Are you worried about your protein intake?
My study of Macrobiotics has taught me that Cancers feed on protein and grow on sugar.
Meat of course is an abundant source of protein but eating too much of
it will also cause damage to the Liver and Kidneys - both organs being
the great filters in our body.
We must learn that we do not just
absorb protein from meat. In order for our body to create protein from
meat, it must first break the animal protein down into amino acids and
then manufacture human protein with these. This procedure is very tiring
on the body and extremely inefficient.
Observing wild animals such as zebras, giraffes, elephants, etc.. we
realize that they do not get their protein from animal food but from..
the plants they eat.
A study performed on Rats is at the origin of the fallacy that we need lots of protein for good health.
Rats are different from humans, and this study was flawed. The milk
from mother rats contains 11 times more protein than we need.
please relax, you are not going to suffer ill health from a lack of
protein if you stop eating animal food, but you are certainly going to
suffer from the meat dangers.
One of my Macrobiotic teacher always told me that the body will never lack protein for as long as we can eat food.
was confirmed by Rose, W. in his book “The amino acid requirements of
adult man”. This verified that most complex carbohydrates found in
grains, potatoes or beans have amino acid content perfectly suitable for
our protein requirements.
Some will argue that fat is necessary
because it is a source of linoleic acid. As this acid is also contained
in brown rice, beans and other food, the body will get an ample supply
by following the diet described in these pages, and this will not be a
The following food has a high content of protein:
and other beans such as kidney beans and chick peas. Tofu, green
vegetables such as collards, kale or even iceberg lettuce are equally a
good source of protein.
