Protein stats: (From "The Higher Taste" 1997 The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust)<br><br><br><br>
---------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br>
A 100 gram portion of meat contains 20 grams of protein<br><br><br><br>
A 100 gram portion of cheese contains 25 grams of protein<br><br>
A 100 gram portion of lentils contains 25 grams of protein<br><br>
A 100 gram portion of soybeans contains 34 grams of protein<br><br>
---------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br>
An acre of grains produces five times more protein than an acre of pasture set aside for meat production.<br><br>
An acre of beans or peas produces ten times more.<br><br>
An acre of spinach produces twenty-eight times more protein.

<b>Stephen Arlin</b>, in his book "Raw Power" (see <a href="http://www.rawfood.com" target="_blank">www.rawfood.com</a> ), explains in a question/answer section how he became much more powerful after switching to a raw vegan diet:<br><br>
Q: Are you personally stronger than when you were a cooked food eater?<br><br>
A: I can say that I'm at least twice as strong as I was when I was eating a *Standard American Diet. I used to benchpress 300 pounds three times, now I can bench that weight twenty times. That's a huge improvement in brute strength. On a burnout set I used to benchpress 135 pounds forty times, now I can bench that weight well over one hundred times. That's a huge improvement in muscular endurance. I also find that I need little or no rest between sets of exercises now.<br><br>
Q: Where do you get enough protein for real muscle growth?<br><br>
A: <b>Where does a cow, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, or gorilla get enough protein for real muscle development and growth? Raw plant foods. Protein synthesis is protein synthesis.</b><br><br>
*Note: Standard American Diet (SAD) is a meat-based diet.<br><br><br><br><b>Brendan Bazier</b> 80% raw and 100% vegan since 1991. An Ironman triathlete based in Vancouver.<br><br>
His highlights include:<br><br>
-- 1st in the 50km Canadian Ultra Marathon Championships in 2003<br><br>
-- 2nd in the Royal Victorian Marathon in 1998<br><br>
-- 3rd in the Canadian ½ Ironman Championships in 2001<br><br>
-- 8th in Ironman Utah in 2002<br><br>
-- 11th in Ironman Canada in 2001<br><br>
