But does that mean that you will gain if you go over your calorie needs?

Gaining is only one consequence of eating/drinking too much of one thing...you should be concerned with your overall and long term health as well as what the scale is doing!!!

I keep my protein at 30% of my daily calories but I eat a variety everyday...most days I have Greek yogurt with protein powder added, turkey, chicken, tofu, low fat cheese, nuts/nut butter and cottage cheese, so my protein comes from varied sources!!! Protein powders are convenient but I think other sources are important too!!!

Best of luck in your Eating Clean quest!!!

Too much of anything is not good. Yes too much protein is not good. I usually stick w/ 1 g per pound that I weigh or my goal weight.

Eating over 30% - 35% protein of your daily calories can cause adverse effects such as:
----------------------------------
* bad breath
* weakness
* dizziness

This happens because high protein intake causes build up of toxic ketones, which will put some organs under stress such as your kidneys. It puts your kidneys into overdrive and it does this in order to flush the excessive ketones from your body. Along with these it causes for you to loose a significant amount of water, which may put you at risk of dehydration. Which can lead besides (loosing excessive water) to loose muscle mass and bone calcium with dehydration. So you might want to stay on your safe zone and within your daily allowance.

For Example:
FAT approx. no more than 25% of calories
CARBS approx. 50% of caloric intake
PROTEIN approx. 25% of daily calories

I have to eat quite a bit of protein because I am insulin resistant, and the protein values provided by sparkpeople are much lower than what I need. I think that as long as you feel fueled (i.e., getting enough good carbs) and your calories are good, extra protein is unlikely to be a problem. A scoop of protein powder in oatmeal probably balances it out nicely, I always have to have meat/eggs on the side of mine.

Hi, I read that the recommended amount of protein should be 1gram protien to 1 pound of body weight.

I also read in Clean Eating by Tosca Reno that too much of any food would assist in weight gain and that includes whey protein.

I was wondering if it matters if you go over on your protein for the day. And also can you have too many protein shakes.....I use them alot for my snacks and sometimes end up having a scoop in my oatmeal then a scoop for my mid morning snack and then another for my afternoon snack. I'm never over my calorie limits. So what do you all think???
