    too much protein?

    I was just wondering if you take in too much protein, will your body turn it into fat?
    I have always been lucky and never had to pay attention too closely to what i ate. as an athlete i could eliminate body fat at will.
    I figured some of you nutrition experts good give me a hand.
    thanks

    It's overall how many calories you can take in that versus how many your burn that determines if you put weight on or not. It also a rather open-ended question seeing as how everyone's genetic make up is different and we all utilize amounts of protein differently.

    too much protein in recent studies has shown to possibly cause problems such as osterperosis. too much protein also puts alot of stress on the kidneys. protein intakes above 20% are not recommended based on current research, even for weight lifters. The norm amongst lifters is 1g - 1.5 per LB

    See I disagree for 2 reasons; the first being that it has worked for the past 50 years of bodybuilders taking in that ratio of protein with very little occurances of problems and secondly, the media makes these articles to stir up attention in the world. We thrive off negavtigve publicity. May I lean you towards the egg debate. For several years, researchers switched back and forth marveling over the greatness of eggs, then it was how horrid they were for your cholesterol. It's just publicity. But in the end, you've got to do what works for you.

    i completely agree, science doesnt ever know what they are talking about! one day something is good for you and the other its not. BUT that is the current most recent research and if that is the case i think people should be aware of that and not what people think to be true. The studies merely say that too much can cause stress on kidneys and can lead to other problems.

    i'm not really sure.. just wanted to state the Current Research.

    It's all good bro. I'm sorry if I came across as being an A-Hole. I didn't mean to be. But with research, I never believe it until I see it happen right before me, just because of all the dirty deeds companys do.
