    The longest-lived people in the world get an average of 10 percent of their total calories from protein. Our average is as high as 15 to 20 percent, and of course, if you’re on a high-protein diet—Atkins, Paleo, or the diets recommended by many of my colleagues, and formerly by me—that figure goes up to 40 or 50 percent.

    For example, the German physiologist Dr. Carl von Voit studied the diets of late-nineteenth-century laborers and found that they ate about 118 grams of protein per day.

    Anger and grief surge through me, pushing down the fear as we roll into a moonlit garden.

    This whole section of her being taken to the palace is so dragged out... she's said that anger and grief surged 3 times, and boy her other thoughts are also not that interesting

    When I had tried to feed her my blood-iron, she couldn’t consume it; it re-formed and stuck in her throat. That was how she knew, finally, that I was the Alchemist, and not Ina.

    Girl I read that book not even a week ago, but go off I guess, give us the recap
    I never did like recaps, I fully believe that we should consume series one book immediately after the other

    So I slip out from under the covers.

    When did she get back under them ㅠ and b4 this how could she see his eyes if he was turned to the wall????? I'm so mad at this writing. This is a flaw that my man Victor Hugo would NEVER allow. I've only read one chapter of Les Miserables.
