It scares me to hear people says things like this. Too much protein can do serious damage to your liver, so yes, taking too much IS a big deal.
To determine how many grams of protein you should eat daily divide your weight by two. The OP is just shy of 200 pounds, so he should ideally stay under 100g of protein daily. And, try to get your protein from real whole food whenever possible. Protein powders can be really sketchy as the protein sources are not usually the best quality. Be very careful of the quality of protein you buy.
That being said, if I'm doing a morning workout, I will down a half dose of protein and a small banana before leaving for the gym. It digests quickly and will keep you from feeling light headed during your workout. If I know I can't get to a good source of food after workout meal, I'll take a full shake within an hour after working out, but then make sure I get a meal shortly thereafter.
