I'm Allergic To Dairy, Soy, Corn, Wheat, and Eggs, So What Protein Should I Eat?
I am allergic to dairy, eggs, soy, corn, and wheat.
I'm trying to avoid diabetes and I've been told to include 90 grams of protein with 6 meals a day.
With working in front of a computer all day, I need some options that fit my issues and are quick for work.
I'll start off by noting that you're not missing anything of value with those allergies. Dairy
, eggs, grains
, and processed foods are harmful and should be avoided. I have no "allergies" to these foods, but don't eat them anyway for this reason, as do most people on healthy raw food diets. Avoiding Diabetes:
Whether you're trying to avoid type two diabetes or reverse it once you've already brought it on, the science is pretty clear on the best course of action.
The diabetes epidemic has been caused by people eating diets that are way too high in fatty meats, oils, dairy, eggs, and processed food, flooding the blood with fat and impeding the flow of sugar to the cells.

.The Protein Myth:
Modern recommendations for protein are quite exaggerated, and I'd challenge whoever suggested 90 grams of protein to you to back that up with some sort of scientific basis.
I'm a very physically active 158-pound male who runs marathons, works out for at least 45 minutes a day, and otherwise pushes himself physically. I generally consume about 60 grams of protein a day, and remain in amazing health at this level of intake.
