Wanna build mass but will too much protein get me fat again?

Hey girls. I'm asking this question here because abviously I can't ask any of my guy friends because our bodies just work differently.

I've been hitting the gym every monday, wednesday, and friday for around a month now, and a few months before that I was going jsut about everyday but kind of fell of the bandwagon so to speak. In any event, I've been working my upper body everyday that I go, and so it gives my body a day to rest in between.

I've been told by my guy friends that after every workout, I need to take in a ton of protein, otherwise I won't grow. But I'm worried that if I take in too much protein and my body doesnt digest it, then it'll turn into fat because I have been told that by a few people.

So I'm kind of stuck as to what I should be doing. I can't really do alot of cardio because we all know the only decent cardio is swimming and I don't have access to a pool, and running but my hips, knees, and pretty much the lower half of my body is shot to **** from dancing. So since I can't really do alot of cardio, and my diet is really as good as it can get, what else can I do to prevent gaining any fat but keep building up the upper half of m body as much as possible? Any comments are greatly appreciated, thx

    You need protein to feed the muscle. An excess of calories from whatever source of food can make you put weight on. The easiest way to keep it off and build some muscle is to eat a decent level of protein, minimum to moderate carbs and low fats ensuring the fats you eat are a good source (oily fish for example). For cardio, what about rowing? Cross trainers don;t put a lot of strain on knees and are a good all over CV workout, maybe try that.
