hi guys,
i have couple questions about nutrition that i have problem understanding
1. daily consumption of protein is # of grams equal to ur body weight in lbs?
ie. if i'm 185lb then i should consume 185grams of protein?
if so, is this taking too much protein? meaning that does this harm your body. I heard too much protein will overstress ur kidney and thus creates problem now or later in life, this is true?

2. when should i take the diet supplements? i want to do morning runs and i heard that running in the morning b4 intake of food increases fat burning to 300%. Compare that to have a bkfast with diet supplements..and then go for my run. Which one is the better alternative?

thanks guys.

1. no it's not bad for your kidneys

2. running on an empty stomach will cause you to lose some muscle

as for it being better for fat burning, weight loss comes down to cals in VS cals out

running burns cals during and after

if you can eat and then do a more intense run it will burn more cals and result in more weight loss
