Hi, I have a question concerning whey protein.
First of all, my doctor told me I am only allowed to have 60 grams of protein per day,
because of an issue dealing with my kidneys.
The thing is, I lift weights a lot, and in order to see results I HAVE to include protein in my diet.
So my question is, would it be ok for me to take more then 60 grams of WHEY protein?
Or is there no difference between whey protein and normal protein, in the way it will effect my kidneys?
You most definately should follow your doctor's recommendations. To live without proteins is dangerous whilst at the same time the proportions of proteins that we consume in the west are unnecessary big and can be a load if one has sensative kidneys. 60 grams per 24 hours is sufficient for the human body. In my work I have met several people that have become healthier once they have started eating nutritious food such as raw food, fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts and seeds. The overload of protein has a negative effect on the kidneys but to make sure speak to a nutritionist or a dietition.
