I have been using one of them and have been wonder- iing _ is it possible to get too i much protsin in your diet? How much protein would a person need to maintain health? i The product I have been using i contains 47 per cent protein. 41 iper cent carbohydrates, 6 per j cent moisture, 3.4 per cent fat, I and 2.o per cent fiber, 21 cal- ories per teaspoon (2SO calories I per 100 I I have been taking a total of J2 teaspoons a day in three glasses of milk (four teaspoons i per I'm 31 years old 5-foot j inches and my weight is 113 pounds. I've just been wonder- j ing of this may be too much protein or fat for me and if too much protein can be toxic i or harmful (like too much Vita- jnun A or So far I seem to get a lot of energy from this drink, which I1 need with two little children to care for. I would appreciate your comments on this matter. Dear Reader It's unlikely that you will be getting too much protein. If you needed to lose weight, then a large amount of excess protein might actually add to your calorie in- take and contribute to your weight problem. Most people don't realize that protein in ex- cess of what the body needs is simply converted to carbohy- drate and then stored as carbo- hydrate in the form of giycogen ''body starch) or as fat. One hundred grams of ordinary mixed protein is converted to 53 grams of carbohydrate by the body. The foods we eat consist pri- marily of carbon and hydro- gen, and they are formed in long carbon chains. Proteins are made up of amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins. The amino acids are carbon .chains attached to an ammonia group f hence the amino) which contains nitrogen. The liver simply strips off this ammonia group and what's left is a carbon chain which may not be greatly dis- similar from a carbohydrate j carbon chain or a fat carbon chain. The body is pretty clever; it can take "this ammonia group and transfer it to the carbon chain that comes from carbohy- drate or fat and form new ami- no acids it needs for building (new protein and body struc- tures. The body is able to manu- facture all the amino acids we need from mixed protein Of any type, except the eight or 10 es- sential amino acids. So individuals who eat large arhounts of protein, particularly if they are getting calories of other types as well in their diet. are merely adding excess cal- ories to the diet, which can in turn contribute to the problem of obesity. There is no danger of getting too much protein in the same sense that you can get. too j much vitamin A or vitamin D. i Individuals who have serious liver disease, and sometimes i kidney disease, may be placed on a protein restricted diet. But these are rare medical con- ditions and require constant supervision. So I don't think you need to worry about that problem. In summary, there Is nothing wrong with the protein powder that you are taking for your purposes. For many other pei- ple I would suggest that before they go overboard on using pro- tein powders that it be remem- bered that protein powders can be converted to carbohydrate, and a carbohydrate is a carbo- hydrate whether it comes from a protein, sugar, honey or flour.
