I've been doing some reading online trying to find out what your body does when you consume excess protein. There seems to be 2 views on this:
1). Excreted in urea, so go to town and eat as much as you want
2). Glycogenesis: Your body converts it to glucose and if it isnt used its converted into fat.
I know in starvation 2 happens, but im eating 5 times a day so am far from it. Atm im in a cutting phase doing Carb Cycling. the reason id like to know is for my final meal i eat a pathetic amount of fish/meat in order to keep calories down. I'm wondering if i start eating more will my body convert it to fat? And if so how much of the calories will it actually convert to fat? I.e. how costly is the process calorie wise
Any threads on this would be brilliant, or web sites where i can read about it.
