    Most people are very confused about what is a "high protein" food. The other day my boyfriend wanted to go out for nachos. "I must be craving protein" he said. I was like, no... Enjoy your nachos, but if nachos are what you're craving, that's fat you're craving. Nachos aren't high in protein.

      Yeah, sounds about right... I could've even called in an order to a steakhouse (I only had an hour, so a sit-down meal would've been iffy)
      I was pretty irritated with his lack of knowledge (and my crappy cell/data connection on the bus in bfe CT meant it was hard to find something on my own)... boggles my mind.

      I know If I'm craving nachos, I'm craving the carby crunch. Unless there's a pile of meat on top (and I don't usually enjoy meat on nachos, it tends to be low quality, often underseasoned and/or dried out) there's barely any protein in nachos!
      I guess you're right about people not knowing wtf protein is (which is why I even specified a chunk of meat... Lol!)... I've had people suggest beans, kale and bread as "high protein" items. *facepalm*

      • At our last nutrition meeting I asked some of our girl athletes (8-15 years old) what some good sources of protein are. Some responses: Bananas. Apples. Bagels.

        • You guys are depressing me, with the exception of Mr. A I'm assuming you were all talking to functioning adults. I bet they all knew how to navigate their smart phones and are competent texters! I'm going to crawl back under my rock now.

            But they hear constantly that there's protein in everything. That it's impossible not to get enough protein. That most Americans are getting 4 times as much protein as they need and are going to die from it. Really, the vegan disinformation is ubiquitous, and out of some bizarre sort of respect, no one points out the huge fact gaps.

                      • The big problem with the protein question is all the big cereal companies are jumping on the protein bandwagon and claiming there cereal/cereal bars etc are an excellent source of protein.

                        On a more serious note I once had a veg@n try and argue that steak was a processed food...head meet desk!
                        Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                          • So the current fads at my office are juice fasts and going vegetarian. I can't explain the first one, but apparently the vegetarianism is because of that study that was in the news recently that eating 7-9 servings of fruits and veg a day leads to longer life. I'm so confused ... cutting out grains have caused me to eat way more fruit and veg than cutting out meat ever would. Nothing wrong with vegetarianism, but I'm baffled why the take away from that article for so many people was apparently to cut out meat...

                              Maybe they think they can't eat that much a day?

                              It's not hard. 2 cups of (homemade crammed full of veggies) veggie soup is nearly 4 serves of veggies and it's not in the least bit filling.

                              In Australia it's recommended you eat that much veggies on top of everything else.

                              • General nutrition courses in college (at least mine) are currently teaching that vegetarianism MAY be better for your health than eating meat because we have lower rates of heart disease and other serious health issues, but they emphasized that this may be because we simply pay more attention to our diets than the general populace and tend not to eat things like fast food. It's probably turned a few omnivores, but I don't think this is a bad thing.
