    Excess protein, like other macronutrients, will turn to fat if they are not used.

    100 grams of protein in 1 meal is not needed in my opinion.

    You should be looking at consuming 40g of protein per meal. Just split it up into another meal to make the most of your protein intake.

    There are a load of different figures and studies thrown around regarding the issue of how much protein can be effectively taken in one sitting. But I think you'll find everyone will be pretty much unanimous in their agreement that 100g is far too much.

    And 100 grams of protein = ~400 calories from protein alone, isnt.

    no, protein will not be turned into fat if its not used

    once nitorgen is stripped off aminos the excess will follow the carb OR fat pathway

    so if you are depleted of carbs it will not store as body fat , simply turn into glucose via an inefficient process and provide usable energy, not stored in adipose tissue

    Well yes, if you are depleted and eat lots of protein in one meal, i.e. too much then it will be turned into glucose via gluconeogenesis.

    But what if your diet is heavy on carbs...

    you dont even have to be depleted

    and im sure you know the answer to the second question?

    my point is that 'excess protein' is not stored as bodyfat as a given which you had initially stated
