    what happens to excess amino acids?

    What happens to extra protein that your body doesn't need from meals? Does it turn to glucose? Does it get converted to fatty acids then stored as fat? Pissed away?

    excess amino acids are deaminated (removal of the amino group -NH2 and a Hydrogen atom) in the liver. This results in formation of ammonia which is combined with carbon dioxide to form urea. Urea is taken to kidneys and is excreted in the urine when you piss, amongst other waste.

    The leftovers are called keto acids and can be used dircetly if required for energy, or stored like Hulk said as fat, or to make glucose.
