too much protein?

Options
I've been going over the protein limit mfp set for me, is this going to effect my weight loss?

    Not at all. With weight loss, it comes down to calories. It is okay to go over your macros.

    Also, the MFP protein is quite low. Usually a good guideline .6g of protein per pound. This can be changed on your 'goals' page.

    No if you are staying within your calorie limit. The default mfp protein level is pretty low.

    Best to treat that number as a minimum rather than a maximum.

    What is it set to? There comes a point where your body doesn't ingest any nutrients from protein but I highly doubt you are reaching that point so I wouldn't worry
