If you try to do a bowel rest diet using only whey protein (no carbohydrate component) you will quickly surpass your maximum daily protein limit whilst still feeling really hungry and tired. But more importantly, you will likely not gain any weight, so will remain very thin and weak, with low energy and lots of fatigue.

The principal carbohydrate in Absorb Plus is maltodextrin (derived from Non-GMO Tapioca – cassava root). Maltodextrin has a slower uptake to the bloodstream, thereby helping to avoid the ‘sugar high’ and resultant crash you can get from many liquid shake products.
