Reasonable high-protein diet?

Here is my diet:

No snacks
Water/green tea taken regularly throughout the day

2 eggs + 80g grilled steak
60g tomato
40g oat bran (with a bit of milk)

200g grilled chicken breast
30g nuts
150g veg (often carrots, sometimes broccoli/asaragus)

100g grilled steak
30g nuts
40g oat bran (with a bit of milk)
150g veg (often carrots, sometimes broccoli/asaragus)

Is this a reasonable high-protein diet for rapid weight loss and muscle gain?

Re: Reasonable high-protein diet?

Well, you're pretty low on fruits and veggies there. Plus, half your calories are from fat!

You are getting about 150 grams of protein per day. Most nutritionists wouldn't recommend that, because protein can become toxic if you are getting more than about 1 gram per kilogram of body weight. (If you are very overweight, use your ideal weight rather than your current weight.) Protein overdose can cause kidney damage. If you absolutely insist on eating like that, drinking water can help the kidneys to process the overdose.

No one needs that much protein, no matter how much you want to build muscle.
