America’s Protein Obsession by Christopher Gardner, PhD | SOUL Food Salon


How does frequency of exercise factor in? Is there any rationale to consuming that 15 grams right after lifting or exercise? When you eat these things as part of a vegetarian or a more plant based diet can you eat these not all at the same time? Can you have rice at breakfast and… I did but you answered it. But you just brought something else up that I have a question about. Is there a difference between an apple today versus an apple 40, 50, 60 years ago, the way in which we grow them? When you are talking about grains, are you talking about whole grains? But when the grain in processed, don’t they remove the germ which is where the protein is? On whole milk, whole cottage cheese, whole dairy versus low fat? Do they take anything out when you go to low fat? Seventy? Another related question. One thing I am gathering from these slides is that we just eat too much. And theres a whole movement toward ketogenic diets… How much of those two amino acid deficiencies before you start having problems? Like, I gotta have this because its missing those two amino acids and I just wasted two hours lifting. Is there any evidence to suggest that eating all this extra protein over years and years can be damaging? Would you agree though that eating animal protein is associated with other negative outcomes? Well then the thing that animal protein comes in? So, talk to us about the anti-carb craze. Can you talk a little about whey protein, added to smoothies for example? My daughter eats oatmeal in the morning and she is hungry two hours later. But if she eats something with fat or protein, then she can go for hours. I’d like you to speak to the pros of soy because I’ve heard a lot of people have a problem with it. Does cooking to protein change it? Like, the steamed broccoli versus the raw? So the whole raw food and eat raw is just another trend. No I’ve seen more people that are like, “Don’t cook your food. Just eat raw. Eat raw.” I’d like your opinion on new types of processed foods.That on one hand propagate Americans getting too much protein. But on the other hand, they might help the environment. Impossible meat and Memphis Meat, where are you on that? Will you eat it? Why don’t you do it? It is because of the taste, the idea? How is your 25-year-old son’s diet now? I am assuming you have been talking about organic soy. Because we have tons of GMO grown produce. I saw once this video clip that was from Sweden. They tested a family that, before, was just eating normal. And then they put them, for a whole week, on all organic, no GMO whatsoever. And this family had lots of issues. From asthma to allergic reactions for certain things… And it was amazing, the blood test results. They were feeling much better, much more energized and all that. And then they asked the mother… “So, would you go for it?” She said, “Well its a little bit more expensive.” “But for the sake of my family, I will continue because we are all feeling much better.” You mentioned the Gypsy Soup and you made my mouth water. Probably because Im already hungry. Just to follow up, I wanted to get clarity and your point of view on the four things your said about GMOs. It seems like the last two, which is more of the health component. Whether you are more concerned about having a modified gene in your body. It seems like you’re just not that worried about those. Switching gears, so the China Study. You’re issue there is that its not showing causality.

  1. Instead of mushroom burger, probably healthier to boil wheat berry and mushroom soup (add veggies), and can add a small amount of beef for those who must have beef. China has already told its citizens to cut down on animal products by 50% for health and for the environment (probably safer to also take vitamin b12 supplement if reducing animal products). Most vegan animals are probably fake vegans since they probably also ate lots of insects sitting on the leaves. Instead of whole grains, it is also easy to try alternate staple foods like tubers (sweet potato, potato) to get enough calories. Potato is the staple food in Peru. Sweet potato used to be the main staple food in Okinawa Japan. In Japan, they cook the by product (okara) of making soy milk and tofu. I do prefer unprocessed soy like edamame, tempeh and natto. Some brands of tofu now have 0 fiber so it is sort of junk food. Commercial tempeh is pasteurized so it probably does not contain live microbes. Raw vegans probably get most calories from fatty foods like avocado and nuts altho is it possible to eat raw sprouted grains and some tubers like sweet potato can be eaten raw. To lose weight, one way to start is to get rid of all processed foods and refined substances like oil, sweeteners, juice, refined flour, protein powder, tofu, vegan fake meat, vegan fake cheese, salt, supplements (except vitamin b12), etc. Pesticides for sure are bad for the farm workers. For the minority of people who are willing to give up restaurants and prepare their own food, it is easy to do the more restrictive plant based diets for many years such as : pritikin diet, Dr Dean Ornish diet, Dr McDougall diet, etc. There is probably no debate that a refined substance like oil is junk food.

  2. hmm, love me some steak, fish, or chicken to get my protein requirement of 1.5g/kg of protein. pretty optimal

  3. I know this is only anecdotal and it's only one person, but I don't think it's a coincidence that a close friend of mine who is a staunch chest pounding big meat eater, has been suffering from kidney stones since his early twenties and they keep recurring. That's enough science for me and the reason I am not a scientist. 😉 Good work Thanks for sharing. Metta.

  4. Meats heal. There is absolutely no need for any carbohydrates in human diet.

    Let the ruminants convert tasteless grasses into tasty steaks.

    The plant based diet is high in carbohydrates which is not compatible with at least 75% of the population is on the carbohydrate intolerant spectrum.
