* * * About protein... Best sources?
- "Dr. Enzyme" : Does your protein (source) get absorbed 100%,
digested 100%, and utilized 100% and in 23 minutes?
I want to know what do I take to get 80gm of plant source
Ellis: Hello Dr. Enzyme. I don't know the answer to your
first questions, and I don't know the answer yet to your
second question... but I know how you can get the answer to
your second question.
Your first question: "Does your protein (source) get absorbed
and digested and utilized in 23 minutes"...
I don't know the answer, but I suppose you know the answer so
tell us that you know, and tell us that you have a protein
that is absorbed 100% and can be digested and utilized in 23
minutes... We're waiting...
It is obvious to me that to digest protein in 23 minutes it
has to be from a plant source of protein, because animal
protein is much more difficult to digest. This was established
in 1833 in William Beaumont's experiments on digestion.
See "William Beaumont, Experiments and Observations on the
Gastric Juice and the Physiology of Digestion"
I don't know the answer to your second question, either...
"what do I take to get 80gm of plant source protein?"
But I can guess real quick: 80 grams is 8% of 1000 grams...
so you need one kilogram of BEANS... soy beans, or lima beans
or green peas... or 80 grams is 3% of about 2.500 kilograms
of VEGETABLES... (that's a huge VEGETABLE SALAD!!!)
How did I know beans are aprox 8% protein and vegetables are
aprox 3% protein?
BECAUSE I PUT TOGETHER MY CARBOHYDRATE THERMOMETER, and
this was one of the tidbits of information that I learned by
osmosis when I put together my AMAZING CARBOHYDRATE
THERMOMETER... (note: it really is "amazing...").
See my AMAZING CARBOHYDRATE THERMOMETER here:
One kilogram is A LOT OF SOY BEANS... and two and one half
kilograms of Vegetables is one whole lot of vegetables...
I hope you can eat that much... you can, in one day... or
in one week... but not in one meal...
Pretty boring, but you can do it. I would much prefer a
a small vegetable salad, a small bit of beans or nuts, and
a piece of chicken or fish.
I know where you can get some good answers.
You want your plant source to be LOW CARB and NOT ANIMAL
ORIGIN and you want it to have protein. So...
Look at my Carbohydrate Thermometer... and you eliminate
ANIMAL ORIGIN, and you eliminate the top part: BREAD,
SWEETS and CEREALS, and SUGAR.
That leaves you: VEGETABLES, FRUITS, and STARCHES.
So... next step... You DOWNLOAD DR. WALFORD's DIET PLANNER...
This is a free program, and it is the best program to learn
about nutrition that you will find on the internet:
or you can go to the U.S. Dept of Agriculture Nutrient
Database and search their database of 6000 foods. This
superb database, by the way, is available and you can buy it
on a CD-Rom for a few dollars, or use it free on the internet.
I wonder how there could be so many intelligent and talented
people working together at the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, with
such an EXCELLENT DATABASE... and all together all they could
come up with as short advice to the public was the ATROCIOUS
FOOD GUIDE PYRAMID.
If you follow the choices of the Food Guide Pyramid,
High Carbohydrate foods should comprise the largest part
of your meal... foods such as BREAD AND SPAGHETTI
and CEREALS and I remember (because I LAUGH AT IT)
Can you believe an intelligent person who RECOMMENDS MUFFINS
for good health?
The Master of Disaster...
And an entire U.S. Dept of Agriculture make a laughing stock
of itself... for many years they withstood the criticism of
Dr. Atkins and Dr. Bernstein, until it became OBVIOUS that
to RECOMMEND HIGH CARBS is HORRIBLE for diabetics and
Muffins... For what? To die sooner?
ONE MUFFIN will shoot my blood glucose to 180, without
any doubt. Every muffin in the world will shoot my blood
glucose up. There is not a decent muffin on planet earth,
and they recommended muffins... Absolutely incredibly
BAD ADVICE, coming from the U.S. Dept of Agriculture.
Shame, shame... forever, shame.
They modified their atrocious Food Guide Pyramid, lately, but
it is still wishy-washy... I have a page where I compare
the horrendous "Food Guide Pyramid" with the "Good Guide
Pyramid." Of course, the Good Guide, by yours truly,
the Good Guide...
