WHy can't I eat 200g of protein a day, just in case I need more than I'm getting? What happens to the extra protein?

You can if you drink plenty of water, the extra protein would just be turned into energy the same way fats/carbs would I assume.
>>
>>35491585
You need decent fats and carbs for health and energy respectively, on top of protein for muscle, specially when you're taxing your body with gym (I'm assuming on top of a proper lifestyle)

Eating nothing but protein will kill your mood, energy, health and leave you ridiculously constipated.

extra protein turns into fat bro, but also if ur taking it in powder then its shitty for ur liver
slow and steady wins the race dude, stick to the research and just take it easy

Turns to glycogen and eventually into fat.

I wasn't planning on a PSMF or anything. i eat a standrad, /fit/minded diet. Perhaps a more precise question would be does the excess protein turn into fat, and if so, how in the hell is that possible?
>>
>>35491585
Bruh I eat 350g a day. Stop being a pussy and JUST DO IT. You really have nothing to lose by trying it. It's had a noticeable effect for me, it could for you too

>does the excess protein turn into fat
yes
>and if so, how in the hell is that possible?
Because protein has energy in it, and the human body turns energy it doesn't use into fat as storage
>>
>>35491636
I read a study somewhere that had subjects eat the same calorie surplus in either protein, fat, or carbs, and the protein group didn't gain appreciable fat. Still trying to find it...
>>
>>35491585
Pretty sure you just shit out any you don't use. Most Americans eat like 5x the protein they need with all those burgers and lack of exercise.
>>
Excess protein is broken down and excreted via the urea cycle. The body does not have a way to store surplus protein (like glycogen for carbs and adipose tissue for fats), so the protein that is not used is broken down. Basically, you piss it out.

They say Americans have the most valuable piss on the planet due to all the wasted protein from burgers and excess vitamins in products that want a "packed with vitamins!" sticker.

might become gout.

I learned in a physiology class that using protein for energy only happens during starvation because it releases a toxic byproduct/s
