    A friend just told me that your stomach can only handle like 25g of whey protein in half an hour, so anything more just gets turned into fatty acid. Trying to figure out if this is true.

    So he's saying that regardless of whether or not you are in caloric deficit, consuming more than 25g of whey in half an hour will make you fat. Thats totally logical:rolleyes:

    Yea, that's why I was asking here. I'm wondering if it's possible that it gets digested too fast to be processed. Which wouldn't have anything to do with a caloric deficit would it?

    Weight gain/weight loss has everything to do with caloric deficit

    yes its doing me good i mean... i broke my collar bone about a year and a half ago... and i just started lifting like 3 months ago... started at 115 repping and now i'm repping at 185... newb gains i know... but i struggled with 115... and whenever i work out i notice that if i take protein the day before i can do more reps... maybe its a mental thing as well too... depends how motivated you are as well. but i mean i take protein shakes 3 times a day at 46 grams a shake.

    Yea, I'm gonna be doin 3 shakes a day at like 36 grams/shake. I'm not changing my habits, because it's working. Just wondering if this makes any sense at all. I'm not necessarily talking about JUST making you fatter. Maybe just it not being used.

    i mean supposedly your body breaks down about 2/3s the amount of protein that you take in... and the rest is stored... so it doesnt hurt to take a lot of protein then again it depends really what you want to do.... :dunno:
