Protein is protein...It is comprised of a finite number of amino acids that "make" a substance a protein. Vegetarians must "mix-up" and eat in conjunction the sources from which most of their amino acids come from in order to COMPLETE the protein picture. But many of us find the varying amount of fat in their animal
protein will give the scale a good boost once in a while. That is why it is good to vary it ... but if you are following a vegetarian protocol..you must be sure you are getting ALL of the essential amino acids or you will be deficient, and that is not good. Not good at all.
