I am 33 years old. Body weight 85 kg. Don't do exercise at all. I have a lean body. Can I take whey protein supplements? How much should I take daily? Does it affect my kidney health? What is the criteria for taking whey protein supplements?

Amount of protein intake can be decided by assessing other parameters like height weight bmi bmr. Too much protein in excess can definitely increase a work load on your kidneys. So it is always better to consult a professional before starting with whey protein so that protein from foods n from supplements is calculated in detailed n a balance is maintained. With protein supplement you need a detailed diet plan so that results are achieved. Consult for detailed diet plan. Thank you.
