With so much in the media lately about protein and carbs especially the idea that low carb is bad, high protein is good its useful to understand what the science really means. After all, going primal or paleo is all about eating lots of protein and very little carbs; I have already written about Why Gluten Free so I thought it would be good to understand the pros and cons of eating all that meat!
I was pleased to see that someone I respect Charles Poliquin had written on the subject with an eye on dispelling some of the Myths About High-Protein Diets.
For anyone interested in eating more protein, eating healthily and generally improving your diet, I would urge you to read the Poliquin article – it certainly puts things into perspective and goes a long way to answering all those people who think that protein is bad!!
