Taking Protein Foods That Are Low In Calories
« on: October 29, 2018, 03:40:51 PM »

The protein foods are the first ones to be considered in a reduction diet. No one is supposed to live exclusively on proteins—though people have lived on them without ill effects. Some people say that too many proteins cause  acidosis, but you needn't worry about that you'll undoubtedly eat enough other foods to prevent this.

Meats are among the best source of good proteins. Explorers have lived on meat alone, and have remained in good health, year after year. And our ancestors are supposed to have lived on meat—raw meat at that—and lived long and survived hardships. Today, we'll cook our foods—even if we destroy a part of the proteins. And we'll combine them with other foods, for a balanced diet.

The internal meats were considered the best sources of protein. They are still good. But all meats contain complete proteins—all of the amino acids. The best meats for good protein value are liver, kidneys, sweetbreads, brains, heart, lean beef, chicken, tongue, lamb chops, steak, turkey, stews, roast beef, pork, veal and tripe. The dark meat of poultry has a slightly higher protein value than the light meat, but both are excellent.

All dairy products are high in protein, though, of course, on a reduction diet, it really can't matter to you whether or not cream or the cheeses that are high in fat contain protein, too, for you can't have them. Luckily, there are excellent dairy products which have a low fat content, and are high in protein as well. These are buttermilk, skimmed milk, cottage cheese and pot cheese. These will form an important part of your high-protein diet.

For a long time, now, it's been thought that many types of heart disorders were due to a high cholesterol content in the diet. This was based on the fact that cholesterol-like deposits have been found in the coronary blood vessels, the occlusion of which causes hearts to fail. It  was found that people who suffered from coronary occlusion often ate foods high in cholesterol. However, other people ate the same foods and suffered no heart trouble. Now, they find that the trouble is a lack of the factor necessary for the proper metabolism of cholesterol. Dr. Ancel Keys, Director of the University of Minnesota Laboratory of Physical Hygiene, conducted a study, with 482 men as subjects, and found that the body produces cholesterol despite the foods you eat. He found that eating dairy products, meats, and eggs—all high in cho¬lesterol content—does not lead to increased cholesterol in the blood. And that even foods that contain no cholesterol may raise the cholesterol level of the blood. By reducing the consumption of high-protein foods, the diet lacks essential nutrients. Nutrition scientists are agreed that an adequate diet should include dairy foods, fruits, meats, fish, eggs, vegetables and cereals.
Practically all sea foods are high in protein. By omitting the fatty fish, you still have a large variety to chose from. These can form the main dish of a meal—or an excellent first course. High in protein are oysters, clams, shrimps, salmon and tuna fish—when served without too much oil—and practically every kind of fresh fish, both from fresh and salt water. These allow a varied and well-flavored diet, even when limited to non-fattening foods.

All nuts are high in protein. The only trouble is that they are high in fat content, too. They may be substituted, occasionally, for meat, or used in a diet that is poor in protein and fat, but they can't be eaten in large quantities with other fattening foods. Peanuts—which are not
 
nuts, but a vegetable, they tell me are high in protein value. So are almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistaschios and pignolias. Go slow with these, though many vegetables that are high in protein are, alas, fattening, too, so they cannot be eaten in large quantities. The highest in protein are all types of soya beans. Next are lentils, corn and lima beans. Peas and potatoes contain proteins, too. All green vegetables contain valuable proteins, vitamins and minerals, give bulk, and are needed in every reduction diet.
