      My nutritionist wants me to start a veggie pea protein supplement powder that contains 17 grams of pea protein. What is the protein limit per day that is allowed for protein intake? I realize that meat protein is bad, but I thought large amounts of all protein are bad.

      You need protein to be healthy. Excess protein is generally bad, and is probably a bit worse if you have gout than it would be for the general population. But 17g isn’t a huge amount, especially if your diet otherwise wouldn’t contain enough of the specific proteins found in peas.
      Bottom line: either you trust your nutritionist or you don’t.
