Protein
 
I have heard that the amount of protein a bodybuilder eats is very bad for his kidneys. How much protein should you be eating and how much is too much?

Some people just worry too much. It is recommended to try to get 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. Although some bulking recommendations will go as high as 300 grams a day. You'll be fine at 1 gr per lb.

^ He's 100% correct around 1-1.5 grams per pound is about what you need. Right now I get in the high 200 grams of protein and I'm fine.

I have 10% or so scarring damage to my kidneys from an autoimmune disease I had as a kid. I take in from 200 - 350 grams of protein a day and have no issues with it in my quarterly blood/urine tests.

I really would concentrate on just establishing good, healthy eating patterns. That means a hearty breakfast and a further 2-3 large meals with a healthy balance of proteins, fats and carbs.

Extremes aren't sustainable and aren't necessary to begin with. Getting into a good routine of eating good food regularly IS important.

I do want to point out this its anecdotal evidence only. I'm only one case, and its only 3-4 tests a year. You might be able to make a case study out of it, but it doesn't compare to a double blind placebo controlled randomized study done by people who know what they are doing. That being said, yeah, its pretty good evidence that it won't kill you immediately.

Don't forget your fruits and veggies.... Spinach is what makes a man strong. :mh:
