    Well that's not good then... I've been taking it with water, no dextrose.

    No take it with dextrose; whey in water alone with the presence of no carbohydrates/low glucose levels will force the body to convert half of the whey into carbohydrates.

    As for how much protein, you could search for more threads for further details and a few studies. All the results still lead to two sides, following the medically proven side of 1.4-1.7g/kg and the other side of a 20/50/30 split. It's complete personal choice for each individual. Protein has a thermogenic effect of about 5-10%, that's why the number ended at 30% or 25% with 20/65/25. By having a thermogenic effect, there is leeway before damage might occur, so why not consume 30%. Any excess, assuming your BMR is correct will be converted/oxidized into energy, which yes can be bad if your body becomes familiar with oxidizing protein into energy, consequently less and less might not be available to keep the positive nitrogen balance. A 20/50/30 split can also be positive because how do you know if all the protein you consume retains its biological value or even if it is converted into protein. How do we know were getting 24g or 22g or 15g or 7g of protein per a protein powder scoop that stats 24g per scoop? We don't, maybe it's better we consume a little extra for insurance. You said you've been having whey with only water; right there you've already been losing half of the protein.

    But once again, it’s personal choice. I just wanted to show a couple of ways of looking at the situation.

    Well I had it in water but I also ate some simple carbs with it. But I will try using a low intake of protein and work up to what is effective for me.
