Ms Owens, some good tips and info. However, being a nutritionist, was kinda surprised about your recommendation to consume 100 g protein daily. Especially whey protein and red meat. If a person isn't doing vigorous exercise and muscle strengthening with weights, there is no need to consume this amount of protein. In fact, this amount can be harmful to a lot of people. Kidney damage and bone loss are 2 negative affects of excess protein consumption. The World Health Organization, who sets standards for the majority of the World's population, recommends roughly half this daily amount for adults.
Whey is a waste product of the dairy industry. Dairy, specifically casein, the protein in all dairy, is a protein that is poorly digested by most humans, and can be argued that it causes much more harm than any good in a human body. Dr Colin Campbell, Cornell University, former dairy farmer and world authority on nutrition, has found through his many years of study, that casein is one of the strongest carcinogens we consume. 'The China Study'
Regarding red meat, and meat in general, The Oxford Vegetarian Study should be enough proof that consuming red meat, grass fed or not, will shorten a person's life span
As you mentioned, hemp, rice, and plant based protein is very good, more easily digestible, and contains all the amino acids meat does, contrary to what some 'health experts' might have you believe
(Am not a vegetarian, by the way. Just a seeker of facts and the truth. If you believe the Dairy and Beef industry, who have a large hand in setting the 'Food Pyramid, are truth seekers, you might want to do more research)
