If a vegan diet provides enough protein for a 400-pound gorilla, why do people think that it would be hard for human beings to meet their modest protein needs on a plant-based diet?

I am a personal trainer and have a degree is exercise physiology. The human body does NOT need a whole lot of protein. An athlete requires about 1 gram of protein per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of body weight. A sedentary adult only needs about .8 grams per kilogram. Basically just divide your weight in half and that is how many grams of protein you need. A vegan diet will provide more than enough protein unless you are starving yourself. The protein hype is just a marketing opportunity to sell you products.

Yes it it sad that there is the negative publicity out there supported by biased made up science

Thanks for sharing your links!
Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.
