As South Korea continued to develop, Spam turned into a staple food and it is often a common gift given during Korean Thanksgiving. bbc.com/news/world-asia-2…

Qanon mom saying that because of β€œprotein shedding” she cannot be near anyone in my family who has been vaccinated?

hi, I posted in here yesterday for the first time, and I have since updated that post with this new information, but I thought I would make a dedicated followup for what has recently unfolded since I’m very confused and would like to know if anyone else has heard about this from qanon family members.

my mother (45f) is now saying that I (22f) am no longer allowed to be near her or my grandmother (60+f) if I’ve gotten the vaccine because of the β€œprotein shedding”. she didn’t attempt to send a source to back up what she was saying, but insisted that she is definitely not crazy, and she can’t understand why her only daughter won’t listen to her. I was told that I will never, ever be able to see either of them for as long as I live, because I will be a danger to them.

I don’t understand what any of this means... but the thought that I will be prevented from ever entering the home where I spent most of my childhood, or that I will never be able to hug the two women who raised me ever again is almost enough to destroy me.

Has anyone else been told this? is there anything I can possibly show/send to her that would prove that this isn’t real? I know she probably won’t believe me, but I feel like I have to try.

I’m not ready to lose either of them, but I’m terrified it’s too late. my grandma has apparently been in poor health lately, and I just wanted to able to visit her before she’s gone. I was planning a trip to see them soon before this happened...

Collagen supplementation science: is there any control group with non-collagen protein supplementation? It seems like a glaring flaw in all the studies I've looked into

I used to think collagen supplements would just be broken down in the gut and their benefits are all snake oil. But primary literature supports that they do help with promoting collagen synthesis in participants compared to placebo. But low protein diets are common among the public and I can't believe I can't find a single study that includes a control group consuming say whey protein to confirm that the benefits aren't just higher protein consumption. Anyone done any further digging?

A word about protein

For a little while now, on this sub, I've been seeing a few bits of misinformation regarding protein floating around, as well as myself and others getting downvoted each time we correct them. I do not claim to be an expert, but I've been vegetarian for almost a decade and have tried different forms of it over the years.

I know we all hate hearing comments from relatives or people around us like "Where do you get your proteins then???", but there are interesting considerations to be made when we become vegetarian.

Here are a few facts and things to keep in mind:

  • An average sedentary male needs 56g/day, and 46 for a female. The more active you are, the more you will need.
  • Protein is an absolutely essential part of your meals, as it helps repair your tissues, bones, muscles, etc. They have tons of essential functions.
  • I've read a comment recently stating that you could get enough of them from vegetables. Unless you eat a truckload per day, that is simply not possible. At 2-3g/100g for most veggies, think of how much you'd need to eat to reach your recommended amount.
  • Also recently, someone has said that people ate too much protein and that it made them fat and unhealthy. The saturated fat and calories from meat (or cheese, or lots of other less healthy sources) will make someone fat and unhealthy, not protein. The protein amount that will cause issues will start around 2g/kg. That is very high and takes a lot of dedication to attain as a vegetarian. So this is a non-issue for (most of) us.
  • You can absolutely build muscle and be as fit as you want without eating meat, but it requires conscious choices (I'm up 12kg myself). So tell your uncle/dad/dumb gymrat buddy that he's wrong.

Speaking more candidly from personal experience, I can say that being more careful about my intake has made a huge difference. For the first 7-8ish years, I would eat generally healthy and balanced, but without caring much for protein, B12, or anything like that. I was skinny as I'd always been, generally healthy, but I started realizing that I was often tired and simply could not put on kilos to reach a more healthy weight. A few years ago, I started taking B12 supplements and eating A LOT more protein, much less processed food, as well as exercising regularly (which played a huge role, of course) and my

Protein -- what's the science behind the wide range of recommendations?

A little while ago I started deliberately increasing my protein intake to help with some minor weight loss (8 pounds down, about 4 to go!). Despite the deliberate increase, I doubt that I'm getting more than 20-25% of calories from protein, usually less. I've gone back and forth on the importance of protein. When I was younger, I veered toward a mostly vegetarian diet and thought that I was getting enough protein that way (I know that you can but I don't think I necessarily was). Now I'm eating more meat again, but my husband and son are vegetarians, and I worry that they don't get enough protein... just like my mother always used to fret about when I was a kid. We are all physically active and I'm not young (50).

The recommendations I've seen range from 10-35% of calories (plus one weight loss diet that recommends 40% protein, but that's an outlier). For grams per unit of body weight, it ranges from 0.36 grams of protein per pound or 0.8 grams per kg to triple that amount.

Has anyone seen a strong argument for eating on the lower or higher end of that range?

Weight gain protein powder causes constant diarrhea

Ever since then I have been getting constant diarrhea in the morning when I woke up. I know is not a legit brand like whey protein. But still I might be allergic to it since they are protein milk powders. I don't know if I'm lactose intolerance even though I could consume dairy such as milk teas and chocolate without having stomach problems. What protein powder brand should I buy?
