Protein: Too Much Of A Good Thing?
 
 As athletes, we are constantly bombarded with the mantra "eat your protein!"…we go out of our way to ensure adequate intake, both preWO and PWO, to the tune of 1g/lb BW, as a generalization.  But can too much affect our performance?  Yes, and here's a couple of reasons why:
  1. Carbohydrate Displacement.  Protein has a very high satiety index, and if we overfeed protein, we won't be refueling with more efficient fuel sources, like starchy carbohydrates.
  2. Increased ammonia:  This is a byproduct of protein digestion, and through various mechanisms, both central and peripheral, can induce fatigue and decreased performance. http://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/4/11/1767  
So does this mean we eat low protein?  No—it's still essential for performance and recovery.  Just ensure you have the right fuel mix of all three macros: Pro, Carb, Fat
