The Protein Myth

I’ve written a little on protein, how we only need 0.8 gm of protein per kilogram of body weight (weight in lbs. divided by 2.2 x 0.8), and that there are excellent non meat sources of protein.

But still, the most common response I get when I say I don’t eat meat is, “How do you get your protein”.  I have finally found a terrific response:

Did you know that the strongest animal in the world is vegetarian?

Enough said!

  1. Absolutely enough said….. There are so many ways to get protein into your diet without eating meat. 🙂

  2. very true, we need so little protein.

  3. We live in a meat culture. I for one, however, do not eat it. Not because of ethics, but because it clogs me up and just doesn’t make me feel good.

    Green lentils is my substitute.
