Is a 90% protein diet safe?

My friend is going to eat 90% protein and I want her to be safe.

I wouldn't say so, not over any period of time at least. It can be bad for your kidneys. If she is trying to lose weight she should really eat fibre too as that will pass through taking fats with it.

no. there always has to be a balance. proteins are building blocks but carbrohydrates are needed for energy. also protein is constipating without fiber included. i am not endorsing but i use protein products by Nitro-Tech. the suppliments are not replacements for a balanced diet. i simply need more than balance

It is a great way to lose weight by lowering your carbs, but there are some side effects that can happen. If it is not lean protein your cholesteral levels can rise. Also, a high protein diet can lead some people to get gout attacks and even kindney stones. It is best to have a well rounded diet.

This is STRONGLY discouraged! Most nutritionist will suggest a 60 percent protein at the higest, with 20 percent healthy fats and 20 percent healthy carbs. Lack of carbs can cause damage to short and long term memory. Lack of fats can cause metabolism and chemicals to be unbalanced.

A 90% diet in protein in not safe. A body needs fruits, vegetables and dairy to function properly. A diet high in protein is good for someone who exercises but it should not be the only type of vitamin intake.

The key to healthy eating is a low-fat, balanced diet, that includes whole grains, lean meats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. An excessive amount of protein is not a good choice.
