Tag Archives: protein on a low-fat raw vegan diet

What is “ENOUGH” protein on a raw vegan diet?

I got an email from someone last week who was confused by my raw vegan diet.

“But why don’t you eat any quality vegan protein?”  she asked.

Her question was indicative of a fundamental misunderstanding that most people have about protein.

So I decided to make this video for you to explain about protein, amino acids and our real need for them and whether or not we can get enough on a low fat raw vegan diet.

This is the result…

 

In this video I talk about the amount of protein that the World Health Organisation says we need daily for optimal health, and it’s far less than you think.  I also share some great resources that helped me determine EXACTLY how much protein I need per day.  And just how much protein you would get even if you ONLY ate bananas all day.
