An excessive protein intake can be harmful to your liver, brain and nervous system. When you eat protein, your body produces ammonia, a toxin that your liver makes harmless, according to Medline Plus. Eating too much protein over a long period of time can cause your liver to become overworked, allowing ammonia and other toxic substances to build up in your bloodstream. This can lead to hepatic encephalopathy, a condition marked by a
Many high-protein foods, particularly from animal sources, contain an abundance of cholesterol, which contributes to the development of hardened arteries that can lead to serious medical conditions, such as heart attack and stroke. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute recommends limiting your cholesterol intake to no more than 200 milligrams per day, but a 6-ounce broiled porterhouse steak has 126 milligrams of cholesterol and half a roasted chicken breast has 83 milligrams of cholesterol. Eating too much animal protein can cause you to exceed the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's guidelines, putting you at risk for dangerous conditions.

Too much Protein intake

Great job not specifying what "too much" is for protein intake. No credibility whatsoever and I still wonder how you're still green.
As for cholesterol, there is little to no connection between dietary cholesterol and blood serum cholesterol. Eating a lot of cholesterol rich foods isn't damaging to your body until you develop high cholesterol genetically or with a poor lifestyle. But a simple lifestyle change will fix that for the most part.Fates colliding. Love Undying.

Your point about little connection between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol is false, because the increase in dietary cholesterol has been linked with atherosclerosis, which is the build-up of plaques that can narrow or block blood vessels.

224 / 35 * 100 = 640 calories a day.
Good job OP. That's two ****ing chicken breasts.
even fi its 10%
224 / 10 * 100 = 2240 calories a day.
I'm still gonna be losing weight.
Except wait. If 56g= 35% and that's okay.
Then I should be able to eat 35% of MY caloric intake which is 3000 calories atm.
So 3000 cals.... 3000 * .35 = 1050. So 1050 calories for protein. Cool. 1050 / 4 = 262 grams of protein is 35% of my diet.
You are a ****ing moron.

I understand this is bb.com, but please post links to the full studies that demonstrate the ideas you're talking about. I have never heard of liver problems from excess protein. I've heard of kidney issues, but those ideas are flawed.
Also, I've read that it's more about the size of cholesterol rather than cholesterol levels. I'll be glad to post studies about that if you post your studies.
And furthermore, I consistently eat 300-350g protein daily, blood tests are fine.GSF
