World Vegetarian Day is today and one common question is what about the protein? The hypnosis for weight loss program Slender For Life™ and my book, Becoming Slender For Life provide you the weight loss hypnosis tools to make positive changes in your life.  You can lose weight and achieve other goals in your life with hypnotherapy.

Thanks to the North American Vegetarian Society October is Vegetarian Awareness month. A common question that is asked about a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle is “what about the protein?” Don’t you need protein?

Who do you know with a protein deficiency? Do you know anyone who has a disease, such as kwashiorkor, caused by a lack of protein? I don’t—and I don’t know that I ever have. The problem is excess protein. Sixty-five percent of the U.S. population is fat, and many have the diseases that come with being fat. Excess food is the problem—certainly not lack of protein.

It’s extremely difficult for anyone to become protein-deficient. You would have to give up eating all together. Practically all unrefined foods are loaded with proteins. Rice is 8 percent protein, oranges 8 percent, potatoes 11 percent and beans 26 percent. A 2.7-ounce tub of instant oatmeal contains 9 grams of protein. One-half cup of uncooked quinoa has 11 grams of protein. One medium-size banana and a 1.5-ounce box of raisins each have more than one gram of protein. It is impossible to develop a protein-deficient diet based on vegetables, beans, grains and fruits.

And in spite of the tales you’ve been told, vegetable proteins are complete proteins. All the essential and nonessential amino acids are represented in single unrefined starches such as rice, corn, wheat and potatoes in amounts in excess of every individual’s needs—even for endurance athletes or weight lifters.

Can’t imagine living without meat and dairy? It’s really quite easy with weight loss hypnosis. My book, Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set show you how you can change the way you eat and lose weight. With hypnosis for weight loss you can make positive changes in all areas of your life. Start eating healthy and discover how you can use hypnotherapy in your life.
