    Everything came back fine, but my urine had protein in it, I guess from taking in so much protein everyday (270g or so). My doctor said I shouldn't worry, but I should have it checked every 3 months.

    I'm thinking about seriously reducing my protein intake, I don't want to be setting myself up for kidney failure later in life.

    Why are you taking in 260g?

    If you are peeing out protein I would knock that down to about 200g's regardless of what you weigh.

    I was just following the rule of thumb of 1.5g protein for every 1 pound you weigh.

    1.5 - 2 lb per kg should be the upper limit of protein intake for most athletes.

    So thats rougly 1 g per lb.

    There are no kidney problems related to high protein intake, even though doctors/nutritionists go on a high-protein scaremongering.

    I would even say that it's perfect that there's protein in your urine. That means that you eat like 110% of what your body needs and that's better than not having protein in your urine because you consume 90% of what your body needs.

    there is no exact "rule of thumb". Go to one forum and they will say 1g per 1lbs, another forum will say 1.5g per 1lbs and another will say 2g per 1lbs. It all depends.

    However, if you are peeing out protein from intaking too much, you should probably cut back to 1g per lb...... That seems to be the most widely agreed upon "rule of thumb" anyways.

    If he wasn't peeing protein, that would mean that he's not eating enough of it to fulfill to his body's needs.

    Good advice, Besides you can drink your urine seven times before it becomes toxic.

    I'm not sure, but I think excessive anything can lead to other issues, like kidney stones and the like.

    I posted a research in which they say that protein intake doesn't lead to kidney problems unless you already have a problem.
    And what is an "excessive" protein intake ? Higher than the FDA recommendations ?
    As far as I know, humans were able to live even when they were hunters-gatherers. They didn't eat grains, cereals and so on, they mostly ate meat.
