Well, it is all pretty interesting seeing this discussion on meat eating…needing protein.
I can’t find the info right now, but when I read think it was Diet for a new planet some 30 years ago it gave the ratios for protein loss in frozen meat which was very high percentage wise…then there is the protein loss from cooking…
Meat is not necessary for protein, it is like everything else, something that has been programmed into us…yes, possibly O blood types do require more protein. Acquiring protein from non animal sources just requires thinking outside “the box“? and spending a little more time planning meals. Meat is quick, convenient and a no brainier, that is all. The reason I stopped eating meat 31 years ago was met a vegetarian whom I had great respect for who told me about the adrenalin an animal experiences when being killed, that I consumed the adrenalin and therefore was eating the animals fear. I decided to stop eating fear.
If we are in general agreement about the dracos, and that we have a reptilian brain at the base of our brain structure, and that the reptilian brain controls our fear, then would it not make sense to program in the consumption of a particular food stuff that would keep that reptilian brain fed?
Eating or not eating meat most certainly does not determine sts, sto or stn(service to nothing lol)…it can be a way to reduce the consumption of fear based modalities.
If one is really eating meat for protein then one must kill the animal being and consume raw for the max protein benefit, also making sure to kill an animal being that has not been fed antibiotics, steroids, pesticide laden grain, fluoridated or chlorinated water and a few other things.
So, everyone go get your spears and CHARGE…Remember, running through a farmer’s field yelling charge may get you shot, so do be careful. I’ll be waiting till you get back sitting under the tree and eating an apple…sigh, life can be so difficult sitting and munching…
Proteins are necessary for creating and maintaining hormones, tissues and sustaining growth in developing children and teens. There are 20 amino acids commonly found in both animal and plant proteins. There are generally considered to be eight amino acids that the body cannot make itself which need to be obtained from the food we eat:
The question brought up by many who do not understand the Vegan/Vegetarian diet is "If you don't eat meat or dairy, then where does your protein come from?". Contrary to popular misconception, protein can be found in several plant based foods such as suggested below:
Legumes: Peas, lentils, chickpeas and most beans.
Tofu: A great source of protein and calcium as well.
Nuts and Seeds: Peanuts, Sesame seeds, Hazel nuts, Almonds, Sunflower seeds, Pumpkin seeds, and so on.
Grains: Barley, wheat, buckwheat, oats, pastas, breads, rice
Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs)  of protein are as follows:
Infants: between 12 to 14 grams (g)
Children: between 16 to 46 g
Adolescents: need between 46 to 59 g
Although protein is a necessary part of everyone's diet, it can be detrimental when consumed in greater quantities. High protein diets can compromise our kidney function by causing our kidneys to work harder - releasing more creatinine in the process. In women especially, a high protein diet restricts calcium absorption which sets a path to osteoporosis.

Raw food provides enzymes, unaltered nutrients. That's what our animals used to eat in the wild. Heat processing has negative impact on the nutrient value.
A likely cause of the decreased in amino acid digestibility with increasing heat treatment may have been the formation of cross-linkages proteins. Cross-linking reduces the rate of protein digestion by preventing enzyme penetration or by masking the sites of enzymes attach and can occur between many amino acids. However, lysine, cysteine and phosphoserine seem to be the most susceptible. There was no effect of the additional heating on the level of amino acids including lysine in the fish meal. However, there is an evidence of cross-linkage formation as increased heat treatment. Another possible cause is increased heat treatment increased gut endogenous amino acid excretion.
Untreated protein had less lysinoalanine than other two. Lysinoalanine is an unnatural amino acid derivative formed during processing of foods. The formation of lysinoalanine in the treated proteins was accompanied with a loss of cystine (73-77%), threonine (35-45%), serine (18-30%) and lysine (19-20%). The alkaline/heat treatments caused significant (P < 0.05) reductions in protein digestibility of milk protein (99 vs. 73%) and soybean protein (96 vs. 68%).
The processing treatments also caused a drastic negative effect on protein quality,
It's all mind over matter. If you don't mind it doesn't matter...
