    High Protein Diet

    What are some of the dangers of eating a high protein diet...and how much protein do you have to eat to cause these problems to yourself?

    This worries me about adopting a semi-bb type diet. I wanna be big and strong and cut, but I also don't wanna be on dialysis or anything like that.

    Anybody who has experience in the field care to enlighten me?

    Typical BB deits of 1g protein/lb. I'm at 170, and I probably get around 150g of protein a day, give or take.

    If anything you're not getting enough protein - should be at least 1g:1lb on a cut and I've heard 1.5g:1lb on a bulk.

    I don't know how much protein you are thinking is high protein, but I have a feeling you would have trouble eating as much protein as would be required to cause problems if you have any kind of a balanced diet.

    Edit: In my diet on a cut I'm slightly over 1g:lb and I have no dietary problems or anything - forgot to mention.

    I wouldn't exceed 40% of total calories from protein to avoid overloading the Krebs Henseleit ornithine cycle (a.k.a. urea cycle) in your liver. Other than that, see http://www.sportsnutritionsociety.or...45-51-2004.pdf

    I have no dietary issues whatsoever when I eat high protein...on cheat days I often go well above 200, 250. I could eat meat all day long every day; I'm just curious to potential serious side effects of the diet.

    Focus that energy on making your diet balanced. IMO you will see much better results with a CLEAN, balanced diet then some gimmick.

    the krebs cycle doesnt happen in the liver. It happens in the cell's mitochondria

    As long as you do not already have a kidney disease, you are safe. Protein has NEVER caused a disease, however it can adversly affect an EXISTING disease!
