Our expert says:
Thank you so much for your kind words - you made my day! What we need to keep in mind is that ANY food, including protein, if eaten in excess will cause weight gain. Also people gain weight when their daily energy intake exceeds their daily energy output. So let's say that Mr X eats lots of protein or drinks protein shakes all day and this food intake pushes his energy intake to about 3000 cal or 12600 kJ/day and he is totally inactive, then this protein would cause weight gain. Conversely, if Mr X only ate sufficient protein or drank sufficient protein shakes to provide about 2000 cal or 8400 kJ/day then he would probably start losing weight even if he is inactive.
Hope this helps
