How Much Dietary Protein Will Prevent Muscle Loss?
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with How Much Dietary Protein Will Prevent Muscle Loss??
so I wanted to do this video on protein because it’s a common confusion with so many people we’re gonna answer the question how much dietary protein do you need to consume to prevent the loss of muscle but let me just talk about one piece of this problem at a time okay the RDAs the recommended dietary allowance for protein is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram in weight okay now I’m from the US so we don’t use kilogram we don’t use grams as much we use pounds so if you’re from other parts of the world this would make sense to you but if you’re from the US this is gonna make more sense this formula which is basically 0.36 times your pounds okay so I weigh 185 pounds so I would times 0.36 times one into five and that comes out to sixty-seven grams of protein per day that’s how much I’m supposed to consume ok there’s many problems with this recommendation which I’ll get into but that’s the minimum amount that I would need now if we just take a steak for example okay a hundred grams of steak which is a little over three ounces but let’s just say it’s three ounces to make it simple realize that this hundred gram weight of steak only gives us 25 grams of actual protein because most of it is water now this might be shocking to you you’re only getting a small portion of that being protein and a half we take it one step further and I’m not gonna even talk about the absorption of the protein I’ll talk about that next slide but I’m talking about how much of this protein actually turns into muscle or body tissue this is number two turning into body tissue well let’s take a look at the type of protein first we got breast milk which actually 49 percent of breast milk turns into body tissue eggs 48 percent that means 50 2% of those eggs do not turn in the body tissue they’re either used as fuel or is just wasted okay through the urine and eggs are at the top of list because we really can’t get access to breast milk alright so now we have meat fish poultry 32 percent okay so that’s even lower so you could imagine how much waste is occurring when you consume meat and fish so if we take 25 grams okay and then we take 32 percent of that which comes out to roughly a little more than 7 grams okay so now we’re getting with the actual amount of protein that’s turning in the body tissue 7 grams so the RDAs are very confusing because are they talking about actual absorption or are they talking about turning in the body tissue it’s almost impossible to find this information I have not found it ok all I know is that out of the steak you’re only getting like 7 grams okay which is a very small amount now you might be thinking well I’ll just eat more protein yes okay you could do that but realize with that extra protein comes more waste and comes more product as fuel okay so it can turn into sugar so you have that aspect I’m not saying it’s gonna be a big problem for blood sugars but I’m just saying that you’re not getting as much as you think turning in the body tissue then when we get into dairy like cheese or way you’re only getting 17 percent of that turning in the body tissue it’s even less egg whites without the yolk look at that that’s actually 16% so just goes to show you how important it is to consume protein in its whole form with fat you do not want to consume lean protein as in way you want to do natural the whole package the fat and the protein same time look at soy 17% so the egg whites and soy are very low on the list so you could imagine if this was soy and you’d take 17 percent of that so it’s just a fraction spirulina is only 6% not very much now in a recent video I did I talked about actually taking essential amino acids in addition to your own protein and the reason I like that is that you can give you a 99% effect I’m turning into body tissue with only a 1% waist so presently I’m doing that to enhance my protein amounts ok so let’s look at the next slide and this has to do with the other variables that influence your proteins number one absorption this is why it’s very difficult to determine how much protein an average person needs I’m gonna give you some ideas in a bit but let’s first talk about some of the other barriers you’re gonna run into number one insulin resistance most people have a problem with this they’re not able to absorb the amino acids because they’re they have insulin resistance but as you start getting in Quito and Amana fasting that improves so you’re absorbing more amino acids now the other problem with that is that you’re not consuming as much carbohydrates which means your insulin is also going lower it’s becoming more effective but it’s going lower and insulin is an anabolic hormone so it actually helps you make protein so with some people especially if they’re exercising we may want to keep their carbs at 50 grams instead of 20 ok which will actually give them a little more insulin to keep up with the activity but people that are not exercising will do much better at a smaller amount let’s say 20 grams because first of all they’re not going to need as much protein if we keep the carbs low they’ll do fine with the small amount of insulin so it really there’s just a lot of things going on here so we have insulin resistance we have the amount of stomach acid that person has most everyone over the age of 50 especially when they get the 60 70 and 80 they start losing your stomach acid now they can’t even break down the protein at the stomach level so they’re gonna nearly always be protein deficient and it shows up in a loss of collagen poor joint function fatigue and sagging skin now if the person has a problem with their pancreas let’s say they’re diabetic and their pancreas is exhausted because the pancreas makes insulin and other hormones but it also makes enzymes so if the pancreas is exhausted you’re not going to produce the enzymes to break down protein as well so the combination of the enzymes in the stomach and the acid and then the enzymes and the pancreas all help in the breakdown of protein so this could be a deficiency just with that this is why a lot of people do better when they take enzymes okay bacterias let’s say your friendly bacteria is not there because you took antibiotics or you’ve eaten a lot of GMO foods which destroy the microbes that alone can interfere with the absorption of protein right there and by the way bacteria help you make amino acids and proteins ok gut function so if you had gastric bypass where we have some surgery that’s going to greatly influence your ability to absorb protein – if you had celiac where your little absorptive villi are now gone you’re not going to absorb protein or nutrients as much so the gut function is very important if you have inflammation your gut that’s also going to stop the absorption of protein okay so then we have of course surgery I just mentioned that with the gastric bypass or let’s say you had some surgery in your colon that’s going to influence your absorption then we have the quality of protein okay I’m talking about this right here these the type of protein and of course the grass-fed or the organic so the quality of protein is very very important and then the quantity of protein like how much is too much and then you get the exercise the more you exercise the more protein you can in need okay so you need a little bit more if you if you’re an athlete and then you as you age you lose your stomach acid so you do need a little more protein to compensate for all the things that are going on as you age and I think a lot of people as they get older our protein deficient and they would greatly benefit from an amino acid product because these amino acids are already broken down they’re not in the protein form so they’re very easy to absorb okay illness all right if you have some type of chronic degenerative disease or illness you’re gonna need more amino acids so this could increase the requirement as well also the liver function if you have a fatty liver cirrhosis hepatitis all of those conditions are going to inhibit your ability to absorb protein so the more damage you have delivered on the kidney is going to increase the need the problem is the more approaching you consume the more waste you’re gonna have and if your kidneys or a liver are damaged you’re gonna overload the body with too much waste so it’s kind of a catch-22 that would be a good example of taking an amino acid product to supplement with so now the question is what quantity should you consume okay so I recommend instead of 0.8 you do 0.9 or 1.0 or maybe even 1.1 grams of protein per kilogram of weight that way at least you’re gonna cover some of these other problems that might come up and also if you keep the quality of protein high the need of protein won’t be as high all right hope that didn’t confuse you even more stay tuned for some more videos on this because there’s a lot more to talk about but thanks for watching oh one last thing because someone’s gonna ask this what you can do if you’re not sure about kilograms is you take your weight okay in pounds okay so I’m 185 and you divide by 2 point 2 to get the kilograms okay so you take the kilograms and then you times 1.0 this is the amount of protein you’re gonna need times 1.0 to get the amount of protein that you need in grams okay so just take your weight divided by 2.2 to get your kilograms so now you can multiply it times the amount of protein now this could be 0.9 or you know 1.1 but I would just to make it easy he can start right here and then comes a question how do you really know you’re getting the right amount of protein you’re gonna have to test it out you’re gonna have to eat a little bit more or a little less and see how you feel how do your joints feel how does your energy feel that’s probably gonna be the best thing all right now we’re officially done with the video

In this video, we’re going to cover protein and muscle loss. How much dietary protein do you need to avoid muscle loss?
RDA – the recommended dietary allowance for protein is .8g of protein per kg or .36 times your pounds. For example, I weigh 185, so I would do .36 times 185, which is 67g of protein I should have per day.
However, there are many problems with the above recommendation.
It might be shocking, but a small portion of the protein you eat actually turns into muscle or body tissue. For example, 100g (or 3 oz) of steak only provides 25g of actual protein.
There are many variables that play into protein and muscle loss prevention:
• Absorption in the gut (insulin resistance, stomach acid, enzymes, bacteria, gut function, inflammation, surgery)
• Quality of protein
• Quantity of protein
• Liver function
If someone exercises intensely, that could affect the amount of protein they need. But the quality of protein is also important—especially since certain proteins do not turn into body tissue at any significant level.
Instead of .8g of protein per kg of weight, I recommend you do .9 to 1.1g. Also, if you keep the quality of protein high, the need for protein won’t be as high.
You can take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2.2 to get the kilograms, and then you can take the kilograms and multiply the amount of protein you need (.9 to 1.1) to get the amount of protein you need in grams.
You may have to eat a little more or a little less protein and see how you feel to determine if you’re getting the right amount.
Taking essential amino acids in addition to your protein can give you a 99% effect of turning into body tissue.

More specifically, you want help with Protein Needs for Women | How Much Protein?
what’s awesome is that women have a pretty miraculous ability to utilize protein even somewhat more effectively than men people think it’s the other way around people think that men can just eat this protein it naturally just gets synthesized in the muscle and women have to eat a bunch more not really the case you see men just have more of the specific hormones that allow them to utilize that protein in a specific way whereas women are actually in a lot of ways more efficient at sparing protein however it’s very very very important that women focus on the quality of protein probably even more so than men I’m not saying that men shouldn’t focus on the quality but women because their bodies are efficient at utilizing it probably need to pay some extra attention to that you see women create one-tenth the amount of testosterone as men do which means that metabolically their body utilizes that protein a little bit better what’s interesting is that studies have shown that women oxidize less protein while exercising what that means is that when a woman is working out they’re actually breaking down less protein than a man is meaning their body is sparing more of that protein now to make matters better when we look at fasting studies we actually find that women burn less protein during a fast than men now that contradicts a lot of what people would think about fasting people always say that women shouldn’t fast as long that’s usually a reproductive thing when it comes down to the metabolic side of things women are better at fascinating because their bodies don’t catabolized they don’t break down as much muscle case in point is that women hold on to their muscle better they hold on to protein better their bodies are better at utilizing it so let’s talk about why the quality is important but also how much protein at the end of the day women really should be getting hey we’ve got new videos coming out all the time by the way almost every single day at 7:30 a.m. Pacific time but mainly on Tuesdays Fridays and Sundays please do yourself and me a favor by hitting that red subscribe button and then hit that funky little Bell icon just give it a girl slap and that’s gonna turn on notifications so you know whenever I go live or whenever I post a new video at random times all right let’s dive into this stuff real quick so protein utilization all comes down to an amino acid pool okay when we look at the big picture we break down proteins into 22 different amino acids and we essentially have a pool of amino acids that we pull from to create different things within the body we basically have limitless possibilities we can take two amino acids we can take four we can take 18 and we can create hormones and all these things so it’s amino acids that are the building blocks of everything in our bodies so in some ways that means that yeah if you get your protein in you ultimately have it go into a pool and your body utilizes what it needs to but there are some aminos that are more important there are some things that you should be focusing on getting quite frankly from animal sources because it’s just going to work out a little bit better long term to prevent these deficiencies one of the main things that I want to talk about is going to be thyroid okay women everywhere are concerned about their thyroid and rightfully so because generally speaking women have more issues with thyroids than men do okay and a lot of it comes down to autoimmune issues one of the primary amino acids that we get out of eating good quality protein is going to be glutamine okay now glutamine has powerful effects when it comes down to feeding the cells within our gut so we have living cells in our gut and if we feed them glutamine we feed them this specific amino acid they are healthier they are healed and you have less instance of a leaky gut that is not weird and marketing juju stuff okay a leaky gut is a real thing it’s just exaggerated a lot basically it means that inflammation from your gut gets into your body and triggers an autoimmune response most of the thyroid issues are autoimmune issues things like Hashimoto I know because my wife has Hashimoto and she suffered with low thyroid for a long time this slows down your metabolism it makes you gain weight it makes you hold water and a lot of it can be helped with getting good quality protein it the other thing that we have to look at is just creating thyroid in the first place fibroid hormones are created from tyrosine tyrosine gets converted into thyroglobulin and then thyroglobulin binds with iodine molecules to create t1 t2 t3 t4 all these things that essentially lead up to creating active thyroid hormone if we do not have enough tyrosine we do not get to create thyroid hormone and we do not rev up our metabolism the way that we want it to be revved up additionally we need zinc zinc is very difficult to come by now if you’re starting to do the math this would be a lot of different supplements that you’d have to take if you were trying to get all these things we’re already yet tyrosine were already at zinc or hard at all these different aminos okay we don’t want to have to just pop a bunch of pills zinc is going to be in its best form in meat sources generally okay so what zinc is going to do is zinc is going to bind to the actual thyroid receptors so without zinc the hypothalamus can never really initiate that thyroid activation if you want to call it that so these thyroid hormone receptors and requires zinc do you get activated okay let’s step away from the thyroid for a second and let’s talk about inflammation now inflammation sounds boring it always does it sounds very medical but it has a real practical application just about everything in your life now although it is true that protein is a part of the inflammatory process and too much protein can in some ways trigger some inflammation having a deficiency in protein or deficiency in specific amino acids is actually much worse as far as inflammation goes so too much protein does it make you inflamed too little protein is more likely to make you inflamed perfect example is touring touring chloramine is something that promotes apoptosis so what this basically means is touring chloramine encourages cells to die when they’re supposed to die which means that the white blood cells can come through and scavenge them easier it’s case that’s the natural immune process whereas if these cells are living longer than they’re supposed to then the white blood cells have to come in and attack them and this triggers inflammation so studies have shown that touring chloramine deficiencies are linked with arthritis flare-ups so too little protein can essentially cause arthritis to flare up triggering of course inflammation systemically so we have to be very very careful there now how this ties in with women if you look at minstrel cramps you look at that whole process and how that occurs the pain is coming from an influx of prostaglandin triggering cyclooxygenase enzyme to to elevate causing some pain okay so proper protein consumption can lessen the inflammation that could reduce the instance of those cramps which is again why it’s very very important to get high quality omega-3 meats whenever you can okay Omega 6 is trigger an increase in prostaglandin that is sort of the if you look at the inflammation hierarchy that’s up towards the top okay that trickles down and causes inflammation throughout the entire body that’s water retention that’s face puffiness that’s joint pain and that’s menstrual cramps ace you do not want to be eating just normal like low quality meat eat a lot of good quality fatty fish eat sardines get good quality grass-fed grass-finished meat whenever you can because it is going to be more important for you and it is going to make it so you have less in the way of ultimately menstrual pain but let’s go ahead and talk about the big reason the hormonal reason why women need to be paying attention to the quality of meat okay when we look at traditional feedlot beef it is pretty scary the amount of hormones they give them now there’s six main steroid hormones that are given and these are ones that affect men but they really affect women because they’re not supposed to be having this we’re talking about testosterone we’re talking about estradiol we’re talking about progesterone and then we have some synthetic hormones that are given like trimble and acetate we’ve got Zarin all and we’ve got progestin so these different things cause chaos within the body estradiol alone is not going to be good for a female right most of the time when women have issues it’s an estrogen dominance issue especially pre menopausal women estrogen dominance is going to lead to a bunch of toxic fat accumulation within the body that only kick-starts a vicious cycle of more estrogen dominance and more fat accumulation and just a lot of just discomfort and pain and irritability okay that’s why you have to be extra careful so when we look at Zarin all specifically which is hormone that’s given to cows a lot is Erin all mimics estrogen within the body and Zarin all has been linked to growing breast cancer tissue so a direct line item correlation with estrogen and also with breast cancer now I’m not making this an anticancer video or anything like that it’s not the goal here the goal is to talk about estrogen and how this is definitely not good for you as a woman okay so you want to be getting the good quality grass-fed grass-finished me now I will say if you are interested if you do eat grass-fed grass-finished meat there is a link down below in the description okay I talk about them all the time so it’s not just a specific pitch or anything like that but butcher box has grass-fed grass-finished high quality meat that’s cheaper than the grocery store and it gets delivered right to your doorstep and because they partner with me on my channel there is a special discount that you’re not gonna see anywhere else you’re gonna get it cheaper than anywhere else so after you watch this video if you want to give them a try check about the special offer that is down below right in the description butcher box literally has saved me so much money by not having to go to the grocery store all the time and not having to spend an arm and a leg on low quality meat let’s talk really quick again about how omega sixes and omega-3s are working within your body really quick specifically for women okay so women Omega threes are going to make it so that protein synthesis happens more efficiently you are already in a great state where your body is oxidizing less protein meaning you’re burning less but Omega 3 is increased protein synthesis so that means because you don’t have the hormones working for you like men do you need as much in the way of protein synthesis as you can Omega threes increased protein synthesis so you have good quality meat or good quality you know line-caught fish that’s high omega 3 you’re going to get more protein synthesis out of it simply by having the presence of the Omega threes plus it’s a less inflammatory system that your body can have just a streamline approach okay so that’s very important and I do want to touch on hair skin and nails because everyone falls victim to the fact that it’s just collagen that builds hair skin and nails collagen is important ok collagen is the scaffolding that’s the best way to describe it collagen is the scaffolding but what about the meat and potatoes for lack of a better term right like we have a skyscraper you have all the rebar you have the scaffolding you have the structure but what about the actual building what about everything inside of it well that’s all the protein that’s all the amino acids so we need the collagen to give ourselves structure but what good is structure without actually having the meat and bones of it right so when we look at nails people always think that calcium builds nails they always think that’s all about collagen collagen will give you the structure but then you need the proteins ok mean like the cysteine and you need them a theanine to actually build the quality nails ok and then we need lysine to actually have healthy hair so it comes down to eating overall protein not just getting collagen and so if you are on a low-carb diet I don’t want you to fall victim to just consuming collagen protein I find way too many people doing that in fact I have to say like even myself and my wife for a while we’re just leaning on collagen and then we realized wait a minute this is not just the trick it’s a good supplement to have in addition to but it’s the protein overall that makes your hair grow and makes everything the way that you want it all the sort of beauty proteins if you want to call them that and then I want to end on another important thing for those of you that are interested in it it’s not about the calcium with the bones okay it’s about protein okay the osteoporosis Journal proposed studies that show that protein is just as important as the calcium and if we have high degrees of inflammation because we’re deficient in protein then calcium doesn’t get into the bone the way that it should it stays in the arteries which causes an issue so for general health for overall fitness this is what we want to be paying attention to now I promised you some numbers it’s been shown that women don’t need as much so whereas men it’s recommended 0.8 grams per pound of body weight that you desire to weigh for women you could probably get away with like 0.5 0.6 however you’re gonna spend a tiny bit more money because you’re gonna go for the really high quality meat whenever you can but that’s okay you don’t have to consume as much because your body’s not burning as much so anyhow I hope that this gives you a good breakdown and gives you some justification to go to town on that protein because it doesn’t get converted as fat it gets converted to muscle honestly as always keep it locked in and I’ll see you in the next video

Protein Needs for Women | How Much Protein – Thomas DeLauer
Skin, Hair & Nails
When protein is eaten, your digestive processes break it down into amino acids, which pass into the blood and are carried throughout the body.
Your cells can then select the amino acids they need for the construction of new body tissue, antibodies, hormones, enzymes, and blood cells.
There are 22 different amino acids, each of which has its own characteristics
In various combinations, all of these amino acids are capable of forming an almost limitless variety of proteins, each serving its own purpose.
Nails are made of protein, not calcium as some think. A protein deficiency can be marked by split, extremely thin nails. Nails that fail to grow quickly lack protein.
L-cysteine and L-methionine are the sulfur amino acids that form “keratin,” which is the protein structure of hair
L-lysine, mainly present in the inner part of the hair root is responsible for hair shape and volume.
Protein also contains two amino acids, namely L-glycine and L-proline, that support the body’s production of collagen
Joints & Bones
Especially important for women, who are at high risk of osteoporosis after menopause
It’s estimated that 80 percent of the 10 million Americans with osteoporosis are women. Women tend to have smaller, lighter bones than men.
This makes women more susceptible to osteoporosis as there is less mass, and menopause has a greater effect on their bones.
Plus, after menopause the body produces less estrogen and progesterone – two common female hormones that help keep bones strong
Amino acids contribute to the development of protein within the body and are vital in promoting wound repair and encouraging healthy tissue in muscles, bones
Aminos work along synergistic pathways to decrease inflammation and promote the body’s natural synthesis and maintenance of joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons, it protects, prevents and helps in the repair of musculoskeletal injuries and inflammation, regardless of the cause
Review – Osteoporosis International
The review, published in Osteoporosis International, found that a protein-rich diet, provided there is adequate calcium intake, is in fact beneficial for adult bone health
It also found no evidence that acid load due to higher dietary protein intakes, whether of animal or vegetable origin, is damaging to bone health
The key findings of the extensive literature review include:
Hip fracture risk is modestly decreased with higher dietary protein intakes, provided calcium intakes are adequate
Bone mineral density (BMD), which is an important determinant of bone strength, appears to be positively associated with dietary protein intakes
Protein and calcium combined in dairy products have beneficial effects on calciotropic hormones, bone turnover markers and BMD.
The benefit of dietary proteins on bone outcomes seems to require adequate calcium intakes
There appears to be no direct evidence of osteoporosis progression, fragility fractures or altered bone strength with the acid load originating from a balanced diet.
Quality of Meat
Today, there are six anabolic steroids given, in various combinations, to nearly all animals entering conventional beef feedlots in the U.S:
Three natural steroids (estradiol, testosterone, and progesterone), and
Three synthetic hormones (the estrogen compound zeranol, the androgen trenbolone acetate, and progestin melengestrol acetate).
In vitro, zeranol stimulates growth and replication of human breast tumor cells – acts as a mycoestrogen (endocrine disruptor)
Many women endure abdominal discomfort and cramps every month, a condition known in medical terms as dysmenorrhea
They discovered that omega-3 fatty acids inhibit an enzyme called cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which produces the prostaglandin hormones that spark inflammation
During your menstrual period, your uterus contracts to help expel its lining. Hormonelike substances (prostaglandins) involved in pain and inflammation trigger the uterine muscle contractions
Menstrual cramps are caused by strong contractions of the uterus triggered by prostaglandins

Protein Synthesis: How Much Protein You REALLY Need: Thomas DeLauer
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Protein Synthesis: How Much Protein You REALLY Need: Thomas DeLauer?
are you consuming too much protein let’s break it down all right because a lot of times people lead us to believe that we need to be consuming these massive amounts of protein especially if we’re dieting and especially if we’re training really hard and we’re trying to build muscle or we’re trying to stay lean okay I have to give some credit where credit’s do I did this video for six-pack ABS calm a few weeks ago and ended up being a huge hit and I wanted to articulate it in a different way for my subscriber base and for my channel but I’m going to go down the same tab is what I kind of explained there so what we have to look at when we are actually consuming protein what ends up happening within our body you see we increase something called our nitrogen balance you see all the nutrients that we consume proteins fats and carbs they all contain oxygen hydrogen and carbon but protein is the only one that contains nitrogen therefore that makes it very easy to monitor makes it very easy for us to know when we have too much or too little because it’s unique to all other nutrients so what we have to look at is if we have enough nitrogen in the body that means we have enough protein in our body to sustain muscle mass and potentially even grow if we have a negative nitrogen balance it ends up meaning that we have too little protein and we’re going to start breaking down tissues that our body can survive if we have equal levels it means that our body is a nice balance where we’re not going to gain or we’re not going to lose and we’re just going to maintain now there’s ways that you can measure that with nitrogen test strips and all this stuff but we really don’t even need to go down that path so one of the bunks on the common fitness myths particularly the one that says we need to be consuming at least one gram per pound of body weight when it comes to protein well couldn’t be further from the truth let’s break it down with some research so the first study that I want to reference is one that was a four-week study this study took regular people and had them consume 0.61 grams of protein per pound of body weight and another group consumed 1.19 grams per pound of body weight they had them start working out they had them take care of their health and they have them start living that overall lifestyle to try to put on some muscle and burn some fat but what they found is that there was actually no difference in body composition or strength between the two groups absolutely no difference for those that barely consume protein over half a gram per pound of bodyweight versus those that were consuming exorbitant amount at 1.19 right there that’s enough to lead me to believe that that might be the way that we should go back even the author was being a little bit conservative when you look at it said let’s just err on the side of caution say between 0.75 and 0.8 grams per pound of body weight but some of you are probably thinking well that’s only a month what about longer term is eventually doesn’t it take time for the body to start breaking down tissue well kind of reference another study so this study took a look at a little bit different this study looked at a slightly different number they looked at 0.7 7 grams per pound of body weight versus one gram per pound of body weight in more conditioned athletes over a three month period of time well guess what no change in body composition no change in strength and guess what not even a hint of a change in hormonal state meaning they didn’t change out their hormones things didn’t start to shift they weren’t even going down the trajectory of losing muscle only burning some fat later on down the line so now let’s take a look at it ok you may be thinking but what if I train really really hard I’m not a normal fitness person I’m someone that’s really working hard it’s been in an hour and a half in the gym six seven days a week well there’s a study for that one too so let me throw it at you this study took a look at high performance athletes that were training looking like a bodybuilder style or strength training style just that 90 minutes per day 6 days per week they still found that there was a minimal return of anything over 0.82 grams per pound of body weight and that’s people that are really working hard so what does this really mean though I mean ok now we know we can assume less protein but what about when it comes to ketosis so what about when it comes to some of these other things well the cool thing is if you have too much protein it kicks you out of ketosis anyway so let’s take a look at what you can do now by being able to reduce your protein it increases your fat to protein ratio meaning you’re actually better able to function in ketosis and feel better but what if you’re not in ketosis well then it’s just good to moderate your protein level just to take care of your health what ends up happening if we consume a lot of protein it’s actually really hard on the kidneys contrary to what the fitness community will tell you they want to believe what they want to believe but the studies don’t lie there was one British study that took a look at those that consumed an additional amount of protein over baseline what they did if they took people that were eating right at the cap of what you should eat in the way of protein and all they did it added five ounces of fish on top of that okay so they said we’re going to add five ounces of fish above what the baseline top level protein is well by consuming just that extra five ounces of protein increase their risk of kidney problems by two hundred and fifty percent alright that’s pretty straight up now I’m not saying that don’t eat a lot of protein but we’re looking at taking care of our kidneys there’s a big effect you see proteins a diuretic so it can actually cause us to drop some water weight which can be good but it also causes our blood volume to shrink down and when that happens it ends up making our blood more viscous which can increase our blood pressure and can end up causing a lot of other issues and be hard on the kidneys now when we look at how the kidneys actually function they look at something called blood urea nitrogen blood urea nitrogen is an indicator of dehydration in the kidneys but also an indicator of how you might develop kidney stones I know you might not be thinking about that right now maybe you’re young maybe you’re just interested in wondering how much protein you should consume but the reality is there if you want to be doing this for a long time you don’t want to be having the strain on your kidneys and let me drop another study on you simply because I’m Chuck full of it with this one it’s quite frankly when I really think about it I get kind of set up with the fitness industry forcing it down our throats that we need tons of protein just to feed the supplement company so that you can buy more protein and make all these people fat and happy okay rant over alright let’s look at this actual study what this one looked at was a group of athletes they took three different athletes all three 150 pounds very very athletic endurance based athletes and what they did is they gave them different groups of protein mats they gave one person 68 grams they gave another person 123 grams they gave another person 246 grams and then they measured their blood urea nitrogen levels what they found at the ANU study is no surprise the higher the protein the higher the levels of blood urea nitrogen indicating higher levels of dehydration and higher risk for kidney disease and higher risk for kidney stones there you have it point blank multiple studies that show the excess protein is not the way to go save some money eat smaller amounts of protein eat organic protein when you can because you don’t need to be buying that cheap Walmart chicken that is not even really chicken it’s alien stuff so as always keep it locked in here in my channel and if you like these kind of videos that are debunking fitness myths make sure you let me know but also go take a look at six-pack ABS calm and the six-pack ABS Channel because I’m having to be bringing a lot of other content in different directions over there I will see you in the next video

Protein Synthesis: How Much Protein You REALLY Need: Thomas DeLauer
What is a nitrogen balance, and, how can it affect your body?
In order to gain muscle, all you need to do is have a positive nitrogen balance
Carbohydrates, protein and fats contain oxygen, carbon and hydrogen molecules. Protein, however, is the only macronutrient, which contains the nitrogen molecule.
Around 90% of nitrogen is lost through the urine, so, the most common and accurate way to assess nitrogen balance is to take a nitrogen test, then subtract the amount of nitrogen lost through the urine from the amount of nitrogen (protein) you take in through your diet in a 24-hour period.
As long as the level of nitrogen taken in exceeds the amount being lost, then the nitrogen balance is positive.
This means you have sufficient protein in your system to enable anabolism (muscle growth).
If you are losing more protein through urine than you are taking in, you are in a negative nitrogen balance, and only catabolism (muscle wastage) can result.
If all is equal, the best you can do is maintain muscle. (1)
Nitrogen balance compares the amount of nitrogen coming into the body (from dietary protein) to the amount being lost.
If you’re consuming more than you’re losing, you’re in positive nitrogen balance – gaining muscle
If you’re losing more than you’re consuming, you’re in negative nitrogen balance – losing muscle
If you’re consuming the same amount of nitrogen that you’re losing, you’re in equilibrium – maintaining muscle
Studies have shown that you actually don’t need to consume an exorbitant amount of protein in order to have a positive nitrogen balance
So, how much protein do you really need?
Many people believe that at least 1 g of protein/lb bodyweight is necessary to retain and put on muscle; however, studies have shown that much less than 1 gram/lb bodyweight is necessary
Many review papers have concluded 0.82g/lb is the upper limit at which protein intake benefits body composition
However, one study found no differences in muscle mass or strength gains in bodybuilders consuming either 0.61g/lb or 1.19g/lb over a 4-week period.
Based on nitrogen balance data, the authors recommended 0.75g/lb .
Another study found no differences in body composition, strength or resting hormonal concentrations in strength athletes consuming either 0.77g/lb or 0.91g/lb over a 3 month period.
If you train hard and/or are cutting
If you still think you need more than 0.82g/lb because you think you train harder than these test subjects, you don’t. Lemon (1992) studied bodybuilders training 1.5 hours per day, 6 days per week and still concluded 0.75g/lb is the highest intake at which body composition benefits could occur.
And lastly, one study looked at cutting weightlifters and they still found 0.73g/lb was sufficient to maintain lean body mass. (2)
Excess Protein Side Effects
When people eat too much protein, they take in more nitrogen than they need. This places a strain on the kidneys, which must expel the extra nitrogen through urine.
People with kidney disease are encouraged to eat low-protein diets. Such a diet reduces the excess levels of nitrogen and can also help prevent kidney disease.
Osteoporosis and Kidney Stones
Diets that are rich in animal protein cause people to excrete more calcium than normal through their kidneys and increase the risk of osteoporosis.
Countries with lower-protein diets have lower rates of osteoporosis and hip fractures.
Increased calcium excretion increases risk for kidney stones. Researchers in England found that when people added about 5 ounces of fish (about 34 grams of protein) to a normal diet, the risk of forming urinary tract stones increased by as much as 250 percent (3)
