I've been lifting for several years now but never really put a whole lot of energy into the diet until now. Current weight 185lbs, height 72". I've always been on the thin side and taking in 255 grams of protein is getting to be extremely challenging for me. I feel full and nauseous for the entire day even when I wake up in the morning. Diet is clean, mostly lean meats, eggs, beans, and of course protein shakes. Does this nauseousness pass eventually? I'm day 3 into the diet and am having a hell of a time. Any tips/advice would be much appreciated!

Where did you come up with 255g of protein? You don't need that much. 1g/lb is more than enough.

What do your other macros look like? At 185lbs, 225g of protein is on the high side.

Chances are you can get by with much less protein without seeing any adverse effects. Greek Yogurt and Protein Powders are always my staples.

Try eating jerky as a snack. Or eating jerky to wash the taste of that yucky protein shake from your mouth.

28g of jerky = ~15g of protein, give or take a few.

How much carbs and fat are you eating? Nausea is not normal.

Yes, eat 0.8-1g of protein / pound body weight. Also ensure you get ~0.45g of fat / pound body weight as a minimum daily.

Also read the stickies at the top of the section, they will answer 99% of your questions on structuring your diet/micros/macros.

Chances are the amount of protein you are eating is more than enough and it's very likely you don't need to be anywhere near 225. How many grams are you actually eating?
How many calories are you eating?
Grams of fat and carbs?

Of course it is.

If your diet is making you nauseous then you're either doing something wrong or you have a medical condition.

And what medical school did you graduate from?

There are a plethora of reasons for nausea and not all of them mean you're doing something wrong or are the causation of an underlying medical condition. My advice is for you to not post your bad advice here anymore. Thanks.

We're discussing diet induced nausea. If you have examples of when a person would experience diet induced nausea when your diet is correct and you're not sick, then I am indeed genuinely curious. Please do elucidate.

As stated above, protein should only be that high if you prefer.

A commonly recommended minimum is ~ 0.6-0.8g/lbs.

http://www.jissn.com/content/4/1/8

So at 185 lbs, that gives you a minimum of ~ 110-150g. So ensure you don't go below those figures.

I'm not going to comment on the 'clean' vs 'dirty' rigmarole, but I will suggest you read these:

I've just finished a high intensity workout, i drink some Gatorade to get some quick electrolytes and fuel, i become nauseous.

I have been a chronic under-eater and am well under a healthy weight. I decide to start eating more food to become more healthy. The addition of food is a shock to the system, the increased caloric load makes me nauseous after my (larger) meals.

I just ran a marathon, it's time to enjoy a celebratory meal. I eat 8k calories at a local buffet. Nausea follows that meal.

I could literally go on and on with examples that refute your idiotic post. You can leave this forum or i'll make you red, your choice.

None of those are good examples of healthy eating. I don't think they refute anything, other than saying that ingesting too much too soon too quickly can lead to nausea. That's a long way from what the OP was talking about.

I tried to swallow the advice you gave and I got nauseous. Does that count?

Also, you are discussing diet induced nausea as if you have diagnosed the OP with something. You have decided what exactly is making him nauseous and you're guessing. Yes you are trying to base it off 1 post the OP made but if you think any educated healtcare professional should be giving a diagnosis like that with almost not information then you are just a confused man.

160 gram protein would be totally sufficient for you.

Protein and specifically whey is extremely satiating.

Ditching the whey shakes will probably solve your problem.

All I was trying to say is that being nauseous isn't a normal and expected side effect of a bodybuilding diet. If it were, then we'd amusingly have a "how to deal with regular nausea" subforum and tons of posts on "maximizing stomach upset for superior gains". I think it's fair to point out to the OP that this isn't a "man up bro" situation, but more of a "figure out why you're feeling off" type of thing. There are a bunch of different things that could be going wrong for him, some aren't even diet related and it may just be coincidental. A reasonable line of inquiry seemed to be to ask more about his diet in case he's doing something exceptionally strange. *shrug* I never thought I was saying anything particularly controversial.
