    You can suppliment protien all year long. If you take in more than what you need, then your body just gets rid of it.

    As long as you're working out you need extra protein -at least 1gm/lb of bodyweight (sorry I don't know that in kg). That's an absolute minimum in my opinion.

    I think most people will tell you you need to make sure you keep up your water intake and avoid dehydration when eating high protein. Also, if you are getting too much protein your body will most likely let you (and everyone else) know. Undigested protein tends to rot in the gut, causing sulfurous farts that can kill a man at twenty paces.

    Never stop consuming protien, but you can certainly "Protein Shift". On days off, you don't need as much as you would need on training days. Protein Shifting isn't a bad idea since it gives your body a rest. And yes, there is such a thing as TOO much protein.

    Xkg x 2.2 = Exactly 1g Protein Per LB

    Xkg x 3.3 = Exactly 1.5g Protein per LB

    Ronny I made a thread similar to this and Swolecat thought protein was more important on OFF days: http://anabolicreview.com/vbulletin/...ad.php?t=78060

    Theoretically it would make sense since it gives adequate protein to repair while resting, but practically it doesn't. I'll post up some interesting studies. Gimme a few minutes to find them again.

    I can't find the article on the net, but there was a big write-up in Muscular Development awhile back on Protein shifting with some very interesting statistics. But I'll continue to support my theory, I just gotta eat first!
