    Too Much Protein?

    Hi all. I'm trying to get about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight for mass. For me, this would equal about 127 grams of protein per day. Now I have a question. What if I take in too much protein? One guy I work out with said I'll just "crap it back out" if it's too much, but another says I'll get sick. Which is right? I really don't want to overload it just to find out but if any veterans here can help I'd appreciate it.

    Nothing bad will happen (assuming you have 2 functional kidneys). Enjoy the protein.

    You'll crap it out. The worst that can happen is that you'll have a hard time releaving your bowels. But even for that, you'd have to be eating a shitload in the first place, with very little of anything else.

    What you're taking in is fine.

    Yeah, just keep yourself hydrated. The amount you plan to take isn't very much, so if you happen to go over, it won't really matter.

    It'll get broken down into glucose and/or stored as fat.

    No it won't. You'll piss it out, if you have 2 good kidneys. Your body only needs a certain amount of protein in certain times. The rest of the time it's like alchohol, minus side effects. Your body pisses out protein, and gets rid of muscle more often than anything else. It's active tissue, so the body considers it wasteful unless it's directly being used on a consistent basis. Protein does little to the rest of your body, it only effects the muscles. Your body has little use for it. On top of that, protein is harder to digest that carbohydrates or fat. So you piss out excess protein. Enjoy as much as you like, but make sure you get enough fiber, unless you like frequent bathroom visits.

    Yeah, didn't you hear? The body had a vote and it turned out it would rather THROW AWAY those 4 Calories per gram than to use them.
