Carrot Cake is a Good Source of Vegetables & Just Because a Food Contains Some Protein Does Not Mean it is a Good Source of Protein

Listen



Note 1



When considering protein options, keep in mind that just because a food has some protein in it does not qualify it as a useful source of protein.

Note 2



A food is a “protein” if it has more calories coming from protein than from fat or carbohydrates, and whose protein can be readily used by the body.

Note 3



Concentrated Sources of Protein: seafood: 51% to 94% protein, egg whites: 91%, white meat with or without skin: 51% to 80% protein, dark meat without skin: ~60% protein, low-fat cottage cheese: 60% to 85% protein, low-fat plain Greek yogurt: 60% to 70% protein, lean (ideally grass-fed) red meat: 51% to 75% protein, low-sugar casein or whey protein powder: >70% protein.

SANE

High-Quality Protein = High-Quality Health & Protein Progress, Not Protein Perfection

Listen



Note 1



Low-fat dairy and lean meats are more concentrated sources of protein, but that does not at all mean that SANE fats should be avoided.

Note 2



SANE eating is as beneficial for vegans as it is for omnivores. Remember, SANE is a guide, not a MUST-DO-EXACTLY-THIS-OR-ELSE fad diet.

Note 3



Consider mollusks (animals without a central nervous system like clams, oysters, scallops and mussels) rice, pea, and hemp low-sugar protein powders, and branch chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements if meat, fish, and dairy are not compatible with you lifestyle.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

Remember these? Give them one more try now that you’ve spent a few minutes going SANE.

Q1

Humanely raised meat is the best source of Nutrient-Dense Protein.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! Seafood (ideally sustainably and humanely caught) is the preferred source of Nutrient-Dense Protein when going SANE. Unless you are going to eat organ meats from grass-fed or free-range meat, seafood or any other source of Nutrient-Dense Protein is just as useful as meat.

Q2

Eggs, beans, quinoa, and nuts are key low-cost sources of Nutrient-Dense Protein.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! These foods get a small fraction of their calories from protein. They are “good sources of protein” like carrot cake is a “good source of vegetables.”

Q3

It is very easy to enjoy a SANE approach to protein as a vegetarian.



True

Correct! It can be more of a challenge for vegans, but low-sugar plant-based protein powders and branch chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements can help simplify.

False

Try again.

Step 5 of 6



Support

The number of people keeping you accountable is your #1 predictor of long-term success.

Sharing your SANEity enables you to enjoy instant accountability and support from your social networks. The science is 100% clear: The more you share your SANEity, the more success you will enjoy.
