That's a really solid article. I doubt most guys are reading it, but it's great info, and most flies in the face of traditional gym/nutrition mantra (more protein = better).
The full text and some other related articles (also solid stuff) are at:

It is not a limitless equation, though. Train hard, and you will force protein synthesis to recover and rebuild tissue, and eating some extra protein (over the amount needed by a sedentary individual) will allow that. But consumption of additional protein over the amount necessary for that process does not result in even more tissue creation. And of course, with truly excessive protein intake, you not only don't get the extra synthesis into tissue, but you also inherit some health issues as well. The kidney issue is overblown, but ther are health impacts o excessive protein intake. Most of us are young enough that these issues don't impact us in a way we can observe, but they impact our health all the same.Originally Posted by Chunky

I have heard(speculation) that you can absorb more protein when you are eating a meal rather than drinking a shake, because the whole foods are broken down by the digestive system slower, allowing you to absorb more protein.

That would make sense, certainly, both from the perspective of taking protein with fats, which slow digestion overall (increasing total potential absorbtion), or simply taking in a protein that simply travels more slowly, like casein vs. whey. Those considerations would certainly impact the total grams absorbed in a given period of time, as would the time of your previous meal, relative emptiness of stomach, exercise timing, etc.Originally Posted by timogburn

It is true and has more to do with the overall steps of digestions and absortion of a solid meal vs. a liquid meal rather than the makeup (macronutrients) of a meal.Originally Posted by timogburn

The liver damage comes from all the protein shakes and not the protein foods. A friend of mine had liver problems while taking in high amounts of protein and found out it was from the protein supps. Alot of people drink tons of protein supps and think they are doing themselfs good but your body can't use what it can't digest and it's harder to digest supps than it is the digest whole foods. Let me refraise that... Your body can't use supplements like it can use whole foods for growth.

And that's exactly what the thread is about. Why waste your hard earned money on all the protein when you don't need it.Originally Posted by pu12en12g
