I am totally with you. After ready the first part of the China Study, I am trying to go by its recommendations. I have to tell you, even on fresh fruits and veggies, it is darn hard to keep protein at 10%. I have ended up at 12% all week and that was with careful planning. For me, this is more than enough to continue to build muscle and to continue to get stronger.
I think protein is an obsession because our culture has made it an obsession through it's dieting practices and USDA nutritional standards. I think that it is important to track as many nutrients as possible as there is such interconnectedness in how these nutrients react in our bodies. Fresh fruits and vegetables have so many other things to offer besides macronutrients. That is why I think they are so important.
