Under #2 it says,
"I see about twenty to thirty new patients per week, and I always ask them, “Which has more protein – one hundred calories of steak or one hundred calories of broccoli?” When I tell them it’s broccoli the most frequent response is “I didn’t know broccoli had protein in it.”
If you look at the nutritional facts of Broccoli and Steak, steak has considerably more protein per calorie. Not broccoli.

He goes on to mock his patient's by saying, "I then ask them, “So where did you think the calories in broccoli come from? Did you think it was mostly fat, like an avocado, or mostly carbohydrate, like a potato?”
Even though he's ramming "vegetables are high protein foods" into their heads he's being very misleading because over half of broccoli's calories are from carbohydrate
not protein. The protein content of broccoli appears to be roughly 2/5 of the calories.
Why post stuff that is wrong? It discredits the website and makes me skeptical of anything else I read from this author at the least and at the most on this website. Yes, I'm vegan and yeah, regardless of what you guys say or don't say I have my own convictions that have lead me to become a vegan. This is just troubling because we don't have to overstate things and lie about things to get our health message across. If overstating and lying is
what's required to get the message across, then the message clearly is not the right one.
