to much protein

hi fella's this might sound like a strange question. but just give it a think.
i've been drinkin met rx protein shakes for about a year now. its the only one which is really tasty with a respectable price tag. also i drink 2 shakes a day. i would like to no would your body become used to the protein, and over time not take up asmuch protein that u would have when u first started drinking the shake.
thanks for your help.

    thanks guys for the response, but no one has answered my question correctly.
    i no its on the science side of things, but it would be great if somebody could explain to me if the body works like this, or even if this is a radiculous question.

    If you mean could you develop a 'tolerance' for protein then no, I doubt that very much. Certainly I have never heard about that and probably would have come across something by now if that was the case.

    Actulli I did read somewhere that its best to have a low protein week every so often as your body will take measures to use protein intake as efficently as poss during this time. So therefore when you go back to have 1-2g of protein per lbs of mass your body will be more productive. How true this is I dont know

    Hiya.

    Consuming high levels of protei causes the body to release Myostatin. This is the hormone that limits muscle growth (kinda like your body's way of stopping you grow to giant freak-size or HUGELY tall).

    As said there A gerneral rule in 1g per pound of body weight.

    I've also heard it said 1g of protein per KILO of body weight, although from experience I don't think this is nearly enough.

    It's about finding a good balance. I weigh about 200lbs now and find that 150-200g protein per day is about right for steady positive gains!

    how much protein can physically be absorbed by the body and in what period? does that make sense

    Daynedem, Does your concern stem from the fact that you have ceased to make any gains recently? If this is the case you may have simply hit a plateau that can be overcome by a reorganistion of training methods and diet.

    Yes but there are so many variables and differences between individuals it is impossible to answer. Variables such as training intensity, muscle fibres broken down, diet and dietry needs, length of thre gut in individuals available to absorb protein and so on.

    cheers for that guys.
    to answer the question from tony, its no. im making pretty good gains recently and that thanks to adding an extra meal. my question was mainly aimed at drinking to many protein shakes.
    BRES, your body can absorb btw 35-40grams at one time, but yes variables come in to play as well.
    MAK cheers for your responce that was the answer i was looking for.
    thanks everybody, if anybody has anything else to add im still listening
