Yes. Excess everything in your diet gets turned to fat.

The body uses a carb called glucose to power everything. All carbs are eventually broken down into glucose like molecules (except cellulose). If you aren't getting enough carbs in your diet then your liver starts making glucose from protein by a process called gluconeogensis. The excess glucose produced will then be turned into fat.

Long term high protein low carb diets will deprive your body of the nutrients it needs by converting all the nutrients into glucose.

Can protein shakes make you fat?

Yes, protein shakes can make you fat, as too much protein consumption can lead to a surplus in the body. This disrupts the balance in the "fuel mix" and you are less likely to use fat as a fuel because of excess protein. You can grow fat by eating too much protein because excess protein can lead to fat storage. If you are taking protein shakes you must account for the increased protein and decrease other dietary protein intake to avoid making fat.

When protein consumption is in excess of body needs and energy needs are met the excess amino acids are metabolized and the energy in the molecule is what?

Our bodies cannot store excess protein once it is consumed, so the excess amino acids are converted to carbon skeletons that are turned into glucose or fat and then stored as fat or metabolized for energy needs. **stored as glycogen & fat** jmata~

Does too much protein in your diet turn to fat?

No, unless you eat so much protein that you exceed your energy needs. Even then, our bodies prefer to burn the excess protein (because we cannot store it) and SAVE or SPARE the Calorie equivalent of fat from being burned---which results in the spared fat being "gained". That's one way we add to our body fat and gain some fat weight. Another way is to eat excess carbs (exceeding energy needs), and the pattern is the same as for protein because we have little carb storage either. But the fastest and easiest way to gain body fat is to eat fat --- exceed your energy needs with fat, and that excess fat, which is quickly tucked away in your body fat, simply stays there instead of being burned--instant gain.

Across the board though all of the three main macro nutrients can be converted by the liver for storage in fat cells.
