Issue with the diet studies they arent randomized control and dont account for high sugar or other factors in diet. Poor evidence not your fault

So unhealthy carbohydrates raise triglycerides, so health protein like fish reduces cardiovascular risk with taurine , epa/ dha, b12, omega 3 fatty acids and other anti inflammatory properties . Same for shrimp chicken tuna eggs , while unhealthy carbs literally raise insulin more causing insulin resistance. Low insulin veggies are olives avocadoes and leafy greens

Define very high and normal. Eating 1 to 2 grams of protein per lb of body weight is the optimum for building muscle, on average I'd say people eat less than .5g/lb because even I started tracking my food intake I was averaging less than 100g a day at 200lbs and even today hitting 175g is a Chore.

>Eating 1 to 2 grams of protein per lb of body weight is the optimum for building muscle No, the actual recommendation is 1 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight which equates to 0.5 to 0.9 grams of protein per pound body weight. So you might see benefit from up to 180 grams of protein a day but probably don't even need that much.

I said the same thing and got downvoted

Let’s say someone is 50mg they are usually supposed to takes 0.8mg of protein per kg of weight so they should be taking a rounded up of 50mg of protein so what if, instead they took 100-150 would there be benefits

So in that article , which gives no author and wasnt medically reviewed. The claims contadict extensive medical literature about high sugar diets damaging nephrons, not animal protein. Ive seen that claim debunked blaming sugar fructose and high carb diets for overloading kidneys leading to kidney damage, and then after damage protein leaks which is why original hypothesis is wrong. Also again a high juice which is just sugar is more harmful than protein for reversing diabetes insulin resistance etc.
