In Response To: Re: Minimum Protein Requirement for A's (THOMAS DEKANY A(1)+ISFJ-FFYB)

Hi Thomas!

I've been wondering about protein requirements also... I am not sure how to calculate the grams-- is this 75 grams of complete (complemented) protein? The protein in beans, etc., isn't "complete" and entirely usable unless is complemented by the protein in grain, etc. For example, there is more usable protein in soy if it is complemented with rice. So what counts and how exactly to figure it? 75 grams seems like a lot for me.

For lunch I had a tofu shake (1/2 box tofu) with berries, a whole lemon, soy milk, and flax meal. Probably 550 calories and 40 grams of protein. For dinner I will probably have parsnip soup (it has a little soy milk in it) and a piece of bread, maybe with feta. I will feel like I have had enough protein, but it will probably only come to 50 grams altogether ‹ and this is a fairly high protein day. (I didn't have breakfast.) Maybe my calorie requirements are less than 1500.
