by lean, I'm assuming that you're talking about meat. . . chicken breast, fish, lean cuts of beef? basically meats that don't have big globs of fat attached to them

if you're looking for low-fat protein sources though, you could also include oats, whole grain breads, chick peas, milk, eggs, and nettles

oats, breads, and peas are not good sources of protein.

chick peas have 14 grams of protein in a one cup serving, whole wheat bread has up to 6 grams in one slice, and oats can be as much as 25% protein, so maybe you just don't know what you're talking about

Chick peas may have 14g of protein, but it also has 45g carbs and 4 g of fat to total 280ish calories. Now compare my protein at 90 calories and 20g of protein with barely any fat or carbs. So If i consumed that same amout of calories worth of protein powder, I'd have 60g or protein. Also, a chicken breast has virtually no fat/carbs and in about 300 calories worth is 50-60g/protein. So how do chick peas even compare? And about bread, 6g/protein per slice is pushing it. Most barely hit 4. So lets just go with 5g as an avg. Now tell me how many slices of bread you can shove down your throat before you get full. You'd be left with a large carb overload and barely any protein. Thats the same as your potatoes, which you think are packed with protein.

LOL. We have to draw the line somewhere in what we consider protein sources or other...else it gets ridiculous.

Beans are good sources of protein. The rest of it? It counts just like everything else that has protein. Talking about percentage of protein can be a little misleading, however because of the density of some foods compared to others. It makes more sense to talk about grams per serving or something a little more concrete.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Ok, you weren't being specific about those foods not containing much protein. Of course with most foods other than dairy and meat, there is generally going to be a higher ratio of fat and carbohydrates coming along with it.

I was trying to give examples of other foods containing protein to show that although meat is an excellent dense source of protein, there may be foods that also contain relatively high levels of protein that could also fit to serve other needs. I've been putting on a lot of new strength eating a can of salmon a day, with milk, and occasional eggs, as well as a large intake of fresh vegetables and fruits. I have a kidney stone requiring surgery, so I need to be careful about what I'm taking in.

Right now I'm doing research into the idea of eating a lot more leafy greens in my diet, they have very little in the way of calories, they're loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and chlorophyl, and contain 4 grams of protein per serving. One serving seems like next to nothing when you eat it.

Gorillas apparently have the equivalent strength of being able to benchpress 4000 pounds, and this strength comes from the protein found in leaves. Their digestive system is very similar to our own.
