I heard you can't really process more than say 50 grams of protein in one meal, what happens to the rest?

I'm not sure there's a set in stone limit, but whatever you're body doesn't use gets converted to glucose, then either used for energy if necessary, or stored as fat.

Use the search. There was a huge discussion over this very topic.

it all depends on you body mass and how long and hard you have been training.

There really isn't an upper limit. Eat away.

if you are cutting, try to keep it below 50 g simply to limit insulin activity and maximize fat loss
