Gaining muscle without damage

Does anybody know how bad high amounts of protien are? I'm trying to gain size and everyone keeps telling me load up on protien. I hear too much can damage your liver. Anybody?

    Nothing to worry about. The volumes you will need to eat as a female won't be too bad. If anything it is kidneys not liver that are supposed to be effected butt hat's in a ketogenic type diet. Eat carbs and drink plenty water and you should be fine

    too much proteins bad for your kidneys and it's because your body pees out any excess protein so it has to work overtime to get rid of excess.
    i think it's only if you eat too much protein over a long space of time.

    The thing with protein is that amino acids can't be stored in the body. The body is in constant need of aminos but at times there can be an excess and that is when the body has to get rid of it. The excess can be converted to glucose and then used as fuel, it's treated as a carbohydrate basically..and if the body does not need that of course then it is mostly converted to triglycerides and stored as bodyfat.

    During protein digestion there is a byproduct called ammonia that is converted to urea in the liver and excreted by the kidneys.

    Studies show that a heavy loaded protein diet affects people that have already existing kidney problems..it causes complications.

    This is where the news of liver and kidney damage comes from in regards to heavy protein consumption.

    How much do you plan on consuming per day in relation to your bodyweight?

    I am about 125lbs and am taking in about 200-220 grams of protein a day. That includes about 2 shakes and the rest if chicken and sometimes fish. What do you think about me taking BCAA's after my workouts?

    I take them and think they're a great way of getting some additional protein in without the fullness factor that you can get from eating all the bloody time

    It doesn't necessarily hold muscle.

    It quickly provides amino acids to the body.

    Amino acids are found in protein (building blocks of protein basically).
