Dear Fuming
It is possible that your high protein intake is causing the smelly flatus. Proteins like eggs contain sulphur which can cause a smell like rotten eggs of sulphur dioxide. Without knowing what your protein supplements contain, tt is difficult to judge which one is giving you this wind. In general, raw onions, garlic, and the rest of the onion family and most legumes (dry cooked or canned dry beans, peas, and soya) can also cause smells. You can use a food diary and record all the foods you eat and then leave out one at a time to see if this condition improves.
Best regards

I already do both of what you recomend, bowel movement is most definetly not a problem, it' s the " toxic"  gas that causes a problem.

Try drinking milk every night or eating high fibre to make you clean your stomach everyday.
