Protein intake and the medical?


Lantern Swinger
I have my medical soon and on the letter it says to not take protein drinks for a week before. That's fine Ill stop them, but what about other sources or protein and generally eating a high protein diet? I've took in about 200 grams of protein/day for the last 3 years, average according to general daily guidelines is around 50 grams I believe. Obviously this is way higher than normal as I am weight training 5days/week, running and swimming twice as well as working 40 hours/week in a physical job. So is it cut down on protein completely or just protein supplements?
Basically, when you do the "piss in a tube test" and the foam on top is a foot deep, you will fail the test. Excess protein is dumped by the body in your piss.
A sign of kidney disease is "protein in the piss". So the medics will see protein in your piss and won't know whether you have a medical problem or you are trying to build chocolate muscles on a poorly balanced diet.
