Consider the following scenarios:

Scenario 1:

  • 3000 kcal daily intake
  • 250g protein

Scenario 2:

  • 3000 kcal daily intake
  • 100g protein

Question:

Does the protein ratio affect how much fat can be gained (in case of calorie surplus)? This means that in diets with the same amount of calories the protein-carb-fat ratio affects the quantity of fat gained. I understand different foods have different thermic effects, but is there any logic correlation in the previous statement?

  • Given the recommended protein intake is 50g then even 100g is too much. That is hard on the kidneys. – paparazzo Jan 29 '17 at 17:51
  • @Paparazzi those were just hypothetical scenarios to better state the question – joao Jan 31 '17 at 22:59
  • SE is for real not hypothetical questions – paparazzo Feb 1 '17 at 0:32
  • @Paparazzi first the question is not hypothetical, it's quite concrete. second, your comment completely addresses another thing, which is a healthy protein daily intake. I was asking about macros ratios. Make it 10g to 50g of protein if it suits you better, but the question still stands. – joao Feb 1 '17 at 13:22
  • Stands unanswered. Yes something out of range will typically affect digestion. – paparazzo Feb 1 '17 at 13:30
