Protein and amino acid requirements in human nutrition – World Health Organization Report http://www.who.int/nutrition/publications/nutrientrequirements/WHO_TRS_935/en/
There’s been a decent amount of research on high protein intakes and so far what we can say is that: In the context that you have healthy kidneys, liver and heart there’s no negative health effects from a higher protein intake in your diet.
Moreover, high protein diets don’t cause damage to kidneys, liver or heart in healthy individuals.
Latest research from Jose Antonio and his team has shown that over a year long period even going up to 3.3 grams per kg in daily protein intake is completely fine.
It’s great to have such a long study looking at active individuals and athletes as these are the populations that will most likely aim for a higher protein intake.
Sadly, there’s still a lot of myths out there and a lot of sources claiming that high protein diets are harmful for health. Individuals claiming that high protein diets are harmful for health often quote observational research and fall into the trap of a confirmation bias through weak correlations present in this research.
Claims that high protein diets cause damaging health effects are not supported by the current body of evidence looking at the randomized controlled trials we have available.
If you’re someone who has health issues related to kidneys and impaired renal function it’s a good idea to consult with a registered dietitian about your protein intake.
However, in the context that you’re a healthy individual following a healthy diet plan there’s no evidence suggesting that you should worry about increasing your protein intake.
As a general recommendation, anywhere in the range of 2-3 grams per kg of Fat Free Mass or about 1 – 1.2 grams per lbs of FFM in protein per day is a good target to aim at if you’re interested in maximizing muscle growth and lean muscle retention.
If you’re looking to get getting shredded one of the best sources for protein intake is the review by Eric Helms over at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24092765
Final note: If your goal is to build muscle it’s a good idea to base the majority of your protein intake on high quality sources rich in the amino acid leucine.
A good target to aim at is a minimum of 25-30 grams of high quality protein per serving which would yield about 2-3 grams of leucine.
For those on a plant-based diet a great source of leucine is powdered pea protein.

What’s up guys, I hate bad information and love making fun of shitty info on the internet. However I also love answering questions relating to health and fitness also. So send me questions and I’ll try and make a video about it.

When considering protein intake (not to mention any number of other topics), don’t just trust one source of information. What I mean is, look at the research, but don’t just take every protein study at face value, because so many of them contradict each other. As a scientist, I’ve learned how to interpret data, taking into account the physical state of the subjects (ie, trained versus untrained), the type of training program followed during the experiment, and a host of other important details and limitations in a given study.
In addition to the research, consider actual results you’ve experienced personally as well as results achieved by others. So many “experts” in this field won’t take any results seriously unless they’re published in peer-reviewed journals. Trust me, I like the journals. I subscribe to them, I’ve been published in them and I’ll continue to support them. But when I bump my personal protein intake from 1 gram per pound per day up to 1.5 grams per pound per day and see great results in size, strength and fat loss, I take that into account. And when I get the exact same feedback from hundreds of thousands of individuals bumping up their protein the same way and getting bigger, stronger and leaner as well, I’m sold.
In the case of high protein diets, specifically 1.5 grams per pound daily, the debate is over. Research proves it works, and so do the results we see every day by hard-training individuals following this recommendation.
Taking in 1.5 grams not only works better than 1 gram for building size, but it also helps burn more fat. Case closed.

What Are Good Sources of Protein?
A high protein, low carb diet is not for everybody and is by no means proven as the best way to lose weight. However, studies have suggested that for some people, this type of diet is an effective way to reduce fat and weight, particularly to kick start weight loss in those who are morbidly obese.
In this video I am going to share with you 7 high protein low carb foods to include in your diet
Tuna Economical, versatile and easily available, tuna is a classic low-carb, high-protein food. A 100g serving has no carbohydrates and 23g of protein. Use tuna on salads or as a topping for baked potatoes or open-faced sandwiches.
Tofu Eating it alone like cheese, it doesn’t taste that good, but when you add it to other diet it really makes your dish wonderful. Eating one slice of tofu will give you so much protein and is low in carb. Many people are turning towards it as a major diet. Vegetarian and non vegetarian will both love for it as it can be added to them easily.
Poultry Poultry, along with fish, is the leanest animal source of protein. To maximize the health benefits, focus on including low-fat poultry such as chicken breast and turkey in your diet, as other types of poultry such as duck and goose are much fattier–and more expensive. Skin your meat and eat white meat for the highest protein with lowest fat and carbohydrate count.
Shrimp can be your main ingredient of a healthy eating plan if you are careful about the manner that you enjoy it. These reports are for two ounces of prepared shrimp, either broiled, or grilled. Take small size of the shrimp as the larger size means more calories. Make sure when eating from outside, it’s not fried or coated in butter. Also, be careful not to eat with sauces that can boost the calorie content in your body. If you eat shrimp in a normal form like this, you will get all of the natural protein and no extra calorie.
Protein Powder: This protein powder could be mixed either with milk or in any drink. This will boost the protein content in the body. This powder is a necessity if you are planning to build lean muscles. This powder can be mixed with fruits or ice and consumed after a workout.
Flax Seeds: Flax Seed is rich in Omega-3 nutrients. It has high fat content. This can be added to soups or salads, once in a while. 2 Tablespoons of Flax Seeds includes 70calories and 3gms of Protein
Salmon Speaking of healthy fats, you can’t go wrong with eating salmon. In terms of the combination of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, making a meal out of this flavorful fish is always a good idea. Shoot to make salmon a part of your menu at least once a week.
Other high protein low carb foods include Low-fat yogurt, nuts, Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Beans, and eggs.
