I've been reading the blogs of some fruititarian/ vegetarian and vegan people. Sometimes they will eat nothing but fruit all day, other days things like crackers and seeds with fruit/ veggies.
My question is, how can anyone live on so little protein? Wouldn't this lead to an inevitable heart attack eventually? I know the 'incomplete' proteins complement each other and add up, but I'm reading that people are only getting a few grams of protein TOTAL let alone if they can even add up to form a 'whole.' Worse yet you read about people pursuing their animal and fat free diets yet their health issues worsening - I feel terrible that they, I hate to say it, don't know any better. Anyways, my issue is with the protein. People can't live long on a low protein diet, can they?? Seems like heart issues are imminent.
