Seems like everyone is obsessed with protein – especially when it comes to building muscle. The meat and dairy propaganda marketing machines have really hoodwinked us into thinking we have to eat and drink animal proteins.
A personal trainer at the gym last week started talking to me about the importance of eating vegetables and protein. I replied, “Protein? You’re talking about kale and oatmeal, right?” He of course started talking about chicken and fish. As we talked, I politely pointed out that protein is a nutrient – not a food group.
By the end of the conversation he asked if I would send him some articles to read. I happily complied but was concerned that I had overwhelmed him with research on plant-based protein and information on how little protein people actually need.
You can imagine my excitement when I received an email over the weekend from him asking if he could meet with me and if I would coach him on changing to a whole food plant-based lifestyle.
Plant Protein Shown to be Better than Animal Protein for Building Muscle
New research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that both plant-based protein and meat build muscle equally well however because plant-protein comes with less ‘baggage’ in the form of harmful components it’s the more beneficial protein source to use.
