Why call it the power of protein?
-lack of protein is a major driver of insulin resistance
-choice of many delicious high-protein foods
-eating protein :
~builds muscle
~causes very little insulin rise
~cuts hunger cravings

Consumers convinced:
“plant protein is superior…”
-that is false by every
objective measure
-in every instance, animal
proteins beat plant proteins

For example…
-pea protein:
-to get enough, must take
1000 peas to get 1 serving
~amino acid profile subpar
~contain anti-nutrients
=phytic acids
=tannins
=trypsin inhibitors
=heavy metals

Dr Ted Naiman:
-make protein 30% of diet
-1g protein per pound ideal body weight
-Less than 1g carbs & fat per pound body weight
-impossible to overeat protein
