To much of a good thing?

I've been eating a Myplex lite smoothie with berries, banana and milk in the AM with these specs:

Serving Size: 1 Packet (41g)

Amount Per Serving:

Calories: 190
Calories from Fat: 25
Total Fat: 2.5 g
Saturated Fat: 1 g
Cholesterol: 15 mg
Sodium: 590 mg
Potassium: 540 mg
Total Carbohydrates: 18 g
Dietary Fiber: 4 g
Sugars: 2 g
Protein: 25 g


AND a smoothie for lunch with Smoothie King's Low Carb Gladiator mix, soy milk and a banana with these specs:


Calories: 180
Calories from Fat: 0
Total Fat: 0
Saturated Fat: 0g
Cholesterol: 0 mg
Sodium: 150 mg
Potassium: 355 mg
Total Carbohydrates: 1 g
Dietary Fiber: 0 g
Sugars: less than 1 g
Protein: 45 g

Snacks are almonds/nuts, celery with p/butter, hard boiled eggs, cheese sticks ect. Iíll eat a decent meal for dinner but not always the healthiest.

I work out 28 minutes on an elliptical 3-4 days a week during lunch and do 45-60 minutes of kickboxing 3 times a week at home.

Am I overloading myself on protein? If so, what does my body do with the Ďextraí and what do I need to change? I love smoothies for breakfast and lunch is just easy to replace on days I workout. Iíve considered doing one for dinner on school nights but am worried of the adverse effects this could have.

I'm trying like HELL to get this baby weight off and don't want to be doing something wrong.



Iím too slow for the fast cars and too fast for the slow cars.

Say you got a dinner with a good amount of protein, around 30g. You'd be sitting at right about 110g of protein a day, which should be a very healthy amount for you (guesstimating).

But just to let you know what too much protein can do: it will mostly come out in waste. But getting it to waste is very taxing on the liver and can overwork it.

Does that mean I need to cut down or not eat so many smoothies per day?

I was just told it would cause me to put ON weight... which isn't the way I was trying to go here.

Good Job Rhonda. Keep at it. As far as to much protein on that level you are taking in. I would stay where you are at. I would maybe try & run a mile or half a mile a day also.


GOD BLESS TEXAS

You excrete extra protein, whether in total amount or whether too much in one sitting, in urine. At the amount that you are taking in, you are more than ok. You would actually have to be taking MUCH more than that to experience any negative effects such as fat storage or and increase in lipid profiles (liver baddies). Looks good to me!

No, like I said, you are in a good range of protein right now.

I was just answering your other question by telling you what could happen if you were to consume too much protein. The only way protein is going to put ON weight is if you are putting on muscle mass (good mass).
