    This is broscience.

    The body needs calories for energy, and an adequate supply of nutrients including protein and fats.

    While you couldn't live off protein powder and water, if you blended in some oats and whole milk, and consumed sufficient calories, yes you could live off it indefinitely and even make gains.

    Whey isn't natural? You sure about that? Just because it is processed, much like your cereals and things, does not mean it is not naturally occuring.

    No. Just no.

    Excessive protein intake IS NOT HARMFUL. This has been well studied. But, you cannot survive off protein alone for long durations. Carbs yes, but fats no. Well you would live, but it wouldnt be optimal.

  5. You could spend hundreds of dollars at Tnation for their supplement only diet. Let us know how you do
