Protein: what do you know? 

What do you know about Protein other than you need some? There are so many different diets and theories that get tossed around it's difficult to know what you are really supposed to eat. Here is a great page from UCLA that breaks down everything you need to know about Protein; how much you need, where to get it and how much is too much. The UCLA page is very easy to read and contains none of the boring diet-calculus that most writers make you slog through. Hope this is helpful. Bon Apetit!
