I've been eating my body weight in protein. I.e. I weigh 140 and that's how many grams I eat.
I just got an email from calorieking stating that too much protein is bad for you and that only 10% to 35% of your calories should come from protein. Right now I'm doing 40/40/20. Ps I snickered at the 10% number. Having taken an Anthropology class I know that our ancestors were originally scavengers and ate the meat off caucuses other animals left behind. There's no way our bodies have evolved to survive off such a low level of protein.
Calorie king said too much protein could also cause osteoporosis. On the same note i heard that weight lifting can increase bone density. So here I find an interesting conundrum:
Weight lifters have high protein diets, which theoretically cause osteoporosis. However their activities aid in increasing bone density?
Are there any long time lifters in here that suffer from osteoporosis?
Finally what do you weigh and how much protein do you eat daily? And weigh in on this article please
