Alright, guys – put down that extra chicken breast! Thomas Delauer here on this week’s Science Take Over to go over saving you some money and time by cutting down on the protein consumption because we’re going to debunk the myth that you have to constantly be taking in protein.

0:30 – Protein contains Nitrogen. Nitrogen is only present in protein when you ingest it, therefore it’s easy to measure and see whether or not you are taking in enough or more than your body needs.

1:30 – Summary of how Nitrogen balance works.

1:58 – Let’s look at the science: You’ve been told you should be taking in 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight – that may be too much.

2:14 – 0.82 grams per pound of bodyweight is what studies have shown to be the upper tolerable level of protein you should be taking in.

2:31 – Protein intake can actually be less. Turns out less protein didn’t make any difference.

3:09 – Even bodybuilder can get away with just 0.6 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight and not burn up muscle.

3:47 – Too much protein just goes to waste

3:52 – Some of the things you should be concerned with: Kidney function and even cancer risk

4:42 – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16546481

5:42 – Focus on quality nutrients, not just protein
