Thanks Doctor for the reply. I just have a follow up question about high protein diet, wouldn't it be a problem having such a diet for a person having sedentary lifestyle of sitting 40 hrs a week? I heard high protein diet can develop joints related problems for people with sitting jobs, please advise.

Brief Answer: No, proteins do not harm joints even if sedentary Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome back. It is a myth, proteins when in excess will be metabolized to produce energy and they are good for immunity, bone and joints as well. You should take a balanced nutritious diet as per your taste. I hope the advise will be helpful.
