    Do you have a favorite protein source? Fish? Lean (4% fat) beef? Tempeh? Cheeze? Turkey? Is fresh or frozen fish better than canned and by how much? How many grams of protein do you suggest per pound of weight/day? Are there any advantages of BMI’s below 22? Thank you.

      It is important to eat a variety of proteins. All of the options you mention should be used as part of a balanced nutrition plan.

    Looks like a great resource you’ve created here. Just wondering if you have any opinions on Dr Dwight Lundell’s theory on cholesterol and heart disease?
