    What happens when I eat a lot of meat?

    When eating meat, and I mean a lot of meat, what happens to all the excess protein the body consumes?
    Suppose I eat 200 grams of cornbeef, or a 350g hamburger, or just a lot of chicken... according to the nurtitional value of those meats, I can get more than 100 grams of protein in a single meal.
    Should I even bother eating so much? Can I get by with just 100 grams of beef, for example, and not bother with more?
    How many chicken legs would give me 40-50 grams of protein, btw?

    I say get as much protein as you can. Better to have too much than too little.

    Well, of course, but it costs a lot and if everything more than 40 grams of protein goes to waste then I might not need so much...
    Now I just stuff myself whenever possible and eat till I'm full.

    Try to consume about 6 oz or more of meat at any meal. How many meals are you having a day with meat? If you are having only one then you can eat more than 6 oz. If you are having multiple meals per day (5-6) i would suggest you eat about 6-8oz. The protein will be much more efficiently digested when consumed from multiple smaller meals.

    I try to eat as many meals and as much as I can, while also trying to eat a meal the earliest I can in the morning and the closest I can to going to sleep and never letting more than 3 hours go by without putting SOMETHING in my mouth.
    Normally I try to eat at least 1 hot meat meal a day + I eat a lot of sausage sandwitches (like salami) as snacks. Or sometimes even stuff a lot of sausage and cheese into some bread and call it a big meal.

    I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time & money by eating more than 40gs of protein when eating a lot of meat.

    In my experience, if I consume too much protein in one sitting, or within a short period of time. I just sh!t it out.

    Well, you can do some damage to your kidneys if you're always eating way too much protein. Anything more than 2g/lb of lean bodyweight is probably pointless and not doing any good.

    I obviously don't mind taking too much, but if it involves spending more money or forcefully stuffing myself then I want to know if it's worth it.

    People often confuse absorbtion with utilization.

    What we are really discussing here is utilization. The idea that protein will not be absorbed by the body and will merely be "**** out" is fairly ludicrous. You would have to eat an unbelievable amount of protein for your body to merely excrete it, your body is more efficient than that. Think about it...we have evolved to utilize the nutrients we provide our body, out ancestors would sometimes go days...even weeks without food and then they would eat an extremely large helping when the time presented itself...if they merely "****" it out...this would not bode well for the survival of the species.
    NOW that being said, it is highly unlikely that all of that protein will be used for muscle amination and nitrogen balance. If you consume that much protein it is likely that the glucogenic amino acids will be oxidized by the body into glucose and stored as glycogen or bodyfat. However protein utizilation depends on several things... for instance...lets say we have 2 individuals that eat 100g of protein. One weighs 200 lbs and just finished an extremely intense workout and has fasted all day prior to the workout, while the other has been eating high protein and calories all day and has done nothing but sit on the couch. Both will absorb the same amount of protein, but the first person will likely utilize much more of it for muscle building purposes.

    The answer to your question is there is no good answer you have to somewhat play it by ear. One some days when I do my heavy squating (8 sets of deep squats and one super high rep drop set to finish off) I may eat in excess of 150g of protein in a 3 hour period after my workout. But on days I don't workout I will tend to try to spread my protein intake out more evenly over all my meals.

    I hope I didn't confuse you more.

    Peace

    Nope. That was both interesting and helpful.
    I also tend to eat a ****load of food after working out, since I take the shake and rush to eat something big shortly after to kill the hunger. And then some.

    I am talking about days before working out or on days when I don't work out at all, though.
