“Time is a precious gift. Every breath you take is one less breath remaining of your life here. So, you don’t have forever to honor your dreams; you have now.” —Bronnie Ware

Reid Tracy talks with Anita Moorjani
Hello Dr.,

I’ve learned a lot of valuable life lessons over the last two days. 

I’ve learned from Cheryl Richardson that when I take a little time for me, it will mean more success in the long run for my business. I’ve learned from Nancy Levin that things will run smoother when I ask for help rather than try to do them all myself. I’ve learned from Anita Moorjani (pictured here) that when we let go of fear, we can let our true power and magnificence express itself. I’ve learned from Sonia Choquette that when I have a tough decision to make, I need to listen to my gut feelings and my intuition. I’ve learned from Andrew Harvey that one of the most powerful tools we can turn to in our darkest hour is prayer. I’ve learned from Caroline Myss that if I really want to break a negative pattern in any of my relationships, I need to learn about archetypes. I’ve learned from Bronnie Ware that time is my most precious gift and the time to honor my dreams is now.

And this was all from the Day 1 and Day 2 of the Hay House World Summit. Imagine the lessons I’ll be able to learn after listening to the remaining 80 inspiring teachers.

So my column is going to be short today because I’m going to put my earphones on again today and keep listening, and I invite you to do the same. If you haven’t signed up for the Hay House World Summit, you can find everything about it here.

My best wishes,
Reid Tracy

Is it possible to live without protein? What happens when there is too much or too little protein in the body? What is the best fish protein, and what cheese? What differs animal protein from vegetable protein? and is the pro
tein in eggs the best quality of protein?

30 interesting facts you did not know about ... Protein!

1. Protein is a core building block for the trillions of cells in the human body. without protein, no life could exist. The only material which is more common in the body than protein is water. 18%-20% of the body is protein.

2. The human body has about 100,000 different types of protein. The body them needs to grow, heal and sustain all the body's chemical reactions.

3. The word protein  is derived from the Greek word - proteios meaning "first".

4. Proteins in the body come in many shapes and sizes. Simple proteins look like "little trains" with a lot of cars. Each "car" or such protein unit, is called an amino acid. What is common to all the different types of proteins in the body is that they are all complex chemicals made from over 20 different types of amino acids.

5. While beef is a much more popular meat than chicken, the protein content is lower than that found in chicken meat.

7. In 2010, the athlete Ben Pearson, then 20, increased his protein intake to increase muscle size. However, he did not know he had a rare genetic disorder that prevented his body from breaking down proteins. High levels of protein in his body caused increased production of ammonia in the blood, causing the brain to swell and tragically, caused Pearson's death.

8. Hair is composed of insoluble fibrous and non-digested protein called keratin. Keratin protein appears in the form of a coil and a creates the horned tissue of the body, such as nails and hair. Curtin has sulfur bonds that make hair curly. The more sulfur ties, the more curly hair.

9. Proteins, like carbohydrates and fats, are considered one of the major nutrients, this is because they provide energy (calories) to the body. While proteins and carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram, fat provides 9 calories per gram. The only other substance that provides calories is alcohol. However, it is not considered one of the major nutrition sources of the food because it is not nutritious and people do not need it to survive.

10. Proteins present in certain foods can cause allergies, because the structure of the protein may trigger an immune response. For example: Many people are allergic to gluten, a protein found mainly in cereal.

11. Of all the types of cheese, Parmesan cheese that is low in sodium contains the most protein - 41.6 grams per serving of 100 grams.

12. Of fish, yellow tuna contains the most protein (30 grams per serving of 100 grams). After it on the list: anchovies (29 gr), salmon (27 g), halibut (27 g) and tilapia (26 grams).

13. The older and bigger a legume, so the amount of protein in it is larger. Of legumes, roasted and fully matured soybean seeds and adults contain the largest amount of protein - 39.6 grams per 100 grams.

14. Pumpkin seeds provide 33 grams of protein per serving of 100 grams, while watermelon seeds provide a little less than 28 grams per 100 grams.

15. Too much protein can be dangerous to the body. For example, high levels of protein can create a strain on the liver and kidneys and cause them to work extra hard to dismantle and dispose of the extra protein.

16. One of the smallest countries in the world, Luxembourg, is one of the largest meat-eating countries in the world. In Luxembourg, each resident can average about -136 kg per year. In second place are Americans with an annual average of 125 kg per person, and Austria comes in at third place with an average annual consumption of 120 kg of animal protein.

17. Although the population in India exceeds a billion, it is considered the country with the lowest meat consumption, with an average of 3 pounds of meat per person. In second place, Bangladesh with an average of 4 kg of meat per person and in third place, the Democratic Republic of Congo with an average Annual of 5 kg of meat per person.


18. The protein in eggs is considered the highest quality protein of all foods.

19. In the past, cow protein was considered the most eaten animal protein, today it is the pig.

20. Researchers found that certain mutations in protein may increase the risk of autism. Specifically, when a protein called Shank3 mutates, it can cause a disruption in the connections between neurons, which affects the chances of autism.

21. Without the protein called albumin, the entire human body would be swollen from liquids.  Low levels of albumin are found in patients with hydrating (pathological accumulation of water), in people with extensive burns, kidney disease, problems absorbing food and people suffering from malnutrition. In third world countries - protein diet and lack of food are common problems that cause the swelling of the abdomen from the absence of albumin and osmotic imbalance of body fluids.

22. Protein deficiency can cause serious health problems. For example, children with protein deficiency may develop a condition known as Kooshiorkor. Symptoms include protruding belly, thinning hair, weight loss and faded skin color. If the phenomenon is not treated properly, it can lead to stunted growth, mental disorders and even death.

  • when we start talking about protein in vegetarian, vegan, raw foods and fruitarian diets, first we need to talk to horses, cows, goats, sheep and the rest of grass eaters where they get their protein. It,s clear that they are not too concerned with it and still look healthy and buff..................protein is such a myth perpetrated by animal industry to the consumers .

  • Dear Avatar,

    • Hi Sohini, did you click on the options button at the top right of this post? Click on that and it will allow you to edit your post...click edit post. When the new box opens up with your post, highlight the text with your cursor then click on the A and the color box will open, then click on the color you want and when you do that it will change the color of your text. Preview your post again to make sure the color has changed. When it has then post your blog.
