In this paper, the writer explains the effects of a lack of protein and too much protein in one's diet and reveals the nutritional elements that are lacking in his present diet. The writer relates his first nutritional goal that is to consume between thirty and fifty percent more in the protein, dairy and vegetable categories and his second goal that is to continue incorporating multivitamins into his diet, but to make this a joint effort with the first goal. The writer outlines his next two goals that are related to physical exercise and the impact that it has on his daily life. The writer also emphasizes that implementation of this plan is in his best interest if he hopes to live a long, full and healthy life.
From the Paper:"I am one of the millions of people around the world who do not consume enough protein. The reason, in my case, is because I do not eat meat. A lack of protein in my diet, I have learned, can lead to a condition called kwashiorkor and can cause problems such as "growth failure, loss of muscle mass, decreased immunity, weakening of the heart and respiratory system, and death" (Harvard School of Public Health, 2007). However, there are several easy ways that I can get protein into my diet; at least the minimum requirement. Protein is found in other foods that I eat such as milk, peanut butter, and fish among many others."
