    Protein misconceptions


    For people that think they need alot of protein from alot of animal sources think again. I have been experimenting with a new way to see if I was ability to build muscle with a different form of a diet unlike anything I thought I would ever think would work.

    I usually run people on a higher fat diet for a few months to help rebuild their cell membranes to proper ratio then start to transition them to a more. traditional diet that is more realistic and balanced. I think protein is so over rated I am taking 100 -120 grams of protein, but its from a highly biological source so it ultized by the body much more efficiently then other harsh proteins. I am starting to make this change to alot of my clients and results are surprising thinking that they need all this protein 300 grams a day at 200 lbs. People are getting just as strong and leaner plus reducing stress on organs with more biological protein sources so they are decreasing their chances of disease plus keeping extremly alkaline in the process. To verify this I have them do a black microscope to check for virus and follwoing my suggestions for 2 months they follow up. The results have been decreased bacteria, fungus, mold, and decrease in mutated cells which where there pervioisly identified. There were also change in skin texture, over all glow, decreased anxitey, much more energy, better digestion

    my diet is about 120--140 grams of biological sources of protein , 120 net grams of carbs -30 grams of fiber from 150 grams
    fats are about 120 grams (50% saturated 25% mono 25% poly ). I eat alot of foods high in chlorophyll and sprouted nuts, seeds,
    If my cholesterol is below 125 I will add cholesterol pills to increase it top optimal level.

    I'm 195-200 lean and benchin close to 400 stiff leg dead lifts 500lbs for 6-8 reps, squating 365 for 20 reps, bent over rows 315 for reps so I am living proof one can build muscle and get stronger on this type of lifestyle. It actually reduces ones food bill by close to 40% plus benefits outweight the risks.

    Common in chrommium , manganese, candida, and low blood sugar symptoms.

    right now we can not do anything until clincal tests are completed, but sitting on the computer all day does will cause a build up of blood glucose and you will not burn it off so insulin gets released and the cycle continues.

    Oxbile does not work with me i take 200 mgs a meal with bet hcl
    My body burns cholesterol like no tommorrow possible an indication of some kind of tissue damage (leaky gut possible) since cholesterol is needed for tissue repair and stress hormones.

    cholesterol pills are available only to dr's or health consultants like myself.

    What kind of dr's can give these out? I have a hard time raising my cholesterol above 125, it's always below, and my dr thinks low cholesterol is a good thing.

    Are you guys on these diets for health reasons or because they benefit mass gains? Just curious. I am interested in getting into decent shape and building muscle but I just can't give up the food I love (I can do without fried foods and sugar fine I just have to have meat).

    Why would anyone ever want to give up meat? Especially when trying to gain mass?

    Remember that hypocholestemia can be just as bad as hypercholestemia. With a number that low, chances are your HDL are very low (a risk factor for CVD). To increase this, eat fatty fish and beef.

    Also, your statement of biological protein is a misnomer; all protein is from biological sources. Most of the above benefits are due to the fact that you are focusing on keeping the blood pH alkalinic and also that most people have a mild food allergy to grains.

    you tell me that eating 2 TBSP of EVCCO with 1 TBSP butter, with 4 whole eggs, and occasion 4 ozs a beef a day will not raise cholesterol something else is at play here.
    My suspicion is that it is leaky gut or I burn up cholesterol too fast. BTW fish oils are poison to my body ..My body is very paradoxal to the average person, but I am finding out there are more people like me out there. More cholesterol I eat the lower it gets. More fish oils i take the sicker I become. My cells are low in sat and high in fish oils and I never eat fish.

    Yeah no doubt, cutting out animal protein/fat is a good way to make your test levels drop...even on a cut it's bad to cut them out.

    Has any one figured that malabsorption is one the biggest factor involved in hormone imbalances ? IF you can not absorp fat and protein you can not make cholesterol or other hormones.

    Yeah I've almost tripled my intake of enzymes and betain, and since doing this I've really noticed that hcg is working for me. Looking forward to my new test results, have to wait a couple weeks though.

    Yeah that's what I do. I take 4 TBSP of extra virgin coconut oil, eat maybe 4-8 whole eggs per day, and chicken everyday. I eat beef maybe 2-3 times per week. I eat cheese 2-3 times per week (old/sharp cheese - no lactose). No dairy, but I am taking in casein shakes maybe twice per day. I also occassionally eat pork. Maybe 3-4 x per week. Bacon is great. Currently taking in 12grams of fishoil per day, evoo, avocado oil, sesamin, CLA, and sesame oil for flavouring. I feel good on this diet (ckd)...and hopefully it's causing my cholesterol to raise. It used to be really low (110)

    edit: where do you shop for most of this food in the initial post? I agree, it would be awesome to eat this way (but eggs, goat milk/cheese/butter is still animal fat =D )...but I haven't seen a lot of this food around too often (like the sprouted protein sources, etc). There's gotta be some places in NYC that have this stuff, maybe have to travel farther to get it which is why I've never seen a lot of it. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's has a lot of good stuff though... that's where I usually shop... But it's PREMIUM prices for ANY organic foods, especially the non-mass produced stuff.

    Btw, someone in another country told me that eating beef and pork are bad for us, because they are the two protein sources that are most similar to human protein. I laughed at them, but is this true? Didn't make sense to me, since we thrive off mother's milk when young (which is essentially a protein produced by humans), and goats milk is also the closest thing to mother's milk and known to be really healthy.

    I don't think you need red meat to maintain good testosterone levels. Where did you read that? We don't need cow or mother's milk after two either. I was born in 1958. My pediatrician told my mother to take me off of milk at age two. I grew up on a diet of mostly fruits and vegetables. We ate red meat once a week. My main sources for protein were fish eggs and some poultry. At the age of 15 I played JV QB at 6'2.5 212lbs. I later decided to focus on tennis. When I was 16 I played the Pepsi International Challenge in Johannesburg SA. I was 6'3" 200 lbs (very lean), and served over 130mph with a wood racket. I don't think my diet hurt me.

    I was saying that we need animal fat. Saturated fat is what creates testosterone, and the only good non-animal source that I know of is coconut oil. Imo coconut oil is good to supplement your diet, but animal meat has many more nutrients and should also be part of your diet. Red meat also has many other benefits. I mean, if you have a medical condition where maybe you shouldn't be eating red meat, then don't eat it....but for otherwise healthy people - it is very nutritious and packed full of goodness.

    I'm not saying we need mothers milk either, maybe the question was misunderstood. I was asking why beef/pork/goats milk/or even mothers milk would be bad for humans at any point, simple because they are more similar to us than other protein sources. I don't understand this concept that my friend told me of...there was nothing to back up the statement either...but maybe someone here knows?

    I was vegetarian for maybe 5-6 years, I started to eat meat again because I felt like complete $hit. (I was completely vegan for several years and then began to introduce eggs/butter/milk for a couple more years because I wasn't feeling good, but this didn't help - so I completely reverted) I honestly think it played a large role in my own hormonal issues since I did it from age 18-24. I thought I was eating healthy too at the time. Cooked all my meals and shopped at the organic shops, ate a lot of non-cooked meals as well. All sorts of protein sources. I was meticulous about it most of the time. IMO it's not for everyone. Everyone is different. We all have different biology/dna/etc.

    Perhaps a lot of it has to do with the way we are raised. I've been eating this way all of my life. At 22 I tried the macrobiotic diet. I lost too much strength and energy. I gave it up after 18 months

    I'm aware that cholesterol and fats are necessary for testosterone production, but never heard about saturated. Where did you pick that up?

    It's a pretty large misconception with most people that eating a lot of dietary cholesterol will raise their serum, but it's not the case.

    It is saturated fat which creates cholesterol within the liver.

    Dietary cholesterol will not raise serum cholesterol to any great degree.

    Cholesterol builds hormones.

    Mono's and poly's do not aid in hormone synthesis. Eating nuts, olive oil, etc is great for energy but in no way will it aid in raising cholesterol directly, they actually aid in lowering cholesterol.

    It's easy to find this information anywhere. I could site some sources but I've got to head out. Maybe Matrix or someone can mention something about it as well though. It was after being on this forum for a while that I realized this truth, learned from them and others and then researched it for myself too.

    Exactly right. I have now freakin moderate thoracic kyphosis, and it seems to be some osteoporosis. All from god damn malabsorbtion. And i always had the tendency to eat lots of calcium rich foods, and for what for it to not be absorbed properly as well as everything else.

    Now i know why i have a tendency to be a supplement junkie because i never absorb **** properly.

    Although my case is probably more severe, but any kind of malabsorbtion and you cant make the proper hormones.

    1400-1700 cals is good in my view. I eat less than that and im 6'3 at 210lbs. My metabolism is crap due to hashimotos and all other hormones in the ****ter.

    would the hashimotos or even hypothyroidism in general cause malabsorbtion itself??

    My cholesterol is 2.4 (3.0 - 5.0) my LDL, HDL also low.

    I have had great results with coconut oil for my candida, absorbtion and my digestion feels better/smoother when i use it. its good stuff.

    my body craves saturated fats as well. I muscle tested at 3TBSP EVCCO and my RBC fatty acid test should low sat fats.When people have leaky gut they tend to use glutamine and cholesterol, sat fats at high rates. There are also cholesterol pills which I am going to order to see if it helps out the serotinon and neurotransmitter imbalance, leaky gut. my main goal is leaky gut, thyroid , and possible wilsons disease (80%) sure. My ferritin levels took a huge nose time ftrom 80 to 42. Could this be from 60 mgs zinc a day?

    Well for the past couple of months thats mostly what ive been focusing on to improve my leaky gut/candida albicans/absorbtion. Adding hormone replacement will be the final piece of the puzzle for me after i see where my mercury levels are.

    I used: Probiotics ( a high dose multi-strain biotics such as ultrabiotic 45), L-Glutamine 10grams per day, Zinc to help heal the gut lining, Coconut oil, digestive enzymes, aloe vera extract juice was very helpful to reduce inflammation and promote healing of the gut, various anti-fungal herbs, hydrated bentonite clay which detoxifies the gut. Psyillium husks when needed and epsom salts to flush out the bowels. Then did liver detox with liver tonic.

    I try to get my supplements in liquid/tonic form or a form that i can drink like effevescent tablets, i find this drastically improves absorbtion of what im taking. Tablets dont do anything, i notice no benefits from taking anything in tablet form.

    Leaky gut is usually caused by candida or parasites, im going to do stool tests for parasites, they can be a real bitch and stay with you for years causing problems. constant iregular bowel habits are attributed to parasites.

    When i look at my tongue i can see improvements in my inner GI terrain. The very deep criss cross lines arent their like before indicating better terrain. Only thing that is really depressing is this moderate thoracic kyphosis. My sister also has severe kyphosis and scoliosis although u dont notice it whatsoever when u look at her. I hope this can be improved. it might be from my bad posture as a child or from Scheuermann's Kyphosis which is genetic.

    Matrix have you had a colonoscopy, gastroscopy and endoscopy? if not these would give you a lot of clues...

    Fecal Fat test also the standard for any kind of malabsorbtion.
