Too Much Protein?



Recommended Posts

Is it possible to consume too much Protein in a day, assuming you're getting plenty of fluids and still eat the appropriate portion sizes?

That's some high sodium @GradyCat

Not really when combined with a very low carb diet.

I was getting 90-120 gms on the days I workout, in part because I'm not absorbing Protein well. Low blood levels of protein. My weight loss slowed to a crawl. So I decided I was consuming too much protein.

By no means is this criticism, but do you eat any fruit or veggies? I'm curious how others in the post surgery phase get by day to day with meals. This screenshot is devoid of them and I wondered if it was normal for you.

I have Kidney Function tests annually, a full CBC, Liver function etc, This is because I have one Kidney and a fatty liver. Also a thing called MGUS.

Anyway, my nephrologist, hematologist, both told me, as a Kidney Donor, avoid red meat. Eat any animal meat rarely if ever, but especially red meat. I am close to being a pesca-vegetarian, but eat meat occasionally.

The RNY reduces the amount of Protein we adsorb, so I think we should stick to whatever our program or surgeon recommends.

Ask your Dr to include Kidney function tests in your next blood work, and do so annually. That should help alleviate your concern.

I'm currently on a 60-day "Carnivore Diet" with my husband who is doing it to improve his blood sugar and inflammation (He's diabetic). We're eating nothing but meat, cheese, and eggs for 60 days.

Thanks for asking. He's lost 12.5 pounds in 2 weeks and his fasting blood glucose went from averaging 130's to 140's down to 91 or 92. He also has a little less back pain (inflammation) now. He's 56 years old and started out weighing 270.

That's fabulous! I've been contemplating that change for Mr. F. I don't know if my guts can handle that right now since they are barely moving as is. LOL. But we've brought his bgs down from 200+ to now around 110ish and I'd love to see more days in the 90s!

Congrats to him on his weight loss!! 12.5lbs is outstanding--especially with T2 (in 2 weeks)!!!!

How is your loss going right now? Are you still losing?

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
