Protein is not the answer. In fact, it’s the problem.
• Protein is not the key to weight loss — it is actually one of the biggest factors behind the obesity epidemic.
• Animal protein is not the healthiest food we can eat — it is strongly associated with diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer.
• Carbs are not the enemy — they are a source of energy, and are staples in the diets of the longest-living peoples in the world.
