So, you probably remember, or even try to forget that cinematic masterpiece from Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott, "Dude, Where's my car?"
Well, I bump into people like those two all the time who seem to lapse into a bro-science induced coma whenever I talk about the health benefits of significantly lowering your intake of meat, cheese, milk and other animal products.
I mean, China is instructing its' citizens to cut their meat intake in half and even Arnie is telling the world to go vegan.
Anyway, these bro-science brothers all kinda glaze over, with this distant squinty gaze in their eyes and start with a long drawn out,
"But duuuuuuuude, if I stop eating meat and eggs and milk and stuff, where am I going to get my protein?"
This question makes a number of presumptions that require some further thought:
How much protein do we actually need each day?
Okinawans average 38g of protein each day, most of it plant based.
We will explore the 'How Much Protein' question in "Dude, Where's My Protein Part 2"
Where do other species get their protein from if they don't eat meat?
Gorillas and Elephants?
When you look at vegan bodybuilders, they build seriously impressive muscular physiques eating just 50-70g of protein per day, around 2 1/2 oz.
So let's ask another key question:
At what age or stage of our life do we and other mammals gain the most muscle and body mass as a percentage?
As a baby developing: 3x bodyweight in 6 months
Calves into cows
Less than 3.3% protein
What do we/they consume as their food source during this time?
What is the protein percentage in mother's milk?
Not even 1%
What is the protein percentage in plants?
Well lets have a look shall we and do a bit of a comparison?!?
These results come froma simple gogle search "How much protein in __________?
High protein Animal sources, (100g serving size):
Cow's milk 3.3g
Human milk: 0.8-1g
And protein from plant sources:
Kidney Beans 24g
From the following source:
Walnuts: 1/4 cup: 4.3g
Cashews: 1/4 cup: 4.3g
Almonds: 1/4 cup: 5.9g
So, it isn't that difficult to receive more than adequate amounts of protein from plant sources, while promoting better health and reducing Your risk of 80% of causes of death over 40.
Something to think about if health, energy, longevity and vitality is important to you.
