Is there such a thing?
What would too much protein a day cause?
And secondly, is there such a thing as too much protein while on a testosterone cycle
well on cycle is a total mystery. but 80% of everyone on any fitness forum will throw out that 1.5-2g per lb of body weight bull****. after all, more is better right?
Too many calories (over your maintenance level) coming from protein, carbs, or fats can cause you to add body fat.
A lot of excess protein can put added stress on your kidneys as well.

Too many people neglect fat and overcompensate with protein
Can you overdose protein while on a testosterone cycle
Wether your on a test cycle or not excess protein isnt always a good thing. I stay at 1g per lean mass, why do you say "overdose"? Its not like you'll wake up in a hospital with tubes in your throatOriginally Posted by Thomasxavier
I weigh 177 right now, and am 5'11. My goal is to get up to 190, then cut down to around 8% bodyfat. I am currently at around 13%.
My macros are along the lines of 70% protein a day, 20% carbs and 10% fat. I can tell by your earlier post that you will yell at me for this.
What would you consider excessive amounts of protein, if I am 177 lbs and on a 600mg a week test cyp cycle
on cycle or not, your macros are whack. How did you decide on those? 40/30/30 c/f/p. Lift heavy. Some of your gain will be fat. That's just how it works. The inverse is also true.
Too much pro and not enough fat.
Should I add a few teaspoons of olive oil a day? How many would you guys recommend?
you need a macro tracker. I use my fitness pal but there are others as well.
shouldnt you already know basic nutrition before going on a cycle?
arnt you? your the one making the stupid threads with the newby questions. my sccount actually shows my ageOriginally Posted by Thomasxavier
heres one for you
shouldnt you learn how to exercise before using steroids?
no he isnt, now go read about nutrition.
Fact - One pound of mammal muscle contains about 140 grams of protein: The rest (in order of mass) is water, fats, and carbohydrates.
Fact - It requires approximately 2500-3000 additional kcal to biosynthesize one pound of human muscle
Fact - No published study (and there are 1000's of them out there) shows any benefit WRT to strength or muscle mass when protein consumption exceeds 1 g/lb of body weight.
Within your muscles you have anabolic capacity and anabolic efficiency. Its more about those latter two terms, along with sufficient energy intake that will dictate muscle gains. Consuming an excess of protein will:
A. Decrease wallet size
B. Be deaminated (remove the nitrogen) to ultimately form glucose or fatty acids
C. Increase the work of the kidneys to filter and excrete the excess nitrogen (ammonia)
D. Decrease blood pH resulting in a state of mild chronic metabolic acidosis
E. Which will then result in the excretion of calcium and phosphorus in an attempt to maintain blood pH
F. All of the above are not good.
