Mountain gorilla (from wiki )
An article has just appeared in the Irish Times (under the above title - love the title! ).
Scientist David Raubenheimer studied gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, who seasonally gorge on protein to meet their needs for carbohydrates and fats.Prof Raubenheimer noticed the primates were doing the opposite of what many overweight humans do in over-eating carbohydrates and fats to attain enough protein. His study, published in the latest issue of the journal Biology Letters, found gorillas ate a high protein diet, supplemented with fruits.
Interestingly, gorilla's diet ranges between 19% to 30% in PROTEIN! I wonder what would some well known diet promoting culprits recommending only 10%, say about that?!
