A question people ask me all the time is how to get more protein into their diet, especially if eating predominantly plant-based. This is a GREAT question because many people are making the assumption they are eating enough protein when they simply aren’t.

Whether you’re a vegetarian, or not, protein is essential to your body’s ability to function. For many, meat and dairy products provide the majority of the protein they need to function. Those on plant-based diets often have a more difficult time meeting their daily protein requirements. Finding plant-based sources of protein is easier than you think, though. Here are 9 Plant-Based Proteins to help you stay healthy and strong on a plant-based diet. Read more at http://skinnyms.com/9-plant-based-proteins/#SQC9EMbvO431o1uK.99

There’s a widespread myth that plant sources don’t contain the amount of protein needed for a balanced human diet. The truth is actually the reverse: the average American is likely to end up with a myriad of health complications from overindulging bad foods, often consuming fattening animal-based products masquerading as healthy sources of protein.

While the effect of eating meat on the risk of developing cancer is a contentious topic, the evidence that long-term consumption of red meat is strongly linked with a modest, but significant, increase in the risk of developing bowel cancer is convincing. However, scientists have failed to find a mechanism to explain this apparent association, despite several hypotheses having been put forward in the past. But now, a new study conducted on mice is finally offering us some insight.

Man has historically been carnivorous. But today, due to delicate stomachs, environmental concerns and an ever-expanding empathy for our four-legged friends, vegetarianism and veganism are becoming increasingly popular. Yet many critics claim a diet without meat is less nutritionally-sound than one that includes it, primarily due to a dearth of protein.

There was this chap, Stanley Green - you might have heard of him - who trudged the West End of London for more than two decades carrying a placard that advocated Less Lust From Less Protein.
