    excessive protein causes gout, kidney damage?






    I found the following article interesting:

    http://www.cbass.com/HighProtein.htm

    Should I be worried about this? I'm a 150lb male
    taking in about 150g of protein. 1/2 of which is
    from protein (whey) shakes.

    as far as I know it's myth (the high protein part), however if your 'high-protein diet' is high in saturated fat/cholesterol and low in fiber that is a problem.

    High protein diets typically emphasize foods such as meat and eggs – which are high in saturated fat – and limit foods high in carbohydrates, such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains and nonfat milk products -- which provide important nutrients and fiber.

    I wouldn't be concerned. You are not even eating that much protein anyway. I eat way more than 1g per lb. of bw. Also that article says that you should eat low glycemic carbs, which are a staple of a bodybuilders diet. So if you are eating only 150g of protein I am sure your diet is filled in with lots of healthy carbs(oatmeal, brown rice, sweetpotatos and fiberous veggies, etc....) and healthy fats. The benefits of a high protein diet are far greater than those of a high carb diet, in my opinion.

    Yeah, that article seems to be a warning against those who consume heavy protein but don't follow a balanced diet that contains slow burning fibrous carbs and healthy fats....
