Hi, I am just wondering; are there really no side effects consuming protein shakes?
I have been drinking protein shakes on and off for 40 years and since I started in weight training 2 years ago - drink one every moring.
Protein is the item that builds and repairs muscle - now having too much will not harm you in any way - what will happen is if you have way too much then your body will just expell it as waste.
Can you get fat by drinking too much protein - as with anything that is eaten - your body only required so much to keep it going, if too much is ingested then it's turned into sugar, then stored as fat and eventually eliminated.
If you are not real active then only have what your body needs and this is done by how your muscles feel - if they feel kinda sore then you need more - if they are relaxed at end of day then your taking in right amount.
You have to be the judge of this.
Whey protein is a byproduct from the cheese-making process (separation of milk into curds and whey).
It is just another high quality source of protein like meat, fish, eggs etc.
In fact your probably less likely to experience any side-effects from it than the above (food poisoning etc.)
There are no side effects to taking a protein supplement.
Your body requires protein to rebuild or repair muscle tissue.
Protein supplements are safe and highly recommended even if you don't exercise and you feel you are not eating enough protein in your diet.
Consumption of protein shakes will not have any side effects as protein is a part of the normal diet and we all need protein in our diets to be healthy.
Generally, the daily dosage is 1 to 1.5 grams per kg of body weight. The upper limit is for those who work out extensively. There are no known side effects, but it is simply useless to take too much protein as your body cannot absorb it.

I hate to pop your balloon but there is a side effect and you need to be very careful about it. My son was 17 years old and he was lifting weights everyday after school and drinking the protein powder shakes twice a day. One day he came home and he was in terrible pain in his lower back, so bad that he bagan to cry and roll on the floor. I asked him the last time his bowels moved. He said a couple of days, why. I said. how much water are you drinking, he said mostly the shakes. I said you have just clogged your bowels up and now they won't move. I am going to give you somethings with a large amount of oil in it and I want you to drink it all at once. He did, time went by and his father came home, nothing happened yet. His father got very upset at me for not taking him to the hospital. So he took him to the hospital. The doctor gave him just another glass of the oil water, just like I did. Within an hour his bowels unclogged! Then they handed him the bill for over $500. So be very careful about how much of those drinks that you drink.
