YES! – Plant proteins are best. And, they are complete proteins! I sure wish I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me “where do you get your protein?” I’d be rich! It baffles me that we were all so brain washed to believe that we needed fats like chicken, eggs, fish, beef pork and dairy to get protein. The marketers did their job all too well. The reality is that spinach is 51.8% protein, oatmeal, 14.3% protein, strawberries 8.4% protein. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein for the average adult is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. To find out your average individual need, simply perform the following calculation: Body weight (in pounds) x 0.36 = recommended protein intake (in grams). If you do calculate it out, you will see that your protein requirements are really quite low. If you are consuming enough calories, you you are consuming enough protein – even if you are living on junk food. Lack of protein is not your problem. The real problem is lack of fiber. A whole food plant-based lifestyle can help you reverse and prevent disease and lose weight.

Ranking protein from the healthiest to the least healthy
“Plant sources of protein look the best,” says Walter Willett, who chairs the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. “That includes nuts and beans, and even whole grains contribute some protein. Their fat profile is better than red meat’s, they have no cholesterol or heme iron, and they have essential nutrients and fiber. Red meat has no fiber. So when we put all of those things together, it’s not surprising that plant proteins are a healthier package.”
Here in the U.S., people eat more chicken, fist, beef and pork and consume more dairy than anywhere else. People are obsessed with protein. We spend the most money on healthcare. And, Americans are the fattest and sickest people living with preventable diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, many cancers, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel syndrome and many more. The problem is too much fat, salt and sugar from the “proteins” people are eating. You should be focused on the health giving whole grains, vegetables and fruit every day.
