And of course, higher % of protein brings higher % of fat, as well.


The validity of eating protein to 'lose body fat' & 'maintain lean muscle'

is the result of heavy Marketing by the National Livestock & Meat Board,

California Dairy Farmers & the American Egg Board. 

Funny how people have bought into this hype!

I don't consider chicken or eggs to be unhealthy and I don't consider all cheese to be unhealthy either.
