The worst protein sources

CAUTION: Choose proteins carefully

RATE:  
 

People are always telling you to eat more protein and giving you advice on what are the best protein sources. How about the worst proteins? What protein choice can ruin your body and halt your progress? Let’s have a look…

Nuts

Nuts are not a good source of protein. They are a good source of essential fats and can curb your appetite.

Sausages

Heaven knows what’s in them. In either case, sausages are not a good source of protein.

Ground Beef

Contrary to popular belief, ground beef is not a good source of protein. Steak is.

Worst protein sources

Quinoa

At best, Quinoa is a below average source of protein. Vegetarians love it but if it’s protein you are after, Quinoa is not great.

Seeds & grains

Seeds and grains are not high in protein. You don’t see muscular people who got there by eating seeds and grains!

Conventional, non-organic meat

Typically, ordinary supermarket meat is full of protein. However it is worth-while pointing out that while it is high in protein, normal meat is also “unhealthy” and not a good source of protein if you can afford better meat.

Normal meat is from animals that are usually mistreated, fed grains and foods they are not used to and pumped full of drugs and antibiotics. If you can, buy organic.

Legumes

These are an incomplete source of protein with few amino acids and difficult to digest.

Rice

Another food item with low digestibility and an incomplete amino acid profile. Rice is not a top protein food if you are looking to build muscle or keep protein intake high.

Milk-shakes

Whilst milk-shakes sound like a good idea for getting protein in, you end up putting so much sugar and carbs in your body that they put the protein content to shame.
