I'm bulking right now. My biggest concern is getting too much protein and the health effects with getting too much. However I don't want it to hinder my gains. I heard 80/10/10 is the healthiest diet.

Any research on diets and gaing muscle? I want to do it and not harm my body. Protein is acidic and can't get rid of excess however you need the protein as your muscles are being broken down. I was looking at bulking on an 80/10/10. Any advice? I don't know what to do.

If you're bulking I don't see why you would want to limit your protein. You're trying to put on mass and supplying protein to your muscles will help get your weight up. Keep your protein intake at around one gram per pound of body weight. Since you are bulking, you can up that intake to what weight you're bulking to, for example If I want to hit 190 lbs and I'm only around 180 now, I'd throw in ten grams of protein on top of what I'm eating now.
