    Mainly, high protein diets create acidity in the blood. They need to be balanced with lots of greens to keep the pH balance in an acceptable range.

    Get plenty of dark greens and antioxidant fruits in your diet, or supplement with a greens formula to take care of it.

    They are expensive and unnecessary. If you eat too much protein the body has to work to get rid of it somehow. Basically, you pee it out, and too much pure protein can damage the kidneys.
    Eat a couple servings of meat, beans, milk every day and that is all the protein you need. If you eat real food, you will feel full before you eat so much it will hurt you (except maybe for getting too fat).
    Occasional use, after a tough workout, is fine. Trying to make it a big part of the diet is the problem.

    Protein itself is responsible for hundreds of functions in the body. It helps with muscle preservation, weight maintenance, cell regeneration, hair growth, immunity and healthy skin just to name a few things.

    It really is possible to get too much protein. Secondly, many give you gas, especially soy based supplements. Those using whey are often very high in sugar and can cause weight gain and problems for those with diabetes. Also, be careful of those containing creatine, since it has lots of nasty side effects.
