Hi

I am currently cutting and take 300g of protein on non-weight-lifting days and 280g on weight-lifting days.

I am between 6'3 and 6'4 and weight 188lbs. I perform cardio 6/7 per week.

Now according to some articles, the rule is 1g per lb which would come out 188gram of protein a day. Will this excess of protein cause problems for me like gaining extra fat?

Please help

Thanks

No way bro, 1g of protein per body pound it’s the minimum not the maximum, you can consume 300-400g of protein per day with no problem.
I just don’t understand why you consume less protein on training days!! Protein is fundamental to maximum recovery, mainly after workout..

And where did you get that from? The minimum protein you need is 60-100g/day.

Large amounts of protein are not a problem for most people. Athletes and the obese regularly consume >250g/day without problems. HOWEVER in some individuals excess protein causes gout (excess uric acid) and kidney stones (calcium oxalate).

Just make sure you drink enough water.

i'm talking about athletes
60-100 are the minimum recommended by the docs to sedentary people, but if you are a lifter you need much more then that 1g per pound minimum (to athletes)

but fat its fat, protein its protein you don't get fat with protein, protein gives you calories and calories are energy and that’s energy only torn to fat only if you don’t use it in exercise
all about protein in this articles http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/bbinfo.php?page=Protein, particulary this one to the question http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/pierce3.htm


see this FAQ's about Nutrition on animalpak.com, you will find there a clearly answer to your question:http://www.animalpak.com/html/article_details.cfm?ID=79&section=diet#q4

Agree with the rest, water question etc...

1-2 grams of protein per body pound. weight x 1-2 of amount of protein in grams.

Good Luck.

You SHOULD be getting MORE protein on lifting days then off days. Change the 300-280 around. BUT that is plenty of protein anyway. I struggle to get in 1g per pound.
