I'm new to H, and have been freaking out as happens during a new DX. Today I took charge. I changed my diet to reduce arginine as much as I can as well as stocking up on lysine rich foods. I already ate clean and GF so it was not a huge change. (I will miss peanut butter, I loooooooooooove it) The only thing is, I'm a body builder....I can't stop taking protein supplements. I have gotten L-lysine tablets to counter balance it. Does anyone know of any shakes or bars that are low in arginine? 


On a side note: I have tried not taking supplements before, I don't makes gains. I'm a women, I need help gaining with shakes or protein bars.

i have no idea if it triggers anything for me. I'm in my first outbreak. I've only had H for a week and half lol

I'm just taking preventive measures early and making them a life style change

Oh gotcha. 

Yeah, protein supplements usually have very high concentrations of arginine because it's an essential Amino.

I had just changed to a natural peanut butter that was sooooo good. I went through 2 tubs a month. I was a peanut butter monster. It was high in protein too. I need to revamp my protein sources since nuts and peanut butter aren't acceptable fillers anymore
