The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I don't know about anyone else, but unless I'm eating 6 double whopper's per day, it takes some planning to eat 300+ g protein. So I wouldn't even be worried about taking too much in. Just take in 1-1.5g/lb protein.

    I personally have taken in as much as 400g protein before and felt fine. I drink plenty of water and my piss is always clear, so obviously my kidney's are working fine. I currently take in about 300g protein, and that's on paper. I gotta plan meals out to hit that high. I wouldn't worry about takin in too much protein. As I said, 1-1.5g/lb protein is fine.

    It's all about concentration. The body doesn't care about x number of grams. All the biochemistry in the body is based off of concentrations. As long as you maintain a healthy concentration of protein, be it by taking in 50 grams or 400, you will be fine. It's when that concentration goes way up that you start to have problems.

    I think overall calories will have much more to do with weight gain than protein intake levels.
