how much protein is too much

[Post Followup ] [ Anabolic Forum Board ]

Hi everyone. I am asking this question in the hopes that someone will answer on experience, not theory: I have read of many weightlifters eating upwards of 300 grams of protein a day, but I learned, in nutrition classes, by reading health journals, by learning about the body, that too much protein will be spent as body waste. You only create muscle by resistance training, not by eating protein. It is also hard on the liver, and any extra protein that your body doesn't put to waste is converted to fat. So....

why do people still eat unGodly amounts of protein? Do any of you have any experiences on this? I eat about 175 grams a day, which is quite a lot by medical standards, but I read that Lou Ferrigno eats about 180 grams a day.

Thats a good question. I have read in some articles that the human body can only utilize a small amount of protein each day. This article stated that bodybuilders only need a little more than what you the average person gets in in a regular diet. Then on the other hand, I read (in muscle mags) that you need about 1 gram of protein for each pound of body weight. The thing you have to keep in mind that these are the same muscle mags that want you to buy their line of super duper protein powder for the low low price of $60-$70/ container. It kinda makes you wonder, doesen't it?

I have personally found I can maintain size and strength on not much protein, but if I want to put on mass I do need to ramp it up quite a bit, but I don't do that for much longer then 6 to 8 weeks at a time.
