Can too much protein in diet cause weight gain. I eat 1000 cal. Diet and I have bee. Eating around 70 grams protien. I'm afriad ill gain weight?

Can too much protein in diet cause weight gain. I eat 1000 cal. Diet and I have bee. Eating around 70 grams protien. I'm afriad ill gain weight?

No: If you are really eating 1000 calories per day, every day, then you will lose weight, even if the calories are made up entirely of fat. 1000 calories per day is less than a normal human adult needs. Note that I am not suggesting that you eat a diet of 1000 calories per day of fat. ...Read more

I am doing heavy exercise and taking high protein diet since last 6mths. Now my serum creatinine is 1.8, could this be normal? I have no other symptom

Good for you!: Yes. It's usual for bodybuilders to have a serum creatinine up to 2.0. When I was lifting daily, mine ran 1.6 to 1.7. The current fad for interpreting creatinines and estimating gfr's out of context is unscientific and has caused complaints in the peer-reviewed literature from pathologists and nephrologists. Keep it up. ...Read more

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more

For what reasons should we only take 10 - 15 percent of protein from our diet?

For what reasons should we only take 10 - 15 percent of protein from our diet?

That's what we need: More than that can put undue stress on the kidney in an attempt to get rid of the extra protein. The 10-15% is all that is ncecessary for growth and maintenance of muscles, healthy tissue, cell repair and turnover. Protein and fat are not good sources of immediate energy, for that we need 65% of our diet from complex carbohydrates since the body runs on sugar-- glucose. ...Read more
