#1 – There’s No Such Thing as too much Protein
You’ve probably heard that your daily diet doesn’t include enough protein and that you need more and much more, but that’s not the case for most individuals. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that adults aged between 19 and 30 consume nearly 100 grams of protein per day, which is double the recommended amount for a person who eats a 2,000 calorie diet.
But what happens when you eat too much protein? If you’re a high-protein dieter for a long time, you could be raising your risk of kidney damage. Researchers from Rovira I Virgili University found that high-protein dieters had 66% more at risk of dying than those who eat a lesser amount of protein. So just be mindful not to leap over your daily limit.
