  • A big YES for Qzark

  • The protein leverage hypothesis was originally proposed (in 2005) by a pair of zoologists, S.J. Simpson and D. Raubenheimer, based on their research into the natural diets of a variety of animals. They have recently published their own book on the ideal human diet, called “Eat Like The Animals”.

    Their recommended target for protein intake is 15-20% of total calories, based on age: young adults and pregnant women at 18%, middle aged adults at 15%, and over 65 at 20%. So for someone eating 2500 calories per day, that is 95-125 grams of protein per day. That is significantly higher than the minimum RDA, but is a lot less than what the Carnivore Diet folks would consume. I would imagine Ted is also eating well above that level. Simpson and Raubenheimer are definitely not in the “more is always better” camp when it comes to protein (and they came up with the hypothesis).
