I don't want to ThreadJack anyone else's threads, so I'm just guna ask.

Is it bad to have too much protein? Searched around to stuff that just said what is adequate and whatnot, but nothing about if you take too much.

I'm 143lbs and for the past few days I've been taking in between 220~300g of protein a day. Is this bad?

Regards,

Justin Ryan

No danger in excess protein.

Probably nothing wrong with it. As usual make sure you're drinking lots of water so that if there is actually any excess it's flushed out easily. It might be overkill though if you're trying really hard to hit that much. 1-1.5g per pound of lean body mass is generally what people around here recommend.

Stick in the low 200's for now, you're too small to use that much protein. It's good you're eating though, up your fats/carbs if you really wanna start gaining weight.

It's only bad because you're kind of wasting money. Unless you got the food for free, then you're wasting someone elses money.

Bad for your kidneys if you don't drink adequate amounts of water?

Lies. Bad for you (dehydration) if you don't drink adequate amounts of water.
