How do low protein diets help the environment?

    Well simply put, more nutrient rich or protein rich foods require more nutrients from the environment to grow or be produced. One example is by reducing protein consumption by reducing dairy, egg or meat intake you can reduce the metabolic load that it placed on the environment. The production of animals and animal byproducts requires more resources and produces more waste than the production of plants. This is because resources are required to produce plants which then the feed animals. The animals grow from these nutrients as well as convert them into energy. Then more energy and resources are required to process the animal products before humans can consume them. Now if humans just ate the plant material there would more efficient transfer of energy and nutrients because you would be removing a trophic level process in the transfer of nutrients from the environment to humans.

    A low protein diet is not necessarily good for the environment. What IS good for the environment is a diet where most of the protein sources come from plants instead of animals, for the reasons RichardFisher explained above.

    The exact amount of proteins all of us take really needs to be nicely balanced, given that getting large sums of proteins or perhaps ingesting them in low concentrations can cause significant health side effects. On the other hand, if you wish to have a great muscle tissue, we must be aware of all the proteins we take. During the next few sentences we intend to try and answer the actual dilemma * What amount of protein we must have a day?

    Once we compare and contrast the number of calories we get plus the number of proteins we require, there’s a simple and easy formula saying that proteins must make 20% of your whole number of calories each day.
