The only truth in there is the water thing. I drink almost a gallon day, more if you count the diet soda. What is wrong with that?
Did you bother to read what I wrote? What do you NOT understand about calcium depletion?
I have never had a problem. I have never met or talked to, or even heard of anyone who ever a problem. This includes people who think they need twice as much protein as they really do. The studies are flawed.
Because of course, you can FEEL calcium depletion. And since you or your buddies don't FEEL calcium depletion, it cannot exist! Talk about flawed arguments...
I grow tired of myth busting on the subject. Or any subject.
Yes Ironman, you are the say-all and end-all of everything. I bet you're this modest in person.
I was told not to do squats and that only "pussies" do squats. This was
coming from a guy who trained his upper body only.
His statement was a joke, but the sad thing was, he really believed what he was saying.
I am not making any personal claims. If you read my above post, you will see all of my arguments are not made from me. They are made from health experts that have far more knowledge than you or I will ever have.
Now, back to the protein - I don't know what studies are being refered to, but look around - how many guys are there that have been doing this all there life and not felt any negative effects from it??
Not everything is as cut and dry as you would like it to be. Again, you can't FEEL calcium depletion.
so we took 40-50 grams a time, 3 times a day minimum. In order to use it all.
I wish I could go through protein like that all the time, but can't afford it. Maybe it was phsycological but we both made had a boost in strength.
We certainly didn't feel ill....
How's this. My friend ate nearly a pound of tunafish in a day. He had a headache for a week from all the protein. In cases like these and in nearly all cases, your mileage may vary. What you and your buddies experience is not representative of everyone. Please keep an open mind.
Overeating Protein - makes your $h1t stink and your piss yellow
Stop watching me pee, hold your nose and pass me that lean cut of prime beef.
There seems to be a lack of any reading comprehension today. Maybe if you bothered to actually read what I wrote, you wouldn't seem to be such a clueless individual.
