10-31.43 Avoid eating excessive protein as this, too only adds sugar to the body.

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

230 Dietary protein is digested into amino acids. Excess amino acids cannot be stored so they are converted into glucose by the liver. Therefore, avoid eating excessive protein as this, too only adds sugar to the body. Protein shakes, protein bars, and protein powders should all be avoided. Instead focus on eating lots of vegetables and natural healthy fats. A moderate intake of protein is optimal.” [1]
