I eat pretty much what stcalico has been saying, and not so much in the way of nuts due to Dr Esselstyn's plant based wholefood diet advice which in turn was based from the Dr T Colin Campbell's China Study...DukeD mentioning Dr Campbell
So it's quite a heady mix to: a) muscle build being a Vegan b) deal with lowish Thyroid (cut out soya) c) lower body fat d)keep enough energy food in the diet for my workouts e) try and not have too many oily foods in my diet (and no added oil) re trying Dr Esselstyn's diet
...but it' all good fun
Perhaps someone can add something about, too much protein in the diet having adverse affects or is that just animal protein
I'm sure I read about this whilst I was doing a mass read on Dr T C Campbell and Dr Esselstyn...can't quite remember though...it was more than just bone loss/Vit D? mass in meat eaters it was also to do with causing other diseases if too much protein is consumed e.g. anything above 15% of daily intake...I'll have to see if I can find out about it again...
