Seriously? High Protein candy bars and loaded cookie dough ice cream?

10% of energy from protein? Protein RDAs are the MINIMUM needed to prevent frank deficiencies, same as other nutrients, they are not an upper limit. Quoting retired dieticians and food companies doesnít convince me.

from IOF: "Although acid loading or a high protein diet is associated with increased urinary calcium excretion, which may be related to higher intestinal calcium absorption, higher protein intakes, whatever their origin (animal or vegetable), do not appear to be harmful for bone health. In fact, in the elderly, insufficient dietary protein intakes may be a more severe problem than protein excess [1]."
