    Sorry, the “You’re Probably Not Eating Enough Protein” article is pseudo-science. For a counter-argument I recommend “Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It” by Garth Davis (M.D.)

    Davis is a bariatric surgeon who deals with the morbidly obese far more often than most M.D.s His prescription: carb-based diet. The idea that carnivores don’t get enough protein is just ridiculous.

    Carbs are carbon chained molecules, digested down to glucose (C-C-C) and glycogen. Add some more carbons and you have table sugar. More carbons, you get complex carbs, oil and fat. Add a Nitrogen…and presto! The carbs are proteins…and we excrete most of the N (which is why urine is a good fertilizer).

    See “The China Study” (Colin Campbell) or Dr. McDougall’s website for more.
