Where Do You Get Your Protein? with Dr. Michael Greger of Nutritionfacts.org


Protein can be a great concern when considering a vegan diet- where do you get it? How much is enough? This video is the first in a series addressing the most common nutritional concerns for a vegan diet. I’m honored to be joined by Michael Greger, M.D. of nutritionfacts.org to demystify vegan protein sources. To track your own protein, check out Cronometer here: http://www.BiteSizeVegan.com/Cronometer

Thank you for the video. I've tried the cronometer, so 1.5 cups of peanuts is all the protein you need in the day, that's a much easier way of measuring your intake, whilst when someone tells me in grams it tells me nothing. Very useful info

it takes guts to be gentle and kind

great video! I do get asked about my protien quite a bit, as well as iron (oddly enough?) and calcium. I keep the answers cued up in my brain for those occasions.

But truly, the true down and dirty- I get my protien from ALL my food. Unless I am eating like, only straight white table sugar (and who does that?!) its in all the food I eat. I know this because I track it online, and I meet and exceed the WHO recommendation with no thought or effort at all.

If I want to put in the (slight!) effort, and have a protien shake, bowl of bean soup, or veggie burger, I can get up to an athlete or large dude's recommended intake.

Well a veggie work colleague, whom I do been trying to gently persuade to go full vegan, said to me: "but I work out, I need my protein! I need to eat eggs after a work out and also I hate vegan cheese" . Soo even vegetarians cling on to their "protein" unwilling to let go, let alone omnis. Then I referred her to Tim Shieff and she said: "I see your point, I'll give it a go"

it takes guts to be gentle and kind

The thing many omnis are not aware of is that soya is very high in protein. My dried soya mince is something like 50% protein. That's more than a steak. So I don't get the whole concern about protein thing
