Take away the hops and a beer now and then wouldn't be so bad.Like beer!
Seriously though, I like fermented foods a lot these days, all the starches and sugars are gone, leaving the good stuff.
A trick with the protein is to eat jello. Jello is protein, but it's glycine. How it works is that your body consumes glycine to process other excess protein specifically methionine. Methionine is good but in excess it's toxic, and processing it can ironically cause glycine deficiency. It's an artifact of modern diets, caused by eating just muscle. In the past people used to eat things like marrow and tendons.
Like beer!Something minimally processed with lots of enzymes and probiotics will be very different. It's almost pre-digested. Still not balanced, though.
I was doubtful until I saw it happen to my father-in-law.I would like to see a human study that shows protein causing any kidney damage to people with normal kidney function.
I can't find any that aren't rats or mice.
https://chriskresser.com/do-high-protein-diets-cause-kidney-disease-and-cancer/After reviewing all of the published research on high-protein diets and kidney disease, the authors of this paper concluded that while high-protein diets can be harmful for those with kidney disease, they do not harm the kidneys in healthy individuals. Since that paper was published, new studies have tested the effects of high-protein diets on renal function in healthy individuals, and generally, their conclusions are the same.

"There's no reason for healthy individuals to consume protein in amounts above the recommended levels," says Heymsfield, but he is not certain that it will actually lead to health problems. "The effects of protein are very subtle. It's hard to answer if high protein diets are unsafe."
I would like to see a human study that shows protein causing any kidney damage to people with normal kidney function.Careful with the whey protein. Over time you can harm your kidneys.
