I just read on a website and it talked about how eating too much protein can be dangerous:
“In the off-season, bodybuilders typically eat 1.25 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight each day. Before competitions, many increase their protein intake to 1.75 to 2.0 g per pound. However, eating too much protein can have many negative effects. First, it may lead to higher levels of homocysteine, a by-product of protein metabolism and an independent risk factor for heart disease. Moreover, having too much protein in your body can cause irreversible kidney damage and increase your risk of osteoporosis.”
So while we’ve rehashed plenty of times that there are no proof that too much protein leads to kidney damage, but what about osteoporosis? I remember in the “Roundtable” people were talking about this subject of “eating too much protein” but I can’t find the Roundtable anymore!!! Where’d it go?
