I used to do higher than recommended protein believeing it would help make me feel fuller on less calories, but you must make sure your kidneys are fine, because i ended up with a bad kidney infection. For me, I wouldnt touch high protein again.

I don't know that I would say 1.5 grams per kg of body weight is high protein, yes more than the RDA, but not high. For me it comes out to 105 grams of protein a day vs. 56 for the RDA. A high protein diet would be more like 2.6 g of protein per kg.

Even though the kidneys do produce more protein while fighting a kidney infection, I am not sure if excess protein in a healthy individual causes the infection. Kidney infections are caused by bacteria, usually by an untreated UTI or bladder infection. If you have kidney disease, then a high protein diet would not be a great idea, but that is for kidney failure not infection. But, like i said this study talks about an increased protein intake, not a high protein intake.

Also, the .8 RDA is for people with a low activity level. Those that are moderately active should consume 1.1 per kg, and those who participate in vigorous activity should consume 1.4 per kg. So for me being that i am involved in vigorous activity, the 1.5 is close to what I should be eating anyway.

rrm, did your doctor say the high protein diet caused the kidney infection? If it wasn't somehting your doctor said, I would check with them before writing off protein.
