  1. YES! And I lost 50 pounds by upping my protein intake to around 60 grams per day, and cutting way down on starches. Feel better by having very small amounts of bread, potatoes, rice, etc.!

    Me again. I thought that I’d put in my 2 cents for vegetable protein, which is basically ignored in this article. Here’s a great link to some vegetables that will give you all the (complete) protein your body could ask for and it has the added benefit of being cruelty-free! http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/vegetables-high-in-protein.php (this isn’t blatant self-promotion, it’s an independent site 😉
