    Lightbulb Very high protein (300 g a day)

    Hi,

    can someone provide information about eating 300 g of protein a day?

    Background information:
    - 31 years
    - 182 lb
    - Lifting 6 days a week
    - Bulking
    - I know that 1 g/lb is enough
    - Current macros on a typical day: 3000 cals / 280 g pro / 85 g fats / 260 g carbs
    - I enjoy protein much more than fat and carbs
    - I have a genetic disorder that I store A LOT of water from eatings carbs so I wanna keep them as low as possible

    Recommendations are welcome

    Thanks

    What will happen well the excess protein will most likely be used as energy as you low on carbs therefore it will converted as glucose or simply wasted.

    That is about it other then your wallet may come lighter from it. If you are tolerant of that amount of protein with no side effects then carry on but it will do nothing special then carbs or fats would do.

    Lymphedema :/

    The fact that excess protein is converted into carbs is interesting...

    What would you recommend? 1 g/lb protein and upping fats?

    Yes as I suggested in post #2

    Fat is cheaper than all that unnecessary protein

    Hey good call.

    But there is a slight middle ground also. "Fats" doesn't have to mean fried food, olive oil, butter, etc. OP could also just try eating something like peanut butter, which is 14% protein by caloric content, almonds (13%), seeds and nuts in general. OP mentions he's bulking currently, so this may also make the bulk easier to achieve with less food volume.

    Gotta experiment. Many people report far better recovery and more visible abs with more protein and less other stuff.

    Also, 260 grams of carbs for a 185 lb guy is NOT low carb. I guess it depends on your definition of “low carb”, like, to me low carb is 50-150 grams.

    re calculate your protein.

    Protein
    - Protein in a surplus.
    The findings also support previous recommendations that a protein consumption of at least 1.6 g/kg/day is necessary to maximize muscle protein accretion in individuals involved in resistance training programs.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3879660/
    - Protein on a deficit
    Protein needs for energy-restricted resistance-trained athletes are likely 2.3-3.1g/kg of Fat Free Mass (FFM) scaled upwards with severity of caloric restriction and leanness.
