Will protein convert to fat if you eat more than needed?

I always thought that it got excreted in the urine?

Only one was a question.

The other was a sentence with a punctuation error.

Protein has many uses other than tissue repair. You would have to be eating a very large amount before anything significant is stored. It will most likely be used for energy first especially when carbohydrates deplete during intensive exercise. The nitrogen part of a protein is the part excreted and will always be excreted if your intake exceeds your requirements which is the general plan in hypertrophy or strength gains.

ooh! I know the response to that one!!

nuh-uh!!!!!!

It doesn't really work that way. A small amount that got converted to glucose could get stored as fat temporarily, but it's not much. So basically the answer is no. But "not really" would be more accurate.

Actually gaining fat is 100% hormones and an as yet unknown property of the fat tissue.

I disagree, it appears to have been a question with a grammatical error.

So you have confused "I always thought that it got" with "Does it get"? Please tell me you're joking.

To answer that, maybe some keytones might go that way, but generally it goes out the other way. Unless your urine is chunky.

Well I was joking in that of course this is all ridiculous, but there's a one-word fix to the original question to make it correct: "I always thought that it got excreted in the urine - correct?"

I guess that protein would first convert to glucose, if it cannot be stored in the body. Then if this glucose can also not be stored in the body then it will get converted to fat.

So I guess an excess would get converted to fat.

Actually I believe that is why we get an insulin response from whey protein, because it can get stored fast, and left overs can convert to glucose fast as well.
