Whey Protein: With the right dose and use, whey protein is generally safe. Well-balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is also a good regime. Whey protein in high doses can cause some side effects such as increased bowel movements, nausea, thirst, bloating, cramps, reduced appetite, tiredness (fatigue), and headache.
