This is perfect example of a simple strawman: Person A) The protein myth (describes what it is) Person B) Protein isn’t a myth! You need it! Is likened to Person A) The China Study (describes what it is) Person B) China isn’t a study! It’s a country! Person B is engaging in straw man arguments (in this case, by word play, but there are other forms such as context dropping, substitute phrases, inaccurate summation and insinuations of motive). Me:You actually perpetuate the protein myth as a multi year vegan and previous multi year vegetarian? I find it difficult to believe you’ve been a veggie so long. Seriously? Are you not aware that by World Health Organization standards the recommended protein for humans on a daily basis is a mere 0.8 grams per kilogram of (ideal) body weight? Someone eating natural plant foods to satiation which include enough whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts cannot possibly have a protein deficiency even if they are bodybuilding. FN: As for protein, yes you do need protein. It's not a myth. You just don't need as much protein as the average American thinks. But protein is very filling, fiber is not the only filling ingredient. Just one example of many.
