No. It’s a myth. Nearly all whole foods (including greens and veggies) contain protein, and nearly all forms of protein contain all protein-forming amino acids in some quantity. If you eat a variety of nutrient-rich, whole foods, your body will work its magic to store what it needs to function optimally. Scientists used to claim that herbivores would develop protein deficiency if they didn’t get essential amino acids in proper, combined amounts at every meal. But our bodies are amazing. See, when we eat, amino acid “deposits” are made into a “storage bank,” and the body then takes what it needs as it’s needed. So, you don’t have to eat complementary proteins together with each meal in an effort to make complete protein. Your body has a system already set up; you just need to eat a variety of foods to fill the bank. By eating a variety of plant foods with “incomplete proteins” throughout the day, we can easily get enough “complete protein.”

Picture a giant 400lb gorilla. What does he eat to grow that strong, muscular body? Leaves, stems, roots, seeds and fruit (and maybe the occasional insect that lives on those foods). The body actually works less (uses less energy) to process protein from a vegetable-based diet than it does from a meat-based diet, too. This energy conservation is great for more efficient healing, building and overall optimal health. Most plant-based protein sources, contrary to animal-based sources, are also alkalizing for the body. Which means less aches and pains, freedom from disease, better sleep, happier moods, improved memory and concentration, stronger/more efficient digestion and an overall better state of health.


Overly simplistic (as usual in these threads)...the Gorrillamicrobiome breaks down the leave and produces medium chain fats that the gorrilla uses for energy....you or I eat those leaves for a week,and it won't do the same.

https://ww2.energy.ca.gov/almanac/electricity_data/web_qfer/Heat_Rates_cms.php

Gorrilla microbiome changes depending on the season, and changes drastically during fruit season.

So to say "eat leaves and fruit" is only realistically "naturall" if in season fruit is eaten exclusively, and leaves the rest.

The reason that we can get diabetese is due to the evolutionary advantageof being able to storeall those seasonal sugars as fat foruse later...then we westernise and eatthem every day and wonder why we have problems.

Retrograde your starches, and yourmicrobiome flourishes.


If it's the truth....it can handle the pressure !!!

I have diabetes and have been learning how to cure myself of it. From what I've learned, over-consumption of carbohydrates is the root cause of Metabolic Syndrome (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, etc) so John McDougall speaks nonsense. There is no minimum dally requirement for carbohydrates because the body can synthesize all it requires. I've cut way back on starches (bread, potatoes, etc) and eat as much high-fat, minimally-processed foods as I can - I've slowly been losing weight and my blood sugars have never been better.

I find that if I can write about what I'm learning, I will understand it better so here is what I've learned so far: Diabetes and Weight Loss.

You're playing loose with facts..

- not all plant derived proteins contain all of the essential amino acids our bodies need. Some plant proteins lack an amino acid or two all together. Soy is widely considered the most complete plant protein there is but even soy has so little of several amino acids, that alone, it's not considered sufficient for human dietary needs. Don't take my word for it.. look it up.

- like many primates, gorillas eat insects (they have an affinity for termites so it's more than the "occasional" bug). Oz for oz, insects are very energy dense.
