Today's episode is the long-awaited animal protein episode and whether it is health promoting or harmful. We cover the major studies between animal protein and cancer, heart disease, Diabetes Type 2 and all cause mortality, as well as how protein is created and reacts within our bodies. I answer the common question: how do you get protein on a plantbased diet? and break down how much protein we actually need in a day, where we can easily get it from plantbased sources and how much protein plant foods have in them so you can set yourself up for success on a plantbased diet.
We look to The Blue Zones and the longest living people around the world to study how much of their diets rely on animal protein and what diet is best for longevity. From protein powders, to the keto diet and whether mock meats are healthier than real meat - I dive into all of the questions that naturally arise when discussing animal protein and plantbased lifestyles. I hope you love this episode, learn something new and it encourages you along your #plantbasednotperfect path.
