InquilineKea Posted January 10, 2016 Report Share Posted January 10, 2016 Are there any downsides to using beans/lentils as the primary staple of my diet? The one thing is that they are high in protein (esp. leucine in lentils), which could elevate mTOR signalling, but it's also possible that protein-rich plant foods may not elevate mTOR signalling as much as protein-rich animal foods.
