Understanding Proteins

by Harry
(Bellary, Karnataka, India)

What are the drawbacks of too much protein in the diet? What are its long term effects? How we can get instant energy without carbohydrates and without bulk food (carbohydrates)? How can we give enough work to all our digestive organs? Will they become inactive and waste away because of inactivity? Also, after the growing years are over, that is after attaining adulthood, will the release of growth hormone affect the body adversely?

Protein effects in the body
by: Steve

Hi Harry,

Great to hear from you and thanks for your questions.

With regards to having too much protein in your diet, in healthy people it simply gets converted into fat if it is eaten in excessive amounts (as does any of the macronutrients). In people with pre-existing liver and/ or kidney problems it may magnify these problems.

There are no long-terms problems with eating protein as far as I am aware. In fact, I would say that protein is an essential part of anyone's diet. The word 'protein' itself comes the Greek word, 'proteus', which means of primary importance.

If you want to have an increase in energy (vibrancy) I suggest eating normal, everyday foods regularly. If you feel tired often I suggest fixing your diet first. If you still feel tired your body may be deficient in a few vitamins and/ or minerals so a good quality multi-vitamin/ mineral supplement may be beneficial.

Also, regular exercise will increase your fitness level and this may have a positive impact on your energy levels as well.

I wouldn't be concerned about your digestive system not working enough or wasting away. If you follow a correct nutritional plan you should not have any problems with your digestive organs.

In adulthood growth hormone provides an enormous number of functions in order to keep us healthy and well, particularly when it comes to normal cell growth and replication. Of course, excessive production or use of growth hormone injections may cause health problems.

I hope this information helps Harry.

Regards,

Steve.
