It's true that most plant foods don't contain all the essential amino acids needed by our bodies, while animal proteins do," said Andrea Giancoli, a registered dietitian in Los Angeles and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. "But a grain plus a bean makes a complete protein. As long as you're getting a variety of those, you are fine -- and they don't need to be consumed at the same time."
Sheth and Giancoli also noted that certain vegan "super foods" like soy products and quinoa have been found to contain proteins that break down all the essential amino acids.
"It is absolutely possible to get enough protein from beans, lentils, tofu, soy products and other plant sources like seeds and nuts," Sheth said. "As long as you're getting a varied amount throughout the day, your body can mix it up and get what it needs."

"But a grain plus a bean makes a complete protein".....
Ha! But, I'm assuming that the bean and the grain at least need to be consumed within a short period of time of each other so that they can locate and bind correctly, right?
Hilarious. I just love it when these so called experts deliberately misunderstand and make out the we're all trying to live in caves and hunt down our dinner.
Meat, veggies, fat - unsustainable? I think not. I've never enjoyed my food so much and don't care if a breadcrumb or pasta twist never passes my lips ever again.
Presumably being lean and feeling fantastic is unsustainable too then?

[B]But grains are not essential for good health[/B], and refined grains are detrimental to health—what’s most important is to make all of our grains whole grains. Likewise, there’s no optimum amount of protein to eat at each meal—the protein source is far more important for health.
Ditto when I saw the article!
Just look at what the author says about cutting carbs:

My favorite parts are the list of supposed side effects, and the comment about regaining weight after going off the diet. I am so sick of people not understanding that what they need is not a temporary "diet", but a permanent change in their diet.
While I don't see how Paleo/Primal is the worst, I think that eliminating legumes (and, previously, tubers) is the biggest mistake in the Paleo approach. I have a feeling that the beans will find acceptance as a food source eventually. Just like potatoes did.
The criticisms Giancoli offers is not based on the 2012 data, it is based on the initial version of Paleo, that outright forbade dairy. On the other hand, she ignores that original Paleo was actually very low fat actually trying to replicate those lean antelopes sans the fatty bits. So, I am not sure which version she is actually critiquing.
I get so tired of hearing about “lean” meats. Whether or not Paleolithic humans ate a lot of lean mean or fatty meat would have varied by location. Look at the Inuit. They ate only fat and fatty meat and did just fine. Natives in the US Pacific Northwest would have eaten a lot of fatty fish.
As I side note…I love it how paleo makes these lists every year and is always called unsustainable. Whatever dude.
Unsustainable my (significantly smaller) ass.[/QUOTE]
Haha! And there's the proof, right there. I'm new, but I've lost 8 lbs in the past 3 weeks. I will be getting regular blood tests as I go along. If my bloodwork looks good, and my body feels good, and I achieve an optimal weight, then it's not going to matter to me what CW says about my diet.
