    Too much protien?

    Hi everyone
    Do you reccon you can have too much protien??

    Im just asking as im thinking of changing my diet. I have been doing my weekly shop and some calculations regarding the price of high protien foods and I have worked out that .

    Aldi Chicken Breast 27.4g/100 1kg bag x2 = ₤4.00 = 406g Protien
    Sainsburys Chick Brst 23g/100 500g bag x4 = ₤4.00 = 274g
    Aldi Tuna Chunks in spring water 23g/100 drained 130g tins x 8 = ₤5.00 = 200g

    Now the best deal to me seems the Aldi chick breats so I'm going to stop eating tuna and eat 2kg per day as its only ₤3.98 cheeper than a mcDonalds

    So

    Chick breast 406g
    Protien shake/milk x2 100g
    4 scrambled eggs & 3 whole meal toast 40g
    cottage chese 40g
    nuts 30g

    total protien 616 grams or if I ate my 2 tins of tuna per day also 676 grams

    Iv'e only listed the high protien foods I eat and not the rest so no silly comments about im not eating carbs fats ect please .

    IMO 2g protein per lb LBM is sufficient. u could actually get by on less.. i do think there is such a thing as too much protein too yes.. just like anything else. the only thing i can think of where u cant have too much of it is:

    sex, money, and fun!

    Of course, you can have overkill with any of the macros. 616g of protein per day? That's obscene. I don't even need to know your stats, they won't matter - that's WAY too much protein. 250lb + pro bodybuilders don't need 600+ grams of protein, you surely don't.
