I think this is a myth.
But what is not a myth is that at any given time our body may only need so much of proteins for repairs and muscle buildings. So if we eat- drink a lot at one time - the excess may be used as simple calories- converted to blood sugar then stored as fat. Unless you body building - drinking a protein shake that has 50-70 gr of proteins per shake -may just be used by your body as calories. Stressing the kidneys in the process.

It's a complete myth. As Hala said, only so much within a certain time-frame can be used to build muscle -- that's where the myth came from, in the bodybuilding world. But for our purposes there is no time limit on protein.

I do, unless it's a ****ty protein source. For example, casein or collagen is basically worthless for us.
Whey isolate is my go-to, with concentrate (I am not lactose intolerant) coming close behind. With either, I count all of it, even if it's over the arbitrary 30 g.
