It can be but you know too much of anything is not good. I personally eat about 170g-220g of protein a day for sports reasons; so lots of chicken, turkey, etc. I do balance it out about though with about 150g of carbs and about 70g fats. So far I've only noticed myself get better physically. If you feel like you are struggling to put on weight then there are weight gainers available to you. Despite a high metabolism you can gain weight, don't worry.

Protein and fat keep you full and going longer. Carbs make you hungry. Make sure you put some salad or veggies with all that nice meat.

It can be. Very high protein diet effects the kidneys particularly if you already have kidney issues or kidney problems run in your family.

Medically speaking there is no such thing as "too much protein" for normal, healthy individuals. There are recommendations for how much protein each person needs based on gender and age. But the USDA has not set a maximum protein amount. Why? Because protein is a safe, healthy nutrient....helps your hair grow, too.
