too much protein?
ive noticed that my protein intake was really high.. i weigh 175lbs and my daily intake of protein is averaging 350g. Is this bad for my health?
I read somewhere that a few ppl have died from large intake of protein...
Am i at risk?
I am currently trying to put on as much lean mass as possible. (super clean diet by the way) (all protein is coming from turkey, chicken, tuna, protein powders.. occasional roundeye steak. all carbs from oatmeal, wholegrain bread and skim milk)
My protein is 45%. Carbs 35%. and Fat 20%. how is that for bulking?

Ah, it's just too much protein. What you're getting right now wouldn't give you anymore results superior to what you'd witness at about 220g of protein per day.
350g of protein for a person 170 pounds isn't necessary. Extra protein that isn't used by muscle tissue is usually stored in the form of fat, so I wouldn't consider it necessary, stick to about 220g of protein per day which would equal = 880 calories. Plenty enough.

Have most of those calories coming from carbs if you're trying to put on weight. ~200g protein like GymRat said and your body will do the rest. Don't skimp on the good fats either.

I was thinking about the same thing as redrocket, I am on the AD now and like today my protein intake was 347 grams and I weight about 159 lbs right now. Since I am cutting I have to keep my fat down to about 20% of my total calories which I do leaving high protein levels. Is this alright considering I am on the Anabolic Diet?
