As far as amino acid supplements, it does sound like it should be effective. Since the body doesn't really use whole proteins as they're ingested, but the digestive system breaks them down into the basic amino acids before absorption. However, the sources of the amino acids in a given supplement might present a problem, depending on what you're sensitive to.

I found the hemp protein to be inedible...Maybe see if you can get a sample?
I just looked up some of those different protein powders and I think I am going to try the hemp next. Thanks for the info!! I guess it couldn't hurt to take an amino acid supp too. I will also try to eat more meat.

Buy boxed chicken breast that you can take out individually. Buy quinoa - it's gluten free.
IMHO, natural source (ie. real food) is always better than some processed supplement. You don't need a lot of protein but you do need a bit throughout the day - I try to eat a bit at every snack/meal.
Peanut butter, almond butter.......yum.....
