In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question if can too much protein make you fat. There is a hormone called insulin which has several functions including conversion foods to fats and also prevents the release of fat. It is a fat-making hormone that prevents the body from losing weight and an excessive amounts of protein will trigger insulin.

Protein also triggers another hormone called glucagon which does the reverse of insulin. It helps the body burn fat. If you’re consuming lots of protein you are going to be triggering both of these hormones at the same time, you may not gain weight, but it can potentially prevent you from losing weight because this prevents the fat burning effect. It depends on what else you’re eating with that protein and also it depends on how often you’re consuming this protein.

The big problem with the excessive amounts of protein, consistently too frequently over a period of time is that you are going to overload the stomach and you need a certain amount of hydrochloric acid to break that down and you may get an excessive amounts of putrification, body odor, indigestion, tired after you eat and can potentially overload the kidney and liver by having too much nitrogen byproducts that can lead to more uric acid in the body, gout, and other body issues.
