Protein in Meat

The protein in meat often has a high biological quality compared to many plant foods. Some processed forms of meat tend to have a lower protein quality than their fresh counterparts, but still generally higher than many plant foods.

Meat protein contains all the essential amino acids in the correct proportions required by the body for optimum growth of lean, calorie-burning tissue. Maintaining our lean weight is crucial for keeping the metabolic rate sufficiently high enough to burn enough calories to lose weight.

Many plant foods can be combined to form high quality protein sources similar to the protein in meat!
