The purpose of this article is to briefly discuss our opinion of the type, amount, and sources of protein that enable the human body to achieve and maintain optimum health. We respectfully understand that discussions, opinions, and controversy relative to protein run the full gamut of views, but this is our position.

Protein and Strength: Many people erroneously believe that a diet consisting of flesh, particularly red meat is necessary in order to provide the body with an adequate amount of protein. Likewise, it’s also believed that there’s a direct correlation between protein, strength, and over-all conditioning which leads to protein rich diet plans. Today there’s an endless number of purported “health” products oriented around protein, e.g., drinks, diets, processed powders, and other concoctions. The common pitch for these products is that the purchaser will become stronger, have more endurance, and be healthier. This is great marketing but in the final analysis has little if any validity.

The world’s strongest animals are herbivores and do not eat meat for protein or anything else for that matter. Elephants, Rhinos, Hippos, Apes, etc, get all of the protein and strength they need from eating vegetation and fruit. Carnivores eat animals whose diets consist of vegetation and fruit, and eat the stomach contents first because they know that’s where the nutrients are located – NOT in the flesh. So much for a diet plan rich in protein found in animal flesh to gain strength and be healthier.

Animal Protein – Flesh: Did you know that animal protein in its original state, as in a steak or other flesh food, is of no benefit to the human body as eaten directly? Humans can only use human protein made from human amino acids. Animal protein must first be digested and broken down into human amino acids before the body can build the protein it requires. Protein foods are the most difficult to break down and require the most energy to digest… and a protein rich food regimen is NOT the best diet for weight loss, strength, conditioning, or anything else.

How Much Protein? The RDA protein requirement is a little less than 2 oz. and that includes a margin for error of approximately 1 oz. If more is consumed the excess remains in the body as toxic waste that adds weight until and if it can be cleansed through detoxification. This places an onerous burden on the digestive system because it attempts to digest the useless excess. The result is a total waste of valuable energy that could be used for weight loss in the detoxification process.

Amino Acids – The Source Of Protein: Protein is built from amino acids so the higher quality the amino acid the higher quality the protein. The highest quality amino acids are found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating them will provide all of the amino acids necessary for your body to build the protein it needs. Both are easily digested which enables more energy to be available for weight loss and better health through effective detoxification.
