I have a question. I was chatting with my boss (she's a strict vegetarian) about leaning up for competition season coming up (I'm a ballroom dancer) and she told me that the reason my mid section is thick is because I injest too much protein. I eat healthy, lots of veggies and fruits, lean meats, and I take protein shakes. I read that you should take your ideal weight in protein. She told me that the reason im so thick in the middle is because I take too much protein. I was wondering if that had any validity at all? She told me the best way to lose would be to adopt a vegetarian diet. I am a meat guy and for me that would be hard. So I was curious, is there such a thing as protein belly? am i taking too much? i do lots of cardio everyday and dance at high intensities for hours on end. any advice?
