Quality over quantity
When I was younger, I only bought protein on price. The absolute cheapest I could get: bulk whey concentrate. My body tolerated it less and less over time, or rather I just became more sensitive to how crappy it was. Especially when I decided to grow bigger, I needed more protein. I got tired of the mild stomach upset, gas, and occasional loose stools from crap quality whey.
The next thing I did was buy mixtures, such as rice, pea, and whey mixtures. I didn't want my body to become intolerant to high amounts of protein powder from one source. Then the price of rice and pea protein shot up to the point they weren't even really economical anymore for their quality.
Finally, I moved onto hydrolyzed whey isolates and decided to use a quality over quantity strategy with protein powder. So I found Vitamuscle's protein product Hydropump (I eventually partnered with Vitamuscle because I love their products, and now they make the Acrobolix line of supplements). I began using Hydropump whey as my sole powdered protein source. It costs more but I get to use less. My body seems to really like it as it sets and satiates wonderfully, so instead of 2 scoops per shake I usually only use 1 scoop now. And my body hasn't become intolerant to it (because it's an isolate protein).
Remember, a calorie isn't a calorie! And it's not how much you intake, it's how much your body assimilates that matters. Stop consuming high amounts of crap protein powder and start consuming lower amounts of quality protein powder. You'll love the switch. This stuff is great. See my breakfast recipe below.
