Does excess protein get converted into fat, assuming there is full glycogen storage in the muscles? I've read that excess amount of AA will be converted into citrate, shuttled out of the mitrochondrial matrix, and converted into acetyl-CoA, where de novo lipogenesis will occur.

Bump. Cmon, I know some of you know something about biochemistry
>>
>>35633308
Buller buller

>>35633308
final bump, guess i'll go ask /sci/
>>
>>35633308
Yep you are right assuming you are in caloric excess.
>>
>>35633308
Any caloric surplus turns to fat after it is metabolized in the liver... Just eat 1g/lb of protein and youre good breh.
>>
>>35633308
Sounds like babby wants to show everyone how smart he is

Not all of it gets converted into fat. AA can feed into a lot of other biosynth pathways including metabolites in the TCA cycle, signalling molecules, etc

And acetyl-coa, fatty acids contrib to more than just fat - lipid membranes, steroid biosynth

>>35633308
nah breh it gets deaminated and converted to a carbohydrate

How can Alcoholics Anonymous feed into other biosynth pathways?

>>35633308
About half of all ingested dietary protein is metabolized in the liver. Some of it is oxidized for energy or converted into other things (including glucose and ketones) for use elsewhere. Protein oxidation rates change in response to intake. So, when protein intake goes up, oxidation will increase. If protein was going to be converted to fat, it would first have to be converted to glucose and only if the amount produced were then in excess of daily maintenance requirements would there be conversion to fat. That isn't going to happen under any reasonably normal circumstances.

Isn't it 1g/kg?

I've eaten protein slightly over my recommended amount (100 g of protein = 165 lbs) and I think I'm doing just fine.
>>
>>35639095
it is don't waste so much money on unecessary proteins.
>>
>>35639095
It's actually 1.5-2 g/kg of body weight, aim for 1.7 g/kg
>>
>>35639649
proof?
>>
>>35639698
Look anywhere, 1g-1lbs is the standard go to
>>
>>35638787
Any proof?
>>
>>35639649
Right, right, typo. Meant 1.3-1.7 g/kg.

That said, it seems most researchers and bodybuilders are divisive when it comes to the recommended protein intake. Everytime I try to Google this shit, it basically boils down to:

>oh hey guys amerifats are totally eating too much protein, do 1.5 g/kg
>nah brah 1 g/lb is totally proven and effective
>contradictory research blah blah blah
