roof when I was doing them. Better off eating some lean chicken, fish, or turkey. Lean meats are more slowly digested so the concentration of ammonia doesn’t come as fast. Again, it just depends on the how your body reacts/level of candida. Its not a good idea to rely on protein powders as a meal on a regular basis. You receive more variety of nutrients when you vary your protein sources.
