Oh yes, and here is my reply to the video,

After watching the video, and seeing this individuals view point here is what I have come to see:
- This individual consumes raw vegan foods
- He claims that the amino acids that help him to build muscle come from enzymes within raw foods

This is my response:
- I absolutely agree that we need to consume fruits and vegetables, and should limit our cooking of them whenever possible
(In fact I'm going to grab my veggies as I write this)
- However, in his second statement that he does not need protein, indeed he does not for maintaining a lean frame for the type of sport/activity that he does
* Points of contention are, that certain proteins (such as whey) have immuno enhancing properties, and are easily digestible. It does contain glycomacropeptides, oligopeptides, lactoglobulins amongst other chains of amino acids that are absorbed whole in the lumen and are directly taken up to become a part of enzymes and other protein molecules.
* Additionally research shows that in high intensity strength exercise, amino acid utilisation increases many fold.

Overall, nice opinion, but I'm going to stick with the research on this one and take protein

Ask him how much he squats! He may not need large amounts of protein, but we probably do.
