PROTEIN AND FAT – relationship

The relationship between protein and fat

Probably everybody think that protein is building block of muscle tissue and fat building block fat, but proteins can act as grease under certain physiological conditions. The primary role of the protein is to provide the building blocks, or amino acid that is synthesized by the structural and functional proteins in the body. However, the amino acid from the muscle can also be converted into molecules to be used for energy if you are undereating. In contrast, the introduction of excess calories will cause that the additional amino acids are converted into the fat molecules.

Excessive amounts of protein can be converted into fat, especially if you eat too many calories. 2012T study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that people who eat more than 1,000 calories per day than allowed, received a similar amount of body fat regardless of how much protein they enter.
