be dangerous. ("5 Negative High Protein Diet Effects", n.d.). As a 41 year old man, I must do whatever it takes to protect my bones, my body and my overall health. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a man between the ages of 19 and 70 should consume 46 grams of protein per day. After reading examples of how to reach this amount, I am sure that I am consuming enough protein each day. There are many healthy sources of protein that contain all of the essential amino acids. These high quality protein sources include meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, and cheese. In the past I have tried high protein/low carb diets (i.e. Atkins Diet) and have been successful at losing weight. I have also experienced some of the ill effects that these diets can cause. After this class and actually understanding what fad diets do to the body, I do not think I will ever try a fad diet again. The best way to achieve overall health is to balance your diet and eat the proper sources of each nutrient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
