Another fantastic post about why vegetable protein is in no way a perfect substitute for good old fashioned animal meat!
Another great post! Happy to share.
In case the whole angle of this blog series isn’t totally clear from its title, Zero-a-day, let me start off by underscoring once again the basic premise: humans have no requirement for dietary carbohydrate.
So I’ve looked at fruit and fructose, and now I’ll have a quick look at vegetables, although – spoiler alert! – you now know I’m going to conclude that there’s no more need to eat vegetables than there is to eat fruit.
Tell me if you ever see a broccoli plant scampering up a tree in order to escape its natural predators. Or a lettuce. (Although broccoli didn’t even exist until it was bred about 2,500 years ago, a mere pulse in the human timeline). While plants and trees want animals to eat their fruit, if they bear any, in order to propagate their seeds, they don’t want animals to freely eat their…

And I don’t have 47 reasons either. So if that’s what you were expecting, click away now. If, on the other hand, you’re interested in whether fructose is a positive or negative element in your diet, then read on…
In my last blog I mentioned how fructose doesn’t trigger the normal satiation signalling, so humans are prone to gorge on fruit, which might be an evolutionary mechanism that would help us, and other mammals, put on fat over autumn in order to survive winter – ‘scheduled obesity’.
Now that fruit is available in unlimited quantities and at all times, the amount of fructose coursing through our systems is far greater than our liver’s capacity to deal with it. But guess what – the food available to humans today is different from 40,000 years ago…

Very good points made here!
Now, couple this with the fact that the rice and beans contain only about half the quantity of protein that is in a comparable quantity of eggs. So rice and beans have half the protein of eggs, and THAT protein is only half as usable as that in eggs. This means that the rice and beans have AT MOST a mere one-fourth the usable protein amount of eggs. No problem, you say – I’ll…
