Usable Protein Contained in Eggs Versus Rice and Beans

An egg white is an ideal protein with a rating of 100% digestibility. On the other hand, the protein in brown rice is ONLY 59% usable and that in beans is ONLY 49% usable because of their fiber and other anti-nutritional factors such as those mentioned in [a 2005 report by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists International (AOAC)]. Therefore, the usability of the protein in rice and beans is approximately half that of an egg!

Now, couple this with the fact that the rice and beans contain only about half the quantity of protein that is in a comparable quantity of eggs. So rice and beans have half the protein of eggs, and THAT protein is only half as usable as that in eggs. This means that the rice and beans have AT MOST a mere one-fourth the usable protein amount of eggs. No problem, you say – I’ll just eat more of the rice and beans! Wrong. To get a pound’s worth of animal-based protein, you’d need four pounds of rice and beans! This poses three problems.

First, you could not eat four pounds of rice and beans daily. Your stomach couldn’t handle the immense volume and you’ll be unbelievably bloated all the time. Second, rice and beans contain huge amounts of carbohydrate, which will make your blood sugar levels soar! Ultimately, eating so much of these foods will make you “balloon” up to the size of a house due to insulin’s fat-storage response. Lastly, you won’t get your B vitamin requirements (like niacin) from non-animal protein sources like cereal or rice, either. Clearly, increasing your consumption of animal-based protein and reducing the carbohydrate-rich foods is the way to stay lean-for-life.
