How much protein before its bad for you?
Its getting better and I'm learning how to sort my day out better in terms of meal timings, but as of yet its still happening.
Not as much or as late as before, but for the moment, given my pretty busy schedule, sometimes I have no choice but to do so.
For example I might have my 35 grams protein shake, my pb sandwich, and then remember I have to get my 200 grams of protein a day in and have to find another 20-30 grams from something or other.
That seems like allot of protein in one sitting, and actually allot of protein in general per day.
Are there any serious side effects for consuming either too much protein for my weight, and having too much in one sitting?

Personally don't care if I eat before bed. But in case schedule happens to dictate, that'd be one of my two meals for the day and would be choking down as much as possible. So 80-100 grams or more. Fruit and vegetables all day though. Just get in your 150-200 grams whenever until you get over 200lbs,and then bump it up accordingly. I weigh 180 or so.
Probably only potential for side affect if you have weak organs, or bad health in general--system might not react well. Obv not a doc but youre young and assume healthy so don't stress, Son!

Honestly, timing does not matter with solid foods... I obsessed over this for almost 5 years..dude it doesnt matter, shakes don't matter. You just have to eat and track protein to get around 1g/day. My favorite video by bearded beast was the one on lifting and having fun. He said how time heals all wounds in weight training and not to over complicate things. I was doing the exact opposite of that. I did Intermittent fasting for 2 years, low carb, high carb, keto, everything and I was unable to train to since I was injured from kickboxing. I started lifting in April and tracked calories/protein and didn't do anything about timing.
Several places ive seen above 1.3b/lb doesnt do anything really other than be broken for glucose, but i havnt seen anything really saying up to 2g/lb causes problems of normal healthy people without organ issues.
Eat when you want to eat, just make sure you gain a little weight each month. Having said that, if your main source of protein are shakes i would stick with having them every 3-4 hours in smaller doses (around 30g) because they do get oxidized quickly unless they are solid foods.
I usually have a shake a few hours after waking, workout later in the day and eat dinner. Or have eggs, then shake few hours later, workout and dinner. Your healthy, your weight training.

All of the research that shows negative reactions from too much protein was done on post-menopausal women. They often show issues with organ functions if they have too much protein, primarily in the kidneys, but I believe that the negative effects are overrated for healthy younger people. You won't have any negative side effects from 200g of protein, and if you take in 60-80 grams in one sitting every now and then you'll be just fine. I've been known to drink protein shakes that have over 100g of protein and have had no noticeable problems.
Try not to create problems that don't exist. Do what you need to do, follow the program you've got, and deal with problems if and only if they actually arise.
As a side note, it's good to see you still active around here. People like me need people like you to make us feel important, lol.

The body can handle a significantly large amount of any macronutrient in a given feeding, but the question we should be concerned about is how much of that dose results in a sustained rate of muscle protein synthesis (MPS)? Furthermore, is there a ceiling/cap to postprandial MPS?
The past several years of research have elucidated upon this topic substantially. One such example being the finding that co-ingestion of leucine with whey protein did not result in a significant difference between whole-body protein turnover in individuals who drank solely whey protein. Granted the caveat of this study is that it was concerned with whole-body protein turnover, not just skeletal muscle protein turnover (for body composition purposes, we obviously arenít looking for hypertrophy of say, liver or gut tissue).

Farting? But you'll be asleep so no worries.
No, not really. Unless you are not drinking enough fluids, you will be fine.
Good for you ensuring you get your protein....
I trained for years under-eating and wondering where the size was!
Without adequate food you may get a little stronger, you may get leaner, but you won't get bigger.
