Kidney problem?: With the information you provided, I do not think you have a problem with your kidneys. Creatinine is an indication of your kidney function and, just as important, is gives an estimation of your muscle mass. A high creatinine clearance may be seen with uncontrolled diabetes, which you do not have. Speak to the physician who ordered these tests on you for more information, he knows you best.

Can a high protein diet with exercise increase LiBiDo+erections and testosterone production?

Protein & Exercise: Are good things but not enough to boost libido and help w/erections. Please see your doc who will likely run hormone lab tests. Then you will know if your situation is more psychological or physical. Natural or pharmaceutical hormone replacement is an option as is stress management training. Peace and good health.

Does a high protein diet help with the recovery of tenden rebuilding due to injury like it would with muscle recovery?

Not necessarily: Protein can certainly assist the healing process, but a normal well balanced diet is still the best. Excess protein only leads to excessive caloric intake and weight gain. Vitamin c is helpful for tendon repair.

I am on a high protein diet, can I eat small portions of bread?

I am on a high protein diet, can I eat small portions of bread?

Protein and bread: Hi, in general, moderation goes a long way. (i know, the term "moderation" is so overused and hard to define. Still...). A high-protein diet combined with a small portions of bread can be a useful approach to managing weight. You might consider using breads that are lower in glycemic load, such as sprouted wheat (or "flourless") breads (available at trader joe's or ezekiel brand).

I'm on a high protein diet, is it okay to eat small portions of bread?

No and no: Generally this is for weight loss. The diet works either by making people so miserable that they don't eat, or loss of some muscle glycogen, or changing the cues for eating. All of these will be messed up by even small amounts of bread. Furthermore, the whole question implies trying to get out of eating less and exercising more and how to bail out on dieting.

Get a health coach.: This is true on all types of drastic, quick weight loss diets. The best would be to have a well rounded, healthy diet which will allow you to control your weight, maintain it and not cause a "yo-yo" effect on your body.

I'm trying to loose my baby belly, so should I go on a high protein diet?

I'm trying to loose my baby belly, so should I go on a high protein diet?

No fads: In my opinion, you're thinking about this wrong. Diets (short term caloric restrictions) do not result in weight loss that is maintained. Subtle but sustainable changes to your diet (what you eat every day) can have life-long results. Make subtle changes to what you eat to take in fewer calories per day and increase your activity to burn more. You should not shoot to loss more than 1 pound/week.

Sorry no: Sorry for the disappointment. I doubt a change in diet would hurt anything, but there's zero science to support it: it's all wishful thinking. Good luck.

No: Nutrition today is quite complex. Why? The food industry has made every form of artificial food whether it be protein, fat, or carbs; available to consumers. Try to eat fresh, natural-organic foods, usually a balance of 15-25 % protein, 15-25% fat, and 50-75 complex carb---fruits. And veggies not much breads, rice or starchy foods. Lots of water at least 2 liters a day.
