An important mistake is not getting sufficient protein. In India vegetarianism is common, and it can be challenging getting enough protein without correspondingly raising the carb intake.

Another one is accepting fasting blood sugar levels in the range of 110-130 as 'normal'! I see this very commonly.

In my work as an Integrative Physician, and using a food diary, I have seen that it is almost impossible to reach a 1gm/kg recommendation without supplementation. Especially in vegetarians.

As long as you are eating any reasonable selection of unrefined plant foods, if you take care of the calories, the protein takes care of itself. The scientific evidence has been clear for over a century. In order to get a deficiency of protein, or any of the essential amino acids, you’d have to eat a bizarre diet. You’d have to eat nothing but apples, or nothing but extracted sugars and fats, or (as is much more likely) nothing but alcohol.

This is quite a dangerous point of view. Protein calorie malnutrition is common in children in underdeveloped countries and leads to avoidable deaths. Protein deficiency is very common in countries like India; the newspapers are full of it. Gorillas are not humans.

protein obtained from fish ,meat ,chicken , causes the damage of kidneys and liver , due to the poisonous effects of aluminium chloride, and some other metals where the fish and small animals are taking the water contaminated with heavy metals . So excess protein also causes deaths sometimes .

Reply

well contamination is different thing....that way everything is contaminated....

shashi was telling about quality of proteins....

Reply

quality is more important than quantity . What is the use of that protein which causes liver and kidney diseases on large scale which can't be over looked . It is better to go for plant proteins . We have to go for the lesser devil when absolute elimination is not possible .

our body is made to survive on any food...fats or proteins or carbs...
