Too much protein make you gain weight?

  1. Too much protein make you gain weight?


    I know a guy that takes like a 5-6 shakes a day and he can never get himself cut up. I was wondering if one takes alot of protein shakes does is make it more difficult for them to lose weight?


  2. I know that I do 5 shakes a day, along with 3 meals of meat totalling 275g of protein a day and I'm losing weight, and still gaining muscle. but then again I'm 280 pounds. basically if they aren't working out I believe the proper ratio is 1g to every kilo of lbm. pound to kilo = 2.2lb=1 kilo...i've heard people doing up to 2.5g of day to their lbm tho. so I'm not 100% sure, all I know is 275g and I'm still doing great!

    k man thanks... i take about three shakes a day equally about 180 grams of protein and than i make sure i pick up my other protein throughout my diet. i am just in a cutting stage and didnt know if this was hurting my chances of get cut.

  4. I'm in a calorie deficit so I could be considered cutting. But at the same time I'm trying to convert the fat to muscle, so I could be recomping... best bet try 1-1.5g of protein a day

    That's impossible.

    he's right... theres no way to transform fat into muscle...
    a recomp is when you lose fat but at the same time gain muscle

  8. bottom line...calories are calories

  9. Surplus calories in vs expending calories out = weight gain, that's period!

  10. Agree with the calories, but I think whole foods are better on a cut, your body doesnt have to work as hard to digest the shake, where as whole foods stoke the metabolism (clean whole foods). I never had any success cutting until i started removing most of my shakes and replacing with whole foods. There are alot of variables though ( genetics, BMR etc..)

    Yeah I agree with this, plus your body can only digest and use so much protein at once. If you take in a lot, make sure it's a blend, or slow release protein, or else too much at once could get stored as fat. It will just get converted to glucose and then fat.

    do you want to gain muscle or fat?

    I don't believe in genetics, but yes, there is no substitute for whole/healthy/clean foods

    Yeah, I didn't know what he wanted to gain; he just asked if eating to much will cause a person to gain weight...

    taking more in than expending causes weight gain...I suppose that's what he was looking for, just a basic answer to his question. Other than that, I have no clue why he posed the question.
