Much of it would be turned to glucose or fat, so "no".

there is a such thing as eating too much protein, and it can be converted to fat. This is what iv'e read.

Does anybody know at what rate protein converts to glucose and then fat? Is it pretty much the same as carbs. what about if you're low-carbing?

Thanks for any input!

i doubt much of it or any would be turned to fat, i do big protien meals like that all the time and dont see a difference just subtract some protien later in the day

Total caloric intake will be the basis of whether or not it will be converted to fat.

thx for the replies :)

well if you're eating more protein in a day than your body can use and support than of course it's going to turn to fat right?? I mean eating too much of anything isn't good, why would protein be any different.. I think too little would be better than too much.

It will be turned to Glucose. If this glucose can not be strored as Glycogen it will get stored as fat.

how much Glycogen can the body store?

Depends on your weight !!!

OK. But what if you're following, say, NHE or any low card diets. With work and school, I find myself very busy and sometimes I would eat extra amounts of protein during b-fast and lunch. Would it be converted and stored as fat then or at the end of the day when you sleep? Thanks!!!

NHE rules: 50g protein is the per meal limit for absorption and fat loss reasons. Greater than 50g wont be absorbed and it causes an insulin spike and amid high insulin everything you eat is more prone to convert to bodyfat. There is also a limit to how much protein you can absorb in one day. The NHE rule is 1g per pound of bodyweight.

Anybody know the limit for the bodybuilding side of NHE?

There is no per meal protein modification listed for bodybuilders. The only modification regarding protein is that the 1g per pound limit is mandatory for the general plan and highly recommended for bodybuilders because higher than 1g causes fat gain and a marginal increase in muscle mass.

I have not read the book yet, interested but still skeptical on spending $30. But anyways, can you bulk on NHE? If so, then the increase in kcal would come from fat and carbs?

With the bodybuilders diet you gain muscle while staying lean. There are no recommendations on how to bulk. If you're going to bulk by the rules you can go beyond 1g protein and eat as much fat as possible but you must stay under 30g carbs.
