    Last time I saw protein recommendations they were higher than what I was
    used to. I was going by the RDA for a woman my age for years then
    suddenly a larger RDA was the order of the day. I think a lot of
    diabetics who are eating relatively low carb would need to get the
    majority of their protein from meat and fish and possibly cheese.

    Could be. I spent many years as a vegetarian and ate a heck of a lot less
    protein (that I knew about) than I do know. I used to think that the only
    plant protein was in nuts, seeds and beans. And I assumed that I had to eat
    a grain to make the beans be a complete protein.

    Now I see that all those lunches I had of a vegetable plate (three different
    kinds of vegetables) weren't so bad after all!

    Okay I looked it up.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwashiorkor

    It's rare in developing countries and can come about with a diet that is
    high in starches and low in protein. Starches. But they were not specific.
    So maybe stuff like rice, bread and pasta? You know...non-vegetable stuff.
    Because the link I posted was about vegetables.

    Partly because Cassava contains at most 2% protein, and partly because
    there are other factors involved than lack of protein.

    Like a general lack of food, also called starvation.
    I remember those pictures of the kids in Biafra during that war in
    Nigeria.

    It always bugs me a bit when someone says "oh, I'm starving" since
    seeing those and pictures of children in Somalia in the 90s.

    I used to tell my daughter, "children in Somalia are starving, you are
    merely hungry." She knew what I meant because she used to read the
    newspaper upside down while I sat across from her at breakfast before
    school, and had asked me about them.

    You cannot survive protein starvation intact, nor fat, eventually you'll
    fail, miserably so, with no ability to build or maintain healthy lean
    body mass and cells, or all the functions that require fats. But
    protein is paramount, and we need more of it for optimal health than
    current nutrition guidelines call for.

    I used to read and believe that crap vegetarian propaganda and live by
    it; that's how I became severely IR.

    You're probably correct, but I don't see it as common on newsgroups to ask that
    particular question of a new poster.

    Consider me an infrequent lurker with the possibility that I will get more
    involved...or just someone who thought I had an interesting question







    or I suppose I should just ask you who you are? But I won't.

    You did, which led me to the Wikipedia about kwashiorkor and further into
    nutrition information. I've seen kassava in some shops here, but at 38%
    carbs and the danger of cyanide poisoning unless properly prepared I
    think I'll pass. Oh, found a bread with only 18% carbs, should be okay
    for an evening snack!

    You'll find out.

    my opinion is that protein is overrated. i think the body needs amino
    acids, which comprise protein. Amino acids are everywhere in food, also
    in plants. when we eat meat, the body breaks the animal proteins first
    before absorbing the amino acids. might as well eat amino acids in
    plants - healthier.

    but it sure as hell doesn't taste as good as an inch-thick bloody steak!


    on a side note, I think the whole protein hype and myth was started by
    meat producers. It's a billion-dollar industry world wide. I'm sure they
    have the money and the power to start a myth or two.

    Yeah, like the whole grain myth was started by grain producers? And the meat
    is bad for you myth was started by groups like PETA etc., You mean like
    that?

    I don't think so. Anyway the research is out there regarding how much
    protein the body needs, independent research. Most pro plant food amino
    acid literature comes from vegetarian websites and books not medical
    sites.
