We are speaking about the “High Protein Diet” and not any other individual approach to the use of protein nor we are sending a bad taste in your mouth regarding protein. Protein is very important! You can skip on other bodily elements such as fat or sugar but not on protein. It is very essential in building healthy bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. However, we are being told and even our mental reflex will tell us that an extra amount of protein means extra muscles or energy. That’s what we think, but it is not.
