In light of the fact that we are regularly reminded of the dangers of red meat, many have cut back on meat and are unable to thrive with the energy they once had. In addition, we are told with good reliability that all fish carry unhealthy levels of mercury and therefore fish is on the “not to eat” list. Many just eat tons of chicken which, unless it is free range and organic, has its issues. Perhaps there are even more of us who just can't stomach the thought of eating animals and become vegetarians. While I am still a great fan of a mostly vegetarian diet, I find few are able to pull off vegetarianism well. Over time, an unhealthy and imbalanced vegetarian diet can cause a litany of health concerns. This is such a common presentation I felt it was important to create a quiz to help screen folks for the nutritional woes of a diet lacking in adequate protein.
If you have answered yes to any of the quiz questions and you are a vegetarian or eat meat or fish less than three times a week, you may be protein deficient. Ask your doctor for a blood test to confirm the levels of protein in your body, and watch this great video for information on Protein Deficiency Symptoms and the solutions to restoring protein balance in your body:
