    Are you actually drinking a gallon of milk and a whole chicken a day?

      The percentage isn't really relevant here. The point is that 260 g is more -- correction, far more -- than you need for body repair. You're only 140 lbs for goodness' sake, your lean mass probably less than 130.

      Effectively, you're using most of that for fuel. This is like trying to run your car on fiberglass and spray-paint instead of fuel. Well ... not quite, because metabolic flexibility being what it is you can do it. You'd just far better not.

      There are a number of reasons why you'd want to avoid overconsuming protein:
      Do you think eating too much protein could cause bloating/constipation and water retention ?
      I'm trying to lower my protein intake. Today was around 3100 kcal, 180g Proteins around 130g Carbs and the rest of it from fats.

      And Gadsie how many g of carbs are you getting ?
