Why do we need to eat so much protein? A.a. can be reused

... But I think the more important reason is that through processes like gluconeogenesis, amino acids can produce other types of compounds through deamination, but other types of compounds cannot produce amino acids because an amino group is required, which can only be obtained from protein. So ...
